Hasn't it been dead for awhile now? Then I clicked on the link.
They used a picture from 2004!

Yep. That Black Roadster is one of my favorites from 20 years of images! Greg and the rest of us have always loved Roadsters, we just always haven't been confident we would have enough space, so we haven't been able to actually invite Roadsters for almost 10 years. Some showed up here and there anyway in recent years, like this image from Z-Bash 2013, but not as cool as the Black one IMHO :)

My personal all-time favorite Roadster also came back in the early 2000's. This is what I'd like to do as a project someday:

In years past, it has fallen on the same weekend as Solvang - not anymore!
Best of all it's free - the organizers are just looking for a RSVP so they can adequately prepare.
Hope to see you there!

I signed up. It's local and should be fun. Plenty of food within walking distance too.
Sorry about the Dyno confusion Greg, that would be my mess up. I hope to record your Roadster on the Dyno Saturday.

Hopefully all the farther you'll need to walk is to the "Gourmet" Food Truck of your choice! We are confirming a few good ones. I don't have it nailed down yet, but I think Dogzilla will be there... :D

Maybe that's why they moved to the stadium?
It is a big part of why. There were no permits to forget. Here is a what we put on another forum in answer about 2015:

Our continued apologies. We are still not sure why they decided to do that with no warning. It wasn't a fun situation for sure. We weren't able to get authorization for the street closure in 2015, but never expected the authorities to do what they did, since many of those parking spaces in front of our shop are used on a daily basis. Neither did they have a problem with it for any of the 3 other years we've had the smaller event, when we didn't get the authorization to close the street. This is part of why Greg went searching for a new place, and has invested in such a big venue as Anaheim Stadium for the 21st Annual Show, the New Z-Bash, where parking spaces won't be an issue.

And since Greg did invest in putting the show at Angel Stadium, we know ahead of time we'll have plenty of room for Roadsters, and will enjoy having them grace the show again.

I am sorry that I didn't originally see the restriction of just Z's for the Dyno. I just got off the phone with James @ Motorsport Auto. After a conversation with Greg Smith of Motorsport Auto they WILL accept reservations from ALL vehicles invited to the car show. This will include Roadsters, 510's, Skylines and GTR's. You can now reserve your space for the Dyno by giving MSA a call at (800) 633-6331.

Thanks for covering my mess up Gregg! Assuming you're coming again this year, make sure to say hello if you see me hobbling along with all my cameras...

Very impressive that this is a free event from the promoters.

Roadsters are 100% welcome in the "For Sale" area. Just let us know if you're coming so we can leave space, and we'll add the car/mileage/etc. up on the website for people to see ahead of time. You can "register" (free) by replying or messaging here, or emailing to zbash@motorsportauto.com.

I have been asked to take aerial pictures of the Group Z Carbon Canyon run. So I will probably be coming down to this event as part of that..

Lol. I guess "Forum Newb" fits me fine, didn't intend that to be a response to you, but to post the map for all to see if they needed it. In keeping with perfect Newbie actions, I'll post it again after this post...

Aerial pictures of the Run? How cool is that. Do share later!
