In January 1980, I purchased a 1979 Datsun 280ZX with the Grand Luxury Package of options. The color was called Champagne/Mahogany which is a rich brown body with a lighter brown hood. Among the options were cloth upholstery and aluminum wheels. Of course, its name is Brownie and it sits in my garage with antique plates on it. In the 38 years that I have owned Brownie, I have never seen one like it until . . . .
On Tuesday of this past week, I drove to the Y in my daily driver, Betty. More on Betty at a later date. I did my swimming, walked out the front door, walked the cross walk, looked to the right in a parking space, and was frozen in my tracks. I thought I was staring at Brownie. Then I checked the plate. It was an antique plate but a different number. It was Brownie's identical twin including the aluminum wheels and the cloth upholstery.
I went to the desk and asked if it was possible to identify the owner of Brownie's identical twin. Of course not. Then I looked around at the people inside to try to match them with Brownie's identical twin. How do I do that? The only thing I could do was to sit out front and wait. After 30 minutes of waiting, I gave up. Brownie may never meet her identical twin, unless . . . .
If you are reading this and you are the owner of Brownie's identical twin, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
