Life is a journey.  Enjoy the ride.


The Road to Happiness has Many Curves (370Z ad)

The New Jersey Z Car Club was founded in 1996 to provide people with the ability to leverage the large network of Z Car owners in our area.  Our club encompasses not only the first generation Z cars which built the foundation and heritage behind all Z-Cars, but all models that followed as well.

Our members make our club unique. This is not a club of egos or politics - we're just a nice group of folks looking to have fun. Many lifetime friendships have been forged through the club. Everyone is invited to join - we pride ourselves on our diversity. Ownership of a Z-car is NOT required and you certainly do you need to hail from New Jersey -- we have many members from Pennsylvania & New York.

We hold monthly club meetings, generally in the Bridgewater, NJ area. Check our  Event Calendar or e-mail NJZClub@Yahoo.com to contact us and get e-mails of upcoming events.  Our meetings give members a chance to network, check out other Z's, and enjoy lunch & friendships.  We freely accept suggestions to hold meeting in different regions and venues.

(1982 280ZX Turbo ad):
Our Annual Z-Car show is our most popular event and well attended by ~100 Nissan and Datsun Z cars of all models and vintages. We award honors and trophies for different models of Z cars (240Z, 260Z-280Z, 280ZX, 300ZX (Z31), 300ZX (Z32), 350Z, 370Z).  Within each model, we award first and second place trophies for Stock and Street Modified classes.  We also have one "Ultra-Modified" class, and award a "Best in Show" by attendee "noise meter". Membership in the NJZCC is not required, members of other Z-Car clubs are welcome, as are non-members.

Let others know about the club

Our club is about all elements of Z-Car enthusiasm - car shows, track events, restorations, tech sessions, road rallys, Z history, ... But most importantly, the NJ Z-Car Club is about having a good time and sharing with other Z fans in the area.
How often do you see a cool Z in a parking lot where you would love to talk to the owner?  Keep a few flyers about the club in your glove box to slip under Z wiper arms, and spread the word.
