What is the NJ Z Car Club?

The New Jersey Z Car Club celebrates all Datsun & Nissan Z cars (240Z, 260Z, 280Z, 280ZX, 300ZX, 350Z, 370Z and New Z).

Our club exists for the benefit of our members. This is not a club of egos or politics - all Z enthusiasts are welcome. We pride ourselves on our diversity and have many members from PA & NY.

Our meetings and events give members a chance to network, check out other Z's, and enjoy lunch & friendships. We hold monthly club meetings, and an awesome Annual Z Car Show, generally in the Bridgewater, NJ area. We also organize car cruises through scenic areas, photo shoots, and keep our members aware of regional Z events and other interesting shows -- check our photos from Past Events

E-mail NJZCarClub@GMail.com to contact us and get e-mails of upcoming events.

How much is my Z Car worth?

There are many factors that influence the value of your Z Car, but none are as important as Condition. Use each of the below online valuation tools to get an estimate (if available):

Hagerty valuation tools are among the best, focusing on classic vehicles of interest.

Kelley Blue Book car values focus on vehicles less than 41 years old.

Edmunds appraisals focus on 1990 and newer vehicles.

Review the valuation report descriptions (starting with #4 Fair, #3 Good, etc.). Most Z cars would fall into #3 Good or #4 Fair (unless they have been cared for fanatically, or restored with fresh interior, glass, new seals, repainted exterior, etc.). Beyond condition, there are desireability factors that could impact the value of a Z Car:

Factory Special Editions
Automatic vs. Manual Transmission
Coupe, Convertible or 2+2 body style
Modifications +/-
Prior Accidents
Mechanical Issues

How can I sell my Z Car?

Many Z cars and parts are listed and sold through our Facebook page. It is a private page (to minimize spam), but if you ask to join, you will be added in a day or two. Having some pictures and descriptions of condition, mileage, etc. certainly helps.
Beyond that, popular marketplaces to buy and sell classic cars are:
