General Informationglennsz

The Windy City Z Club was founded in 1975 by a group of people dedicated to enjoying their passion for the Datsun Z Car. The first enthusiasts were mainly amateur racers who spent their weekends racing their Z Cars. As the club grew, Datsun evolved into Nissan and the Z Car evolved through five generations. New members brought in new and varied interests, and club events expanded to include rallies, road trips, car shows, tech sessions and social events.


The Windy City Z Club is a group of Z Car enthusiasts drawn mainly from the Chicago land Area, but includes active members from the surrounding states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana , and a few from farther states as well. Membership is open to anyone owning or interested in the Datsun/Nissan Z Car.


So feel free to explore the rest of the site for articles and photos of past events, a calendar of future events, club members cars and a new members manual of typical events and the advantages of Windy City Z Club (WCZC) membership.
