About This Club

The Maryland 'Z Club is a group of individuals who own and drive, or as a minimum at least appreciate, the series of Z cars produced by the Nissan Motor Company from 1970 to present. The mission of the club is to unite all Datsun/Nissan Z car enthusiasts, to provide informational services to its members, to serve as a forum for the sharing of information between the members, to work in obtaining discounts and benefits for members, and to assist members in all aspects of Z car ownership. The club invites all members to participate in club activities with their cars. Our activities include road rallies, cruises through scenic routes, car shows, tech sessions, and any others that are suggested by the club members. The Maryland 'Z Club was founded in 1993 by Mark Lambert and Paul Taylor. Club Website https://www.mdzclub.org/index.cfm

  3. Didn't get much done on mine over the winter, but now that things are warmer and (kind of) more dry I finally got the engine the rest of the way torn down and it's at the machine shop at last.
  4. What will you be doing to your Zs over the Winter? My son Jake and I will be doing the following to the 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z. Install Nissan 2000 OHC valve cover Install Datsun Z Story manufactured front and rear strut bars Check for vapor lock issues Install freshly painted hood, cowl panel, and access panels Install new rear taillight frame Install Datsun Z Story manufactured JDM tail pipe Install frontend bushings Figure out why the radio and headlights won't turn on
  5. Inspired by another, similar thread on this forum, I thought I'd give this a shot. I once had a 1983 280ZX 2+2. The thing was fully loaded. Digital dash, power everything, heated seats, t-tops, 5 speed... Only thing it didn't have was a turbo. I worked at a Nissan dealership in Laurel, MD at the time (around 2000) as a tech, and I sold the car to one of the oil change techs. He gave me half the money, promised me the other half, and then took the car and never showed up to work again. I still have the title to this day, meaning technically it still belongs to me. I know that there's about a 99% chance the car ended up scrapped at some point, but since I never got any kind of notice or impound bill from the state, it's possible that the car is still intact... somewhere. The car was an ugly dark gray with a blue hood. (It was a work in progress) If any of you guys have ever seen such a vehicle, I'd love to know what eventually became of it.
  6. Updated map, doesn't make sense to drag the car hauler all over CO, AZ, NM, and TX. Will go back to Colorado Springs to pick it up visit friends and head home form there. We will make a Z Across America!!!
  7. I'd love to see it! Will do. I'm Chris. Good to meet you.
  8. Sunshine yellow is more pale, lime is bright with a green tint... Oh your off 198. Will have to have you over to the clubhouse sometime. 410-693-8184 shoot me a text, what's your name? Cheers, Kirk
  9. I think I am familiar with the Lime Yellow shade, though that one may look a bit pale since I am considering blue accents. Maryland City. Not exactly ideal for this kind of project since there isn't a ton of space, but it's way better than the apartment I lived in before...
  10. Yes indeed, that color paint camera matched to Acura Phoenix Yellow. Original color I believe was Lime Yellow, the jury is still out as that color wasn't available until 1972 here. In Japan they tried things out before putting them on the export models. if not Lime Yellow, then Sunshine Yellow. Where in Laurel do you live? I'm in Laurel quite a bit.
  11. Thanks! I have to say... I had been waffling around what color to ultimately paint my Z, and seeing your photos is making me lean heavily toward yellow. It's a nice '70s color that still looks good today. Originally this car was green (Color code 240) but I want something that pops a bit more
  12. Who's going to ZCON? I'll be there! My 15 year old son Jake and I will be hitting the road with the 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z in the car hauler. We will arrive at ZCON on 17 August after a stopover at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota (2,086 miles). We will depart ZCON 22 August headed for Grand Canyon, Arizona, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, and Dallas, Texas before returning home to Lake Shore, Maryland (5,315 miles total). Cheers, Kirk
  13. A bit late to the party it seems, but hopefully the club is still active. Just got my 280Z, and am just beginning to fix her up:
  14. Let's see some pictures of your Zs...
  15. East Coast Z Nationals are at Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals Show 18 May. I will be in Myrtle Beach this year. Mark Lambert orig240@comcast.net and Steve Weyant Sr. s2weyants@comcast.net are the POCs. Cheers, Kirk

  17. Hi Kirk, If they have consented to show their location, you can see members in the area from our member map. Simply write down the names of the members and invite them to the club area.
  18. Mike, Can you send me a list of members those that live in Maryland? Cheers, Kirk
  19. Thanks now I have the task to get the Maryland members signed up to assist with recruiting other Z enthusiasts that live in Maryland.
  20. Hi @70 Fairlady Z, your new club is set up. Next step is to invite members to the club. You can see members and other features by using tabs just below your logo header. I am typing this message in the topic area I created. You can also add new features such as a calendar to the club by clicking "Manage Club" from the first page (right side). Let me know if you need any help! Mike
