ZCON 2022 Roll Call


Recommended Posts


I'm going to work until 12pm Saturday the 30th. I could ride down and do the award's dinner but not 100% on that. My most loved dog has to have a benign (hopefully) tumor cut off on the 25th. It's going to be $500-ish or less, he's a big dog so things cost more.

If I see you, lucky for me.

I've got a shed full of parts that someone may need. In that case I could make a run down but would need to come back home for work.

Hey, @zKars, I think this means you have to show up for ZCON since your car was featured.

Oh wow, that's neat! Sorry, no can do.

That Z passed on a few years ago, don't even have one at the moment. Dang picture makes me a bit misty, sniff.....

You-all have fun this year! Drool over the new Z for me. I'll show up again next time the show is bit closer to home.

If, God willing, my car makes it out the shop in time, I'd at least like to show up the 29th and 30th. But, then again, this is a two month suspension thing turned nine month head rebuild slug, so who knows if I'll actually make it out of purgatory by then...

The wife and I are going to drive up on Saturday morning for the car show, but not entering our car in it. We only live about 45 minutes away, but unfortunately work and family interfere with the other weekday events. For anyone who's been to a Zcon before, can you still buy t-shirts and such without registering for anything?

ZCON T-shirts are only available after they get shirts out to people who registered but couldn't attend. Other merchandise is available at the Z store at the hotel if the Z store is open. Go to zcon.org and find the schedule to see when the Z store is open.

There was a last-second contest for ZCON to win a ride with Chris Forsberg at the Little Talladega track day today, and I was one of the winners. Chris and Alex Jagger were driving an Altima drift car and an Infiniti car with each taking 3 people at a time. 

The drift track was pretty abrasive, requiring them to change the rear tires after each lap. My turn was near the end, and they used up the last mounted tires just before my group. However, one of the crew members took some tires to the local Walmart to get them mounted. While we were waiting (and the window to run the drift cars was closing), we were offered a ride in Alex's car with the opportunity to ride with Chris if the tires came back in time. We couldn't turn down the 2-for-1 special.

All I can say is "WOW!" That was a blast. Here's the video. If you EVER have the chance to ride with a professional drifter, DO IT!

Don't know that I will be able to go to that one. Not sure Canada will let me in...

or is that California?

If you choose the wrong one, you'll be a couple of thousand miles from the convention site. LOL

And for the folks thinking about flying to California for 2023, I can't remember where the host hotel will be, but I'm betting you'll be better off booking a flight to Ontario International Airport. If the hotel is toward Riverside/San Bernardino, you don't want to fly into LAX and drive across town.

Well SteveJ, I am just now seeing this post...

I live in Birmingham and only managed to make it to Cahaba Brewery Wednesday evening. Life is a balancing act and I am unbalanced at the moment when it comes to car stuff..

Hope y'all had fun.

We certainly did have fun. Join the Iron City Z Club if you haven't already so you can keep up-to-date on Z activities in your area.

In October is ZNationals, hosted by Z1 Motorsports. I'll be hanging out at track day at Atlanta Motorsports Park. The show location is about a 2 hour drive for you. https://www.znationals.com/
