The New Z-Bash 2016 - Datsun Roadster Invitation

Postby [email protected] » Mon Feb 29, 2016 6:20 pm

Since we have some extra room at the 2016 Z-Bash car show (at Angel Stadium of Anaheim), we're inviting a few select Performance Brothers to the Z. That list will always include Datsun Roadsters! The New Z-Bash weekend is Friday through Sunday, May 13-15, 2016, with the big car show being on SATURDAY, May 14th, and a Track Event on Sunday, May 15th. We've enjoyed Roadsters coming to the show in previous years, and they are always a hit with the show patrons. Note that the Saturday show is now FREE. You can review all of the details on our Z-Bash page. Here were a couple of awesome Roadsters that came to the 2002 show!

We went all the way back to 2001 to find these Roadsters that came and enjoyed the show. We'd love a 15 year update at this year's show!

Hopefully next year. I have a 70-2000 in the works, and my daughter is building her 66-1600 (yup, a 19 yr old kid loves roadsters and is rebuilding it)

For the record would you accept a Datsun 1967 RL411 Super Sport Sedan?

That is seriously awesome. I'm sure she and the 1600 will be inseparable! Hope to see both of you in a future event, how many dads and daughters can say they went on a road trip together, each one in their own restored Roadster? Absolutely priceless.

We would absolutely love having your 67 SSS here! I mentioned it to Greg, and his smile widened (read: he would love to see it, and hopes you can bring it), we'd all love to see it. Hard to love 510s and not 410s/411s!

It is still early, but so far there have been 9 Z-Cars & a Roadster sign up for the Track Day at The Streets Of Willow Springs on Sunday, May 15th, 2016: A 370Z, 3 350Zs, a Z32, 4 240Zs, and a 68 2000 Roadster. Hopefully many more of you boys and girls decide to come out and play! Just remember that there are only so many cars they can accept for a given Track Day. Don't hesitate, sign up before all the Honda guys do! Roadster > Honda. Just go to our Track Day Page for all of the details.

Please help us out! We made the 2016 Z-Bash Car Show no charge and registration-free to make things as hassle free for our customers as possible. We do, however, need an idea of how many will be joining the show, so we can plan for the ball park (pun intended) number of cars that will show up at Angel Stadium, and avoid creating any hassles by not having registration.

So we're asking all to RSVP who are likely to come to the show (even if you're not certain yet) on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. You can simply let us know through this forum, or by emailing [email protected], or giving us a call at (800)633-6331, or telling us when you stop by our showroom. There is even a fan page now on Facebook, where you can RSVP.

Car Show Update: Just Confirmed! The first (up to 500) to bring their Z/Roadster/510/Skyline/GTR for entry into the car show will get a complementary 2016 Z-Bash/Abraham Memorial T-Shirt.

Track Day update: For those of you considering a fun road trip to Willow Springs, here is another update, the Sunday, May 15th, 2016 Track Event is now up to 20 Nissan/Datsuns, with 13 Z-Cars, and certainly more to come! Should be a blast!

Z-Bash Final Updates!

Postby [email protected] » Thu May 12, 2016 12:17 pm

Friday Update: A Garage Sale, a specific Friday Night Only Showroom Sale, food (rumor is Pizza), and lots of Z-Cars. What could be better? Starts around 5pm at our shop in orange (1139 W Collins Ave).

Saturday Map Update: This map shows where to enter Anaheim (Angel) Stadium for the Big Car Show on Saturday, and the directions between Motorsport Auto and Angel Stadium. All Show Entrants AND Spectators will enter the Angel Stadium Parking Lot from Orangewood Avenue. Please remember we need those who are driving in a Z-Car, Roadster, 510, Skyline, or GTR to show up before 9am for show or Z-Attendee parking. Spectators coming in other vehicles please arrive at 10am (or remain in the visitor parking area, so as not to interfere with entrant parking). For a simple link to add to your mobile device, just use thezstore.com/map.jpg. Thank you!

Saturday Z-Cars For Sale Update: Unfortunately, since we didn't make registration "mandatory" to join the For Sale area, registrations are running at a fraction of previous years. Judging from those years, many more than these will be showing up "For Sale". Here are the Z's that have signed up to be in the For Sale area so far.

If there are any spaces left, we WILL now be able to take your Dyno signup and payment right at the show. Just visit the Motorsport booth to see if any spaces are available. You can sign up through Friday at noon Pacific, by giving us a call at (800)633-6331. If you wait until the show, please bring cash. See the Motorsport Booth representative if you wish to reserve a Dyno run but have only a credit card, and we will direct you. Thank you.

Saturday Showroom Sale: Remember that there will be special Show-Only deals available at the Motorsport Showroom Saturday afternoon. The showroom will not be open Saturday morning.

Saturday AM Carbon Canyon Update: The meeting place is Costco Wholesale, 22633 Savi Ranch Parkway, Yorba Linda, CA. Please show up early (before 7:30). Please check your fluids, tire pressures, and have at least 1/2 tank of gas before arrival. Also, please RSVP to Ian from Group Z at [email protected], so they know how many Z-Cars to plan for! Thank you.

Saturday Show Help: A few notes to save you time and trouble. There will be room for folding chairs by your car in the parking area. However, no EZ-ups can be used in the show parking area, so please do not bring them. Alcohol is not allowed. Selling of merchandise is not allowed. Advertising, Flyers, or Promotions are not allowed. Cooking food within the stadium lot is not allowed. Drones are not allowed. If you need to bring your car on a trailer, please contact us ahead of time at [email protected] before 5pm Pacific Friday for details. Do Not just show up with a trailer. Portable restrooms are located behind the "Big A" sign. Food trucks will be located near the "Big A" sign. Information, assistance, additional T-Shirts, and more will be available at the Motorsport Booth & Stage near the "Big A". Cash only. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sunday Track Day Update: As of this post, there are 24 Z-Cars and 38 total Nissans signed up for the Track Day. They have added another intermediate group, so all groups are still available, however there are only a few spots left in total (less than 10 I believe). If you want to get in on the fun at The Streets Of Willow Springs, sign up quickly! Just want to Spectate? There are places to watch from, and $10.00 gets you in. In addition to all the Z-Cars, there are also GTRs, Vipers, 911's, Corvettes, an M3, a Legends Car, and many others. Get the details at our Track Event page, and be sure to grab the discount code before you click over to Speed Ventures to get signed up. 24+ Z-Cars?? This will be a blast!

Finally, have a safe trip, take lots of pictures & videos, and have a blast.

Even though it was the first year they were invited back, with limited advertising, there were still some great Roadsters that came to Z-Bash, one of them even won an award! Thanks to all from Greg & Your Motorsport Team!
