Well, which clubs then because the Z is a world car - in the UK we used to hold International events....we, as a club over here always invite people from the UK to ours.......I don't recall being talked to when the thread was first started.

Agreed, so get the word moving, use FB and whatever else but make it go with a bang - not 50 or 100 cars but hundreds but in order to do so, there must be something to attract Z owners from afar and that afr might be Scotland, Northern England, Cornwall, Devon and Kent....it takes something to get people out the door and in their Zs to battle with traffic jams etc so a venue must be found and something to do other than sniff under each other's bonnets !

The event is being held in the UK and how you invite overseas club to an event when you do not know what and when the event is beyond me

Off course as well as asking all members what they would prefer we also would like Nissan to be involved in a celebratory meeting and they have said they are already thinking about a celebration and would like to include car clubs, how ever they have said it won't be properly discussed until the next financial year so again we will need to decide whether wait for the outcome of their financial planing or decide to do our own thing and then take the chance of two celebratory meetings being close together or even on the same day

And yes sadly I overlooked the 280ZX's 40th

How do you invite ANY club without a date or venue ?

My advice is to forget Nissan as even IF they do something, it most probably won't be something in the interests of club members ie perhaps a corner of their motro show stand with '50 years' banners above their fleet 370Z !

Decide upon the type of venue, then the place, then the date.

Zs are not Austin A40s so members like to 'drive' them - the Bruntingthorpe idea isn't bad as part of a touristic weekend and/or concours ?

Even the vets are out driving today down to Brighton.

Agree with Sean,Nissan havnt really give a toss in the past about the older Zeds so pick a date and venue that suits the clubs involved and if Nissan invite the clubs to their party then it’s up to them if they go

Hi Guys,

My tuppence worth....

The E-types got a shed load of attention last year with a round Britain relay tour for charity. You could do as many or as few of the stages as you liked.

How about something similar for all Zs and then finishing at Silverstone Classic (or similar) with a parade lap?

I have a copy of their route and the hotels used etc so at least some of the donkey work will have been done.

Just a thought, Nick D.
