The Middle Tennessee Z Club and Nissan North America, Inc.
are pleased to announce that Z ATTACK 2017
will be held Friday and Saturday, April 21-22, in the Nashville area
For those who have not participated in previous Z ATTACKs, we promise a fun-filled two days for Nissan fans and gear heads in general. This is a great opportunity to meet members of the Nissan and Z car enthusiast community and also take in the sights and sounds of Nashville... Music City USA.
The events begin Friday afternoon, April 21 at 3 pm with a tour of the Nissan vehicle manufacturing facility in Smyrna, TN. This award-winning plant produces the Nissan Altima, Maxima, Pathfinder, Rogue, all-electric LEAF and the Infiniti QX60. Annual capacity is 640,000 units. Smyrna tours are limited to 50 people so please register early. Registration for Z ATTACK 2017 is required.
Friday evening the Middle Tennessee Z Club will host a catered BBQ dinner and exclusive private tour at the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville from 6:30–9 pm. The museum’s eclectic display of 150+ mainly European automobiles, motorcycles and oddities will entertain and amuse! The Lane houses part of the Nissan Heritage Collection, most of which are not normally available for public viewing which will be opened up for us. We will also tour the basement where another collection of vehicles in storage awaits, some undergoing restoration. Space is limited for this private event and registration for Z ATTACK 2017 is required.
The Z ATTACK 2017 People’s Choice Car Show will be Saturday, April 22, in Franklin, TN at the Nissan Americas building, the U.S. corporate headquarters for Nissan North America from 8 am–3 pm.
All registered ZATTACK entrants receive a ballot to vote for the winners. Awards will be given to the top three places for all generations of Z cars in Stock, Modified and Ultra-Modified classes. Additional awards will be given for Diamond in the Rough and Best in Show. A new for 2017 OPEN class invites all Datsun, Nissan and Infiniti vehicles of any year to compete for “Top Five” honors. Potential entries include cars, trucks and SUVs including Skylines, Datsun roadsters, G-series Coupes and GT-Rs.
Nissan will also host a cruise-in which is open to the public for all vehicle makes and models. No registration or fee is required for cruise-in exhibitors and spectators. We expect a huge turnout for this and based on past events, the variety of cars will be fantastic! Nissan will also exhibit new models, prototypes, show cars and Nissan Heritage Collection vehicles.
Spectators are welcome. There is plenty of parking available. In the event of rain, the show will be moved to the parking garage.
