The Z Car Club of Sydney was born in November 1989, the “midwife” being Joe Grupe. Joe’s inspiration came from the Hunter Valley Z Car Club, which had been active for some three years prior. Joe’s engaging personality and enthusiasm drove the Club forward so that by the time of the inaugural Z National Meeting, hosted by the Z Car Club of Queensland at Easter 1990, there was a significant presence from the Sydney’s Club. Eventually the Hunter Valley Z Car Club amalgamated with their Sydney sibling in late 1991.
The Club has carried on to this day sharing the knowledge gained about Z and ZX cars and fostering some great friendships amongst members with a common interest. Though more than 35 years have passed since the birth of the Z car. Parts are still readily available, and the all independent suspension and well designed overhead camshaft engines have given the Z a level of performance and handling which is equal to or better than the bulk of modern cars.
Because of the Z’s sound design the cars have competed in all areas of motor sport. A number of members have modified or improved their cars for occasional motor sport participation. They will be happy to pass on their knowledge and assist any The club supports a range of Motorsport and Social Events including Dyno Nights, Fun Runs, Observation Rally’s, Driver Training Days, Classic Rally’s, Supersprints and Hillclimbs and has occasional guest speakers at monthly meetings.
If you were thinking of buying a sports car, then join the Z Car Club, get some information and guidance, and buy a Z.
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Greyhound Social Club/ Arena Sports Club (Room 2),140 Rookwood Rd, Bankstown Commencing 8pm.
