Car Show:

The 2011 ZCCA International Convention car show will be held on Friday, July 22 at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center.  

Savannah International Trade and Convention Center

With 120,000 square feet of air-conditioned display space virtually all of it with a breathtaking view of the river front, complete(and reasonable) onsite vending services, and a beautiful area for Peoples Choice, The car show will truly be something to experience!

There are three car shows that will be organized, including People's Choice, Special Interest, and of course the formally judged ZCCA Car Show.

  • People's Choice Entrants will be outside(due to Fire Marshal Requirements) in either in a grass field (Much cooler than on the pavement) or a special section of the parking lot.  Staging of People's Choice cars will begin at 7am on Friday and will end at 8:45am-the Show Starts at 9am.
  • Judged and Special Interest Vehicle   Entrants will pre-staged in the Convention Center on THURSDAY from Noon to 9pm-if your car is not in the Convention Center by 9pm, it will NOT be getting in.  Cars will be washed outside, verified for Fire Marshal compliance and positioned inside for detailing in place and re-verified by the Fire Marshal.  All entries to the Special Interest Category other than those that have previously won a Gold Cup or Gold Medallion will have to be approved for the Special Interest show prior to the show.  

Further explanation for the car shows that will be held at the 2011 convention can be found below.

Judged Z Car Show Rules:

  • The Z Car Club Association car show rules will be utilized for the judged car show.  If you have not attended a previous Z Car Convention, it is recommended that you read the ZCCA Judging Rules document which will help explain categories and judging criteria.
  • Judging scores are tallied and winners are announced at the closing banquet ceremony.

People's Choice Z Car Show:

  • In the People's Choice category, Z's are competing with fellow Z's of the same generation:
    • 1970 - 1978 - 1st Generation (240z/260z/280z "S30")
    • 1979 - 1983 - 2nd Generation (280zx "S130")
    • 1984 - 1989 - 3rd Generation (300zx "Z31")

  • Each registered convention participant receives a voting ballot to tally up their "Choice" for each generation of Z car.  Awards are presented at the closing banquet after the car show.

People's Choice "Heritage" Vehicles Car Show

  • In the People's Choice category for "Heritage" vehicles, voting will be by car number.
  • Awards are presented at the closing banquet after the car show.

Gold Cup & Gold Medallion Car Show

  • As is tradition with the ZCCA, those vehicles awarded the ZCCA Gold Cup or ZCCA Gold Medallion at past conventions are not eligible to compete in future events against other "Judged Car Show" entrants.

    However, the ZCCA recognizes that bringing a Gold level car to convention should have some benefits.   For 2011, the convention committee has agreed to honor these vehicles with an inside display area,  a special award and a "Best Survivor" category on the People's Choice ballot voting.  
  • Awards are presented at the closing banquet after the car show.
