11 TH A NNUAL TZCC C AR S HOW
The Tidewater Z Car Club held its 11th Annual Car Show at POMOCO Nissan in Hampton, VA on May 19th. 41 entries from TZCC,
Z Car Association of Richmond, Emerald City Z Club, and faithful
Ken Lewis of the New England Z Car Club. The weather was perfect for the show, just enough sun but cool enough to enjoy the day.
The Food Banks of the Peninsula and Southside were once again
the beneficiaries of the proceeds. With Mike Kirsh as The Auctioneer, and from the food sales, TZCC raised about $1,500.00.

TZCC would like to Thank Henry Ayer and the rest of the POMOCO
Nissan Staff for the support and hospitality that they extent to us
each year. Henry tells me they sold 16 cars during the day, so it
worked out pretty well all the way around.

Meeting Call to Order
Todd Wagner called the meeting to order. New member John
Cowcer (1984 300ZX 2+2) was welcomed, along with Guests
Veronica Palomino (2006 350ZX convertible) and Alex
Morales (Nissan 240SX). Frank Hudson presented the treasurer’s report, showing balances of $166.44 in the checking
account and $4,163.75 in the savings account as of April 30th.
The April minutes were approved as written.
Membership chairman Paul Hollander outlined the Z Car Association of Richmond’s plan for awarding points for participating in club events, with an annual award presented to the
most active member at their combined holiday banquet/dinner
meeting.
Activities chairman Mandi Gregg discussed planned events,
including the club’s annual car show, the Norfolk Tides baseball game on June 3, and the picnic at Newport News City
Park later in June.
Motor sports chairman congratulated Rob Davis for his performance at Pungo the previous day. The Tidewater Sports
Car Club’s series at the ACU 4 facilities now require more
information for the base access list: Driver’s name, driver’s
license number, make and model of car. The access list closes
Wednesday afternoon. TSCC is running two sessions, morning
and afternoon, to accommodate the number of interested
auto-crossers. The morning session in particular fills up fast.
Coming events include the Old Dominion Region SCCA
events at Pungo and the TSCC events at ACU 4. The Langley
amateur racing series takes place Wednesday evenings, and
NASA is sponsoring a series of autocross events at Langley.
The Tarheel Sports Car Club and Triangle Z Car Club are
sponsoring a joint event at Roebling Road on Father’s Day
weekend, June 16-17.
During the past weekend, Roy Armstrong drove his 510 in the
first races of the season at Virginia International Raceway.
He took two second place finishes, one each day, and
turned his fastest lap of the weekend stuck in 4th gear.
There were 90 cars in his class on Saturday. Roy kept it on
the track, didn’t do any sheet metal damage, and had no
problems getting there and back. Steve Shell crewed.
Old business
The more-or-less annual wine trip took us to new wineries
via new driving roads during the last weekend in April. We
met the Richmond club at the Boar’s Head Inn on Saturday
afternoon for a photo opportunity. We dined at a Charlottesville brew pub on Saturday night and visited Monticello on Sunday.
New business
Future events: The National Convention is Oct. 1-5; see
details at www.flza.com. The Emerald City Z club’s annual
show is June 2 in New Bern, NC. Our own show is May 19
at Pomoco Nissan. Proceeds will be divided between the
Food Banks of Southeastern Virginia and the Peninsula,
with checks to be presented at the Mayflower Marathon in
November like last year. Volunteers are needed for all
phases of the show, and any assistance getting items for
auction would be appreciated.
The meeting was adjourned to the parking lot at 9:00.

R EMEMBER W HEN ?
(Beginning this month this new column titled “Remember When?” is for
YOUR memories of past TZCC or ZCAR events or happenings. Please feel
free to email them to me, Patti Hollander, TZCC Historian, at
[email protected] Each month I would like to include your
“Remember When?”. Paul submitted this one.)
Remember When? The FIRST Z Car Club Convention where there
were a number of TZCC members to attend. That was the 2001
Convention held in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. This was the formation of “Team Tidewater”. Leaving early on a Sunday morning at
the McD’s on North Hampton Blvd. About 14 of us assembled and
started North over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel up Rt. 13.
Picking up I-83 we arrived in York, PA for lunch. Finally finding
the West Side Grill we went in, only to remember that it was Father’s Day but we were fortunate and did not have to wait. I-83
merged into I-81 which would take us all the way to Canada
Evening of Day One found us in Binghamton, NY checking into a
hotel. We asked the hotel staff to recommend a place for dinner.
Does anyone remember “The Spot”, that’s really the name of it.
The food was great and you would not believe the desserts!
Back on the road on Monday morning, a couple of hours found us
stopping at the Nissan dealership in Syracuse just off I-83. We had a
pit stop and picked up members of the Georgia Z Club and from the
surrounding New York clubs. Fifteen Z cars out on the Interstate
makes a wonderful sight. It got very interesting going through Customs at the border. We wanted to stay together, but the Canadian
Custom folks didn’t want us to hang around. “Sorry, we don’t
speak Canadian.”
Monday is traditionally the Nissan Opening Reception and the
Texas Z Clubs Chili Party. The reception was held at a park a
little distance from the hotel and a shuttle bus was available.
Nissan had sent the prototype 350Z there. Team Tidewater (we
all had TZCC jackets and sweatshirts) gathered together and had
our picture taken with Mr. K. It was the first time that many had
ever met him. One thing I do remember, as Todd and I both
found out, DO NOT be liberal with Dave’ Insanity Sauce on
your chili!
Tuesday was the Rally and Team Tidewater was THE Team. The
countryside in that are of Ontario is beautiful and I highly recommend another visit. Wednesday was the car show which was
held inside a hockey arena (no ice). Thursday was a day at the
track. And, Friday was a day to rest and attend the awards banquet that evening. What an evening, Team Tidewater (I mean
Steve and Elaine Shell) won the Rally but the biggest news and
the best of the night was when Roy Armstrong’s name was announced as a winner of a ZCCA Gold Medallion for his 1978
280Z. I think the building shook from the yelling by Team Tidewater.
It was a great experience and TZCC worked as a Team.
Let’s hear your “Remember When?”
(How about following Steve Shell through Atlanta?)
