ZATTACK 2012 Z Show at Nissan headquarters, Nashville, April 13-14
The Middle Tennessee Z Club and Nissan North America, Inc. are pleased to announce that ZATTACK 2012 will be held Friday and Saturday, April 13 - 14 in the Nashville area.
For those who have not participated in previous ZATTACKs, we promise a fun filled two days for Z car enthusiasts, Nissan fans and gear heads in general. This is also a great opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of Music City USA, Nashville, Tennessee.
The events begin Friday afternoon, April 13 at 1 pm with a group tram tour of the Nissan manufacturing facility in Smyrna, TN, which produces the Altima, Maxima, Xterra, Frontier and Pathfinder. The Nissan Company Store offers a great selection of shirts, caps and other licensed Nissan items at employee prices after the tour. Tours are limited to 50 people, so please register early.
Friday evening the Middle Tennessee Z Club will host a catered BBQ dinner and exclusive private tour at the Lane Motor Museum (http://lanemotormuseum.org/) in Nashville from 6:30 – 9 pm.
The museum houses part of the Nissan Heritage Collection, most of which is not normally available for public viewing, in addition to their eclectic collection of 150+ mainly European automobiles, motorcycles and oddities. Space is limited for this private event, so please register early.
The ZATTACK 2012 People’s Choice Z Car Show will be Saturday, April 14 from 8 am to 3 pm in Franklin, TN at the Nissan Americas building, the U.S. corporate headquarters for Nissan North America, Inc. This is a Z only show.
All registered ZATTACK entrants receive a ballot to vote for the award winners. Awards are given for all six generations of Z cars in both Stock and Modified classes, as well as awards for Best in Show, and Diamond in the Rough.
Your Z car does not have to be a “show car” to enter. This is more about the people, participating and fun. We will also have raffles for products and services donated by our sponsors.
As part of the event, Nissan will also host an employee open house for their corporate and manufacturing personnel from Franklin headquarters and Smyrna and Decherd Tennessee, and cruise-in for employees
and the public to exhibit their cars which is open to all makes and models. We expect a huge turnout for this, and based on past events, the variety of cars will be fantastic.
In addition, Nissan will have an exhibit of new models, prototypes, show cars and Nissan Heritage Collection vehicles based on availability and corporate approval for public showing.
Spectators are welcome. There is plenty of parking available. The event will be held rain or shine. In the event of rain, we will move the show into the parking garage.
The Nissan Americas building will be open during the event for morning coffee, lunch in the dining room at The Grill, rest room facilities, and the on-site Nissan Company Store offers a great selection of licensed Nissan and Infiniti merchandise for sale.
In order to give back to the community, we will be collecting cash and non-perishable food donations and the proceeds from designated raffle items will go to the Nissan-sponsored Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, which fights hunger in 46 counties. Each dollar donated provides 4 meals!
After the show,we will have a few hours of free time, and that evening, those who wish to will meet at the Athletic Club Sports Bar and Grill at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Franklin, which is near the Nissan Americas building for dinner, and to meet up with friends old and new.
The Grill offers moderately priced meals in a great atmosphere.
