This year's Z Convention, or ZCON as it is affectionately known, will be held at the Nissan Headquarters in Torrance, California. The ZCON itself is a convention that is held at different venues every year. In years past, it has been in Texas, and other cities. This year, Club Z  headed down to Torrance, California to join in the hoopla and the celebration that surrounds the  annual  roving Z Convention,  sponsored by the  ZCCA (Z Car Clubs of America), Group Z of Southern California, and Nissan of North America. Here are some pictures from the first day.

This is where the North Bay people met. Joe, Tasha, Robbie, Abel, Janet, Salah, and Don.
