Since 1999

The Cleveland Z Club started its life as the "Z Association of Cleveland, Ohio" back in the late '90's.  We are the oldest Z Car Club in Ohio with 50-60 enthusiastic members.  We hold monthly meetings wrapped around regional events and, of course, the national ZCCA convention (ZCON) event which we hosted back in 2008.

We have hosted the Midwest Z Heritage several times in the past and consider it an honor to do so again in 2019.

Meet a few of the Cleveland Z Club crew leading Midwest Z Heritage 2019

We have a dozen+ folks involved in the organization of the 20th Annual event, however, here are a few folks' contact info in case you need assistance before and during the MZH event.
