Our Approach

The  Windy City Z Club started its life back in 1976.  We are one of the oldest Z Car Clubs in the USA with 70-75 enthusiastic members.  We hold monthly meetings during the cold weather in Chicago just waiting to bring our Z's out of storage at the first sign of spring or when the snow has melted and the rain has washed away the salt.

We have hosted the Midwest Z Heritage several times in the past and consider it an honor to do so again in 2022.
