The GF wants to make the roadtrip to this one. 3,784kms - don't know if it will take 3 or more days to get there though.
I really enjoyed my trip to the 09 ZCon in San Antonio and would love to see more of that part of the USA.

Already gout our room lot reserved. Will be there all week. Hoping our car club will be a lot stronger so we can do a decent showing. We had a good thing going years ago. We will see if it continues soon enough

Re: ZCON 2012 Phoenix, AZ Sept 18-23

I'd love to see Nissan's proving grounds, but the expense of time lost and money spent isn't worth it to me. I hope those who forfeit the time and coin have a good trip though. Bring me back a t-shirt though Bernie

Re: ZCON 2012 Phoenix, AZ Sept 18-23

yep south carolina here. It will cost 1800 to ship the z back and forth. Plan tickets, Registration, food, hotel It could be a 4,000 trip. Cant do it!.... although I would love to see out west. Zcon in Savannah was ok for the show lots of down time with nothing to do. Needed more to do on the tentative schedule. It was only 1.5 hours from home but I think z days and znats are much better events!.. But this is just me! I heard other say that z con Savannah was a sucky Z con which was my first. Maybe I just went to a bad Z con!

Can't disagree with the less than great reviews about 2011.

Nashville 2010 and San Antonio 2009 were pretty damn good

Really looking forward to Phoenix since it will be my first time heading West for one and the guys @ Project Z32 seem to know how to have a good time
