SkidZ Raceshop Drift Event @ZCON

The SkidZ drift event and Z reveal at ZCON was a blast! Nothing broke on or off track except my wallet with all the tires I went through! I really want to thank everyone that did a paid ride along or bought a cup or shirt, that helps so much with being able to go out to these events and put on a show!

Please take a moment to watch the video that Momentum Media put together for the drift event/real life Z reveal!

The New Nissan Z

The amount of build up for the new Z is absolutely crazy. Last year when the Proto Z was announced during ZCON 2020, I think every enthusiast was watching the reveal live on YouTube. I couldn’t have been the only one that was so happy they were on the verge of tears 😂 So when ZCON was coming around this year I knew I would have to go, especially since Nissan was making another announcement about the Z…and hoping it would show up. Well… it did! Here are a few photos…. I’m going to need one in white. Stat.

ZCON Thursday

Thursday started a bit hung over and late with another Starbucks…just call me basic. We met up with Tyler and Steph with the Q50, and got some Mexican food for lunch. After lunch we all took a dip in the pool trying to catch a tan. At about 4:30 Eric with Momentum Media and I went back to pikes peak to try and get some more rolling shots and photos with different lighting. I don’t have all the photos yet, but the ones that are finished are below… and damn.

ZCON Wednesday

Wednesday started with a Starbucks at the hotel lobby. We met up with a few friends we’ve been hanging out with since the pikes peak run the day before and wanted to get lunch and a photo shoot in. The first spot I found on Yelp lead us nowhere, called the number and they were also closed for the rest of the year… who knew? So I quickly googled ‘pretty scenery restaurants in Colorado Springs’ and the third one that came up had the best photos of their views, it was called ‘The Grand View Dining Room at the Garden of the Gods’ we didn’t realize it was such a nice restaurant/club, so, a little underdressed we all really enjoyed a really good meal and some beautiful views.

After lunch we hung out at the host hotel for a bit and caught up on some social media things, photo things, etc. We decided to go back to Garden of the Gods where we all did some filming for the ZCON video that I’ll be posting once it’s done… but trust, it’s going to be killer.

After watching the sunset we went back to the host hotel where we had dinner and drinks, cruised to the bar where everyone seemed to be hanging out, then off to the second floor were there’s a larger room where people in ZCON can hang out, drink, play cards, and chat. Such a fun night.

ZCON Tuesday

My first day at ZCON 2021 was awesome! We started at Pikes Peak with a group of about ten cars per run group. We were told not to do over 30 mph, which is understandable, the speed limit on the mountain is 30mph and the hair pins are intense and banked. We started filming for my ZCON video with our run group… the footage sneak peaks I’ve seen are absolutely killer.

Once we got back from Pikes Peak, there was a Suds and Shine area at the host hotel. Basically an area with a car wash station to clean off all the dust your car accumulated up and down the mountain. It’s also a place where everyone can see each other and chat and hang out.

From the Suds and Shine we left for the Opening Ceremonies and the Z Reveal Party! The scenery was absolutely gorgeous there, and the venue was beautiful. It was an awesome feeling being literally surrounded by other Z enthusiasts while watching the new Z being revealed via YouTube. I almost had a ‘I’m not crying, your crying moment.

ZCON San Diego 2014

The more and more I attend events like ZCON, ZDAYZ, and Znationals, I realize that its not about the cars. Don’t get me wrong, they are generally 70% great, but if you go to these events multiple times you have seen them before. I attend these events for the friendships I’ve made over the years. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one. I love the cars, I love the fact that the people that own Z’s generally have similar personalities. They all have the same traits but some are more pronounced than others. Here are my examples of where I think each trait originated from;


The Virginia guys are a bunch of shit talkers, if you don’t know them in real life then you would think that they were a bunch of assholes online. But meeting them in person, beneath the shit talking exterior, they are all pretty genuine guys…. except you Dave Hewitt, you couldn’t make it to ZCON this year-you suck.


The Alabama guys. I really enjoy the front ya’ll have of being shoeless hillbillies. I REALLY like that. But until last year is when I started really stalking you all on Facebook and instagram and I see why you would be barefoot… your grass out there looks amazing and your homes… if they were out here would be million dollar homes! Fuck, I’d be shoeless too, that marble flooring probably feels great on your toes.


The Atlanta guys, and I say Atlanta, not Georgia. You guys are super loud at everything and you are do-or-die kind of people, thats awesome. Now if we could get you guys with your numbers out here to SoCal. There’s only been one Atlanta guy that has been a party pooper and didn’t want to be in the selfie video-rose a stink about it… he sucks and probably will take that the wrong way because he was so serious about not wanting to be on video.


The Arizona guys, you guys have the biggest hearts. Shane, Adam, Mr Rook, Kendace, I love you. That is all.


The Louisiana guys, you have the best accents. Although when I think of Louisiana I think of Duck Dynasty, I’m glad none of you have made any of your horns into duck calls, and none of your Z’s wrapped in camo. Nice job reppin’ the Z’s out there.

The Texas guys, there are a lot of you in that state, I wish I could corral you into one area and hang out. You are the kind of guys that I just want to hang out with and probably not get sick of. You guys think a little more outside the box with your builds and care about whats going on with everyone and their builds… i’m not sure if thats because you really are interested, or if it’s to make sure you guys are a step ahead of the game ;P


❤ you all.

Here are a few of my pictures from ZCON. A few of the cars, a lot of the people. Thats what it’s all about.
