We are a small club centered in the Puget Sound area. The club was founded in 1978 by a few autoslalom enthusiasts (including Gordon) who noticed that there were lots of marque clubs in the area (Porsche, Triumph, MG, Mustang, BMW, etc.), but no Datsun club. Our original emphasis was autoslalom competition, not by definition but simply by majority interest.
As time went on, our membership grew and the new members wanted to include more activities than just cone-busting. We branched out to include road racing, rallies, and other events that were more family-oriented. We have always tried to be responsive to the immediate interests of our membership. Our events provide a good balance of interests for both the competitive and non-competitive car enthusiast. We participate in and sponsor autoslaloms, rallies, tours, car shows, parties, and even some non-automotive activities like visits to the local zoo, aquarium and science center.
We publish a monthly newsletter called the NWDEletter and provide our members with a good network of support for resolving technical problems, locating parts, providing links, and generally helping out in whatever way we can. We have negotiated parts discounts at several local Nissan dealerships. Some of our current members have 510s, several have Roadsters, a few have Zs, and some have all three, although this balance changes over time. Join us and become a NWDE member. Our dedication is to the preservation and enjoyment of all automotive activities, particularly those involving Datsun/Nissan/Infiniti vehicles.
The latest NWDELetter has been posted to NWDE News.
