Beginning in 2010, a group of Datsun enthusiasts from CA and AZ descended upon Williams, AZ to hold a small Datsun gathering. Originally, it was planned to honor a fellow collector that has traveled from Williams to SoCal several times to attend Datsun events.
Word spread rather quickly and the first event became the ‘Multi-State Datsun Classic‘ before the meet even took place. The excitement of the Datsun community was so overwhelming that it became an annual event. Since then, the event has grown to draw Datsun owners from 28 states, as well as Mexico and Canada, all parked along historic Route 66.
The event has now grown to encompass ALL Japanese classics built 1996 and earlier, and it’s a great opportunity to catch up with fellow enthusiasts at a relaxing, laid-back event. We’re about community and good times, and while it’s cool to pick favorites, the car show judging is informal and peer-based.
ALL proceeds from registrations, raffle tickets, and t-shirt sales go directly to support our chosen charity, Raising Special Kids. Raising Special Kids exists to improve the lives of children with a full range of disabilities, from birth to age 26, by providing support, training, information and individual assistance so families can become effective advocates for their children. This group does amazing work in the community and is a valuable and trusted resource for families, friends and caregivers. Check them out, and consider supporting them as well!
