    Hello Ontario Z Car Members - The OZC Instagram feed is getting a much needed boost!

    My name is Scott Robertson and I have been a member of this club on/off for several years. I have owned a Z Car since I was 18 years old! I bought my brother’s 1971 240Z, drove it from Saskatoon to Toronto non-stop (that’s another story) and now currently own a 2010 370Z, 40th Anniversary Edition. A lot of fun times with these great Z Cars!

    I have volunteered to be the club’s Instagram lead on our social media channels, assisting Diane Dale, Eric Zondervan and Raji Gunasena. I would like to get our club more active on Instagram, to highlight and show off all our great Z Cars and possibly attract new members in the process. 😊

    What is Instagram?

    So, what is Instagram and its intended use, you may ask? For those who don’t know “Instagram, is all about photos and videos; it's a photo-sharing application.”

    To quote the internet… “Instagram is a free photo and video sharing app available on Apple iOS, Android and Windows Phone. People can upload photos or videos to our service and share them with their followers or with a select group of friends. They can also view, comment and like posts shared by their friends on Instagram. It is owned by Facebook.”

    Diane, Eric and I met to discuss the use of Instagram within Ontario Z Car and came up with some great ideas to give it a boost. If any member is interested in sharing pictures & video of their current car on the club Instagram account, I can post them for you.

    If You’re Interested in Being Featured on the @OntarioZCar Instagram Feed
    • Email me at [email protected]
    • Provide a few photos of your Z Car (up to 5 pictures and each smaller than 1mb please) (Small videos clips can also be featured, but must be short in length and small in size.)
    • Provide the year, model and very brief description and/or interesting note about your car
    • Optional : your Instagram username , and/or photo credit (who took the pictures you are sharing – it’s important to credit the original photographers!)
    • Optional : any Hashtag you want included like, #Nissan, #Datsun, # ZCar etc.… (More people will see it if you use hashtags)

    I will take your photos and descriptions and upload on to the official @OntarioZCar Instagram feed – please follow along, “like”, “tag” comment, re-post and tell all your friends!

    I can also, post pictures from our Ontario Z Car club events, cruises, etc! Or even post pictures and tag our Z Car club sponsors and advertisers (if it’s something club related).

    Since we are soon to be in the summer fun and driving season (hopefully together!) , I’ll be posting at minimum on a weekly basis. It will be fun to view cars from the app or online – and hopefully increase the club profile along the way.

    As we get more organized on Instagram, I’ll be posting more and more really cool and interesting Z Cars from other sites as well.

    How Do You Use Instagram?

    I have included, if you need it - how to setup and use an Instagram account of your own on your mobile device or for use from a local PC or laptop.

    How do I create an Instagram account?

    To create an Instagram account from the app:
    1. Download the Instagram app from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android).
    2. Once the app is installed, tap the application icon to open it.
    3. Tap Sign Up With Email or Phone Number (Android) or Create New Account (iPhone), then enter your email address or phone number (which will require a confirmation code) and tap Next. You can also tap Log in with Facebook to sign up with your Facebook account.
    4. If you register with your email or phone number, create a username and password, fill out your profile info and then tap Next. If you register with Facebook, you'll be prompted to log into your Facebook account if you're currently logged out.

    To create an Instagram account from a computer:
    1. Go to
    2. Click Sign up, enter your email address, create a username and password or click Log in with Facebook to sign up with your Facebook account.
    3. If you register with an email, click Sign up. If you register with Facebook, you'll be prompted to log into your Facebook account if you're currently logged out.

    If you sign up with email, make sure you enter your email address correctly and choose an email address that only you can access. If you log out and forget your password, you'll need to be able to access your email to get back into your Instagram account.

    Check It Out!

    I hope you find Instagram fun and exciting to use and look forward to sharing your photos very soon on the @OntarioZCar Instagram account.
