I ran across the Japnese Classic auto show website recently. Looks like it is held in Long Beach sometime in October of each year. Anyone out there ever attended? It looked like a ton of old Toyotas and Datsuns. Cool stuff. Comments?? Thanks.
Yeah, I was there in '06. I made a day trip from Monterey, 4+ hours each way.
I'm a big fan of the datsun 510s, 240Zs, '71-74 toyota celicas, FJ40 land cruisers, AE86 corollas, Mazda rx3s. My wall paper is a blue s30 with a modified G-nose. I saw an 07 pic of the same car but missing front pieces? I still have the '06 flier stuck inside my windshield on my 240sx.
It's nice because it's all old school up to late 80s. The old T.O.R.C. meets used to be all old toyotas owned mostly by filipinos, but now encompass 'new' school Lexus (VIP) and Scions.
MaxNine > the 2tgeu motor came from the Ra22 celica from back in the days. The head was designed by Yamaha and it came with twin sidedraft carbs. Twin cam as well then there is the big boy the 18RG which came in the old school Chaser.
BlacksportD> thanks for the compliments bro. I will get the rubbage handled by this weekend and start using her for my DD. As for the redtop, I need to start saving parts for the ITBs and I know a very good friend of mine will handle the EMS on both my rides LOL.
