The 5th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show

Saturday, October 3rd I attended the 5th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show at Hidden Valley Park in Irvine, CA. The JCCS is "America's First and Original Large Scale Japanese Car Show Dedicated to Old School Japanese Cars." For more information visit their website
There were over 400 classic (late 50's -mid 80's) Japanese cars. In attendance were models from Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, and in full force Datsun/Nissan. I am still in shock that I had no idea what a huge following there is for the surviving Japanese classic cars. People flew in from all over the country to get a chance to attend this show. If you are in the area or a Japanese classic car enthusiast you can't miss this next year!

Check out some of my favorite pictures from the show. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this blog....
