    Default Classic Japanese Car Show Oct 1 in Long Beach

    Hey guys,
    I wanted to let anyone interested know about this show. It is happening next to the Queen Mary in Long Beach on October 1. It is for '85 and older Japanese cars only. My Skyline most likely won't be running by then, but I am going to load it up on the trailer and take it anyways. If anyone is able to go, here is the link.

    Registration is limited, so get in while you can. I plan to take several pics and will post them for our everyone here not able to make the show.

    oops! moved to the correct forum! guess i was sleeping. Although, it would be nice if our 240K brothers could come to the show! I guess that whole "crossing the pacific ocean" thing complicates that a bit.

    I really hope that I can make it to this show. Every year the MSA show is over my Mom's birthday. This show is the exact date of my kid sister's birthday. I am really going to have to do some sweet talking to go.

    I have a feeling that this show is going to be a mecca for Fairlady Z's .

That being said I can see smaller gatherings in each state, utilising car clubs to ramp up interest over time in a national gathering.
    Amazing how easy it is to say , but the reality will be a lot of work for a lot of people...over a considerable amount of time. The guys of the Prince & Skyline Register of Australia called their first ever National meeting over three days in May 2004 in Beechworth, Victoria. A fantastic time, I went into Weber overload , but it kicked so many things into action on the Prince scene in Australia & New Zealand.
    Maybe fuel for another thread for further discussion?

    ** NEWS!**
    As JCCS is being joined by YOKOHAMA Tires, Toyota,
    Mazda and Nissan, some
    of the trophies will be given by them. Please polish
    your cars more than
    usual, and get ready for the voting!! Your own will
    be a judge to support
    JCCS.

    Yes, as you know, this car show is DIFFERENT from
    other import car show.
    This show is for "all Japanese classic cars", which
    means that classic
    Toyota, Datsun/Nissan, Mazda, Honda, Subaru,
    Mitsubishi, Isuzu and Daihatsu
    are all welcome to participate. That is why, parking
    will be handled on an
    "assigned area" basis, in order to let all the
    registered Car Clubs and same
    makes park together.

    We believe that everyone will enjoy, learn &
    respect the history of all
    Japanese autos, regardless the brand.

    We have 33 days left until the show, and
    Pre-Registration will be closing
    in 22 days. 22 days sounds like a lot of time, but
    in reality, time flies so
    fast as you working on your cars. So if your friends
    are waiting for the
    last minute to register, please encourage them to do
    so as soon as possible,
    if they are interested. That way, we can make
    arrangements to park all the
    same makes together, without hassle. (On the day of
    the event, gate
    registration WILL NOT guarantee parking within the
    same make, or with your
    car club)


    We will update more info as closer to Oct.1st.

    updated AWARD CATEGORIES.

    I just got my registration confirmation e-mail a couple days ago. If you guys have pre-registered as well I would think you should have gotten one by now. I was number 44, and that was with me registering last month. I bet they are up to 100 cars by now. For everyone coming out, look for the silver Skyline. That is mine. I will most likely be nearby. Stop by and chat for a while.

    Thumbs up I'm going!!!

    Hello everyone,

    I am so excited because in about two hours I will be driving down to LA and I will see you guys at the show tomorrow! I won't be bringing my car, but I will be going in my friend's orange 1800sss Bluebird. I hope to see everyone there. Look out for a 6' white guy with a blue shirt and kacky pants. I know, that doesn't narrow it down, but I hope to see a lot of people from the club.

    See you tomorrow,
    Ben

    Hello everyone. This was a great show. I caught up with some of the members and we had a great time. The cars in attendence were amazing. Unfortunately, there were no Fairlady Z's on hand. I was a little bummed, but other than that the show was awesome. I will be posting pics in a few days. I took a lot. Hopefully everyone won't mind that many of them are non-Nissan/Datsun.

    It was a great show. I think people will have fond memories of this show for some time. I just got off the phone with Mrs. Yamaguchi. She called me with thanks for my help. I told her that what I did was so little compared to their labors and that everyone I've spoken to was so happy with the way the day the had and the cars they'd seen. She was really happy to hear that. During the show, they were so busy that they had very little opertunity to really see how things were going. After they had returned the rental equipment last night, they found that they were too tired to walk, too tired to even talk.

    She said that she would update the japaneseclassiccarshow.com site soon (not today please!) with a list of the award winners and photos.

    It was nice seeing you Ben! I'm the one who ended up sunburned beyond recognition!

    Yes it was! Datsun was well represented especially Zs, Roadsters, and 510s. I learned a lot about the history of some of the other Japanese makes.
