Japanese Car Show 2010


Japanese Car Show 2010

Once a year, the Japanese Classic Car Show JCCS takes place and attracts thousands who come to look at perhaps a couple of hundred cars. This year it was in Long Beach and the line to get in was decently long. I thought there would be something akin to a Heavy Metal Parking Lot scene in the parking lot. Imagine, dudes hanging out talking about cars standing with their own car, but instead, the car show itself is a parking lot. Tons of folks camping out next to their cars. At times it looks like they want conversation about it, but at others, it seems like they're nearly picnic'ing and hanging out as if this is their once a year when they see certain friends, acquaintances, and the cars which they probably see around. It's sort like their Comic Con. I don't own a Japanese classic car, sans a Hot Wheels Datsun 510, but I wish I did. I don't know exactly what I'm looking for or at exactly. Maybe it's nostalgia. I remember tons of these cars, which are now more and more scarce. I'll admit I'm a fan of the Datsun 510, but after seeing so many at this event, I'm much less into it. I'll explain later.
