Japanese Classic Car Show 2010 Coverage…Part 1…

Just wanted to give a quick shout-out to everyone that watched the video I put together the other day. It’s received such a huge response and it’s funny because I just randomly put it together one night because I was bored. Thanks to everyone that enjoyed it, I’m happy I could give you guys some laughs. Anyways, on to the JCCS 2010 coverage…It was back at the Queen Mary again in Long Beach this year which meant that parking was going to be complete hell. As expected, it was. I ended up driving around the lot for almost an hour before I finally found a spot. I was actually about to give up and leave and on the way out of the parking lot, I happen to come up on a spot. It was just May and I there in the beginning but then Big Mike, DPK David, and the rest of the guys came by to check out the show as well. I have no idea how they managed to find parking so soon but they ended up in the lot for another hour as they tried to leave so I guess it makes up for it, haha. Alright, on to the pics. The majority of the coverage will be of the Datsun 510s. If you saw my coverage last year, you’ll see that it was much the same because I am a real big fan of those cars and the guys that are doing them up are doing an awesome job…

This was the first car I saw when I walked in. I’m also a big fan of the AE86s and this one has a Honda F20C swap and TE37V wheels that look to be very popular among the old school crowd…

1UZ-FE V8 swap in this one…

80s Celica with a 1JZ swap…

Starlet with a tucked bay and 4A-GE with ITBs…

I remember seeing this Corolla at Nisei and I finally got to take a closer look at it. Easily one of my favorites at the show. Love the color, swap, wheels, everything…even the Vision side mirrors…

Saw this little Honda at the Skunk2 Unmeet. Really interesting build and I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of it soon…

1986 Honda City that’s been in the U.S. for a couple years now. It’s cool to see it in basically the same condition but it’s not like this car is gonna go out of style any time soon being that it’s probably the only one in California…

I wonder if anyone noticed that this Corolla had a Beam’s 3s-GE swap in it…it’s a pretty rare motor stateside so it’s interesting to see it in an older model Corolla…

While I was waiting for the rest of the homies to show up, I ran into Ken Myoshi. We chatted for a bit and then he had to go cuz he had all kinds of hot ass food in his hands…

I also ran into Freddie from Autofashion. He didn’t really say anything because he was walking around in this pose all day….When he walked into the show, they charged him twice …

Big Mike…

Spotted this CVCC with a ZC swap and immaculate Enkei J-Speed wheels…

2JZ-GTE swap…

Love the simplicity of this Corolla. The bay is on point and the exterior is flawless…

Shortest radiator hose ever…haha. Love this car though…

This was interesting…

F20C swapped 510…thing must be a blast to drive. The older the S2Ks get, the easier it is to get ahold of F20C engines and put them into everything else….

Kinda iffy on the bay of this 510…It has a custom intake manifold but it was like literally sitting on the shock tower. I wonder if it had just been completed and they trailered the car there because they didn’t have time to figure out the spacing of it all. It’s also weird because the finish in the bay was like wall spackle…

Always been a really big fan of Volk GT-Ps. I had a set of 18s once but I sold it to my buddy Yukio. I remember it because he was gonna pay me in payments and the first payment he gave me was $20….twenty.dollars. Haha…but he ended up paying me for it. Took him like 3 years but hey, that’s what friends are for!!….

Shaved and tucked 510 bay…

I didn’t take a picture of the entire car but this pic alone will give you an idea of what was going on. “DATSFORMERS, more than meets dat eye!!!” -Big Mike

That’s all for today, back tomorrow with the other batch of pics from JCCS 2010…

  1. Joey, gotta say thanks for the 510 coverage, it’s best I’ve seen from JCCS and it’s on a Honda blog! A lot of people tend to write-off 510’s due to their popularity, so it’s good to see someone appreciating them for what they are. Looking forward to the next installment.

  2. Did you get any information about the reissue of the J-speeds? Enkei doesn’t have any info on their website, that i saw…really interested in them. Great coverage btw.

  3. thanks for the coverage joey.

    as for the gtps…no wonder he had a nice set. we all know yukes is always too broke to buy nice shit =) hahahaha
