Righto, lets get this underway..
An assortment of pics of some of the cars at this year's Classic Japan - an event organized by the Toyota Car Club Australia (Vic) for the last couple years, and pretty much the largest local classic Japanese car meet/show on the calendar.
I'd gone to each previous event, and had been looking forward to this one for a while. Cleaned the cars up in anticipation.. only to find out 2days before that it was pre-entry this year..! Argh! Oh well..
What's most impressive about this then would be the turnout compared to previous years. The fact they managed to get so many people to commit to going before the actual day, shows how much bigger this event seems to be getting..
..so next year.. will be interesting to see how this keeps going!
ANYWAY moving on. Pics. It's what this is all about.
Sorry/apologies/etc again for the phone pics. For me its more than enough to jog my memory.. but for anyone else.. just move a little further away from the screen, blur your eyes, or have a couple drinks. They're not flash!
Despite this, great day for photos! Nice and overcast.. oohhhh, that soft light. How flattering..
So, starting in no particular order....
Actually, yes.. lets continue with some other Skylines...
Segue..ing from here nicely into more Nissans...
S12 Gazelle! Getting VERY thin on the ground here nowadays, and with wheels like those?! Ooof!
Moving away from the Nissans...
So great. Old Mitsubishi (or 'Mitsi' here after a run-in with a box cutter!) L300/Delica still going strong!
Vortex/Alcyone/XT.. with its asymmetrical two-spoke wheel and aerodynamic handle flaps..
This one actually reminds me of one I posted about back in 2012. Seeing that other car was spotless, manual, and had less that 100k km on the clock.. I'd say its time is finally coming..!
..yes, capitals, bold, itallic, and underline impressed..
The owner deserves a pat on the back for that effort!
Now, a couple Toyota's..
ST162 Celica SX...
..just out of shot in the line-up above..
..what was my favourite car of the day..
The photos don't do this thing justice.. it was so nice. What a great thing to mozey about in..
So that's all.
I'm going to shut up before this turns into a completely incoherent mess. I got a bit side-tracked writing this all, and ehhhh... now its well past 3am. I'm tired. Wit and any actually useful insight into anything here just thrown out the window..
Ramble ramble something something...
