JCCA: Uncategorised Cool

You could probably have spent weeks chatting, buying, storytelling, looking and oogeling at JCCA (that is, if it went for weeks), but here is a selection of uncategorised cool from the event that I haven’t yet posted or sent to Motormavens but think is interesting.

This was the view that greeted me as I poked my head out of the subway station. I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Then, walking to the front gate I saw this Lamborghini Countach. I didn’t see it inside event, so I’m assumed the owners just cruised there in it. I’m regretting not taking a walk around the parking lot.

I’m a fan of old Celicas, and this one was particularly nice, with a more traditional flavor to it

The extensiveness of the event was pretty impressive

These handmade headers for a Datsun A-series certainly caught my eye

As did this attention-grabbing Z

This Datsun Fairlady would be quite valuable in Australia, I’d imagine

I really wanted these tiny Work Equips. At 10x6j, they would have looked great on my tiny KB10, but unfortunately had the wrong PCD. A bargain at only 30000yen!

I had to post this one – its a Holden Premier from Aus, badged as a Mazda with a rotary! This would be blasphemy at home, and I don’t imagine the fuel economy would be all that great, but they are rare as hens teeth! I gave the guy my email and have offered to help him with parts

This old helmet was just one of the interesting things (that I wanted to buy) that the vendors were selling

Although not particularly popular in the US or Aus, there was a few of these Izuzu GT’s

How could I leave out this Z, perfectly styled?

This rally car (can someone identify it for me?) had presence as it rolled past

As did this Celica

That’s all for my JCCA coverage – I hope you’ve enjoyed it! I’ve got some coverage of my trip to Tsukuba I’ll sitting on, and I’m sure I’ll have more car-related before too long.
