Because we need Cressida station wagons with genuine simulated wood grain paneling and Datsuns with honeycomb hubcabs now more than ever before comes this photo roundup of the 2009 Japanese Classic Car Show. Over 400 cars from as far off locales as Pennsylvania lined up early on Saturday to descend into the Hidden Valley in Irvine, California. Everything from trailered in over the top drag race specials to motored in under their own power low mileage survivors made it down onto the breezy lawn. Throngs of fans that think cars should be at the least interesting and at the most a wicked good time walked in to enjoy the show. The head spinning number of Japanese classics was almost overwhelming, but the variety of styles proved that no matter what sort of econobox or race car turns your crankshaft – finding, driving, fixing, and showing them off can be entertaining for all.
