Treasure Island Vintage Bonanza

img_6473Old schools from all points descended from the Bay Bridge onto Treasure Island for a gathering of a different than the usual vintage show cars and trucks. An unofficial but mostly adhered to 1984 or so cutoff date allows for later lineage, as long as the model is progeny of the original. A 1988 Mitsubishi Starion? OK, as the turbo coupe made its debut in 1982. Everything from show quality seventies Toyota Celicas with modern engine and transmission transplants to daily driven Datsun 510 coupes showed up to show off. Owners and fans alike hung out, had some snacks, and swapped ideas and knowledge for the next project or upgrade plans. While there were a few race-only and half-finished builds trailered in for the event, most everyone else that rolled down off the bridge fired up their machines and drove right back off the island when the very well spent day was over.
