The 8th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show
will be held 9am-3pm on Saturday, September 15, 2012,
along side the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA.

To the Japanese Classic Car fan, the number 8 is a significant one. In Japan, there is a proverb: "Stumble and fall seven times, and stand up eight times." It testifies to strength and determination. So it was with Japanese cars in the USA in their infancy: it took a decade or more for the idea to catch on. The hard work of winning hearts and minds in the 1970s was over, and by the time the '80s rolled around, the Japanese car had matured and adapted to American driving conditions; this is when Japanese cars became a part of our countryfs automotive landscape. And of course, the number 8, when tilted on its side, is the symbol for "infinity"--the realm of limitless possibilities. This describes the Japanese car in America in the 1980s: unlimited potential.

Toyota launched the Celica, and later the Supra, in the '70s,ccqcq but it was the twin-cam model that was so successful. Datsun's Z models never sold better than when they changed to the ZX designation. Honda's ever-evolving Civic spawned the sporting CRX model, and the Accord was on its way to becoming America's best-selling car. Subaru's Leone line saw the introduction of turbocharged all-wheel-drive models to the lineup, fifteen years before the WRX touched American shores. Storied Japanese marques like Isuzu and Mitsubishi established their own sales channels in the USA. The prejudice was gone by the 1980s: Japanese cars were readilyaccepted on American roads, and both enthusiasts and the general car buyer alike clasped them to their collective breast. Many were even built in USA, providing jobs for millions of Americans: Accords in Ohio, Legacys in Indiana, Corollas in California, Datsun pickups in Tennessee. Millions remember, love, and have strong memories of these vehicles. Whether it was the fanciest Cressida, the least-expensive Sentra, the sportiest Starion, or the slowest Diesel-powered I-Mark, they were loved by someone.....
