pressrelease02-cut300Restored or original? Modified or stock? Tweaked or factory-fettled? Toyota? Mazda? Honda? Nissan? Subaru? Mitsubishi? Isuzu? Diversity makes our hobby great. At this year’s 12th annual Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS), to be held 9am-3pm on Saturday, September 24, 2016, along side the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA, we celebrate diversity within our slice of the old-car hobby, embracing all marques and all clean build styles.

Can you imagine a model more diverse than the Toyota Corolla? Coupe, hatch, sedan, wagon, front-drive, rear-drive, all-wheel-drive … We celebrate the legendary Corolla’s 50th Anniversary. The Corolla is respected across the globe by tens of millions of owners whose cars are exactly what they want them to be. Corolla’s rich competition history will be represented by a car built specially by Toyota Motorsport. Additionally, JCCS salutes Honda’s long-standing motorsport efforts, represented in our promotional materials by the MOTUL-sponsored Civic.

And speaking of Honda … For those who enjoy picture-perfect restorations, you won’t want to miss the unveiling of Honda N600 Serial #1 during the show. Honda commissioned N600/Z Coupe guru Tim Mings to restore the first Honda automobile on American shores, and everyone is invited to witness the re-debut.

We also celebrate the life of famed racer Yoshimi Katayama, who passed earlier this year. His hand in the Fuji Grand Touring battle of Mazda RX3 vs Nissan Skyline in 1972, the 1979 RX7 class win at Daytona, and his development on the LeMans-winning Mazda 787B, will long be remembered.

Also, we toast the famed Brock Racing Enterprises team. Half a century on from its formation, the BRE legend only continues to grow; from salad days in a Hino Contessa to twice winning the SCCA Trans-Am in a Datsun 510, the little team that could is celebrated by fans of road-race competition all over the world.

For the sixth year, JCCS also offers a Japanese Vintage Motorcycle Show on the grounds … and we hear that bike-section sponsor, MOTUL, has something special in store for those who sign up to show off their two-wheelers at JCCS …

Whether you’re new to the scene or stalwart Japanese-car fan from back in the day, we look forward to celebrating the Japanese car’s rich racing history with you at the 12th annual JCCS, at the Queen Mary on September 24!
