The JCCS (Japanese Classic Car Show) America's original all-marque old-school Japanese car show, is an event whose time has come. The concept of a Japanese car being considered a classic is no longer
an oxymoron. Come and celebrate your own fond memories of Japanese cars,
or perhaps create some new ones, as you stroll among the 400 + pre-1985
Japanese cars expected at the event, held October 12 at Hidden Valley park
Time has gone by so quicklycwas it really just four years ago, in 2005, when the thought of a gclassic
Japaneseh car show generated both curiosity and controversy from those
who did (and those who refused to) attend? It seemed as if there were many
insurmountable obstacles to overcome. Yet we knew that we were not alone in our enthusiasm for vintage Japanese cars: we have met many classic Japanese-car owners here in southern California, the land of eternal sunshine, whether itfs at our JCCS events, at other car events around Southern California, through our website, or even in junkyards, looking for parts to keep their pride and joy alive that much longer!
JCCS deeply appreciates the warm and overwhelming support from all the
owners, local car clubs, overseas friends, sponsors and visitors who have
supported us since the beginning, when we were just starting out. The success of this event has everything to do with you c and wefre profoundly grateful to you all! You have inspired us and made us proud to keep going.
Our growth has been so tremendous, that we have a new location for this yearfs event: Hidden Valley Park in Irvine, CA. All of our cars will be parked on a field of green, a beautiful, pastoral setting in which we can enjoy the show. This yearfs theme color, green, comes from both our own rapid growth and as a celebration of the showfs new home. That growth could only have come from people who have become friends with JCCS, and the Chinese character/Japanese kanji in our famous Hanafuda image (flower card) means gFriends.h To us, all of these things are intertwined and together in our hearts and minds.
In that spirit, all Japanese car marques, including (but not limited to)
Toyota, Nissan/Datsun, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Honda, Isuzu, Daihatsu,
Hino, and Prince are invited to participate. Please join us and be a part
of Japanese car history in the USA! The 4th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show will be held at the Hidden Valley Park, Irvine, California. This event, the first of its kind in America, is open to the public from 9am to 3pm. Admission: $5 for adults, kids under 12 free! Spectator parking is just
