After a fresh wash, we cruised it up to San Leandro for Historic Japanese Car Gathering‘s Shokuji J-Tin event! This year they had folks from Japanese Nostalgic Car and called back an honored guest, “Mary” from the the Ken & Mary Skyline commercials!
It looked like a great time with food / ice cream trucks as well as people and their cars from all over the place.
Though it seemed to be dominated by Datsuns, there were plenty of Toyotas making a scene.
As we rolled up a 350z owner asked if i could park next to him so he could snap some old / new photos – haha hopefully i can get a shot of that from him.
Unfortunately, we arrived ~3pm and got really at the tail end of the event, but we were able to spot a few cars and snap some pics on that beautiful bay area day. Enjoy!
White on gold is always a pleaser.
Some RHDs – yes, just check out that Skyline on Watanabe’s… that’s delux.
Rising sun corners on these two Datsun trucks.
Bunch of 510’s getting ready for a ride.
A spectacular looking Toyota Corolla Levin – man that thing was a compact piece of muscle.
This guy just threw his well done 510 right over the speed bump without a care. Sorry, that type of showmanship isn’t for me.
Really nice to see this brown Levin bare-boned and empty. You just get the ideas of restoring running through your head.
A bit more modern classic. Very well kept.
Ah, there he is – just taking in the sun.
