Historic Japanese Car Gathering – 4/21/13

Daily-Datsun-HJCG-Shokuji-J-Tin-130420 (1)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.

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.
