A trophy cabinet full of slammed Crowns with various motivation.

This event started with very humble beginnings, the idea and thought that most people have had, to start an event that caters for Japanese classics.  It’s very few and far between in NZ.  Our small country’s classic car scene has been dominated for the most part by the rodders of V8 and concourse of European (including British) types.  Japanese cars (as with a lot of western society, I imagine) tend to have been looked down upon and scoffed at by such crowds.  The reality is though that Japanese cars are more accessible to most, as in their heyday, they’re cheaper and more reliable than their more “prestigious” counterparts.

Enough of the blather though, this is an online blog, you didn’t come here to read my dribble, you came to check out the photographs.  So here you go.
