Car Show Classics: Japan Classic Day

Here’s my belated report of the May 2018 edition of the Japan Classic Day. The Honda Club brought an impressive collection of early Civics to the event and the number of classic and more recent Toyotas, all of them in a perfect condition, was overwhelming. Plenty of other gems too, so enjoy the tour.

1978 Honda Accord.

1993 Toyota Starlet.

1981 Mitsubishi Galant 2000 GLS Automatic.

1979 Toyota Celica 1600 ST Coupe.

1980 Datsun Laurel.

1978 Datsun 140Y GL.

1988 Toyota Starlet 1.3 XL.

1991 Honda Civic 1.6i VTEC.

1986 Toyota Land Cruiser Customwagon 4.0 D (60-series).

1986 Toyota Starlet with a 246 DIN-hp 2.0 liter engine, according to its registration. Say, that’s certainly not a factory Turbo S.

2003 Toyota Corolla T-Sport.

1995 Nissan Sunny, 1.6 liter engine. The weather was sunny too.

1986 Toyota MR2 1.6 Twin Cam 16.

1985 Daihatsu Charmant 1300 LD.

1985 Toyota Corolla 1.3 DX.

2008 Toyota Yaris T-Sport.

1980 Toyota Celica 2000 XT Liftback Automatic.

1974 Datsun 100A.

2004 Lexus IS200 SportCross.

So far another perfect classic car event; 2018 was a sublime show year, mainly thanks to a summer that lasted from early April to mid-October.

Coming up, Ol’ Benzes.
