Words and pictures by Roy Nakano When Japanese cars first reached our shores in the 1950s and 1960s, , few could have predicted they would one day reach collector status. But there they were, on display at the 7th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California—with fans lining up to enter as if they came to see the national treasures at the museum. Of course, the exotics were there, like the Toyota 2000GT. But so were the everyday cars of yesteryear—the 510 Datsuns, Toyota Coronas, Honda 600s, etc. LA Car was there to capture the moment.
