There they stand. Cars once considered toys, now on display as if national treasures. It’s the 8th annual show by the Japanese Classic Car Show Association, and it’s become the largest old-school Japanese car event in America. Exotics like the Toyota 2000GT are there, alongside one-time everyday transportation like the Toyota Corona, Datsun 510. Microcars like the Honda 600 and Subaru 360—the first Soobie to reach these shores. LA Car was there and captured these pictures at the exhibition surrounding the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. – Roy Nakano
