Which Of These Japanese Classics Would You Take Home?
Photography by Abhi Chatterjee
2015 marks the 10th year of the outstanding Japanese Classic Car Show, and photographer Abhi Chatterjee was on hand to capture many of the small details that make classic Japanese vehicles such a treat to look at—but a bear to own.
As their popularity increases in North America, it’s no longer a hopeless long shot to acquire a rare trim piece, interior fitting, or engine part—so long as the vehicle is more of a mainstream model, or the owner is willing to wait to find the correct item. Just keeping one of these classics on the road—a road many of them were never supposed to be on—is an achievement in itself.
With a bunch of Japanese classics in one place, JCCS has become the place to spot and oogle rare J-Tin, and with everything from ex-Le Mans racers to survivor pickup trucks, there’s little doubt any enthusiast would not enjoy what turns up.
