Celebrating its ninth annual event, the Japanese Classic Car Show recognizes old-school cars of both restoration quality as well as projects. This year was once again overlooking the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. Among many of the rare cars and motorcycles in attendance were a few notable standouts, including Lee Woolfolk's '72 Datsun 510 who took home the best of JCCS 2013 and Second Place going to the Ryan Deguzman's Yakuza-inspired '69 Toyota Crown. How dedicated are the owners of these old-school cars? Just ask Ken Valentine who drove his '76 280Z all the way from Saskatoon, Canada, to attend JCCS.

JCCS's ever expanding event continues to impress spectators and vendors alike. This year the event surprised many with the welcome of American Honda, one of their newest automotive manufacturers. Honda, with its rich automotive history, began as a bike company that eventually transitioned into manufacturing cars in the early '60s. Honda pulled out all the stops by bringing the historical Comptech Integra Type-R DC2 driven by Pierre Kleinubing, IMSA-campaigned SE91 Acura, '84 Mugen CRX prototype, and even the Super Street magazine Hot Wheels EK Civic that graced the cover back in early 2000. Honda joins a handful of other automotive manufacturers already supporting the event, including Toyota, Mazda, and Mazdaspeed.

With all the talk about vendors, we mustn't forget the main highlight of the event—hundreds of old-school cars stamping their presence. The quality of the cars was once again spectacular. The old-school car scene has been growing in popularity over the past few years, thanks in part to events like JCCS.
