Every year we full-heartedly look forward to certain annual events. No question about it, the Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS) is one of those all-time favorites. This year was particularly special as it marked its 10th year anniversary and returned to the Queen Mary Park in Long Beach, California.

The moment you passed the Queen Mary parking ticket machine this year you knew it was not going to be an average Southern California car show. The parking lot alone had an impressive array of Datsuns and 86s welcoming visitors into the Japanese Classic Car Show. With so much eye candy in the parking lot, you can imagine the pure unadulterated awesomeness inside.

Wheel porn brought in by Honda guys greeted you at JCCS entry. Whether it was SSR EX-C Meshes or Hiro V1Rs, it was a good 30min till we moved on from the old-school Honda section.

Many cars retrofitted with more potent and more technologically advanced motors could be seen after weaving through the show aisles. With no rust in sight, one can only imagine how many man-hours it took to get these Japanese Classic Car Show gems to such immaculate condition.

There were so many amazing cars, but one of the game changers had to be Patrick Soliman's Bosozuko style 1973 Nissan Skyline. What makes his San Diego Kenmeri so special is its widebody kit, the super rare SSR Techno Phantoms, and last but not least a cleanly swapped RB26DET engine. Another favorite was the teal Hakosuka, powered by a rather exceptional SR20DET motor.

10 years in the making and JCCS gets better and better. Give credit where credit is due, these enthusiasts not only have to modify their car they have to restore it. You can bet you'll find us at the Japanese Classic Car Show ever year.
