Our friends at Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS) put on Nissan Jam and '16 marked their 4th annual event. With a new location at La Palma Park in Anaheim, California, some 400 display cars filled the park lawn with a good mix of old-school and new-school rides, from your everyday 240SXs to rare Skylines. We've highlighted five of the most interesting cars here.

1. Michael Castillo's '71 Nissan Skyline 2000GT

Michael Castillo has been building his four-door Skyline for several years. It was even featured in the Modified magazine in '11. We finally got a chance to see some of the new updates on his Hakosuka, which included an RB26DETT swap running on a Mircotech standalone ECU. We also noticed new Works flares as well as rebuilt 15x9.5" front, 15x11" rear Panasport wheels.

2. Raul Toledo's '72 Datsun 510

While it's still a work in progress, we were diggin' Raul Toledo's 510. On all corners were SSR Long Champ wheels, while under the hood he swapped in an SR20DET. Can't wait to see this bad boy complete!

3. Johnny Torres' '97 Nissan 240SX

What looks like an inconspicuous S14 is actually a beast you don't want to mess with. Johnny Torres revealed his powerful secret under the hood-RB26DETT with TOMEI cams, RC Turbo throttle body and intake manifold, plus a big Precision turbo.

4. Victor Orosco's '89 Nissan 240SX

From afar, it looks like this S13 could be something you'd find straight outta Japan. Victor Orosco pays tribute to Kei Miura of TRA Kyoto with an original 6666 Customs widebody kit on his clean 240.

5. Luis Chavez's '94 Nissan Pickup Truck

One of the wilder builds at Nissan Jam belonged to Luis Chavez and his badass D21 Pickup. It's nicknamed "LA SR20," and under the hood is an SR20DET swap done by TEPA Swaps. The truck also features a custom 'cage, Bride interior, carbon-fiber details, fuel cell, and nitrous.
