Nostalgic 2 Days 2017

If there's one thing we noticed in Japan during out latest trip, it's that old-school cars are on the rise once again. Ken Amemiya, son of Isami Amemiya, says, "Today, most new cars are automatic. Those cars don't have a good motor or exhaust sound. That's why we've never stopped building rotary motors."

In California we have the Japanese Classic Car Show, and back in Japan they have Nostalgic 2 Days, which is the largest old-car trade show organized by classic car magazines Nostalgic Hero, Hachimaru Hero, and NostalgicSPEED. As the name suggests, it's a two-day event, held at Pacifico Yokohama convention center. Some of our favorite cars in attendance were those powered by OS Giken's infamous TC24-B1 engine. Another favorite had to be Tsumori Engineering's 240Z, which has one of the cleanest engine bays you'll ever see in your life. The two-day affair brought in over 20,000 visitors that, if they chose to, could actually make an offer on a new/old car since the majority of them were for sale. Check out the price tag on that USDM Nissan 240SX!
