The long winter of our discontent is over, for today is the first day of spring. If you live in the northern half of the country, rejoice! The temperature is on the rise and it’s actually still bright out at 4:30. Time to get that nostalgic car of yours out of the garage after the long months of hibernation. Southerners, quit rubbing it in! Here’s 10 tips for taking your classic car out of winter storage.

This calls for celebration, so check out these pics of nostalgics and sakura, the Japanese cherry blossom trees that herald the coming season of rebirth. The only question is, which one would you take for your springtime drive – Mazda, Toyota, or Nissan?

    Oooooh, I love the pics.

    I say Nissan, Mazda, Toyota for these three. IIRC, doesn’t that Cedric/Gloria have an SBC in it too?

    Thanks for the tips. I’m guessing that my decision yesterday to get in my Chrysler after 4 months, hit the freeway and punch it was probably not the greatest idea, but oh well. Good info!

    There’s a bagged silver one out there with an SBC, could very well be that one!

    Yeah that is Ishibashi-san’s 330 with an SBC .. Will have a fantastic desktop image of that on RSM fairly soon. :)

    We couldn’t find any Mitsu representatives parked under cherry blossoms, but if you have any send them our way!
