Norwegian Nostalgics at Japan Treff 2010


It’s time once again for the Japan Treff from Norway, a classic Japanese gathering that does not boast a single tsurikawa or boso pipe in the field.


Instead, we get rows and rows of bone-stock beauts, still driving exactly the way the God (or at least the factory) intended.


Marque mixing is perfectly alright in Norway! Can’t we all just get along?


Even Hondas and Datsuns can be friends!


But it’s always the cars that were never sold in the US that make us seethe with envy. Cars like the MS51 Crown Hardtop.


Or the 230 Nissan Cedric Hardtop. It was either flee to Norway or become Seibu Keisatsu chase fodder.


And C130 Nssan Laurels too (called the Datsun 200L, whereas the Cedric was called the 200C to 260C).


And because Norwegians don’t drive Dodge Ram 2500s, this is how you tow your Bluebird to the show — via Volvo limo!

    Very nice array of colors, too. You just don’t see these with the tuner crowd, or even on modern cars. How I long for a shit brown wagon.
