The Los Angeles Times recently published an article about the rising costs of classic Japanese cars. And while it’s likely not breaking news to JNC readers, it provides an interesting outsider’s perspective to something you know intimately. Plus, it profiles everyone’s favorite kyuusha power couple, Koji and Terry Yamaguchi, founders of the Japanese Classic Car Show.
It’s somewhat amusing to see a writer try to explain why a Nissan Skyline is cool to an audience that’s probably never heard of it before. But even the most hardened JNCer must feel a sense of validation when Japanese nostalgic cars are recognized as genuine collector’s items by a mainstream media outlet. The only problem is, now their prices will shoot even higher.
