We can’t afford cable so we missed it the first time, but luckily some friends and readers sent us a DVD of Meguiar’s Car Crazy TV‘s recent episode about Japanese collector cars. In this episode, Barry Meguiar goes on the scene to the Japanese Classic Car Show, Motoring J Style, and Toyotafest. With only 30 minutes to cover all three shows, the profiles of cars are very limited, but we’re still jazzed to see some vintage Japanese iron get their propers on the telly. In fact, what’s that behind Mr. Meguiar’s right shoulder? In this opening scene, he’s saying, “One of the great phenomena taking place in the car hobby today is the evolution of Japanese cars becoming collectors cars.” We could not agree more. Hats off to Mr. Meguiar and Car Crazy TV, for being one of the first TV shows to recognize this movement.
CORRECTION: The next airing will be this Sunday, December 9, at 8:30am Eastern Time, 5:30am Pacific Time on SpeedTV (thanks elmonoloco). Check this site for your local times. Gentlemen (and ladies), start your Tivos! And if that doesn’t satisfy your need for car show footage, there’s always the JCCS DVD.
