Japanese classics have always been a bit of an underdog in the car scene—in fact some would argue an oxymoron—but without a doubt, that cannot be claimed any longer.

Anyway, it’s unstoppable now, so time to stock up on rotaries and Celicas while you can!! LA Times recently published this article, which further boosts the classic Japanese car image that has really exploded recently in the States.
