The Nisei Showoff was back for another year because the spot where the show has been held was not redeveloped as originally scheduled. Hooray for the GFC? Anyway, old school flavor was out in full effect and seems to be getting stronger with each passing year.
Another killer Z. The blacked out chrome is super sinister, and the rest is aaaalmost there. Just let those beautiful Wats fill out those ZG-style flares with some spacers and it’ll be the total package.
Not quite nostalgic, but a strong contender for the next wave of Japanese classics is the Honda EF Civic. Hippari tires stretched on Enkei 92 meshies with shakotan stance and oni-kyan “demon camber,” the Japanese tuning trifecta.
And we’ve seen many RT52 Toyota Coronas in recent weeks, but this is one bad barikan. Compared to the first Z, this is a more nostalgic white, and just the addition of some classic barrels makes this shovelnose look like one tough customer.
And here’s something you don’t see every day, a Honda CT70, a minibike like the Monkey or Ape but with a unique T-bone frame that was introduced in Japan as the Honda Dax in August 1969. Perhaps the perfect JNC pit cruiser!
