    Seattle Japanese Classic Car Meet 2011 part II (planning)

    We had a pretty good turn out for the first attempt.

    I would really like to see this grow and have some ideas for the future if the interest is there. For example an Old School Japanese Car show.

    So if the interest is there for more meets and or a show, post up your thoughts and suggestions.

    How often would you like to have meets? Weekends? Weeknights?
    Do you want meets or would you rather have events, like cruises, etc...?

    ohcanada_00 and I have been thinking about putting together a show. Would you all be interested in something like this?

    It would be cool to get to meet you guys and meet up like once a month. My car has some rust issues which I want to try and work out this summer and especially that I am about to buy rust free pieces from multiple donor cars my car wont look very presentable for a show. Also I hope to get my car running right soon so it stops dying on me randomly. Also a cruise would be awesome, dont matter if its just on alki boulevard or somewhere up in mountains.

    Monthly would be good, people might get burnt out if we do it too often.

    93cc, I sent you a PM, Not sure if the system is working properly or if you got it, but I've re pasted the contents of that message here as it basically had my suggestions for Pt II

    The two new major proposals I have are moving the meet South a little bit so we establish a more central location, and having a slightly later kickoff time like 11am. That will give people who have to travel further distance a better chance of making the meet.

    The location I propose is the newly opened Uwajimaya Japanese marketplace in Bellevue. I have not been to this new location yet, but I plan to scout it out this weekend. Previously I had been to the one in Redmond. I think this is the same store, they just moved to a larger lot.

    http://maps.google.com/maps?client=fire ... 18&iwloc=A

    The smaller Redmond location featured a tiny food court, deli food, drinks, etc... So I can only imagine that the new larger location will have even better facilities to accommodate a gathering like this. And who knows... the ownership might even encourage a gathering of old JNC's on their property or better yet might love the idea of an annual show.

    here is the official store website:
    http://www.uwajimaya.com/index.html

    I think having this occur at regular intervals would be great. I'd even be up for a once a week JNC 'hangout' meet, very informal, no pressure. Basically a cafe meet. With perhaps a larger more official meet once a month?

    Getting this to grow in to an actual classic Japanese car show for the PNW would be fantastic. Currently the big one is held in SoCal every year, but I think we have enough old school JDM love right here in the PNW to make a classic show a reality.

    I'm very excited that you guys are thinking of going in this direction. Let me know if I can help out.

    I did get it, thanks... I like the ideas.

    Let me know what you find out at Uwajimaya

    I had a few ideas for other places too...
    under I-5 at 65, there is a park and ride there.
    The Edmonds Dicks Drive In (when it opens)
    Mill Creek Burger Master

    I think if we want to do a weekly meet for dinner somewhere that is should be a local small business type of deal.

    Mike, the old school reunion looks like a great event and I'd be interested in attending. However I would still really like to see a strictly nostalgic Japanese car show here in the PacNW, featuring a Showa-era (1989) cutoff date.

    Stay focused people! :mrgreen:

    man, i'm sorry i missed the first one but my stupid suspension was messed up but good and i was hesitant to drive it. anyways, i'm fixing it this weekend so i really wanna go to the next one ESPECIALLY if it's at the new bellevue uwajis! i live just up the street. they have a bunch of extra parking around there BUT just know the spots seem kinda tight. that said, unless we have a crazy amount of turn out there should be plenty of parking. they have a small deli there but we can get snacks and whatever and do some hard parking. there's a bagel joint and a starbucks in the same parking lot too.

    Yes I made the cut-off!!! :mrgreen:

    When I saw wajis for a meet location the first thing I thought about was space. Usually there's never parking on sundays but that's at the seattle one. The bellevue one is a new location and a bit bigger though. I haven't been to their new location yet. I can also scout it if you guys like because my GF lives like walking distances from it.

    I like the mini meets idea. maybe once a week or every two weeks just to meet and greet and plan bigger meets and/or cruises.

    A lot of cities now a days have town centers. They usually have great parking areas, restaurants, and shops.

    I'll try to throw some more ideas later.
