Hi all

The Toyota Car Club of Australia (Victoria) is proud to announce the first annual Classic Japan Car Show in Melbourne.

To be held on November 20th 2011, it will be a gathering of enthusiasts of all classic Japanese marques.

Our venue will be Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield, Victoria and the show will be open to entrants from 8am to 9am, and then members of the public from 9am-1pm. Enter the venue via Yarra Bend Park Rd from Heidelberg Rd, and watch out for the speed humps.

Entry will be via a gold coin donation with proceeds going to Beyond Blue.

We are limited to 80 cars on display this year, so we are looking for a really good cross section of original and modified Japanese classics, 25 years and older.

There will be a sausage sizzle on the day and a coffee van for those looking for a caffeine hit.

We are hoping that this becomes an annual event and grows to be a real celebration of our favourite cars. Its a grass venue so it can be a relaxed family affair if you are so inclined.

If you have any questions, please ask away, other wise we look forward to seeing you on the day.

Thanks go to Parks Victoria for their support of the event.

Please represent car enthusiasts in the best manner possible by refraining from all anti-social "hoon" behaviour both in the venue and in the area around it.

I'll roll past and see if you have room for my DR30.

I reckon you could be swamped.

Thanks for all of your efforts with getting this kind of thing off the ground.

Regards,

Mike.

I am pretty sure we are going to be swamped too.

I just hope that doesn't p*ss people off and they understand that this year is a "suck it and see" year to see what kind of reaction we are going to get.

We struggled to get a venue without paying lots of $$ and the one we had pulled out at the last minute, so we are hoping this one works ok for 2011, before we go to something bigger and better in 2012.

Time will tell!

Hey Ad,

It must be feast or famine...... .there's a Japanese Car Day in Feb 2012 at Dandy Showgrounds, sponsored by Shannons. So, my theory is they heard about yours and put one together for Vic knowing how much needed it is! :wink: I just emailed you the flyer.

Thanks for sending it on

Even some of the wording suggests ours was on the radar...

"ground can hold hundreds of cars"

"long time between drinks for a Japanese Car show with major sponsorship"

Ah well.. about time regardless.. shame its only two weeks after Hanging Rock!

We will just have to make sure ours is a family friendly relaxed picnic style event that people want to keep coming back to.

Doesn't matter, there is no harm in having two japanese oriented shows a year!

Planning is coming along nicely for Classic Japan, hope everyone is out with the polish getting their cars ready.

It looks like we are going to have a massive turn out of cars which is great.

Please bear in mind that we only have space for 120 cars on show on the grass, so we really are looking for top quality cars for this event. More space for the extras in the carpark though!

One other thing to note is that once the cars are in on the grass at 9am, there is to be no movement of them until 1pm. That is a condition of our use of the ground. So if you want to be in, you are in for the full 4 hours.

In other news, we now have support from Shannons for the event, so thanks to them, and Chroma Canvas will be there taking photos on the day and are offering a special prize on the day.

If you have any questions about the event, please email me - adamlaws1974@bigpond.com or send me a PM

Just a few notes for everyone planning on coming:

Our venue is Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield and you can access the park via Yarra Bend Road, off Heidelberg Rd. Google Maps and TomTom both try to get you there via the Eastern Freeway depending on where you are coming from, but as there is no exit ramp this is no good, so keep an eye out for that.

Entrants will need to be in between 8am and 9am, no exceptions. There are no allocated slots so we will be picking the best 120 cars to go on the grounds as they roll up. Make sure your ride is nice and shiny! There is a big car park attached to the grounds as well, so any one who doesn’t make the cut will still get plenty of exposure to every one rolling up for the event.

Entry is by gold coin (or more!) donation to beyondblue, and the show is open to the public between 9am and 1pm. Please note if you are on show, you have made a commitment to be on show right through to 1pm, so if you are planning on leaving early, please park in the car park.

There will be a sausage sizzle on the day, or bring your own picnic, and a coffee van will also be on site. We will also have Chroma Canvas taking photos of everyone’s cars with their models, and Shannons Insurance will be on hand to discuss all things insurance.

If you have any questions, please contact Adam Laws via email (preferred) adamlaws1974@bigpond.com or 0413 001 666.

Hopefully see you there!

Great day and really well organized. Loved this event. Met up with heaps of guys I haven't seen in years and saw some really cool cars. Can't wait for next year.
The orange Datsun 510 was the best show car there. But the Cozmo was of course my favorite.

Today was bloody awesome. Adam and the TCCAV boys need a big pat on the back. Hopefully the start of something really good!

Would have been nicer if we didn't have to include that ugly plastic eyesore that Toyota provided though, lol.

Thanks for coming Heath.. and you know what, The FJ Cruiser is actually very cool. I am not usually a 4WD person, but it won me over after a drive. Its smooth, quiet, quick and has a thumping stereo. And it has personality unlike 99% of new cars! Thanks Toyota :)

Thanks to everyone who made the event what it was today! Awesome, awesome awesome!

Who would have thought we would be getting sunburnt today after yesterday's weather.

Big thanks to Toyota, Shannons and Chroma Canvas for supporting the event, and even bigger thanks to the club members who spent their time BBQ'ing, selling raffle tickets, directing traffic etc etc.

We couldn't have hoped for a better show for a first up effort, so we are stoked.

I tried to get around and take a photo of every car. I think I succeeded, but if I missed you many humble apologies.

Here are a few of my favourites


Cosmo - Awesome!
Image

Loved this Mazda SS - great shape and so clean!
Image

The orange Datsun 1600 was just amazing. So bright, so clean, and not a twin cam turbo engine in sight!
Image

Mmmm carbs
Image

Supercharged Mighty Boy! So glad these two came.. they made my day!
Image

I am with gmonkey.. this was a sweet first gen Civic
Image

This is cool as, makes me want to follow through on my early Hilux ideas....
Image

Ken from Queensland... yes Queensland... drove all the way for our show. How cool is that?
Image

I love a good wagon! And this is a GOOD wagon!
Image

I love this one too.. just cos its mine!
Image

Sooo many Isuzus to choose from, their support was awesome. I love the Wasp!
Image

These guys trailered this down from Ballarat. How cool is it?!
Image

Great to have some Prince's in attendance too
Image

Mmmmm Zed goodness
Image

More Honda awesomeness
Image

One of the wilder cars on show.. and he won the Chroma Canvas raffle!
Image

Honda Life, yes please. And the Suzuki guys thought they would have smallest engines on the day. No such luck!
Image

Love Justin's Crown
Image

Publica Ute
Image

Toyota Century. The fold down passenger seat was cool
Image

I could keep going and going but I won't. All the rest are here!
