Last week the Los Angeles Times ran a story on the recent Japanese Classic Car Show and the growing interest in classic J-rides.

Think domestic manufacturers will take notice? They’ve enjoyed a healthy halo effect from the booming popularity of muscle cars in the past few years. Perhaps now it’s the J-cars’ turn.
