Japanese car displays from the Post War Miracle Years

Auto displays are like a magical time travel device. Not only do you get to see cars of the era, but also its prevailing fashion, colors and architecture. Like the old Tokyo street scenes we showed you a few months ago, here are some JNCs in their natural environment.

    I grew up in Yokohama in the sixties & remember my parents taking me to the Tokyo Auto Show in our mid sixties Nissan Cedric. My mom had a Toyopet. i was fascinated more by design back then as the driving age was a very distant 18. Wrenching came suddenly when I moved to the US when I was enrolled in Driver’s Ed at 15! My first “Japan Export Model” was a mid 70’s Chevy LUV manufactured by Isuzu (early model with the quad headlights). Anyway, my Okaasan has passed away but your pictures brought many fond memories. Thank you very much…

    I don’ t know if anyone can solve a mystery I have had to this day. On the school bus ride, i saw on a number of occasions, unfinished body shells for what I can best recall as Ford Panteras loaded on trucks. Did one of the manufacturers do this contract work?

Still has the same yellow taxi color from the movie with some advertisement painting on it from an amusement facility. It still runs and looks great.. Ask for pics and I will send them. Its amazing to have such a machine to have
