If you hadn’t heard already, the in-real-life version of the 2020 Japanese Classic Car Show has been postponed to next year, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the organizers are taking JCCS virtual, and taking the opportunity to welcome cars from all over the world. Now, they have announced a international Omiyage Package so overseas participants can receive all the goodies from the show as if they had flown to California with their cars.
The Omiyage (gift in Japanese) Package includes a commemorative shirt, decal sheet, and the all-important JCCS dash plaque, normally given only to cars that have been displayed at the show (which in a normal year would have had to physically been parked on the green in Long Beach). There’s a discounted price of $20 for overseas entries, which includes international shipping.
So far, there have been entries from Japan, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Canada, and the US of A. Does your car have what it takes to compete in a worldwide car show? The award categories so far include those from some heavy hitters, like Kousoku Yuen, Custom Car, and Honda Style magazines from Japan. There is also the tremendously coveted Japanese Nostalgic Car award that is almost certainly guaranteed to raise the value of your car by at least $1.
To enter, see the JCCS registration page. US registrants will automatically receive the Omiyage Package, while international participants can get it here. Registration closes September 15. Good luck, and see you on the interwebs!
