The Japanese Classic Car Show has always had great memorabilia, from dash plaques to T-shirts to stickers. This year the JCCS crew have come up with something truly special, their first “event car”. It’s a 1982 Toyota Supra in TRD USA racing tricolor, and it’s a beaut.
The 1:64-scale diecast car was made in conjunction with Auto World and our pals at The Lamley Group. Auto World has been branching out in to Japanese classics recently, with releases like the A80 Supra, Mitsubishi Starion, and Mitsubishi 3000GT. This is Auto World’s first casting of the A60 Supra, and JCCS is an excellent venue to introduce it.
In addition, there will be a “chase” car painted in red. one They will be much rarer than the white version, and will be randomly thrown in when you buy one. According to JCCS organizer Terry Yamaguchi, the cars sold at JCCS will have unique packaging that you won’t find in retail stores as well.
The details are great, down to the black trunklid and rear panel. It even includes a “JCCS 23” California license plate, though we probably would’ve opted for the vintage blue and yellow one. Still, it’s an exciting development for JCCS and we hope to see more from future shows. The 2023 Japanese Classic Car Show takes place October 7 and Marina Green Park in Long Beach, California.
