The 2022 Japanese Classic Car Show has opened its doors for registration. Now in its 17th year, the show continues to evolve. The biggest change this year is the award categories. There will now be two Best in Show awards, one for restomods, and one for stock. This is a welcome and long-overdue change that will keep judges from having to decide between craftsmanship and originality while recognizing both important sides of the Japanese classic car hobby.
The 2022 JCCS will also welcome as a guest race car designer and builder Peter Brock, of Datsun BRE fame. Brock’s last appearance at JCCS was 2019, so if you missed him then here’s another chance to meet the legend.
In addition, the sub-event Japanese Classic Motorcycle Show also makes its 11th return, and plenty of other festivities are planned. Lastly, the organizers are offering a “Kyusha Otaku” early bird special that will include a sticker sheet (a $10 value) if you register before July 31. If you would like to enter your car or motorcycle, please register at the JCCS website.
The JCCS will be held at Marina Green Park in Long Beach, Calif. on Saturday, September 10, 2022. Tickets for regular admission will go on sale August 1.
