SPOCOM Show Adds Old School Category

As the nostalgic car movement gains speed, we are making in-roads into mainstream tuner shows. Case in point: the SpoCom Super Show that takes place every summer at Long Beach has added an Old School category for the first time ever.

It used to be that the only Old School categories were for the Big Three – Ford, Chevy, and Mopar. Now they’ve added a general category for Old School Japanese (1985 and older, but any body style that starts in 1985 is ok, like 1986 Cressida or AE86).

The wonderful people behind JCCS and TORC, who have done so much for our hobby, are making a big push to fill up the show with as many nostalgics as possible, and we want to help! They have a special discounted entry fee ($45 per vehicle includes 2 tickets, regularly $55. Regular admittance is $22.50 for each ticket) that is for old school rides ONLY. So if you’re interested in representing the classics, let us know. The cutoff is July 9.

    Cutoff date? Like, if I had a 1991 Dodge Stealth with Indy 500 Pace Car Decals on it, am I in or out?

    “Old School” needs a definition.

    Is it everything between two dates?

    It usually means anything done in a style previous to the current style, so last season’s style is old school. This meaning is usually an insult or bach handed compliment.

    It is also used to say that something is customized with period correct modifications for the time it was made. As in new cutting edge technology is not used.

    The term creats more confusion.

    Technically, the Dodge Stealth and Mitsubishi 3000GT are Captive Imports. With some minor differences, their the same model.

    I actually live in Long Beach and have a 77 skyline. What are the steps that I need to take and who can I contact to get entry? When is the date of the show?
