As we headed down to the monthly South Bay meet in Torrance last Friday, we ran into the hakosuka and kenmeri Skylines from Right Hand Drive Japan. Matched in white paint and gunmetal Wats, they were a sight to behold in LA traffic.
Anyway, Here are three vintage Dattos dripping with character, although our friend with the 510 Wagon didn’t position his car in proper Japanese parking style. Back in, folks!
This month’s meet was one of the best we’ve attended. There were a lot of new faces, like this yellow StarQuest. To be specific, it’s an Americanized Chrysler Conquest TSi, not a Mitsubishi Starion.
We were pleasantly surprised to see this SB1 Honda Civic, which we don’t recall witnessing at any local events before. Vintage Hondas are vastly under-appreciated so we’re always glad to see a new one.
Hey, familiar faces lined the lot as well. The R-Power crew are regulars, always rolling deep with a colorful contingent of Mazda RX-2s, R100s and non-Mazdas that have been given rotary heart transplants.
This row looked ready to do battle with zombies or something. The primered Mazda RX-3 could have easily qualified for our Pure Evil squad, while the A60 Toyota Celica Coupe and TE38 Corolla Wagon exude battle-hardened toughness.
Massive Kyuusha Kulture on a duo of MX32 Cressidas. First of all, two-tone. YES. Secondly, check out the depth of those Centerlines and the takeyari exhaust pipes on his partner in crime.
Datsun 510 rockin’ the koreisha mark.
Let us just reiterate the fact that this is a stellar meet. J-tin fans come in all sizes, backgrounds, and ages. Everyone is friendly and civilized, and showboating is kept to a minimum. A big thanks once again to Jorge, Priscilla, Boris and Moises for organizing this meet month after month. The next one is scheduled for February 5. Don’t miss it!
