Japanese Classic Car Show 2016 – Part 1
The quantity of old school Hondas, and beautiful weather made for a most excellent JCCS 2016.
There were vendors galore at the show, selling all kinds of car parts and goodies.
Some vendors even brought their own vintage Hondas.
This N360 was a special treat to see. Specially imported, and right hand drive.
Honda of America did not leave us wanting, with a huge tent full of swag. And a nice collection of future classics.
And from the private American Honda Museum, was this showroom-fresh Civic Wagon.
They also were showing off the Bisimoto Insight which ran 9.29 at 152mph.
And the original NSX to sit side by side with the new NSX.
This was also as a very, very special treat. Tim Mings, in collaboration with Honda, brought out the very first Honda car built for the US. Serial One, as the project is called, has been documented in a great series put on YouTube by Honda. It is highly-recommended viewing if you haven’t already.
Here’s a bit better picture of the Serial One. Needless to say, the car was 100% mint, and probably in better than factory condition.
This beautiful blue Z came with a matching trailer.
$1440 MSRP on the window sticker. If only we could find one this nice for that price now…
These beautiful stock 600s were a real treat in their variety of bright colors.
For something a little different, this highly-modified N600 was packing a 180hp motorcycle engine driving the rear wheels.
And infamous around the interents is this VFR-800 powered N600, also driving the rear wheels. Both cars were built with amazing attention to detail.
There’s so many more Hondas to see. Check back later for part 2, where we will post our pics of the classic Hondas of the water-cooled vintage. Civics, CRXs, and Accords galore.
