The JCCA Classic Car Festival is one of the oldest and no doubt, one of the largest, vintage car show in Japan. Usually held on the last Sunday of January, it manages to gather hundreds of cars and thousands of oldschool enthusiasts, despite the freezing temperatures. Well, at least the cars are happy!
The JCCA has some simple rules in order to enter, and is good mix of ultra clean, bone stock, old ladies and race cars (or replicas). The event is also famous for its trade booth, where you can find, if you are very patient, rare parts or vintage accessories.
Odaiba has been hosting the event since the very first edition. Unfortunately, it might be the last time to have the iconic Fuji TV building on the background as the parking might be turned into a shopping center later on this year... (T_T)
Can't get enough of Teru-san's Datsun Sunny B110!
Everything is in the details! The Marchal yellow lights are as rare as desirable.
A classic car party wouldn't be complete without some tsurikawas!
One of the cleanest 2T-G around! Mandatory Mikuni carbs!
Straight from Truck Yaro! This movie series was aired between 1975 and 1979. It is said to be the origin of the Dekotora phenomenon!
The Holy Grail, right here. A lot of Skyline GT rock the GT-R emblem in Japan. You have to look close to make sure you have a real legend in front of you!
A12 engine with FCR carbs. You'd be surprise how loud this little thing can be!
Talking about Datsun Cherry, have you ever wondered where the angry tails lights often installed on Kenmeri or Butaketsu come from? Now you know! (^_^)
Famous Leyton House Datsun Sunny B310 Replica.
The inside the beast covered with Black Emperor stickers, one of the most famous bosozoku gang. (The Swastika is not a Nazi symbol here)
Interesting color on this Nissan Skyline Japan!
This Levin TE51 signed by Wizard rocks a set of stock steel wheels impossible to find nowadays.
The Skyline gang ψ(｀∇´)ψ
This is the very first twin cam engine produced in Japan! Who knows where it comes from? (Drop us an email with the name of the first car using a twin cam engine in Japan and we'll send you a free keychain!)
It is really hard to find large tires in 13 or 14 inch now. People are willing to pay a lot of money for those piece of wood. Sorry, piece of rubber... m(_ _)m
Hayashi Racing engine head cover for A series engines (*ﾟ▽ﾟ)
Hayashi-shachou told us they will soon start to produce the Yayoi wheel in 15 inch! Prepare your credit card!
Is there anything cuter than a Publica? Yes! 6 Publica!
The JCCA event is the paradise for the rare parts diggers! You have a lot of crap of course, but really cool stuff too!
Some more tsurikawa love!
While the main event is more focused on classic, clean cars (with certain rules to enter), the sub-meet next to it is a place for wilder species.
Crystal blue tsurikawa: very rare to spot one into the wild!
Unfortunately, we missed the van meet. No matter if you like them or not, you have to admire the efforts put into those creations!
Not a lot of bikes this year... Probably because of the heavy police presence. (T_T)
Bye bye Odaiba! It was fun! Hopefully, next year venue will allow more cars to join the party!
