Old School Toyota Club of Bridgeport, CT Car Show



Highlights from the show:



















The entire album (all 198 pictures) can be seen here. High res versions available in .zip files are uploading and will be posted soon.

And guess who I met? The great Ben Hsu, publisher of Japanese Nostalgic Car magazine and website. Lemme tell you something about this man. He's a really cool dude. He was there looking at vehicles and trying to see which ones he can get a chance to do a write up on. I was so starstruck I forgot to ask if he could take a picture with me. He did give me a JNC sticker, though which will be going on the Corolla when it's done.

my 1st car was the same as the corolla in the 1st pic on the right. 2 speed auto 1166cc engine. downhill with a tailwind it was good for 110km/h (70mpg) but was revving at 5k so needed rest breaks...

LOL at the Scarface car, only in Bridgeport.

I want to know where half of these guys are finding these cars. I looked for ages for early yotas and Datsun 510's, and in the event that I found one that WASN'T in California, it was laying in pieces, rusty, and some schmoe was asking at least $2500 for the pile of parts.

I didn't know you're from this area. I've seen most of the cars that are from around here over the past few years.

Very nice, thanks for sharing your old school enthusiasm. Damn, it reminds me...I really really need a Datsun 2000 real soon.

In 1971 I ever so briefly "almost" owned a brand new Datsun 240Z, white with red interior...



...I ordered it and when it arrived at the dealer after the obligatory 4 month wait and before ever driving it, I sold my place in line/rights to it for $100 and bought my beloved '67 E-type Roadster instead....that was not very JDM of me but I'm making up for it now.
