S2KI Mega Meet - Sunday August 12th @10am - S2KI Honda S Forums
When I posted about the JCCA New Year Meeting last week, my If it's related to vintage Japanese cars, you can probably find it here. Turbo Fast is an American flash-animated web television series based on the computer-animated film Turbo. . Hayaku (voiced by Lauren Tom) - A Japanese cricket who pretends to be in love with Turbo in order to beat him in a race in Tokyo. . Turbo and Whiplash meet a strange tick who may be out to harm Turbo. The Mid Atlantic MEGA MEET is a non-profit organization dedicated to on top of the AiNET building of the 2 main parking lots during the Season Opener.
It was a great opportunity to reconnect with some of the fellow BMW owners, and to get a feel of things to come next morning.
The Tatsumi detour ended at midnight sharp with cops sending everybody home, ultimately giving me the opportunity to get plenty of sleep because main event was not going to wait. So without further ado, it is morning January 3rd and I am in my car heading the the only destination that matters - Daikoku PA The strategy to arrive early almost back fired as I got stuck at the entrance, so the only logical conclusion was that the meet was already full on and I wasn't there on time.
Immediately after arriving it was hard not to notice the sheer randomness contributing to diversity of car sub-cultures being present at the event. Indeed, what makes Japanese car culture so unique it is the diversity and how well do people of different backgrounds and tastes interact with one other. It was soon evident however, that stuff was about to get real.
The traffic at the entrance backed up all the way to the junction on top, as all but few parking spots were taken.

Quickly enough drivers began to improvise and created extra space in best possible Japanese manner, but when JDM Five-O arrived we all thought that we were done for the day Not on this occasion, as they calmly rolled by asking all be safe and careful.
In famous words of Ice Cube "Today was a good day"! As we appreciated the courtesy of local law enforcement, more cars rolled in, including the Audi R8 wide body by Garage Ill Japan, which we saw at StanceNation. There was something for purists as well, as this track spec Porsche was about to hit the streets. Then there was this. Jacked Audi A5 with a little gold theme going on. I can't help but to admire the brave owners who look after their classic M cars and install incredibly tasteful mods in the process.
This is why I go to these meets. The ultimate classic of JDM world was there in the flesh: Manufactured in by the hands brave Toyota engineers who were in charge of building and designing the project and Yamaha contributing the brilliant cc straight-six engine and interior panels made out of same type of wood as they use in grand piano manufacturing. Perhaps the meet was a bit unique in a sense that there were so many cars from the American steed. This Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 got my inner yank all excited.
New Year Mega Meet at Daikoku PA | MotorFlair
This is what I simply call "perfection" And how can you not love the C10 truck nonchalantly rolling past all the Ferrari's and Lamborghini's It is thus was becoming self evident that today was some sort of low rider meet.
With most low riders handled by Mooneyes in Yokohama these guys were coming in from all parts of Japan. Slamming, bouncing, they represented it all, and if anything, they definitely added a lot of spice to the annual Daikoku meet.
I think it is safe to say that with more exposure through social media and automotive web sites low rider scene is rapidly gaining popularity. This is as rare as it gets, and seeing one in Japan completely blows my mind. Speaking of unique, how about an appearance by AC Cobra If you are into 80's yakuza style tuned Mercedes Benz, this event is genuinely for you.
Well, I am not, so let's move on, and look at some Ferrari's, starting with this Dino.
It was great to see the Idling Power demo car from - the F It has changed owners since we last saw it inbut nothing in the car was altered, which is a good thing.
Speaking of F's, this is 16M, also known as Scuderia Spider - extremely rare and drop dead gorgeous! But few cars compare to F50 in both aesthetics and rarity.

Seeing one at such event is truly a privilege. Ferrari models are flying off the shelves here in Japan, so rare they are definitely not, however aesthetically the car is a true masterpiece of Italian ingenuity and vision. And what would a rare set of wheels be without some equally awesome tires? These old Bridgestone slicks were especially badass.
Do I own a car these overfenders fit? On the other hand, I think I could easily find a way to put these Nissan L-series Webers to good use… Marchal lamps are long time favorites among the kyusha crowd.
There were plenty of them for sale — both new and used. Some sellers, like Revive Jalopy brought out piles of restoration parts. Here we see a set of S30 tail lamps with an S20 cam cover peeking out from the corner.
Treasure Hunt: The Jcca Swap Meet
The especially cool thing is that most of the sellers had a huge variety of stuff in one booth. And speaking of models, the selection of vintage kits was just as impressive as the aforementioned wheels.
Many of these have been out of production for decades, so scale builders and collectors come out to the New Year meeting in big numbers. In most cases, the awesome box art on these kits is worth the price alone.
This table was filled almost exclusively with S30Zs of various scales and types.
