My first time to this event, was excellent. Great turn out and some really nice rides, was good to see some familiar faces and meet some new people too  :)

Here's a few quick phone pics, non Z stuff that I liked.

Thanks to every one who showed up and made our show so amazing!

Plenty of photos being shared on the facebook page - www.facebook.com/classicjapanshow

Sorry to hear about the headgasket too - my old Crown wasn't thrilled with the heat of the day.. and I know another one didn't make it home either.

Hopefully it was still worth the effort!!

Who owns the white Z with Watanabe's? They look like 15" wheels is that correct? Love it.

Looks like some great cars, shame I couldn't be there for it.

That would be mine, Gav. You're right, they're 15x8.5 and 15x8.0. Thanks :)

It was a great day out with great weather. I look forward to next year!

Bought them through Otomoto which arranged to get them brand new from RS Watanabe. Because I got them with the optional gold centres, I had to wait almost 20 weeks for them from order :(

Wow. What a day! Thankyou to everyone who came along/displayed a vehicle/donated/lent a hand/said hello/made the event as awesome as it was! What I found to be most impressive was not just the numbers, but the variety! I'm no car expert, I like seeing cars at shows & thinking "WTF is that?" *walk over for closer look* "Oh, so THAT'S what they look like in the flesh.". There was a little something for everyone, no matter what your flavour is.

Anywho, I shall add my collection of photos, you can find them all here: https://picasaweb.go...feat=directlink

I had another play with MovieMaker & put together a little walk-around of the day. Four hours of car show condensed into just under eleven minutes, if you're game, sit back, relax & enjoy.

Just a quick bit of news: The Toyota Car Club of Australia is proud to announce that from our recent Classic Japan event, we have raised $4,000 that will be heading to the Fred Hollows Foundation. This money will go towards restoring the sight of 160 people. A massive thankyou must go out to all our sponsors, volunteers & all of you who came along, donated, had a great day & made all of this possible.

;D
