Today November 3rd, is a national holiday here in Japan, Bunka No Hi or Culture Day, and if there was one thing I hadn’t planned this morning, it was to find a quite big classic car show on the parking lot where I rent a spot for my car...

As I was about to go get some groceries, I saw a couple of nice cars during the 200 meters that separate my home from the place where I park my car. The parking lot is owned by the local temple and once I got closer, I quickly noticed something was... unusual. CLASSIC CAR SHOW RIGHT NEXT TO HOME!!!

So I did what any car guy would have done: I immediatly forgot what I was supposed to do, ran back home to grab my camera and went to look at all the stuff that the my ô so awesome local temple had organized!

This time, I also did a little GoPro walk-around video (“little” but still 28 minutes long...) that I’ll post at the end of the article. I talk while filming and I usually suck at this. So if my voice and commentaries are annoying, if I repeat the word “like” way too often and for no reason, if the gopro without a steadycam is unwatchable to you...etc etc, please let me know and I won’t do it again, promise!

Anyway, photodump in 3....2...1...

I hope you enjoyed the n-th car show coverage I’ve done, as promised, here is a little gopro tour of the whole thing where you can hear me talking, thinking the Giulia shared its plateform with the 124, mistaking a Toyota Starlet for a Mazda 323 (in my defense, this gen, they really did look alike lol) or say that the 911 SC was launched in 1978 instead of 1976!

Enjoy!
