What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

This last weekend was the World Classic Car Festival in Tokoname City, put on by my good friends at Classic Car Nagoya. I have a job in Okinawa coming up next week, so this was an excellent opportunity for me to fly to Nagoya a bit early, check out the car show and hang out with friends and family here. In the words of an absolute legend, “I love it when a plan comes together.”

Without further ado, time to let the pics do the talking! (And since I’m an Isuzu addict, they’ll lead the charge.)

This is just a fraction of the cars that were there. There were over 200 cars in the show and the parking lot was another show in and of itself. It was a good day indeed!
