Ah… classic car racing. They’re the place to see some of the cleanest, pristine engines in the land, and are both blown away and slightly annoyed in doing so.
Both events happened at the Pacifico Yokohama Expo Center at the same time last weekend. Nostalgic 2days 2023 is time.
You see, as anyone who knows me will attest, I love a good moan. There’s no better place to get me started than a classic car show. Or any car show for that matter.
Before I get too down, though, let’s talk about the good stuff, because there’s a a lot of At the annual event held in 2023 nostalgic hero Magazine.
If you want to see the best of Japanese classic cars, Nostalgia 2days is an event you can’t miss.Not just sports classics, but Tie The same goes for cars and family sedans.
The cars have all been perfectly preserved or restored and are presented in immaculate condition. It’s the polar opposite of the Tokyo Auto Salon, as evidenced by a crowd of middle-aged men snapping up Isuzu Plaza. At TAS, for many, the cars are second only to the promotional models.
In addition to the finished show cars, Nostalgic 2days is a great place to see partially restored vehicles. It gives you an idea of how much work goes into preparing these time machines.
Another thing I love about Nostalgic 2days is the used parts booth. It reminds me of browsing car boot sales in the UK, I’d love to see more in Japan.
There are also plenty of food trucks on hand, with a small eating and seating area between the display trucks. All is well and good, but I can’t help but think that despite the slight spring chill in the air, it’s better to be outside. That’s just one of my complaints. So now that I’ve started, let me continue with my moaning…
It’s all well and good to be able to see these amazing old cars up close, but it completely spoils me when I’m trying to bask in the nostalgia atmosphere of. Not to mention, it makes taking pictures at an event like this a little challenging.
The problem with Nostalgic 2days is that the cars are too packed and there are too many people, a point agreed by Dino, a veteran of the event. Basically it’s just Japan in general, but I think the same goes for many events around the world.
Another question, something Jun-san from Hardcore Tokyo agreed to when we were chatting next to the original kaido racer, Yes, for the most part, the cars will always remain as they are. We’ve all seen most auto shows before, and even new cars are basically like every other car. Take Star Road as an example.their car is Astonishing, But they never evolve.They will always be beautifully presented Jiusa like the next beautiful presentation Jiusha.
of course there are exceptions. Daddy Motor Works and Banzai Racing Equipment (BRE) are two companies that are pushing the boundaries Jiushe Can.The latter is a four-rotor power Hakosuka This year I’ll be highlighting that the former has some of the craziest Jiushe Build forever.
I can’t really complain though, because if we want to watch Mad Men Jiusa And then of course there are events like TAS and SEMA. The Las Vegas auto show seems to be more spacious and better laid out for viewing cars.
It really is an annoying little paradox to love cars but loathe where you see them. I can’t be the only one, so I’d love to know how you guys handle large crowds in small places.
For the high score, you can see more cars from Nostalgic 2days 2023 in the bonus gallery below, as well as a video of my drive around which you can view here.
