And, on Sundays they offer rides in their museum pieces.  Cool way to be sure the engines get sufficient turnover.

I'm going since I can't make JCCS this year.  I'm interested in seeing the museum, too.

 

You throw in an East LA Japanese food truck, that's a win in my book.

And, for a bonus you get to drive by the almost invisible Los Angeles Air Force Base !  Yes, it does exist.

Stanley’s still in the shop so I won’t be taking him. Dangit! I may drive out there and check it out anyway if nothing comes up. I never knew about this museum.

I was watching the news and (so far) the weatherman is predicting a 30% chance of rain for Saturday.   I know it's a few days out, but that really would suck if it's raining Saturday..

Turnout for today's JDM @ ADM show in El Segundo was smaller than last year, probably because of the weather, which actually turned out to be quite pleasant with overcast skies, just a few bouts of light drizzle, and temps in the low '70s. The parking lot to the south of the ADM wasn't even used this year, whereas it was full last year. Some folks I spoke to who came from points north reported brief rain showers (like, wipers ON), which is unusual for SoCal this time of year, but probably kept more than a few "I never drive it in the rain" owners parked in their garages. Those of you in the great PNW will surely scoff, and all those no shows deserve it if you ask me!  

 

At any rate, here's some Datsun's and a few Nissans I got mostly in focus. 

 

Abe Froman had impeccable timing and scored pole position with his Bluebird Coupe.

This '68 510 4-door done up in early '80s blacked out chrome trim style, took the Best '60s award.

Not sure if this turbo Z won an award, but body and paint were impressive, and it sounded mean.

All-in-all it was a pretty chill show. Too bad the weather put a damper on turnout. Next year they plan to shut the whole street down, so stay tuned...

...and a few non-Datsun/Nissans of note.

 

Immaculately preserved Mazda 626 2-door 5-speed with 58k miles. Looked minty showroom fresh. Took home an award, deservedly so.

Honda Prelude Si was nearly as minty fresh. I think this was maybe an '85?  That interior...

Toyota Carina.

'73 Toyota Corolla SR. One of the nicest cars of the show IMO.
