The annual Japanclassic.ch Meeting was held this sunday, so i hopped into my EK9 and my buddy Daniel joined me in his Prodrive P1 coupé. Due to the nice weather the turnout was really great with a relaxed attitude and lots of cool cars. Unfortunately many people decided to leave early to enjoy a ride in the sunny weather or so. So when we arrived at 13.30 first cars weare leaving already. My Pics are mainly from the afternoon, but i found some photos online from the morning. I didn’t see most of the cars in those pictures, so there must have been a lot of other cars in the morning 🙂 Check out more pictures HERE
As usual it began already interresting on the outside with an R33 to the left 😀 In the link above you can see there were some more Skylines in the morning…
Now this one is another rare sight, a Laurel C130 Hardtop Coupé. Seems to be a legit swiss market model. unfortunately had a few dents in the back, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed. The driver seems like he’s owned it for a while :
And speaking of rallye. I heard the owner talking about the scratches on the rear corner and he said he just went to a rallye the day bevore the show. Seems like the car was used hard. Just how it should be. right?
H-Powers “Minty-Fresh” EJ1 Civic is a work of art. Maybe not everyones colour taste but the work behind it is incredible. Probably switzerlands cleanest engine bay 🙂 Check out the Build-thread here.
And staying with the Hondas, I alyways had a soft spot for the old civic Hatchback. Somehow my EK9’s grand-grand-dad. It’s a shame that since the EP3 all Civics just look like crazy overloaded compared of the timeless cool down-to-earth attitude of all older generations.
Here we have a trio of red sports cars 😀 FD3S RX-7 twin turbo to the left (rare to see an un-modified LHD swiss car!), a beautifully modified MR-2 SW20 in the middle and an AW11 Turbo MR-2 to the right. Geat combo 🙂
Of course a bit “fast and furious” belongs to every Japanese carshow and these 300ZX and MR-2 proudly represented their japanese Veilside Bodykits 🙂
Oh and now to a nice trio. The Toyota Carina, Cressida and the Celica all looked like they were fresh out of the factory. Absolutely stunning and i didn’t even know a cressida existed in switzerland. Was super happy to see this combo!
Another rare sight in switzerland is an AE86 Notchback corolla. this one seemed to be inspired a bit by the japanese Motorfix cars when it Comes to color-choice and mods 🙂
This KE70 Corolla Liftback was an absolute gangster machine. I just love the style and attitude this thing has. For some reason it just screams badass. The bodykit really fits the car and i wonder about the Story behind it. 🙂
One of my secret favourites was this Suzuki Alto. Looked absolutely mint with low mileage and has an Engine the size of a bread 🙂 I just love it because of the fact that somebody saved this thing and kept it in such a good condition!
One of the reasons i attended the show was to see my Buddy Stefan’s Laurel C30 on it’s first drive since 27 years. absolutely stunning, but i will leave you with this teaser and come up with a full post about it soon. Brilliant Work 🙂
Now this one was cool. A prelude convertible. As you might know these never were sold like this. According to the owner a german company used to modify them like this but it wasn’t a huge success since the body got a bit weak after chopping off the roof and tended to flex a bit. Didn’t know about these and really cool to see a survivor!
I’d like to thank the organizers around Heiko for the effort they put into this event. it’s admission free and only powered by sponsors and unpaid manhours, so i know it’s alot of work behind it and i’d like to thank them for the work they put together for all the enthusiasts every year!
Im Sorry for all the guys i missed to photograph. I was so busy talking to all the nice people and old friends i met there, i somehow forgot the show was about cars in between 🙂
Thanks for all the nice talks and laughs with all the cool people we met and see you in 2017!
