are you a classic car buff?

 had scuds of rain in early morning but we heard that there were 390 japanese classic cars and 30 japanese classic motorcycle at the show this year.

早朝大降りの雨。だけど、通り雨だったみたいで、ショウが始まる頃にはすっかり止んでいた。クラシックな日本車が390台、オートバイは30台くらい集まっていたよ。どっちを向いても素敵な車ばかりで、最高の風景!
 





shinya told me that people used to call these cars "hydroscope" in japan.

Ayu,

Your photography just keeps getting better and better! Really like the low angle/offset framing shots. Quite nice.

It's true what Rockford says!
About the classics(cars and bikes),
that's my youth! When 18 me and my brothers all had our own cars. We only could afford second hand. In those days the datsuns were the sh*t!!! They were cheap secondhand and nobody seemed to know the potential these cars had. They where almost unbreakable, and if so, cheap in parts. They would run like Swiss made sewing machines..Datsun 100A coup, 100A cherry, 120Y, toyota celica... Even drove a couple of years in a Suzuki Alto 3cilinder automat!!! One hell of a gocart héhé

The bikes, never had the kawa's, but used all the T and later GT range from Suzuki. T250, T500, GT380 and GT550, only "THA BOMB" the GT750 stayed out of our reach... With the T250 i drove everyday to school , had two saddlebags with all my tools in it, so when the carburettors flooded, i could clean the flooding needles in less than 10minutes and still be in time at school!!! At the stop signs it would beat the shit out of any four stroke up to 750cc!! The beginings of my mechanical days, purely out of economical reasons...Loved those days!!!
