The Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet 2018

The Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet -  free to attend, bad ass classic Japanese cars, good local craft beer, cool/cold weather, and lots of car people.  I'd say this year's turnout for JNCM was pretty good.... not too crazy or out of hand like the Wekfest Pre Meet, but enjoyable without too much concern lol.  With that being said, we really appreciate those who attended, [...]
