Pure #joyofmachine: Jcca Photo Attack

If you go by the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, the following post should be worth about 120,000 of them. With as much raw material as I gathered at Sunday’s JCCA New Year Meeting, I’ve been struggling with how I should approach posting about this massive event. After a bit of thought, I decided I’d wrap up my coverage in fairly straightforward way – by sharing a  giant load of photos!

If anything, I thought this might be the best way to try and convey the sensory overload of the New Year Meet. As you look through the photos, don’t forget keep in mind that this is still just a tiny fraction of the overall selection of cars that gathered in Odaiba in Saturday. With enough time and bandwith I probably could have turned this into a 1,000 photo post…

Anyway.grab a beverage, sit back, and enjoy the show.

Well, there you have it.

Perhaps you guys are feeling a bit of the joy and exhaustion I felt on Sunday evening? I’m also curious to hear what you think about this sort of “photo assault” method of event coverage Let me know in the comments section.

Don’t forget your desktops below.

There are cars in here that I will never ever see, which are cool as all hell. However, there is ONE car in this post that I could possibly get my hands on, and it's that Violet Wagon. I don't know when was the last time I saw one, years for sure, but they WERE sold in Mexico. Yet no one does anything with them as they only came in 4 door and Wagon form. I oughta try and change that.

"Joy and exhaustion"? Yes, you captured it well. Reminds me of my experience with car shows in Japan. I just took picture after picture, filling up the memory card. Love the delivery style. Simple, straightforward, yet still delivers full sensory overload.

how come on a lot of cars i see these days, in japan or in stance meets or whatever, the cars' bonnets are never properly mounted? they're always out of alignment on the back part, even if it lifts at the front. is that a style thing or is there a real reason for it, or do people just unanimously suck hard at mounting aftermarket bonnets

Please stop, Mike. This is TOO much win for only one article.. I want to look through it over and over again. can't stop!

Wow, a lot well known machines there (via the interwebs). Some of those Daruma Celicas were awesome.

(This style of post is cool and I can see how you can easily run out of time).

I am researching about shakken (car inspection) now since I will have to put my car through it soon and man, there are a lot of rules.  And, a lot of these cars seem to break them.

Sorry for my not perfect english, but, i have a question: in japan isn't forbidden to modifing cars like these? Japan people are very lucky, here, in italy, all is forbidden and it's impossible to Use a modifing car on the streets

 @ComJive They're actually not mounted incorrectly.  A lot of people tend to open their bonnets but then just leave the safety catch clicked in, which ends up being especially noticeable on front hinged cars because it looks slanted.  The bonnet is released but just not open all the way.

 @Mike Garrett  @TheShinigami Thanks to you I've watched through the article once more. :) Make it stop!But seriously, these kind of articles bring inspiration and some new ideas.

 @K's I have thought this and you are probably right.  I do know that changing the width may just mean a different class of vehicle.  Height....the limit is 9cm.  That is nothing!  I do find it funny thinking about people bringing their cars minus all the mods to the inspection station.  Those techs MUST know what is going on.

 @K's also, it seems that toe-in is the only thing checked as far as alignment.  so, that crazy oni camber we see is okay?! I guess so.
