Apologies for not posting the ad for this before the fact. I was wishing very badly to see some old school Subarus yesterday and then when there weren't any, thought of you guys this morning. Just a note to say I wish some of you in the NY/NJ/CT area would have participated in yesterday's NY Rollaz Club Old School Japanese car show at Yonkers Raceway in NY. I brought my '77 Datsun B210 there and had a great time. As usual, there wasn't a single Subaru in attendance.

Here's a glimpse of what the show was about.

NY Rollaz's first annual Old School Car Show was held at the Empire City Casino, Yonkers Raceway. All-Japanese car shows used to be only on the West coast [where most of the old Japanese survivor cars are] but that is changing. There are some great cars in the northeast too, and here is a sprinkling of them.

This was the ONLY Honda in the show. Where are all of the old Hondas I asked? One guy said "the kids tore them all up!"

Congratulations to the NY Rollaz club as they held a very well organized and fun event.


Are there any members here that live in the northeast and have driveable old shool Subies?

Cheers,

Mike

Thanks Moosens,

They had a bigger show [300 cars I'm told] in CT two weekends ago. I wasn't aware of that one, but will try to keep you guys informed in the future. Bridgeport is in CT yes?

yeah , my city ... :rolleyes: and NO I didn't make that one either. Also found out about it too late. We did have a nice classic car show in downtown B'port and I think the Japanese one was maybe the same day , elsewhere ... I think at Captains Cove Seaport , at least I do remember attending an "old rice" show there a couple years ago.

We were ready to go to a Japanese motorcycle show in Mass. a couple weeks ago too , but we backed out at the last minute. I'm sorry I ever got rid of my Bridgestone 175 DT. Would love to have a small collection of vintage Hondas and Yamahas ... and a Bridgestone or two.

Mike , thanks for keeping us posted - well ,not so much this time :grin: , but please keep 'em coming. I swear if we get a truely cold winter I really want to get to the Ice Races ... which freaks out my wife something terrible. :lol:
