Japanese Classic Car Show - 2011 - Long Beach

The 7th annual Japanese Classic Car Show was held at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, on September 10th, 2011. This was my first time attending the show, even though I live in Long Beach, and have for most of the last 10 years or so.  The morning of the 10th was a weird one, as we had lightning, thunder, and even hail. Odd for Southern California, we don't get much hail. At the show there were a number of vendor booths, and cars parked next to the Queen Mary right on the bay, which provides a nice backdrop for a car show.  After the crazy morning, it stayed fairly overcast until the afternoon, and then cleared up to our typical SoCal weather.

I have never seen overwhelming car engines this many before. The car show was filled with various cars that you may want to find.
