Thursday Nights in Santa Clara

DSC_3500
On Thursday the petrolhead rolled out to the monthly last Thursday Classic Car Meet in Santa Clara, CA. We were lucky enough to hitch a ride with a true petrolhead Lloyd L. from San Mateo. His beautiful E-Type Jaguar was definitely the highlight of the night. Truly one of the most beautiful cars ever made.

DSC_3508There was definitely some bipolarity going on at the meet, as there were both very ratty and full show cars present.

DSC_3493The most presented car at these meets is usually the Datsun 510, aka Nissan Bluebird. Troy Ermish, a professional racer/shop owner who built the petrolhead’s Fairlady Z’s big brake kit, was also present with his authentic Nissan Blue Bird.

DSC_3476We were very happy to see MG well represented with this classy MGB, an important piece of British Automotive History that is often taken for granted. With the E-Type Jag and MGB, this meet is becoming more than just a Japanese Classic Car get-together.

We will end this article with the perfected stance of Andy Y.’s RB20DET 240Z. He is also a friend of the petrolhead, and provider of the photos from today’s post. You can catch more of his photo action his Flickr.
