Going back to the US

Finally, I got a plane ticket to the US for a one-month visit although I haven't decided when I will return to Japan.  I can't wait to drive my patina bus that I left in the US.

I was thinking of going back to the US sooner but I coudn't go until now. My work had been keeping me from going.

I'm building the engine for my bus using the NPR 88mm cylinder kit (a Japanese brand kit) that I have been reserving for myself for a ling time.  Needless to say, it's already no longer available (please let me know if you know someone that has the kit in stock).

I have only 10 days until my US trip but haven't finished building the engine yet...

Streeet Car Nationals 2012

 

We participated in the largest outdoor custom car show in Japan.  It was held in Daiba, Tokyo.  The wheather was great and it remainded me of California.

Over 1000 cars which included old American cars, Japanese cars, pickup trucks and of course, VWs were entered at the show.

We had a booth to sell retro items like very old radio flyers, lanterns, signs etc. but couldn't make plenty of money this time.

Anyway, I had a great time.

Here are the photos we took them at the show.
