Most cruise nights are pretty predictable. There will be several Tri-5 Chevrolets, plenty of Mustangs and Camaros, a few rat rods, and some muscle cars. After a while, they start to blend together and it takes something really special to grab attention. The meet at JDM Legends wasn’t like that. The cars that showed up were all so unusual (save a couple of Subaru WRXs) and rarely seen that they made this meet seem like a whole new world. There were Starlets, 620s, MR2s, and Cressidas, to name a few.

It’s like they say, if you eat steak every night, you’ll get bored of steak. This assemblage of cars was a refreshing evening of sushi (lazy analogy, I know) after oh so many steak dinners.
It is always great to see mini-trucks. So few are left, especially in places where snow and salt cause rust.
Creativity abounds. Who would have thought a Cressida wagon could be so cool?
This Toyota Starlet was a real highlight. It is a tiny little car, and has been upgraded to an AE86 1.6l engine. Best of all, it’s rear wheel drive.
Thanks to JDM Legends for opening up their shop and inviting us to spend an evening with them.
