Roadster at the Monterey JAI event

Post by ted heaton » Fri Jul 20, 2018 11:13 pm

Motor Trend organized the Japanese Automotive Invitational event at Monterey Car Week this year.
JAI highlights Japanese automotive achievement, innovation and design.
Only the best vehicles submitted for display were accepted.
DROPS and 311s member Tim Corcoran's beautiful black 64 3 seat 1500 will be there to represent roadsters.
GOOD WORK Tim!!

Hi Tom,
Tim brought his black one to Solvang this past year along with Ted with his blue one. I am inspired after seeing this in person and yes I hope one day mine could be as clean as Tim's!
