Japanese Car Cruise-In and Super Street Meet

DATE: JULY 22, 2018


Los Angeles has always played a pivotal role in Japanese car culture and what better place to host such an event than the Petersen, located in the heart of the city. Last year’s Japanese car cruise-in was a rousing success with over 500 cars in attendance ranging from modified modern Subarus to classic Japanese iron like the legendary “Hakosuka” Skyline GT-R from the 1970s. The event brought out nearly 1,000 people who came together to celebrate all things Japanese with a spirit of camaraderie that made it a truly special occasion for all involved.

“Japanese cars are a huge part of California car culture, and the tuner scene here is unlike any other,” said Petersen Chief Marketing Officer Adam Langsbard. “Each manufacturer has its own group of loyal fans, and the turnout from local car clubs is tremendous. We’re thrilled to have Super Street Magazine involved this year, The Enthusiast Network (TEN) has been a great partner for the museum as a sponsor of the Hot Rod Gallery, so integrating their primary import culture magazine into this outstanding event is a perfect fit.”

On July 22, the Petersen Automotive Museum hosted its Japanese Car Cruise-In and Super Street Meet.  Last year's event brought out hundreds of SoCal’s finest street, show, and track cars from Civics to Skylines and everything in between.  This year was no different! All makes and models were welcomed for the annual Japanese Car Cruise-In and Super Street Meet.
