Upcoming Event


Historic J is proud to reintroduce our signature event, Bayline. First held in 2012, Bayline set the record for the largest collection of classic Skylines in North America along with bringing together more than 200 Japanese classics and thousands of enthusiasts in the picturesque setting of the San Leandro Marina on the Bay. From a swap meet to food trucks and good music, Bayline gathered like-minded, passionate people for a day of fun and Japanese classic cars.

This year we are moving Bayline to Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. On looking the San Francisco skyline, this spacious park is set right on the water with cool weather and plenty of amenities. Food trucks, music, vendors, and plenty of Japanese classic cars will be present for your enjoyment. Trophies will be awarded to top participants in three categories. Admission is free for spectators so even if your project car isn’t finished, please come on down and enjoy a day with Northern California’s Japanese classic car community! Hope to see you there!

About Us


Based out of San Francisco, California, Historic J LLC is the premier Japanese classic car events company. We started in the Bay Area in 2012 with the inaugural Bayline event, setting a record for the largest collection of classic Nissan Skylines in North America. We soon expanded the events to include special guests and classic car celebrities from Japan such as Watanabe-san, owner of Rocky Auto, and Mary from the Ken & Mary campaign. Striving to make our events more enjoyable for participants and attendees, we work diligently to surpass ourselves constantly and make each succeeding events top the last. Our mission is to expand the awareness and passion of Japanese classic cars within the United States with innovative and exciting Japanese classic car shows and events.
