Just in case you missed the epic 2016 Nissan Jam, here’s a quick recap of what it was all about.

On June 12, 2016, La Palma Park in Anaheim, California, hosted a massive gathering of Nissan enthusiasts for the fourth annual Nissan Jam. This highly regarded event featured around 400 different Nissan, Datsun, and Infiniti models, all from different generations.

Super Street reported a variety of refurbished and rebranded models, all car types from roadsters to pickup trucks, as well as a range of engine types including SR, RB, KA, and VQ.

The 2016 Nissan Jam was an event held for tried and true Nissan enthusiasts. It wasn’t about the latest and greatest tech and modifications, instead it was about one thing: nostalgia for classic Japanese cars and to see what people have done with their Nissan, Datsun, and Infiniti models.

So did you miss the Nissan Jam, or do you just want to know where to get your next Japanese classic car show fix? Well, don’t worry, because we’ve compiled a list of races, Nissan car shows, and drifting competitions that may capture your attention.
