One thing that annoys me about car shows, is repetition.&nbsp; It's like watching the same movie over and over.&nbsp; Sure, the movie might be awesome, and you will always love it, but sooner or later you want to see a new movie.&nbsp; This is how car shows can get.&nbsp; For me personally, I don't want to contribute to the monotony.&nbsp; Not that JCCS is monotonous; on the contrary.&nbsp; It is quite exciting and always surprising.&nbsp; And I think it should stay that way.&nbsp; So this year, I decided to enter the 1991 Trooper.&nbsp; Being a '91, I was worried it was "too new" to enter into the show, but all my research proves that the 1st generation 4dr Bighorn was released in Japan in 1985, which is the body style cutoff year for JCCS.&nbsp; All cars entered have to have a body style from 1985 or older, which meant my Trooper was in and I knew it would be the only one.&nbsp; I always say, "no love for Isuzu", and with a Trooper, you are certain to feel that way.&nbsp; Isuzu has always been small peanuts compared to Toyota, Honda and Nissan/Datsun, but in my opinion, it's the rarity, obscurity and difference that makes Isuzus (and Suzukis, Subarus and Daihatsus) important for shows like this.<br /><a name='more'></a><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.isuzugeek.org/forumpics/misc/jccs2014/03.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" src="http://www.isuzugeek.org/forumpics/misc/jccs2014/03.jpg" height="265" width="400" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">The designated "Isuzu spot" on the green was different this year.

It seems that in Japan, a higher level of maintenance is carried out throughout the life of a vehicle.&nbsp; I think this is a result of stricter road safety laws and inspection criteria, as well as the respect given to inanimate objects in general by Japanese culture. Rarely in the States do you see used vehicles of this quality, and you almost never find them in numbers.&nbsp; When I win the lottery, I will take a special trip to Japan to hand pick a selection of Isuzus to bring home and store in my ultimate Isuzu garage.&nbsp;
