Whether you took your first date out in a Ford or a Toyota, car enthusiasts of any nationality should head over to this Sunday’s Super American Festival in Shizuoka.

The festival, now in its 21st year, is a day of drag racing, car shows and live music all with a focus on a classic American vibe. Japan’s best drag-racing team will zoom down Fuji Speedway’s tracks while classic American cars, Harleys and lowriders will compete for various awards. On top of all the engine revving, bands such as the 38-year-old rockabilly group Cools and soul trio The Wanderers will lay down a 1950s groove to soundtrack the day.
