Spetember Car Spots
21 Sep, 2010
Being a car nut and living in Japan, 2 things that go very well together. Japan is a country packed with car maniacs but they can be a bit selfish, they like to keep the good stuff for themselves.
During my stay here I spot very nice cars on a daily basis, but I don’t always have a camera with me to take a picture. Sometimes I really wish I did, but that’s life!
One of the most famous cars that are only sold in Japan is the Skyline R34 GTR. This is a perfect example of a completely stock one cruising around Tokyo. But seeing them so often make them less special, I don’t turn my head any more when I see one. Although the r35 GTR, I just love it.
What you don’t see everyday is a nice Volkswagen Golf V with Black Advan RS wheels and a killing lipkit. This thing looked so mean! I can really appreciate German cars with Japanese tuning influences. Aaaaah BMW M3 with Volks TE37 *drool*.
I am appreciating these vintage machines more and more. Just look at this! Isn’t it amazing. Ooh this is a Datsun/Nissan Skyline 2000. It could do with a good wash up though. But it is really nice to see it none the less! Are those the stock wheels on there btw, does somebody know?
Whenever you go to Super Autobacs in Tokyo you know you are going to see a lot of nice cars in the parking area. Although I somehow messed up all the other pictures, here is a fine example of Toyota Mark II. Hmm what kind of wheels is he sporting on the back of the car? Nismo?
Skylines don’t turn my head any more but these little things still always do! These cars are just pure fun to drive! I sort of miss mine. Those watanabe wheels look so good on a NA Roadster.
Special pic for Wesley, who requested more Civic Type-R FD2 pics (since he owns one back in Holland). Here you have one. You don’t see these that often here though.
Aaah a nice 350Z, I like to look at these cars, they look so mean! I don’t know what kind of body-parts it’s wearing but it looks nice. And a 350Z with Bronze Work Emotion CR-Kai wheels, it can never go wrong.
Although not a lot this is it for now. Maybe I should bring the camera more often.
