BigBird...

Some sad news this week, that the 'Nissan Skyline Saga' continues in America...

This time with the 'Big Bird' R33 Skyline..famous from the 'Fast and the Furious' movie...

Unforunately I can't exactly say what I REALLY want to say about the U.S Government's handling of this strange and bazaar 'Skyline History' in America. The only thing I will say is to search the Internet and Forums to find out exactly what I'm talking about. Many of us in the Car Industry have known the story for years now, but surprisingly MANY of you do not.

The ending is simple...Skyline, Complications, Illegal, CRUSHED...

'Big Bird' R33, owned by Justin Beno is scheduled for CRUSHING Today!

The whole situation makes me VERY angry and sad for genuine owners/enthusiasts...
It could all have been handled so much better than it has been. With more RESPECT!
Will it ever end? I doubt it, the 'Skyline Saga' in America has a way to go yet...Sadly!

You can read more here about the History, go educate yourself, it's Interesting!

Nostalgic Carina GT-TR

I just had to share a scan shot of this Toyota Carina GTR from June's Nostalgic Magazine..

I have always loved the 1980's Carina, and this one is built to perfection, Turbo'd engine, Upgraded Suspension, Brakes, RAYS TE37 wheels etc. It seems everything is 'Nostalgic' recently, Maybe it's soon time for me to buy something even older than the AE86...

Toyotas, at Nostalgic Show...Part 3

As you may know, I'm a Toyota enthusiast at heart (though I love everything on wheels)... Vintage Auto Japan had, by far, some of the best cars of the show, in STUNNING condition...
It's getting VERY rare to see cars like these now, especially in such an original state...

First up, this beautiful Toyota Celica...the 80's at it's best!






Second for me, was this rare Toyota Corona...It's getting hard to find ANY Corona's recently!

I love the originality, and everything about these Iconic Cars of the 1980's...

Golden Week..Yokohama

Golden Week continues in Japan, with a short trip back to Yokohama!
It just so happens there was an Oktoberfest Beer event...At Red Brick!
Only in Japan, can we have Oktoberfest in April, it was good fun!
Things were VERY expensive though, so we didn't stay TOO long... More soon!
