Nissan BTCC...

The Nostalgia continues, this time with more from Nissan Headquarters, Yokohama...
 
In the form of this original 90's BTCC Nissan Primera...

Driven by Aiello / Leslie, it played a huge part in the peak Racing days of BTCC..

Feeling Nostalgic...

Recently I've gone even deeper into the 'Nostalgic' World, it seems everything attracts me...

I REALLY wish I had been around in the 60s,70s and 80s...Powerful times!
Expect some more interesting posts, but Car and Non-Car related...

For now, enjoy this RARE special footage of U2 in Tokyo, 1983..

Nagatoro Trip...

Every now and then, especially in Japan, we need to escape. Coming from the 'Emerald Isle', I'm partial to a little bit of 'Green' now and then. Being in Tokyo can take it's toll and we really need to escape somewhere, relax and recharge, so what do we do?

Jump on one of the many trains, this time to Nagatoro, Chichibu, Japan!

So why Nagatoro? Well for me, it's one of the most beautiful and relaxing places in Japan!
After a short walk from the station, you can sample many local delicacies along the way...

...To HERE... This is the reason we come to Nagatoro. Such a STUNNING setting!

No crowded trains, no signs, busy streets/crossings, shops etc, just Nature as it was intended!

Every now and then I think it's VERY important to take time out, to help us recharge!

Toyota GT86...in IRELAND

Just in time for the Donegal Irish Rally, the new Toyota 86 arrived on the Irish shores... 

Kelly's Toyota in Donegal arranged a Launch Party to tie in with the Rally!
 So if you're in Donegal for the weekend, stop by and get a look for yourself!

Since there's a HUGE Toyota following, this was great to see, and long anticipated!

I'm REALLY glad to see this car touch down in Ireland and get the credit it deserves...


Having followed and been involved with the '86' in Japan for so long, it is rewarding!


...and I have to say, It looks right at home on Irish soil, I'm sure it's going to be a HIT!


But of course, it will have to work alongside it's older brother, which has a HUGE following...
