G'day everyone. My name is Daniel and I make videos of the old and interesting cars I find in Japan and Australia.

Unfinished Business / At a Crossroad: Mid-90's ɛ̃fini MS-8 (Mazda/Eunos family)

June 14, 2017

I thought it was a Eunos, but I was wrong. In the 1990's Mazda's luxury brand was ɛ̃fini, and in addition to a pair of Citroëns, they had in their range about half-a-dozen Mazda-derived models.

This MS-8 hardtop was built in 1992. It has a 1,995cc V6 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>

The story of it all

Me: My name is Daniel O'Grady, I'm Australian, and I've always loved cars.
Wasabicars: Back in 2012 I happened upon a junkyard filled with some 1970's US muscle cars. <See video below.>

Left to rot - Abandoned American muscle-cars in Japan

January 25, 2012

I usually spend my free time exploring castles, but that's not my only interest. I also like cars, especially from the 60's & 70's, especially with a V8 and extra especially when they are in unrestored condition.
