A Day Of Car-Spotting: Toyota 2000GT, DR30 Skyline, Prince Gloria, etc...

June 13, 2018

On a recent Saturday I drove through the Japanese countryside on the lookout for rare and unusual JDM's, and I found some. The cars include, a Toyota 2000GT in mid restoration, a Tekkamen Skyline hardtop, a cool RT40 Toyota Corona 1600S, a Prince Gloria, plus some other odds and ends, like a Hakosuka.

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>
