This Lancer 1600 GSR, though built in1974, is a replica of the Shinozuka-driven Lancer that was entered into the 1976 Southern Cross Rally (finished fifth). The owner of this beautiful tribute car bought it 2004, reprayed the body in that original green, then proceeded to turn the dreamcar of his childhood into Shinozuka's rally car.
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>
