Osaka Day 1: A Firetruck with No Doors! Classic Cars of the Glion Museum, Legendary Hayashi Racing

December 26, 2020

I get off a bus from Fukuoka to Osaka and within a couple of hours I'm doing a road test in a 1984 Toyota Landcruiser Fire truck! Then, we're off (In Flavien's 12a Turbo powered RE Amemiya tuned RX-7) to the GLion Museum which houses classic JDM's such as a 1963 Prince Skyline Sport, a Nissan Skyline GT-R (both KPGC110 Kenmeri and KPGC10 Hakosuka), a Mazda Cosmo L10B, and two beautiful Toyota 2000GTs from 1969. In the museum are several classic BMWs and other fine cars such a Rolls Royces, etc.
