Seven years ago I posted a funny picture of Initial D cosplayers, so when I bumped into these two cosplay pictures I remembered the first vividly:
I must say these costumes are really sturdy made: three of them are based on shopping strollers. Itsuki’s Levin looks horrible, Takumi’s Sprinter Trueno even worse and the Subaru Impreza 22b looks acceptable. Ryosuke’s Mazda Savanna RX-7 looks the best and I bet the most sweat and tears were put into that costume!
BTW: the best looking character is Bunta Fujiwara in the Subaru! That guy really lives up to the original role!
Now there is another Takumi in the second picture: Read the rest of this entry →

While doing some research on the Toyota Celica Supra mk2 (aka Toyota Celica XX in Japan) I found this hilarious photo:
There is a Toyota Celica Supra mk2 P-Type parked on top of the last model Mazda Protegé (aka Mazda 323 and Mazda Familia) sedan in a typical parking lot. It is clearly a face-lifted P-type (Performance type) Celica Supra as it features the dished 7 inch wide Celica Supra wheels, the overfenders and the wraparound front indicators. It could be a MA61 or MA67 (sources differ on this matter) but it clearly is (or was) a mint Toyota Celica Supra mk2.
Now what went wrong here? Did the owner just confuse the pedals? Or did he/she try to conquer the Mazda Protegé? Or did he/she tried to park sideways? We’ll probably never know…

Fake or not: this video of a Nissan Laurel C130 pigsbutt (butaketsu Laurel) backing up against the dude helping reverse parking is very funny:
I really wonder what will happen…

As a child I loved the Birdman and the Galaxy Trio cartoons by Hanna Barbara. Birdman is capable of flying and shooting solar beams out of his fists. So when I spotted this cover of a 1971 Suzuki Fronte SSS brochure I really wondered why Birdman needed a car anyway?
Or could it be that the Suzuki Fronte SSS is actually faster than Birdman?

At the Tokyo Auto Salon this year the Nihon Automobile College (NATS) made a couple of cars based upon another car. This Prius has been modified into a Celica Super Silhouette racer:
Just imagine this Prius Super Silhouette going down the Fuji International Speedway in the Group 5 competition with a whopping 180 km/h with flames spitting out of th exhaust pipes right under the front doors!
The front mimics a Celica Super Silhouette racer and at the rear it shows some more Toyota Celica RA25 inspiration with the banana tail lights: Read the rest of this entry →
