Hilarious: Prius Super Silhouette racer!

April 10, 2014 in hilarious by banpei

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! :D

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 →

Hilarious: Super Duper Toyota Crowns!

October 1, 2013 in hilarious by banpei

While browsing the interwebs I do encounter a lot of different websites and some of them are more interesting than others. Some others are less interesting but do feature hidden gems in not that interesting things. Take for instance this Toyota Crown S120 brochure which features this model/type overview in one of the last pages:
Toyota Crown MS120/GS120 brochure
What strikes me is that about every model of the Toyota Crown is super: Sedan Super Deluxe, Sedan Super Saloon, Sedan Super Saloon Extra, Station Wagon Super Saloon, Hardtop Super Edition, Hardtop Super Saloon and the cherry on top is the Hardtop Super Saloon Extra! How much more super can it get? ;)

Some time ago Daniel O’Grady from Wasabi Cars posted a video about a neglected private car-collection where he mentioned that every car in Japan features a super deluxe somewhere: Read the rest of this entry →

Hilarious: Subaru RWB360

May 25, 2012 in hilarious by banpei

Could this heavily modified Subaru 360 have been the inspiration for Nakai-san back in the late 80s?
Subaru RWB360?
Or was it the other way around?

This 360 has been modified with the same ingredients as Nakai-san modifies his Porsches. See for yourself in this video: Read the rest of this entry →

Now this is obviously not the best spot to show off your kouki Corolla Levin AE86 at the JCCA New Year Meeting 2012:

Hilarious: Bassie en Adriaan movie trailer

November 28, 2011 in hilarious by banpei

In yesterdays post I touched the subject Bassie en Adriaan already a bit and while searching through all intros to find the correct Prelude (in which I failed) I stumbled upon this alternative movie trailer for the Bassie en Adriaan en de verdwenen kroon (Bassie and Adriaan and the disappeared crown) which is brilliantly done!


No it is not a Toyota Crown that disappears, but actually a genuine crown. ;)
In this trailer you will see the bad guys drive a Lancia Thema, the Dutch police pull a Volvo 340 sideways (yes, they really drove them in the 80s!) and see Adriaan do a batman like U-turn in the Honda Prelude!
