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?

Could this heavily modified Subaru 360 have been the inspiration for Nakai-san back in the late 80s?
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:
