It’s Friday so here is another video to enjoy: Nomuken drifting a Honda City Turbo II!
You can actually drift a Honda City Turbo II then? I thought they were front wheel drive!
Well yes you can: with a little bit of help from the handbrake and a Toyota Starlet Glanza V EP91 Turbo engine. The Honda City Turbo II also got the nickname bulldog, so does the Chihuahua refer back to the Toyota Starlet? Like a fancy dressed up hairless skinny bulldog?
The storyline of this episode of Seibu Keisatsu is simple: some bad guys stole a bunch of cars (a Nissan Fairlady Z S30 and a pigsbutt Nissan Laurel C130) and Chief Daimon and his men are chasing the truck they are loaded on.
The Machine RS-1 (Nissan Skyline DR30) seems to have gotten an upgrade with blazingly new computers that can follow a transceiver (note the misspelling at 0:31) and lead them to the bad guys. Chief Daimon joins the chase with his Nissan Fairlady Z 200Z-T. Other notable cars are the civilian Nissan 260Z 2+2 and a Nissan Gloria 230 sedan (no hardtop) crashing with a Nissan Bluebird-U.
Of course in the end, as always, the bad guys get away before they can be caught.
You can watch the full clip below:
And I posted the big finale some time ago and you can find it here.
Today I really enjoyed this Toyota Crown history documentary ranging from the first Toyopet Crown S30 to the 2008 Toyota Crown S200:
My personal favorite remains the Kujira Crown coupe. If I had all the money in the world that Crown would be in the top ten of my wishlist!
One of the Nissan Skyline C110s in this Seibu Keisatsu car chase ends up taking a dive into a pool:
Not only the pool dive, but the whole scene is hilarious: it all starts out with a bad guy leading two black Nissan Skyline C110 police cars to their hideout, setting off the bad guys fleeing in a Nissan Patrol. This kicks off the big chase including Nissan Cedric 430s and ending the chase for the Nissan Skyline C110 above in the pool
