Nissan was forward thinking on their flagship the Nissan Leopard F31 back in 1986: it featured a keyless entry card! Earlier Glorias and Cedrics already featured pin-code like systems, but they keyless entry card is going way further than that!
This card has the size of a credit card and the thickness of a modern smartphone, but allows the wearer to open the doors and trunk without the use of a key!
The system was actually quite simple:
Two sensors operate this system: one in the driver side mirror and another in the rear bumper. Both sensors will unlock either the driver side door or the trunk separately from each other.The system was only available on the Ultima edition of the Nissan Leopard F31.

Previously I thought the Nissan Cedric Y30 V3.0 Turbo Brougham VIP was supposed to be the longest name given to a car ever, but I stand corrected with this Nissan Leopard 870 Ultima GF31 3.0 V6 Twin Cam (intelligent adult coupe):
The Nissan Leopard GF31 is a typical mid 80s luxurious grand tourer and continuously improved with the latest and greatest technical gadgets like any Japanese car manufacturer did by the end of the 80s. Oh I love the 80s and Japanese cars from the bubble era!
The question is: what is an intelligent adult coupe?

Yesterday I received an email (sent to AEU86) from Denil Oh if we could run his Initial D legos box proposal on our forums. Of course we could, and even better: we’ll promote the heck out of it as it needs 10000 supporters to get it to reality and that sounds like it would be doable!
The Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86 complete with Takumi Fujiwara and the Fujiwara Tofu Shop the box would be an excellent starter for both kids and adults: adults (like me) remembering the series and buying the box for their kids to enjoy!
This legos box proposal is so brilliant, the car is a really simple yet stunning design: Read the rest of this entry →

A couple of days ago I read on Jalopnik that the Honda Museum in Kanazawa (Ishikawa Prefecture) in Japan is now available on Google Streetview. Of course you can’t read all the fine details on the exhibits but you surely can get a good impression of the museum and if I ever go to Japan I’ll certainly will visit the museum!
Next to the entrance this Honda RA271 formula one car welcomes you:
Next to it is a pristine S600 convertible.
Upstairs you will find even more formula one cars, like the world championship winning RA272: Read the rest of this entry →

Happy New Year with live and direct fireworks from the Netherlands!
Yes, that’s amateurs firing off professional fireworks and it is perfectly “legal” to blow off your hands on this very day.
Anyway, let’s hope 2012 will only bring goodness to you!
