March 17, 2017 in banpei weekly, video
This week in the Banpei Weekly we have a Nissan Skyline Van VBC110, Datsun 200L (aka the butaketsu / pigsbutt Laurel in Japan) and an update on the Toyota AE86!
Yes that’s a whole lot of things! But wait, there is also the channel update!
Last week, shortly after posting the Banpei Weekly episode 9, the banpei.net channel on Youtube reached 500 subscribers!
Many thanks to all of you subscribing! This really is a milestone for the channel!
Now if you wish to know more about it, watch the full episode below: Read the rest of this entry →
March 18, 2010 in carina sightings
Last friday Michael from Retro Classics posted some pictures of the New Zealand Nationals 2010, including a Carina AA63 coupe going head to head with a Corolla AE70 hardtop:
Toyota Carina AA63 coupe and Corolla AE70 hardtop
The coupe features a set of SSR Longchamps at front and some less wide rims at the rear (probably the extra set of tires). It looks very good with the Longchamps, so a mental note to myself: buy a set whenever you can get them! 😉
Dunno what’s up with the hood, but it looks loose on the picture above and fastened on the picture below:
Toyota Carina AA63 coupe
Somehow the Carina single headlights look much better on a coupe than on a sedan!
You can find more pictures of the Carina, Corolla and many other great classics (like a
810910 Bluebird hardtop!) on Retro Classics blog or at their Flickr page.
March 8, 2010 in for sale
I found this damn nice Hungarian Nissan Gloria hardtop 430 for sale on Autoscout:
For sale: damn nice Nissan Gloria 430
Also all pictures of the Gloria are just as beautiful as the Gloria itself! I didn’t even know that Nissan actually sold the 430 in Europe! Price is not even touching 6K euros, so a definite want! 🙂
Only drawback is that all these images of what I could do with it keep popping up in my head… Something like Team Madonna did for instance… So maybe a no go for me…
You can find it for sale here: Nissan Gloria 430 hardtop @ Autoscout24
