Friday Video: junkyard stroll in Japan (part 3)

September 28, 2012 in video

What amazes me most about Japanese junkyards is the number of luxurious cars stashed there…
Nissan President 80k kilometer

This video by BANKAKUEMIKO is filled with cars like the Nissan Cedric Y30, Toyota Celsior, Toyota Crown Majesta UZS141, Skyline R33 and a Nissan President: Read the rest of this entry →

Car chases: Seibu Keisatsu Cedric 430 patrol car

February 2, 2012 in Car chases

Now that was a bit confusing: no car chase and it is even unsure if this Nissan Cedric 430 is indeed originally used in the Seibu Keisatsu series…

It does state that this Cedric 430 has been fully restored in the Western Police liverage including the obvious slotmag alloys. Well at least it looks like it could be involved in a huge police car carnage anytime! ;)

Found at Minkara

Car chases: Seibu Keisatsu carnage mix!

In following of : even more gruesome carnage from the third season of Seibu Keisatsu! (Western Police)
Disclaimer: the two videos are not suitable for fainthearted J-tin enthusiasts!

In the first minute it starts off with a huge explosion and a Nissan Bluebird SSS coupe. Could it be involved in the explosion?

In part 2 even more oldskool Nissans will be killed and if you watch all the way up to 8:01 also a non-Nissan: a Mazda Capella CoupĂ©. Or could it be a RX-2?! Read the rest of this entry →

Friday video: junkyard stroll in Japan

November 4, 2011 in video

We all see half of Japan’s car inventory being sold as secondhand to the rest of the world through various auction platforms. So that would lead us to the conclusion that Japan’s junkyards must be quite empty and deserted…

WRONG! Just have a look at this video where someone takes a stroll at a (unknown) Japanese junkyard:

I love the detail that the first Crown, the fourth Crown (Majesta) and the first and third Cedric Y32 still have the knitted/embroided traditional headrest covers in place! Also that the second Crown Super Saloon has a full width front bench in place. And what also strikes me is that most of them are largely intact with the keys still in the ignition!
And last but not least: seeing the pristine Cedric 430, Mitsubishi GTO, Nissan Leopard F31 (not about the other Leopard), Nissan Laurel C35, Nissan Skyline R33 GTS4 in such a dreadful state almost brought tears in my eyes…

In part 2 even more oldskool Nissans will be killed. Be prepared for tens of Glorias/Cedrics to be killed in a useless five minute slowmotion fight against a dirt truck in a mine field! Read the rest of this entry →
