February 11, 2017 in what did i watch this week
Welcome to another Banpei Weekly video! Today we are at the sixth episode already and we feature a rusty AE86 pair, Mazda 929, GT86 spotted and more! Also the random brochure/magazine pick gets revealed, and be prepared for a big surprise!
As you may have noticed, the format got renamed. Last time I asked if anyone could come up with a good name for the newer format, as it started to get bigger than just what did I watch this week. AE86 Standard came up with the Banpei Weekly and I liked it a lot! Thanks again, AE86 Standard!
I also added a little down on the street in here. I spotted a Toyota GT86 (aka 86 / FR-S) in the parkinglot at Fosdem. I didn’t want to disturb the owner (he was calling someone on his phone) and I returned later to take a few pics and videos.

Tokyo Auto Salon always has the great or weird things at display. I already read from several sources that if there is one thing that has been dominating the Auto Salon this year it has to be the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ. (or Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S)
I guess this life sized Choro Q Toyota TRD 86 is no exception to this rule. 😉

Yesterday Jalopnik posted that two people deferred British advertisement for the Toyota GT86 (aka the Toyota 86 or Scion FR-S) because it contained wild driving. What? Just two people complaining can stop an advertisment being broadcasted?
Jalopnik called it Brazil like and that is somewhat true if you have watched Terry Gilliam’s movie…
…however I do think Toyota was aiming for a much more pressing world: the world of Grand Theft Auto! Read the rest of this entry →
July 10, 2012 in Family Album Treasures
Almost thirty years ago this guy bought a new Levin GTV AE86 and enjoyed it for a solid thirteen years!
Owning a hachi for such long period in time would definitely mean it has to be somewhere in the family album! I wonder if any Toyota GT86 owner would still own his/her GT86 in thirteen years time…
