August 10, 2014 in Retro, reverse fetish, WTF
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, so naturally in the US and Europe we love the JDM cars and RHD is actually a novelty. It is no different in Japan: they love USDM and EUDM car: in the past I’ve posted a few other reverse-fetishes. In this case it is all about a left hand drive (LHD) Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86 at the HaCHiRoCK Festa 2008:
Seen from the dash it is an USDM model (tachometer on the left, speedo in miles), the seat has the inflatable lumbar pump (as seen on the Celica XX) on the driver seat and the body style is a JDM Trueno or USDM GT-S. The source only has this particular photo so it is unclear whether an existing RHD has been converted to LHD or this car is actually a genuine USDM Toyota Corolla GT-S imported into Japan (most probably), so we’ll probably never know for sure…

Just have a look at the way the hood opens: Read the rest of this entry →
