A few days ago HachiRoku.com.au blogged about Keiichi Tsuchiya’s hachi buildup. It was probably shot somewhere in the late 90s/early 2000s. (2023 edit: it was 2002!) I didn’t want you to miss this video (in case you didn’t read it yet at HR):

You can see Tsuchiya really pushed the car before! Structural damage, cracks in the front towers and the seat bracket ripped loose! All is repaired and the car is repainted in it’s original white color. And what stroke me most was that his hachi suffered from rust on exactly the same spots as mine used to have.
