Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Video: Run, Beemer! Run!

Back in the early 90s I loved BMWs and especially the looks of the BMW E31 and even the “poor mans” 840Ci had a (back then) potent 286hp V8 in it… In the late 90s I refound myself and started to like the Japanese cars more, especially Toyotas and Nissans… I think this video sums up my own reflection perfectly:

The poor Beemer is chased down this tiny circuit by a big swarm of AE86s (sounds like a swarm of wild bees), a AA63 Carina and a Laurel C35 Toyota Chaser JZX100!
Run, Beemer! Run!

    The BMW is the star of that video, despite only getting shared camera time with the gaggle of AE86’s.

    LOL! :D
    I guess it is more or less from what angle you see it! :D

    I understand your BMW – Carina liking…

    I took the bumper off my Carina the other day doing some minor respraying, and with the bumper off it reminded me of an old 80’s BMW shape…

    I think you’ll find that’s a JZX100, not a C35.

    Thanks! Corrected that… :)
    I judged that upon the taillights, but after watching the video a few times more it certainly is a JZX100!
