Welcome to JDM Trivia #2!
For some time now I have been pondering about the ridiculously long car names for the 80s and 90s JDM cars. I gathered data from various Japanese car manufacturers, made a potential selection of models, looked up their brochures and wrote down the name as advertised.
What I did was probably not a very good scientific approach but for a long shot this probably will do and I may have left out two or three ridiculously long car names this way. As I’m a database guru I put everything in a database and made my calculations based on that.
This is probably what you are waiting for: why I put those particular five cars in the teaser. Well that’s because they are the top five longest car names. So here we go from five to one.
Since last weeks question did not get answered I decided to change the format a bit from Question of the Week to JDM Trivia!

So I double checked with a Gazelle S110 I featured a long time ago:
The corner lights are different, but this is a kouki (late) model and the zenki (early) model did feature full orange corner lights. Apart from that it does look very similar!
And this is the common Mitsubishi Galant Σ we all are familiar with: Continue reading
