Japanese Rustoseums: Kyusha Kai Toyota Mark II GX71 wagon

Seeing a custom car end up in a junkyard is a real shame, especially if it is a nice kyusha kai Toyota Mark II GX71 wagon like this example:

The blue color with its pearlescent paint kind of gives it away as a real show car and when BANKAKUEMIKO moves around the car the tiny details make it more and more obvious: the flushed wagon hatch, the wire wheels on the rear seat, the custom vinyl wrapped trim, the xenon lights and most obvious the lengthened bonnet which fits it right into the kyusha kai, shakotan and/or kaido racer scene.

Your favorites: pick your Soarer Z10

An intriguing photo: at the left you can see a sharknosed kaido racer, next to it a kyusha kai on SSR Formula Mesh, next to that it looks like an almost unmolested track toy and on the far right a shakotan with an oil cooler on its chin spoiler.
Your favorite Soarer Z10

Carina Sightings: Red shakotan Carina AA63

Carina Sightings: pink shakotan Carina AA63

For my other blog Bosozoku Style I regularly visit various bosozoku style related sites. On AllJapanExpress I came across this pink shakotan Carina AA63:

Nicely lowered, overfenders and SSR Mk I rims at the rear. Just a few mods away from becoming a kaido racer! :)

I’m not sure what is worse on this Carina, the color or the bodywork:

Somehow I’m relieved this car did not have huge spoilers, oil coolers and a bamboo spears exhaust, but on the other hand it would have been fun to see such a thing. ;)
