It’s Friday, so I have another video for you! I was doubting whether I should post this under the Rustoseums or the Friday Video category. I chose the latter because it is quite a lengthy video to watch! Dino Dalle Carbonare, Dino DC on Youtube, is a quite famous car photographer who works and lives in Japan. He posts regularly on Speedhunters, but nowadays he also is more active on Youtube.
Abandoned Japanese cars in Tokyo
A few weeks ago he posted this video about the abandoned Japanese cars he encounters on a daily basis. This is quite similar to what Daniel O’Grady has been dedicating his entire channel to, but for Dino this is quite a side step. As Dino lives near Tokyo, most of these cars are found in the greater Tokyo area.
I have no idea what has gotten into Dino Dalle Carbonare but lately he seems to be very much into the Toyota Carina AA63! He proved this by posting the N-Style Carina earlier this week on Speedhunters:
The N-Style Carina certainly has seen an overhaul since the last time I posted about it: two tone paintscheme, wilder camber and deeper dish!
At Speedhunters Dino Dalle Carbonare made three jaw dropping posts about the RC scene in Japan and I was quite surprised a remote controlled Toyota Carina AA63 was featured in two of those posts!
First of all the last photo of the second post was this drifting Carina. What a way to end the post! 🙂
The Carina Firevan footage I found earlier was shot at the Hellaflush meeting at FISCO organized by Fatlace! @Fatlace: you guys did a great job!
Anyway, I did find some photos of the meeting at both Nori Yaro and Speedhunters and thought it would be nice to share them with you. I especially like the one shot by Alexi from Nori Yaro:
The mise en scene has something omnious…
But the photo by Dino Dalle Carbonare of Speedhunters is a very nice one as well: Continue reading
As you can see the Tsukuba Carina is a much more low budget drifter than the Fuji Speedway Carina: less bodyparts, no airdam, bend hood, single wiper, missing headlight and the Fuji Speedway Carina has way less stickers. Personally I like the Tsukuba Carina more eventhough it looks less pretty: it is more beaten up which makes it more charming IMO. On the other hand the Fuji Speedway Carina drifts a much smoother line…
