We all know that Keiichi Tsuchiya loves his kouki Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86 drift car, but did you know he owned a couple of other legendary cars before that? For instance this Nissan Skyline 2000GT GC10?
In this Best Motoring video Keiichi Tsuchiya explains what cars he used privately to tear up the touges: a Nissan Skyline 2000GT GC10, a Nissan Sunny 1200 GX5 B110, a Toyota Starlet S KP61 and a Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-V AE86.
There wasn’t that many 70s cars around at the Japanse Autosport Festival. Probably got to do with the fact that anything sporty from the 70s nowadays is tucked away in a museum.
This Mitsubishi Celeste also looked like it belonged in a museum. Period correct number on the license plate and it looked almost as stunning as the Mitsubishi Cordia! And of course this one is based on the Galant A70 series, so it is rear wheel drive!
I found this very good amateur video of the 1984 Fuji Gran Championship at Fuji International Speedway where a bunch of Sunny B110s, Sunny B310s, Starlet KP61s and first generations Honda Civics battled the TSA class 250km race. The competition is fierce and you can enjoy an 8 minutes spectacle of bumps, spins and drifts:
BTW: at 3:37 an unidentified car is going through the corner on 3 wheels. Anyone got an idea what car it is?
As B-San already commented: pictures of the Nostalgic 2 days already were available in the past days. I searched on Minkara and picked out the nicest I could find:
Nostalgic 2 days: cleanest DR30 ever!
Yes, a genuine pre facelift Nissan Skyline RS Turbo DR30 and it is the cleanest example I’ve seen so far!
To prove that the Australians did something right with their own Skylines:
Nostalgic 2 days: Fairlady 240Z with 30RB
The Japanese love the 30RB for its increased displacement, so pairing this engine with a set of carbs only sounds like a sane thing when you drop it into a Fairlady 240Z.
Before I bought my Canon EOS 350D (also called Canon Rebel in the US) I used to shoot all my photos with my trusty Minolta X300. I’m still sorry I sold the camera shortly after I bought the EOS… I probably thought I would eventually get used to the EOS and actually put effort in shooting pictures with that camera. After 4 years I’m still not used to the EOS and still do the click-clack-lets-do-another-ten-and-choose-the-right-one like I did with my first digicam. Damn, I miss analogue photography! 🙁
Lately I become more and more interested in photography with the good old analogue cams and I was quite happy to see this beautifully shot Nissan Sunny GX B110 at beeoneoneoh’s blog:
Nissan Sunny B110 GX 5 speed
Now that’s an image you can hardly shoot with a digital camera!
Nissan Sunny B110 GX 5 speed
Very beautiful shot of the rear of the Sunny. Almost impossible with the sharp and crispy lenses of the new digicams!
