It’s time to go a bit old-school at a drift event at Nikko Circuit run by some guys from a Netz Toyota dealership in Saitama.
Showa-era cars only!

Since I didn’t get home until fairly early in the morning from the night before, just like last year (link) and the year before (link part one and part two), I arrived at the 2011 JCCA show at Odaiba at what might be called a leisurely hour.

It seems a lot of you really seemed to like the Yaruki Mate! Cresta drifter from the other day, so I dug this one out of the archives of a drift event at Fuji Speedway from a few years ago.
A nice GX71 with widened steelies, bolt-on overfenders, Hakosuka tail and fake oil cooler finished off in Pocari Sweat blue!
Maniacs might notice that this one is the zenki model with the SOHC 1G-E and seperate quad headlights, rather than the integrated quads seen on the kouki model in the previous post.

So, the last several posts were all about girl drifters. Let’s move onto the most manly thing we can find: a four-door Toyota kyusha.

I noticed something odd while walking near my house a little while ago. It was a bit hard to see from the street, but the shape of the rear fender was unmistakable.
After a quick check to see that nobody was at home, I snuck up the driveway for a look.

I’m mainly putting this in its own post because as an Australian and a former rotary owner, I find this car absolutely hilarious.
It’s a Mazda Roadpacer AP, which is Mazda Japan’s version of one of the most Australian cars there is, the Holden HJ Premier.
The funny thing is, if you tried putting a rotary in a Holden in Australia, you’d probably receive horrible death threats at best.

I suppose you want an excuse? Well, I had a very big Friday night which led into a very big Saturday night which finally ended at a club at 6:00AM on the Sunday morning of the show. The club is actually only about fifteen minutes by train from the Odaiba parking lot, but I didn’t have my equipment on me, and I also really needed some sleep and a change of clothes. If it’s any consolation, I had a great time, thanks.
Enjoy the pics I did actually take.
