Tetsuya Hibino’s character on D1 videos might be one of a rude, slang-talking tough guy, but in reality he’s anything but hard to talk to. That is, if you can understand his rapidfire “ittara” Nagoya accent and can keep up with his dictionary-like knowlege of the Toyota AE86 and how to drift it.
Let me read your mind: “I wish my garage looked like that.”
Just in case it wasn’t obvious enough in the first picture, this is the famous “jumping car” from 2004 Ebisu D1 Grand Prix that came second to Nomuken’s Blitz works R34 GT-t after a couple of re-runs.
The duct tape reads “TRD five speed”, “TRD five speed, third gear broken” and “TRD five speed maybe”.
