I was at the workshop yesterday doing some stuff to the Mark II. Shino was there too, repairing the front end of her 86, which has taken a couple of hits recently.
At one point, Shino took a break from working on her AE86 and walked over with a big can of Mountain Dew for me from the vending machine outside.
I couldn’t help but notice the can of peach drink she had bought for herself.9 Comments

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Autosalon week meant visiting a lot of different places around Tokyo. Since the majority of the people I was with had never been to Tokyo, I thought the Toyota Megaweb and Toyota History Garage in Odaiba might be a good place to visit.
Nice little display eh? A mint red Levin they used to display beside the FT-86 a couple of months ago, Toyohisa Matsuda’s old competition car and Takumi’s toufu-ten replica, complete with tofu shop!
I think there was a mint Hakosuka off to the left as well. The Toyota History Garage is always fun.14 Comments
I can think of at least a couple of people I know who will think this is the most awesome thing ever.
