PHOTOS OF THE YEAR 2009: Picked by the internet

December 24, 2009 10:31 pm Published by

Noriyaro has been up for over a year now, and has over 300 published posts. Since I didn’t really do anything for the anniversary, I thought now would be a good time.

These aren’t the pictures that I think are the “best”. Most of my favourites were turned into wallpapers, so have a look at that section if you haven’t already.

Nope, all I did was check the server logs, and looked for the images that were accessed the most amount of times, excluding things like banners, advertising and nagivation, of course.

So here they are, in order, the most downloaded photos of the past 365 days.

Not surprisingly, the most downloaded picture ever on Noriyaro is of Mitsumori-san’s Chaser. You want to see more of this car? I know you do. More to come on that.



Team Kassou Subashiri Goto-san’s AE86 missile. This car no longer exists.


Tezuka’s JZX81 D1 car. I’d like to point out here that Toyotas are the top three cars.


This was the first photo to surface on the internet of Daigo Saito’s Mustang from the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon, so I think it was linked around a lot. I’d also like to point out that the past three photos were taken either with cheap cameras or mobile phones.

So stop asking me what camera I use. It doesn’t matter. What matters is what’s in the photo.


This was at an MSC event at Bihoku Circuit. The car was fine, as I recall. Two other cars rolled over at the same event.


Kei truck drift at Odaiba D1.


Rauh Welt AE86 at Tsukuba.

Super-neat AE86 at the Tochigi Baka event.


Nomuken accepting the win at a snowy D1GP Round 2 at Ebisu.


Mayumi-chan’s slammed S13 at Nikko Queen.


5-series wheels on an FD. This car has since been painted.


Akai-san’s AE86.


86 people love this stuff, don’t they?


I don’t know why this one was so popular. My awesome offroading at Nikko Circuit.


NOB’s murdered-out Vertex Ridge 180SX.


Drift life at Tsukuba. I took this one coming off the track with my phone.


Takurou-san’s Masterpiece Knuckles.


Spare parts at Hibino’s Garage SunRise.

SunRise日比野 哲也さんのワークショップ。部品いっぱい!

The now-deserted main street drift corner at Nanko Minami, Osaka.


The car this sticker is attached to was one of the best RPS13s I’ve ever seen.


Team Magician not backing off for anything.


So, that’s what everyone is interested in seeing.

If you had to put it all together, it would be a picture of busted yet pretty Toyota slammed to the ground with good wheel fitment at massive angle, about to crash.

OK, I’ll get working on it.
