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.24 Comments
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.18 Comments
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.
Someone sent me an email a little while ago asking for a website where he could buy an old Japanese car.

Something slightly different for today’s first pic, a Japan four-door with a chokkan muffler, which translates into English literally as “straight pipe”.13 Comments
