Oh you know it’s that time again. Time to take a trip back to memory lane. When some of our readers think Nostalgic Wednesdays, they’re thinkin’ something from way back in the 90’s. We’re gonna take you there and to the 60’s with this week’s edition covering the infamous MoonEyes 1960 Toyota Crown! (Be sure to click on the Magazine pix so you can read it!)
In our continuing effort to get our readers more information on retro rides and rice on Nostalgic Wednesdays, a question was posed on our Facebook Page about what you’d like to see today. When somebody mentioned The Midnight Club, I’m not gonna lie, the first thought that popped in my head was that terrible video game.
My second thought brought my senses back, and I immediately realized that he meant The Mid Night Club, Japan’s notorious street racing gang. Pay attention, i’m only doing this once!
Welcome to another edition of Nostalgic Wednesdays!
If you’ve been keeping up with our Facebook page, I posed the question of what you guys would like to see in our Nostalgic Wednesdays posts, and Nolan Bjorn was the first one to give us some feedback and suggested the Mitsubishi Starion to which, I gladly obliged.
Welcome to another Nostalgic Wednesday! This feature car is one of my absolute favorites from Japan- the Mine’s R34 GT-R! This Nissan Skyline became famous almost overnight as clips of the car absolutely ripping ass on a Japanese track started to surface on car forum boards all over the world. If you’ve been hiding from the internet, here’s a refresher course:
If you’re like me, then you’ve been playing Gran Turismo ever since it first debuted on the Sony Playstation. I was introduced to a lot of cars I never even heard of. Cappuccino’s, FTO’s and even the coveted Pikes Peak Suzuki Escudo R were cars I learned a great deal about over a decade ago through the magic of video games. Yes, my eyes were open to all sorts of new JDM race cars as well. Among them, one particularly caught my eye, the very bright and colorful livery of the JACCS Honda Accord.
Hailing from the Golden Era of Japanese tuning, the Veilside Supra. Many of the readers out there might find this thing unattractive, too “Ricey”, and well…dated. As for the others like myself, we might have gotten one of our first ricer broners gazing at this beast.
Oh, and by the way…what the hell happened to “these” Supra drivers?
