Dino, I love these posts of yours. It's what I love about Japan and it's car culture. As much as I love world wide coverage, the Japan posts are always my favorite and the ones that I reread.

I voted for the Cressida simply because I love it. It's something that I could one day have. The F1 LM however is just amazing and it always has been. There is no bad choice.

I have this thing for L series engines so I'd keep with it if you can. L28s sound so good and are just proper sounding with the right exhaust. Plus my love of Wangan Midnight doesn't hurt.

Love this kind of post. I love Japanese cars more than I'd like to admit, but it's the culture that produced these cars that can be just as interesting.

I'm just a little jealous.

Daikoku was on my must visit list but I will be carless and in Osaka for most of my next visit so I will have to wait but I always love seeing posts about it and the other PAs! Thanks to you, Dino and the rest of the SH crew for bringing so much awesome coverage. I'm also kind of in love with the ITR behind the red 86.

Love it. I'm going to be so bummed when the FF mini theme is over. While I normally tend to cars that are still street legal, the thoroughness of his build is simply impressive. Well done. Also, I love the 6ULs.

The Mini (og) Cooper S is clearly the mold breaker here. That being acknowledged, I have a huge soft spot for the EK9 CTR and the Clio Williams. Such amazing little cars.

As odd as it sounds to say, I'm a Spoon/ Type One lover who has never owned a Honda. Not that I don't like them, quite the opposite really. I would take a CRX, EF/EG/EK or s2000 any day actually but I've tended to stick to awd vehicles. All of that being said, I've always admired the level of perfection that Spoon Sports takes with there cars and products. Nothing is cobbled together and everything has a purpose. I think it's how they make a car work as a complete unit rather than collection of parts. I can't wait for more from the FF theme.

Such a fantastic post! I have a love for the Kanjo that runs deep. I'm with you on the mystery of it. I just want to see more, read more, know more history etc... . I love this stuff and the fact that Speedhunters makes it possible for us across the Earth to experience this unique world.

Even though my Forester is powered by a forced induction engine there is something I've always loved about na engines. Especially high strung, small displacement 4 cylnders.

It's great to see you hold on to the R for all these years. I think the stock mirrors could look good and it's nice to change things up once in while. I am always a fan of debadged cars as well.

This is possibly my favorite time of year for Speedhunters. I love all the Japan coverage. It's awesome to see so many of you guys over there to give Dino a hand in the coverage. After this I get excited for 32day etc and 7's meeting. Keep up the great work and have fun. Also, update Auto Otaku!

Such a fantastic car with a ton of great history, personal and in general. It's one thing to love looking at cars and taking pictures of them, but the greatest joy in the world (for me at least) is to go for a drive. Late night solo runs to nowhere are the best relaxation money can buy. I'm glad to see you are keeping the Z and I look forward to seeing it's rebirth here.

I just want to get out and drive more. I don't mean for work, I mean just drive for the sake of driving. Trips to the Blue Ridge Parkway, late night blasts through the mountains, even just road trips for no reason at all.

Seriously good stuff. I think I look forward to your posts more than anything else Dino. Great work and I look forward to all the great coverage from Japan in 2013.
