Nice post Mike. Looks like there where some amazing cars there.
(Cool to see the 910 and the C140 Laurel).

The Laurel C130 is on my top ten list.
(I think Dual Factory has one like it also).
Great pictures Dino.

This, like the four door R32 is true greatness.

Mike, very cool post. Once you are in Japan try and find some 1/24 metal mufflers for an even more detailed look.
(Fujimi makes them I believe).
I think Tamiya makes one with an engine.

Now if we can just get some of the "vibe" of this Q50 in some new sedans.
So they really can be, four door sports cars.

As a 1/24 kit builder I understand this, I have more kits then I will ever be able to build before I die.

Caught the news from a friend in the business last night, we all hoped it was not true.
Rest in peace Paul and Roger.

The 326 Power 161 Aristo is very cool.
Thanks for covering the event Dino. (Can't believe 161's are already becoming old school).

Nice to see Bippu style on the rise.
No UCF 10 Toyota's ? Old school VIP's are more affordable.

Back in the day (1978), $2.00 equaled three Hot wheels cars. (Sale tax).
Still keep them in an old blue tackle box. (Some Matchbox too.)
Great post Mike.

Great work on the Z Jun. I saw your car at JCCS this year, however this was my first time at JCCS.
I was overwhelmed at the amount of Nihon greatness. (If I had known the Z was yours I would have taken more photos of it).
(I have three hundred pics from the show but I think I did not take enough).
Now I know more about the Z.
Great write up.

In 2002 I started building plastic models again. (I stopped building in 1985 or so).
I was in a local hobby shop one day and found an old Fujimi AE86 kit, I built the kit black and white from memoryand with plates that had no numbers. I think Option and Inital D had some thing to do with this and in 2002 I had no copies of either in my collection of car stuff.
(Back then all we had was Sport Compact Car and Super Street).
