I LOVE DAIKOKU FUTO PA!!!! These posts are the ones I look forward to the most on Speedhunters. I love these so much. Thank you Dino for all of the fantastic content you have provided over the years.

You're right! How could I have missed that? Well my week is better now. Thanks shiftyXTI!
Indeed the widebody bits are aftermarket, hence hoping to see one at the D3 Group shop. But nope, just coups and sedans. Nit that there's anything wrong with those, I just like the wagon better :-P
@Wildcardfox Yeah I know there's been a wagon but just no beefed up widebody wagons were at the shop on the particular day Mr. Speedhunter was there. Actually, ever since it came out, the CTS Sportwagon has been probably one of my top 3 favorite wagons. And I am a certified wagon nut!
It saddens me that there isn't any CTS Sportwagons. Even if they aren't V wagons, they are still cool in my book!
I really hope they actually call this a Supra if it does make production. At least with a car of this caliper, in the USA anyway, we shouldn't have to worry about it being under the Scion name.

I would be very content with choosing a 1987 Buick Grand National as my one car.

@greenroadster @inspector_exacto Yeah it has love/hate looks indeed. For me, it's love. I can tell for you it's hate and thats okay. Once Buick releases the Regal GS Wagon, that will take the top spot for me. I love station wagons in general. More than I probably should.

I've been obsessing over the Cadillac CTS-V Sportwagon for a while now. 556HP supercharged Corvette V8, 6spd manual, and rear wheel drive in a station wagon! Any of you ever see "Hit and Run"?

What of that Buick Regal next to the 5spd Thunderbird? Buicks never get the attention they deserve... :-(

1976 C'était un rendez-vous. It may only be 20min, but it will forever be engrained in my memory.

I say it's about speed and handling. If it can get to triple digit speeds (in MPH) in the time it takes any other normal car to get to half that, and it's built to go around a corner at insane rates of speed while holding it's composure, then it's a supercar.

I really love the article and the subject matter, but... I'm a little disappointed with the desktop selection. I really wanted either that 2000GT or F40 on my desktop!

YES! The C1! Now I have to go play a Tokyo Xtreme Racer game...

Some wicked cars here. Not my style, but I still have mad respect for them and for the guys who built them.

I actually like the first 4 EVOS more than any of them that came after. The EVO IV especially.

I don't think I'll ever grow to like the headlights. Just like the lights on the Ferrari 458, I was never crazy about them. The rest of the car though... wow

I did a quick price conversion for one of those wheels that was 22,000yen. That comes to about $237 US!

I lean towards function over form. But I find that the form that takes shape from a car built for function is the best form of all. When form and function meet in the middle (or more towards function), that is when a truly amazing machine has been created and those are the builds I have the most respect for.

This is simply amazing! Makes any attempt I ever made at building a model look like shit.

@dhedhemit I thought so too when I saw that spoiler. I've never seen any other R34s like that
1 year, 9 months ago on Tas 2013: More From The Parking Lot
Way more captivating than any American parking lots! What about all of those cool cars that are just out of frame sitting next to most of the ones that you shot? This post could have been 3 times as big!
@hanablemoore @inspector_exacto You're right. Safety wouldn't be on our minds at all. Just speed. No matter what it takes.

I don't think I've ever seen more than 1 of these IS wagons. I love the automatic to manual swap!

Hey, isn't that 1889 Mercedes the one that was in Gran Turismo 3? or 4? I forget which one, but one of them had that. When you drove it, your guy wore a leather helmet and big goggles from the era.

Chances are the guys running the junkyard just didn't know what that engine is. They just think "oh, a Toyota engine? You can have it for $XXX.XX". X= very cheap!

I like the Japanese car scene so much better than the American. At least over there, it's not the same 10 muscle cars around every corner.

@S30z The funny thing is that my eyes went straight to that Grand Am thinking "that sure looks out of place" Normally I am on alert for cool and different cars, but in this picture the "normal" car got my attention lol

@Dshu @inspector_exacto YES! DRIFT! Of course! Before typing my post I looked through the car lists of Tokyo Xtreme Racer zero, 3, and Import Tuner Challenge on xbox (still tokyo xtreme racer but with a stupid name for some reason) but I completely forgot about the drift ones lol
