Need your fix of JDM Books and Videos?

Let’s say you’ve trekked all the way to Japan, have found your way to the Super Autobacs in Tokyo Bay, and after spending a good few hours in their wondrously well stocked book and video shop, you stumble to the checkout with armfuls of obscure, only-in-Japan books and DVDs, and triumphantly dump it all on the counter with a contented sigh.

The bespectacled gentleman behind the counter genially asks you where you are from, and when you say you’re from Australia, he hands you a card…”We have an English-language webstore and we ship overseas, too”.

Well, knock me over with a feather.

As far as I know, Lindbergh is the bookstore that runs the book/dvd section of the Autobacs. And while they don’t have everything at their store catalogued on the website, there is still enough to do some seriously irreparable damage to your credit card.

Here’s some choice picks:

    Holy cow, last time we were at Lindbergh in Jan 2007 we talked to the same guy. When we said we were from the US, he mentioned some Australians had come by too!

    Haha….yeah in Jan 07 there was a busload of Australians who were doing a “JDM Tour”. They spent a couple of days at the Tokyo Autosalon, they visited a few tuners and shops, and at night the whole bus would be found at Daikoku Futo.

    I ran into these Aussies at Crystal Auto, which is a tuner shop in Chiba. A bus pulls up outside, the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by Australian voices, lots of credit cards are waved and about 30mins later the bus leaves and Crystal Auto is picked clean 🙂

    Looks like they might have made a pit stop at the Autobacs!
