Finally for some non-Ghosn news. The Meiji Jingu Classic Car Festival was held in Tokyo over the weekend. This year’s theme was “Japanese Vintage Year 1989,” and though the event was hosted by Toyota, it invited other Japanese automakers to bring out their representative cars for that year.
As you can see from the lead photo, the choices of cars were diverse in role. Subaru chose to represent 1989 with its everyman Legacy Wagon. Toyota came with its finest luxury sedan of the time, the Celsior (aka Lexus LS400). Nissan brought its seminal performance showcase, the R32 Skyline GT-R. Honda led with its flagship supercar, the NSX, and Mazda presented the sporty NA Roadster.
How times have changed.
