    Celeste @ RCA
    Mar 10, 2009


    Hi, JNC Fans….


    I’ve been following JNC since the birth of this great site. ( Just ask Kev, The Hakosuka Man ! )

    I see growth….

    You guys even have a JNC Motor Show in Japan…FANTASTIC.




    What I’m about to share is a car which I have not seen at JNC ….

    It’s a Mitsubishi Galant Celeste….that’s how it’s called in Thailand.



    Instead of just showing off the car… you will ride with me , in this Celeste…….. to RCA………

    RCA is a street full of life at night ; sort of Ginza of Tokyo…or King Street of Sydney….or Sunset Blvd. of Los Angeles.

    But our tour would be on one early Sunday morning, the day that I took my Celeste for a morning exercise.


    So, let’s go…………

    First stop is at a joint called “ 808 “ ….any meaning ?.....I don’t know……

    Window deco is quite nice…using million of one inch square mirror………...........





    I have had this Celeste restored since 2004…..it still looks nice as I rarely use it …………........

    TOYS Store …….


    No siree, they are not selling toys here….rather a hangout for those with architecture in their vein……

    The place looks post-modern…..geometry……nice……….....







    The stair arrangement is very welcome ….with asymmetric style……all wooden……….......





    Highlight of this pic could be the wheels … by Tom’s….. it’s 15 x 7” with 195 x 60 x 15 at the front and 205 x 60 x 15 in the rear. White walls are the added-on items you could buy them in Bangkok…..

    No … it was too early for the shop to be opened….it’s Sunday so they are entitled to be late ……

    At the same parking spot….but on the other side………

    No,…..it’s not a night-hangout place…..rather a sporting goods store sit right in the middle of night entertainment…….

    I thought the window deco looked OK .....





    The light reflections give Celeste a metallic look….similar to the shop sign post……........

    Somewhere down Melrose street in Los Angeles ?

    Well, at least that’s what the shop-owner may wish us to think that way…………







    And here is another old friend.....John Dewar’s…………

    Too bad…I’ve been on the wagon for many moons already ……......
