    Shin Yoshikawa

    Most of us have heard of Shin Yoshikawa or at least have seen his famous cutaway drawings while searching for images of our favourite JNC.

    Toyota fans will also be aware of his book "Toyota 2000GT: The complete history of Japan´s first supercar". It is an expensive book but I think I will bite the bullet and order a copy.

    It was while doing a little research on this book that I discovered that Mr. Yoshikawa also runs a car restoration shop called Studio Time Capsule. The quality of workmanship that goes on here is incredible!

    For anybody that finds this interesting I would definitely recommend checking out his site. It is not only Toyota 2000GT restorations or solely Japanese cars but, well, I will not ruin it for you!
    Here is the link -

    I am not connected with Mr. Yoshikawa or Kai Art International but I thought that this was interesting enough to share with you guys.

    Re: Shin Yoshikawa

    Thank you for posting this information!

    A few years ago I purchased his Toyota 2000GT book and it is worth every penny!

    It is amazing how Yoshikawa-san traced each and every frame number and details where
    each and every car was shipped and sold originally!

    I read the website and it is amazing and a little bit sad as he mentions that due to his age (63 at the time
    of posting) that he will not be taking on additional restoration projects.
