May 1966, the 2000GT pictured came in 3rd FUJI GRAND PRIX/ Driver Hosoya-san.

(I have picture in old book at home now that I think about it)
1966 was the first year the 2000GT raced.

Is it my imagination or has someone tried to do a sharknose on that pink rusty racecar above?

Anyone understand japanese ?


Peter, what magazine and what issue is that article from. I know I've seen it once before, but I haven't been able to remember when or where.

Without going into elaborate detail, the current owner knows the complete racing history of the car, and chooses to keep the vehicle in its’ current condition of rot. Par for the course. I have seen at least 30 cars in the last year in various conditions of “just sitting”. The owners do not want to part with them, could care less about keeping the vehicles out of the elements, and have no plans for restoration. It is cultural behavior. Even in the current stagnant economy of Japan, belts are tightened, breath held, a stubborn face is put on sales of vehicles, and posted prices hold. I have seen the same Isuzu ZZR (PF60), and 1983 “Iron Mask” Skyline for sale for 4+ years, with no bartering allowed, or even entertained on price!


Thanks for the quick review of this. Your comments confirm what I have run across also. It's a shame that the people with these rare cars don't at least take a little more effort to preserve them and keep them from deteriorating even further.

i wish the LFA kept the driving lights from the endurance race concepts. those driving lights made the link to the 2000gt much more visual.

i wonder how much $$$ it would cost to restore that red/pink GT. that would be the project of a lifetime!

toyotageek,

I think, I think, I remember seeing an article about this 2000GT in a Nostalgic Hero magazine.... don't remember the vol. no. I saw the magazine for sale in Yahoo Japan. Seeing the magazine reminded me about this thread when it first started. Apart from that.....

Cheers
Ian

Nostalgic Hero issue 36 1993-4 April. Has a Toyota Sports 800 nose shot on cover. I actually bought the copy from that ebay trader (Satoshi, nice guy!) because of that particular 2000 GT article.

:tu: Thank you!
I'll have to check my storage boxes. I bought a whole bunch of NH from Book-Off a number of years ago ($2 each) - might be a chance I actually have that issue. :roll:
