Wow. That is all.
I say the same to myself regularly too...
A quiet Monday off, we decided to visit Bridge Motors in Saitama - under the shinkansen tracks and operated by a very pleasant Hashimoto-san ('Bridge Motors' - geddit?) - our target was to look at a nice GT-B and a few others along the way... Except for the headlight grilles, the same GT look as my old A:
Some of the nicest Fairlady I've seen in a while:
Wearing just enough rubber to take me back to 1979:
Hashimoto-san's personal collection included his first and second cars - the Corona & Corolla respectively:
Original issue, single character and single number plated Corona, a super rare combination. Though a reissued plate, the fonting is sublety different from regular issue, notably the ふ:
The GT-B we came to investigate:
Red over off-white, on native black steels:
In tremendous condition, it has a tremendous price. Notably as the recent years have seen a significant increase in the prices of domestic classic cars. The GT-B in particularly, having started the whole Skyline / GT-A / GT-B / GT-R naming convention, Porsche-eating, and race winning line:
Though not a twin-cam, its straight six, triple Weber equipped engine loves to rev out, and from its twin pipes has the same glorious ripping silk wail to be expected. Straight cut, non-synchro first, with fifth next to fourth, the gear-box really showing its race origins:
On clear roads we came back into Tokyo in time to pick the wife up from work. A glorious day. Neko.
