More Vintage Wheel Ads: Techno, Yayoi, Etc.

techno phantom 2
We posted some vintage Japanese wheel ads a while back. Here’s some more spotted on Riverside. Many have a similar theme: modified OG J-ride, night time shot, the wheel in question and a glimpse of asphalt lit dramatically. The message is clear, get out there and race, foo! This Techno Phantom-shod RX-7 just beckons.

The notorious Yayois, or “sakuras” as we Westerners like to call them. We know this ad is old, but let’s get some lower profile tires on those babies! Click on the images to open a full-size pic.

Here’s a butaketsu Laurel rockin’ a set of gold blossoms. Look at that face-meltingly cool Team Yayoi gear. I wonder how much that stuff is worth nowadays.

techno shadow 02
Who doesn’t love Shadows? I’d love that 5-lug version for my Crown. Interestingly, the company name is Devil Japan rather than Techno.

techno meshpasco bilbo 5
Here’s the even rarer Mesh version, along with another Pasco-Fame Bilbo ad we missed last time. Once again: S130 Fairlady Z, nighttime, ready to hit the wangan.

racing forg
It’s not a typo – forged racing wheels from RacingForg and a pair of Sunnys wearing the team livery.

suzuka carol
And last but not least, a 2+2 Fairlady Z shod with totally 80s style Suzuka Carols.
