Nissan Cedrics vs Toyota LiteAce in Daitokai, The Big City

It’s odd to see a mixed-marque car chase in the heavily sponsored world of  Japanese cop shows. Almost as odd as using a Toyota LiteAce as a getaway vehicle when you’re being pursued by a fleet of Nissan Cedrics. But there … Continue reading

Friday Video: Cedric 230 vs 330 in The Big City

Going solely by old Japanese cop shows, you’d think three out of every five cars was a Nissan Cedric. It’s the Chevy Caprice Classic of Nihon car chases! In this clip from Daitokai (The Big City), there are, surprisingly, no … Continue reading

Nissan Cedrics Speed Through Daitokai, The Big City

You may recognize some of the faces here, but this is not Seibu Keisatsu. Rather, it’s Daitokai (“The Big City”), a Japanese television series that preceded the car chase-filled antics of Tokyo’s western district. Tetsuya Watari (Sgt. Daimon in Seibu) … Continue reading
