As if a slammed tateguro didn’t look suspicious enough, this one likes to hang around at the docks. What nefarious goods does it smuggle in that lengthy trunk? Just looking at this A30 Nissan Gloria makes you expect Sgt Daimon to … Continue reading
Many of you thought the 1977 Nissan AD-2 concept ungainly but at least one of its “Advanced Design” cues, the wraparound rear window, carried over to production. It first appeared on the 430 Cedric and Gloria twins, and then on the … Continue reading
Every couple of months our friends at Mooneyes holds an informal gathering near their HQ in Yokohama called the Mania Cruise. The great part about these shows is that you get to see oddball machines that tend to get crowded … Continue reading
A suspect attempts to slink away just as our heros from the Western Division arrive on the scene. Too late, he’s made. Nothing left to do but wheel that Cedric like it’s your ticket to salvation. Oh, an plow over … Continue reading
Last week we were surprised that we’d never featured a hakosuka in a Friday Video car chase. Even more surprising is the lack of S30s in Seibu Keisatsu pursuits. Although we’ve seen a couple here and there, you’d think there … Continue reading
It’s hard to believe, but for as long as JNC has been around we’ve only ever made one sticker. We need to rectify that situation stat, so the yotsuba above will soon be joining the red and white inkan. For … Continue reading
Nos2Days is a two-day event held by Geibunsha, publishers of the awesome Nostalgic Hero magazine. Cars on display can come from any number of places — individual owners, restoration shops, aftermarket tuners, specialty car dealers, and Nostalgic Hero covers, spanning … Continue reading
In what was probably one of the more bizarre episodes of Seibu Keisatsu, our favorite band of police heroes goes undercover at an amusement park. The goal is t catch some nefarious characters, one of which wears some sort of … Continue reading
Whether you prefer a relaxed ride, enjoy the extra roominess, or require three yakuza enforcers with you at all times, a nostalgic sedan can be a practical yet stylish choice. For example, everything about Mooneyes‘ S50 Toyota Crown — the … Continue reading
Nothing goes together like a funk bass and car chases. Seibu Keisatsu has been known to pit its various Nissan products against Detroit iron before, often to disastrous effect. This time, the Nissan Cedric 330 puts up an admirable off-road fight … Continue reading
Yusaku Matsuda, to be precise. Although not a rotary-powered model, it still exhibits all the nimble handling the brand is known for. Video below the fold.
Finally, an inter-marque rivalry between the two titans of Japanese auto manufacturing! As with last week, we are unsure which movie this chase comes from, but who cares? We’ve got a daring escape by a bank robber in a jacked … Continue reading
How do you stop a steamrollin’ Isuzu Elf with just a standard-issue unmarked Nissan Cedric? With aviator shades, driving and bullets!
Last week we saw how Norway does old school. What about their neighbors in Finland? They have a taste for originality as well, and here are some photos from their 10th Annual Japanese Car Meet.
In this short but action-packed chase from Seibu Keisatsu, a Bluebird 810 sedan goes head to head with a 330 Cedric. A flotilla of Nissan black-and-whites give chase, and a particularly brave yonmeri Skyline patrol car sets up a pick … Continue reading
It’s time once again for the Japan Treff from Norway, a classic Japanese gathering that does not boast a single tsurikawa or boso pipe in the field.
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
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
A black police-spec Cedric 230 on steelies sure looks like a mean machine. Too bad it, along with several other rarities, bites the dust in yet another car chase in Seibu Keisatsu. Video below the fold.
Just when we thought we’d seen it all, here’s an episode of Seibu Keistatsu in which a standard police issue Cedric 330 unmarked does battle with a Datsun Sunny Cab… and loses! Maybe the rare cab-over trucklet was cool enough … Continue reading
