Alexi, a good friend of mine runs the excellent Nori Yaro – Japan Car Life Blog. An expat Australian in Japan, Alexi’s living the life drifting and immersing himself in grassroots car culture over there. Last weekend, he spotted this nostalgic ride at a local drift meet at Nikko Circuit. More details and pictures here.
C’mon Ben, your wagon’s cryin’ out for this treatment!! Check out Nori Yaro too, it’s the next best thing to living there.
When my Cressida sleeps at night that it was it dreams of!!!
One question though…….that is in Japan? It has Illinois plates. USDM plate trend in Japan?
I think the USA plates are part of the whole “bosozoku” hey look at me thang, although I don’t think it’s a specific trend or anything.
Thats the crazy GX71, Chaser … or is it a Cresta. I know its not a Mark II.
To bad I have not seen any manual Cressidas around here. Watanabes or Speed Stars ?
Click on the link for more pics and details. Alexi says it’s a Chaser Avante.
Gawd, that makes my wagon look lame! 🙂 If more people buy JNC, then maybe I can afford some wheels like that! 😉
