Let's see your JDM Classics!

Good Afternoon everyone! 

 

Just wanted to get things started here. Let's see your JDM classics! Or if you have a modern JDM classics, let's see them as well. 

 

Here are mine: 

 

1972 Datsun 240Z, 2nd owner, restomodded Ratsun. 

 

1987 Mazda RX7 TII, LS/T56 swapped, and a host of other supporting mods. 2nd owner. 

 

2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe 6mt, original owner. Version 3.2 which is now track prepped as well as show car ready. Used to promote PTSD Awareness with Veterans and First Responders.

Thank you for getting the ball rolling!  I love your collection, a perfect blend of old and new Japanese Coupes!  How many people give you grief for the LS swap?

I get grief now and then. I get a lot more people that are shocked when the hood is opened!

That's totally worth the grief. Love it.

Look out for my 1992 Toyota Century blasting around the country! I've driven it coast to coast, entered it in TWO Concours d'Lemons (a dubious honor, I realize) and tried to share it with as many people as possible. If you've never seen one of these, it's the ultimate Yakuza transport! Right hand drive, front and rear air conditioning units, 4.0 liter Hemi V8, and so much more. Bonneville Salt Flats!Bonneville Salt Flats!Monterey Concours d'Lemons class winner!Monterey Concours d'Lemons class winner!Road trip nonsense...somewhereRoad trip nonsense...somewhereMaybe Utah?Maybe Utah?I wrote an article you can see here about it: https://www.hagerty.com/media/archived/1992-toyota-century-cross-country-cruiser/

Thanks @jsclark76.. I bought it almost 18 years ago to drive. I even used to Autocross it in A Street Prepared. That pic was taken at a track exhibition last year a few hours away. I’m into Medicare years and don’t have time for garage queens. I do my best to maintain myself....maybe even pamper it. But it’s driven.

Here's my fourth child, the one that loves me back.  I've had a Z since '86, a 260 and three 240s.  A couple of cross country trips, a summer in the Tetons, Yellowstone and in Glacier NPs and for 6 years, the "I owe, I owe, so off to work I go" daily routine.  A few day trips to the North GA mountains and Cherohala Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, a lot of great memories behind the wheel of a Z.

FD RX7s are awesome! Thank you for sharing!

Thank you both. Honestly,  while my car IS Japanese it’s also LHD.  So maybe II shouldn’t have posted since it’s not JDM.

Nonsense! All mine are LHD as well.

Those are sick. Thanks for sharing! I hope to have one someday soon. Love the '93-95 RX7. But my dream is a R34 Skyline when they become available in the States. I'll have a tough time convincing my wife to let me, though. 😅

When the wife is onboard, that is when things get really serious!

I only had one toy until my wife and I figure out how to make our money work for us for financial freedom. Now she is even turned to being a car nut.
