I was at FSW recently to take care of a few matters – one the Skyline GTS-T you saw in a previous post and the other being the massive event being held that day – the 2010 JCCA Classic Car Fuji Jamboree.
Those in Nagoya throughout March can check out the Nissan Gallery where a motorsports event is planned in the lead up to the first round of the 2010 Super GT championship.
I’m not going to lie to you. The 2009 Tokyo Motor Show was a pretty big letdown punctuated by pockets of expectation and amazement.
This week we’re putting together information to make your trip to Japan all the more enjoyable… preferably based around cars of course! This time let’s look at a selection of car manufacturer’s museums. Read more
A heavily camouflaged Nissan Fuga (Infiniti M35/45 in North America) has been spotted testing in Arizona and promises to be one very stylish looking sedan once the wraps are taken off at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

My very good friend and sometime coworker Jeremy Booth was at Meihan Sports Land with me when we went and I had no idea but he was busy clicking off photos with his mobile phone the whole time we were out on the track. The photos aren’t the best quality by a long shot but there are a few in there which add another perspective to the events of the day. Read more
Long time readers may remember Jesse Streeter from our Industrial Strength Domestic article we ran back in July 2007. Well he’s back and the car is still around albeit in slightly more abused condition!
