As another perfect weather weekend in Southern California finishes off, I find myself thinking about Japan more and more. Looking through one of my terabyte hard drives full of photos, I spotted this JZX100 in my D1 Street Legal folder. I was lucky enough to see and hear this in person… it was awesome. Just remembering the incredible sound of the turbocharged 2JZGTE engine roaring at high rpm, with the hollow sounding 6 cylinder exhaust note bouncing against the legendary blue walls and pit garages of Ebisu South Course… it makes me feel the need to book a ticket to Japan asap.
So, what do you guys think about the orange wheels? I like them, minus the stickers. I know D1 cars are pretty much ALL stickered up, but for me, you just can't beat the clean look of a Kanagawa style street drifting car. I love clean 4-door Toyota drifting sedans like this. Maybe I should sell my AE86 in Japan and buy a JZX100 to see what it's like.
Which body style of JZX100 do you prefer? I prefer Chasers for sure, but it's just one opinion… I wonder if there's anyone out there who would rather have a Mark II or Cresta?
