Those of you who used to read Speedhunters back in 2008, will remember Mike Garrett would occasionally shoot the popular Car Sightings stories in Japan. His old Car Sightings posts are the pure essence of Speedhunting in many ways: you arm yourself with a camera, head in to a city/town and shoot any interesting cars that happen to drive past.
Now I've never done this in Japan, but I thought I'd try my hand at bit of local Car Sighting during a recent extended vacation in Nelson, New Zealand. Of any place I frequent in the world, I find it's this little town of 40,000 on the South Island of NZ that seems to contain an disproportionate amount of modified and vintage JDM machinery. I'm told this is the case all across NZ, which must make it the ultimate location for JDM cars outside of Japan itself! More investigation will be necessary in the future :>
The above image is a result of a recent Nelson NZ, Car Sighting session… Hmmm, I think I need to develop more stealth speed hunting techniques as the owner of this R32 didn't seem to like me shooting his machine too much LOL!
