Following last week’s all-Roadster edition of #FeatureThis it’s back to a slightly more diverse selection of machines from the around the planet this Thursday. This week we have a strong selection of cars from Japan in particular, mixed with some other cool entries from across the globe.
Here they are!
(Above) Let’s begin with one of the less commonly seen generations of the Fairlady Z – the Z31. This choice example on RS Watanbes belongs to Masaya Yamamoto from Tottori-ken in Japan.
A fantastic shot of Ichizo Kubo’s R32 GT-2 prowling the the historic back streets of Tokyo. A timeless machine in a timeless setting.
Rob Andrew has owned this ST205 Celica GT-FOUR for seven years now and the car has become a potent track weapon as well a daily driver. Besides being a regular at track days, Rob has also taken the car to the dragstrip where it turned in a best ET of 12.808 seconds.
Meanwhile over on Instagram, @jeaves6 can be found modeling the new extra extra large Speedhunters decal on the window of his BMW E36.
We always love seeing homebuilt projects like this E30 BMW owned by Stuart Russell. With the help of his father, Russell swapped in a mildly built 306 cubic inch small block Ford V8 which makes for great fun considering the car weighs less than 2,500 lbs.
There’s something cool about this late night gas station shot submitted by Sunny Side Racing from Chiba, Japan. The title that was attached to the photo – “Tough Grip Night”.
We don’t see a whole lot of SAABs come through the #FeatureThis inbox, so it was pleasing to see Patrick Zielinski’s 2000 Viggen pop up. Even with little aftermarket support, Patrick’s car is making 455 horsewpower to the wheels through a variety of mostly self-fabricated modifications.
Instagram user @colinbolin caught this image of his friend’s Volvo 850 T5R grocery getter.
Kazuhiro Odachi from Hokkaido, Japan is the owner of this fresh looking JZX100 Mark II. It’s an interesting mix of street drift style with just a hint of USDM.
Another cool gas station shot from Japan, this one showing Kyotani-san’s two-door AE86 Trueno from Kobe. The car is light-tuned with things like a high compression 4AGE, a carbon hood, and of course a set of Volk TE37Vs.
A pair of fine English classics photographed by Instagram user @gasolinephoto.
A bumper-less Datsun 280Z on the streets of Olsztyn, Poland, as captured by Adrian Banach.
A panda MR2? Why not? This AW11 owned by Korey Hamm from Virgina has also been swapped with a 2ZZ-GE motor and six-speed transaxle for maximum high revving fun.
Got meat? @silvergt’s Mustang sure does.
The Evo might be the most well known of Mitsubishi’s performance cars, but we are quite liking this tuned CJ4A Mirage submitted by Kibo-san from Japan.
Following up the Mirage is another less common front wheel drive car from Japan. This Nissan Pulsar Pulsar Serie VZ-R・Ｎ1 ver.Ⅱ is owned by Gooseke-san and he can be found enjoying the little Nissan around the famous corners of Suzuka Circuit.
Yuichiro Morikawa from Hokkaido sent us this image of his V36 Skyline and a Toyota Prius, both wearing Gramlights 57 Extreme wheels and supporting a local shop called Total Car Office “BREAK”.
Chris from Ontario, Canada has owned this first generation RX-7 since 2005. It now has a street-ported 13B and a bunch of other modifications like a set of 16″ BBS RS wheels.
A pretty mental looking Peugeot build under way at the hands of @pug106.
Finally, in a fitting closing shot we have Kotaro Matsumoto’s 180SX from Japan parked seaside at sunset.
Until next time!

Wow, I should have checked earlier. Psyched that my AW11 made it! :D
To Corey K, here's my public photobucket
T5r is sure about the badest arsest "grocery getter" i can think of. Find Lammers' and Rydell's BTCC car on the web...
There is something so right about a Z31 on Watanabe wheels. I have to convince myself weekly not to buy one. MOAR PICS of that 2ZZ-powered AW11 please!!
those 4-eyed celicas never really got a whole lot of love, but they are incredibly unique looking cars. Love the GT-four! nice build
the Z31, black R32 from Tokyo and the AW11 MR2 are the best on this page. I like the old moderns, truly timeless.
You guys make stickers. You want us to buy them. Yeah cool we get it! So enough of putting shots of them in every post i.e. that E36 shot (which is boring as f%&k)
