Saturday morning, the JyuRoku crew headed up to Lake Okutama in the western end of Tokyo-Prefecture to visit a parking area.
We arrived shortly after the sun had risen to work on some film for our upcoming documentary. I don’t want to spoil anything…So ill just show you a few of the cars that were also hanging out at the PA.
A group of S2000’s seemed to be having a little get-together. After I took this photo, 3-4 more showed up. All very cleanly(minimally) modified. One married couple arrived each driving their own AP1’s….lucky…
This Civic Type-R was also up enjoying the weather. This model is actually a pretty rare sight, I have only seen 2(on the road) so far in my 2 year stint in Japan.
There was a mess of bikes hanging around but none of them caught my eye like this new Ducati Diavel.
The owner looked like the sort that would call his Yakuza goons and beat me to a pulp, but I snapped some photo’s anyway. The things I do for you people….
A few minutes later this old school Nissan Fairlady/Datsun 240z pulled in.
Its great seeing this on the road and actually being driven. Most of time in Japan they are just restored show queens.
Being that the trip to this Rest Area requires 20mins of white-knuckle twisties, I’m sure this owner was driving the car how it was meant to be driven.
This early 60’s Toyopet Corona Deluxe showed up soon after the Fairlady left. I felt like I was at a Cars and Coffee meeting for a second.
But before I could even attempt to ask any questions or get a look at the interior, the female owner came running out of the bathroom, jumped in the car and left.
Before all the automotive eye candy pulled in we actually did get a lot of filming done so stay tuned for our big film and more photo’s from Saturday’s shenanigans.
