Last month, you got to see the first edition of Cars and Coffee on the parking lot of AutoPlanet Nagoya, some kind of huge mall dedicated to car-buying. Unfortunatly, that day, the weather was not willing to cooperate, and it never stopped raining. This time though, the sun is shinning and nothing stopped people from bringing their cars on this nice sunday morning. The variety of vehicles present was, once again, impressive.

A nice 355 Berlinetta built for the Japanese market. The owner was extremely nice and revved the shit out of his engine for us, back firing the hell out of his aftermarket exhaust. Of course, our conversation focused on engine removal and expensive maintenance. Notice the JDM small differences, requiring wider wheel wells and front side blinkers.

If having GT86 badges on Scion FRS is a thing in the US, the opposite is true in Japan. This guy went as far as getting an FRS airbag to put in his GT86. He simply exchanged his GT86 airbag with a friend’s in Hawaii.

Miata people, praise the almost unicorn that is the M2 1001 Roadster! 300 units ever produced only. Certainly the most desirable Miata along with the Coupe.

So I also heard you guys like wagons? Something else you never got! A Lancer Evolution Wagon. Manual 276hp...etc etc. Pretty cool

Mitsubishi GTO, the japanese name for the 3000GT. No idea if it’s a VR4 or not, Tavarish would most certainly know that...

The 2cv in desperate need of a new paint is back too! Owned by a distributor for Solaris in Japan.

My new “WTF is this, I have to own one” car of the day: Suzuki Fronte Coupé, designed by Giugiaro and making an impressive 37hp!. These little things are unfortunatly extremely rare and quite expensive. Smaller than an Austin Mini and so damn cool!

No idea if it was as mean under the hood as it was outside, but this Peugeot 206 looked rather... muscular.

I hope you enjoyed my pictures, next stop for me will be the Tokyo Motorshow where Mazda will reveal its “new RX7 looking sports car”. Rotary or no rotary... That is the question!
