カーランド AE86 Special Shop

When I was told about a workshop specialized in only AE86 I was a little surprised. But the it just took me about 10 minutes to find some information in internet to know where to go. Carland is not to far from home, maybe just about 10 kilometers so I decided to have a walk.

When I finally arrived there this photo was the first I see with my eyes, so astonished. You don’t just to see so many AE86 all them together. Don’t even imagine that even here in Japan these old Corolla’s and Trueno’s are all around the streets. Old cars are very difficult to spot in the cities.

Most of the AE86 in the shop are dressed as usual, panda style body paint and Watanabe’s. Those cars have special buyers, they aren’t cheap, but they are clean and restored until the last corner. So you can imagine that any boy looking for a project is not looking for that kind of AE86.

Reaching almost the 3 millions of Yen this Red Sprinter Trueno had only 15.000km in its clock. Probably very difficult to find another Sprinter with such a low mileage at any place.

This levin was probably my favorite. Volk TE37′s and coupe version.

They were shooting some cars for some advertising and as cars are ready to be sold.  So I had the opportunity to heard them running.

The workshop is so small, but the level of experience and the attention to the detail in this AE86 specialist is so high.

This corner is like the waiting room. Some cars still waiting for a new life, new paint and of course a super update to be able to use it as daily driven everyday if you want.

_MG_1711 copia

As said before the panda style body paint and the Watanabe’s are the common. I am sure many Initial D fans around their 30′s are so glad driving them.

That special Home Van make me laugh, this shop is in love with the AE86 that anything related to the Levin is welcome here.

Select ‘N Low Meeting ~ 23 March

Hey guys

My friend Hector and I went to the Bonaire Mall in Aldaia, to assist the SelectN Low meeting.

It was Sunday and the day was very good, sunny and good weather, so after washing the little Honda, we went to the meeting.

When we arrived there was a lot of people already and the cars meant the day was promising, so I took the camera and started taking pictures of the cars we had.

Here are located many old Citroën some are awaiting for its new life and owner and some others are just used as a car donor and other make that place look so special like a Citroën scrapyard in Kansai.

When I said masterpiece I was referring to the car we have on this picture on top of the text. The rotary Citroën. The M35 was a limited production of prototypes that Citroën gave to some VIP customers to test the rotary engine created by Citroën.
