I love the fact that in this day and age thanks to social media, wherever I go, I usually happen to "know" someone local to the area. This was no different - and that is why I found myself invited to this monthly car nerd event, held in a shopping center parking lot near Okinawa's "American Village" a shopping center/tourist attraction, checking out the local car community (lots of Americans!) and their rides. Of course, this blog being all about R33 GT-Rs I will save the best for last but to say the least, I was super impressed with what I saw.
Let's start with some Toyotas - was going to check them out:
Still, I think I could be persuaded to buy one as my next family car. The luggage capacity of an SUV, four wheel drive, but stick shift and turbocharged RB!
And yes there was much more. Sorry to all those who I did not get - maybe next time?
In my next post, I will take the liberty of talking more about those 3 R33 GT-Rs at the top of the page. They all have different stories but all were impressive in their own ways.
Some of you may be wondering? What about other GT-Rs? Well, I did not see a single R32 GT-R or R35 GT-R, at least at the meet. And yeah there were a couple of BNR34 as well, but strangely everyone was ignoring them. Seriously I am not making this up.
Finally - if you happen to be in Okinawa this year, here is the schedule.
