JDM GT-Apex Trueno in the Alps

Hi guys! So, now it's time to blog, rant, appreciate and tell about the probably only street legal JDM Trueno in Switzerland. Long story long, here it comes: shamelessly copied and updated from aeu86.org So, one would probably first want to know, why the 86? Since it's such a great little car, there...
