Is there many Gt Turbos/Glanzas on the road in Japan? Ireland was flooded with them for about 10 years but they are getting very scarce now (wherever they went?)

No, they are all gone in Japan as well.
I probably see more AE86 than turbocharged Starlets... :|

...yes, especially in Tokyo.
According to the latest news, last time when it snows this much in Tokyo was 45 years ago.
There are still many dangerous icy road near my neighborhood that I must be REALLY careful when I drive.... :!:

Since I still have lots of MINI DISCS, I purchased this used Clarion 2 DIN CD/MD player.
This is 2011 model, near new condition for approx. $25.00....I have no complain.

YES! Awesome new radio, Haru. I love uncommon audio equipment like that. Very cool. Whenever I fix my SC400 (sorry Soarer to you lol) i'm trading it for a VW Jetta with a single DIN radio, so I gotta look for something randy to put in it.

Neck Pillow installed on my RECARO SR-3.
Approx. $6.00 each from local store that made HUGE difference while driving.
Very comfortable that I am going to pick up another pair for my Altezza as well.
I think it looks like genuine RECARO optional peace......

Found this set at auction site that seller was stating as NGK Plug Wires.
Item arrived today & what a surprise that it was actually Blue Point Silicone Power Plug Wire By ULTRA that is even better! I cannot wait to install them with my APEXi spark plugs.

Today's special.

I was cleaning my room and found these promotional items from McDonald Japan.
(1) Big Mac & (1) Filet-O-Fish straps that are made out of hard rubber.

Image

Time to get busy....all you need is (1) Nissan Lug Nut (M12x1.25), JB Kwik and hobby knife.

Image[/url]

Cut a hole on the bottom of a Big Mac (just little bigger than the diameter of a lug nut) place lug nut in the center & apply JB Weld......DONE!!

wow...first time seeing message in my language here...!

Reason why I made this in BigMac is because of the thickness...Filet-O-Fish is too thin to fit the lug nut....LOL
If there are more demands, (that I highly doubt it...), I might start making more... ;)

If you enjoy making the shift knobs, I'd love to see some more.
