We recently ran the Hakone Skyline with a Nissan PCG10 Skyline GT, Toyota AE86 Trueno, Honda S800M Coupe, and a Nissan R35 GT-R. Each run around the Fuji Five Lakes is peppered with postcard views of the mirror-surfaced lakes, Fuji-san in the distance, and, with luck, the equally mountainous roads to Moose Hills hamburger for lunch, all before sprinting back to Tokyo.

Yesterday, we featured a bright yellow Brit living in the US and today we're going across the pond to its country of origin to feature a more understated Japanese import. However, this Toyota MR2 is no less worthy and seems to be very original in fact, sporting less than 46k miles on the clock.

Before the 600hp monster that is the Nissan GT-R NISMO, the R32, the Hakosuka, even before Nissan and Prince merged, came the Prince Skyline in 1957. It sported a lowly 1.5L 60hp engine and looked to all the world like a slimmed-down General Motors knock-off.

When I was twenty-four I bought my first motorcycle: a 1972 Honda CB750. This bike did two things for me. It completely sold me on the quality and absolute value of a Honda motorcycle; they are absolutely bulletproof, beautiful, and reliable. Secondly, it hooked me on riding motorcycles for life.

Ten Classic Cars You Need to Import Now!

By Yoav Gilad / 8 Aug 2014 / 18 Comments Read More

Lately, we've been feeling left out. There are many wonderful cars that much of the world has gotten to enjoy and yet for one reason or another were never shipped to the USA.

It's a shame the Toyota Celica is no longer in production–especially with variations like this 1992 All-Trac. It has all-wheel drive and a turbocharged, two-liter four-cylinder engine. The few aftermarket parts it has are low-key, reversible and/or can be replaced with the included original parts.
