Rocky Auto by night / November, 2010
Heavy rain can’t get a Kyusha Otaku down! I have seen numerous photos of this particular C10 all over a few Japanese blogs I follow so naturally it was a pleasure to finally see it in the flesh. The huge amount of photos of it hammering along the track says it gets used and the massive bubble flares, wing and soft tires agree.
Walking around an amazing lot of cars is both exciting and sketchy. I wouldn’t be to happy with a few unknowns checking out my own lot at night, so we didn’t hang around long. When I go back I’ll definitely be there during the day so I can have a proper perv. Lots of love for Rocky Auto!
Despite me being soaked from it raining all day, and despite it being closed, having no money to buy anything and battling the local traffic to get there… Rocky Auto KILLS! I have never seen so many amazing classic Japanese cars in one place. I would have been over the moon to own any of them. Like a pack of dodgy gaijin we peaked around the lot in the dark and I shot a few frames at some stupidly long shutter speed.
If you are into zeds or classic skylines at all then I need not introduce Rocky Auto. For the rest of you, well, I think it’s worth a look for yourself.
Some of you may recognise this Hako Suka, and the purple C110 in the foreground…

Solid line up of the new and nostalgic
