    I've only brushed shoulders with one of these many years ago. At that time I didn't have the appreciation for it as I do today. Listen to this 6 come to life, God those Mikuni's sound wonderful. :drool

    I used to see them occasionally in the late 60's when I was stationed in Japan. Beautiful cars.

    I used to marvel at the cinematography on Top Gear, but Petrolicious really does a fantastic job of capturing both the style of the car and the emotion of it and it's owners. Beautifully done little videos......

    Agreed Dave. Petrolicious really does a wonderful job. I'm not a video shooter, but I really appreciate their high quality production values. Plus they show the emotion of the owners & cars. They are nothing like your basic youtube video shot on a phone or gopro.

    Those things were selling last year for over a million bucks. Not sure what they are doing now. Probably the only Japanese car to go seven figures, at least that I can think of.

    I just saw a Datsun B210 go for five hundred bucks. Does that count?
