Daikoku Futo… Take 2

So good we had to come back. Daikoku as i said in the last post has to be a highlight of any car enthusiast trip to Japan and now over for my Honeymoon i had to make sure i could fit another stop off at this famous carpark. This trip just like the first included a stop off at Mooneyes - Yokohama  for some hamburgers before the trip across the bridge to the meet spot. unlike the first time we did not take hours to get there and we did not get there too early. this time we seemed to have arrived right at the peak. again a huge range of car's, in this post im focusing on some of my favorites and highlight from this lot would have to be the rare R32 GTR 4 door.

Kidsheart

KIDSHEART!!! Another one of my other favourite place we visited in Nagoya was of course Kidsheart. After meeting my idol Tsuyoshi Tezuka at a Full Lock drift day at Calder Park, I had wanted go to Kidsheart to see his car in person for over 10 years.  Having owned a 1JZ Cressida and now the Kidsheart/HKS JZX81 Yamaha edition this was like the holy place for all things X Chassis related. It was a bit of a walk from the nearest train station; maybe 30-45min walk (mind you it would have been a lot quicker if we knew what side of the road to be on), and the main road that Kidsheart is on is separated by an Express way so you can only cross it every couple k’s. We didn’t know this until we were half way there on the wrong side of the freeway unable to cross! This Expressway…
