The Initial D cafe (which is actually called ‘Racing Cafe D’z Garage’) is in Shibukawa, Gunma, right next to Mt. Haruna (The real Mt. Akina). I took these photos on the cafe’s launch day earlier this year. The car park was literally overflowing with everything from Initial D replica AE86s and RX7s to high-tune time attack machines. Visitors came from all over Japan to celebrate the launch of the event and meet fellow fans of the legendary series.
Things are a little calmer at the cafe these days, but it’s still a great place to see some fantastic cars.
So following up on the Starlet Evo i went for a quick look at the used cars to see what’s out there for the Starlet buyer this Christmas, and i came across the cleanest KP61 I’ve seen all year. 1983 Toyota Starlet DX, and still has the 1.3L 4K engine.
