Thankfully you don’t have to try and scour the memory banks for visions of your own any longer as the AACForums have kindly posted the Hardies Heroes (Top 10 Qualifier Shootout) from the 1984 series. It’s far more exciting to watch than the modern fodder, that’s for sure. It has other such wonders as Moffatt driving an RX7 also. Awesome stuff. I suggest you have a gander.
Of course, then this whole incident happened, which was a bit of a drama… (more…)
So, a padre of mine, one Richard (who has been mentioned many times previous on here) recently went to the title mentioned event and took some snaps with his camrangle device. The results are very pleasant. As you can imagine there were more moderns than classics but the classics that did attend are well worth a gander so I figured I would throw a few up here onto RC and you can scope the rest of the attendees via his flickr account.

Can’t help but think: one drive around the block here in NZ and that front spoiler’s gonna break off…
Looks like a lot of time and effort went into reproducing the Silhouette kit, and the price tag reflects that. The rims aren’t exactly right and it may not be running a LZ20B under the bonnet, but there’s more than enough cool bits attached to the FJ20 to make it sound like it could be pretty fun!
Yours for a cool 2.5 million yen.
