For obvious reasons any doubts turn into embarrassment when they see him

If Watanabe's are rare, then they must be Konig Rewinds! Banging head
Actually, it's the other way around... It used to be the case that Japanese wheels were stupidly difficult to obtain and a set of Wats cost a small fortune. Hence we bought the "cheaper" Konig Rewinds. But the number of Wats on the market today outnumber the Rewinds. And finally, the wheels in question are Black Racing and even rarer than Wats!

are they of you're silver coupe? If I remember corectly they cam on that car when it was imported.

Maybe I'm wrong about this, but I have to doubt that the car has been within 100 miles of Ebisu circuit though.

There's an SW20 around here somewhere that has similar paint/graphics. It's always driving the opposite direction when I see it so I haven't got a photo, but I'm wondering if it's owned by the same guy and he just has a style that he applies to all his cars.

For those who missed it, the Sileighty Mania Podcast interviewed Hiroshi Takahashi (a.k.a. Kaicho), also known as RunningFree86. They had to divide the interview up into two episodes. It has a total length of 3 hours but believe me: it's time well spent! Thumbs up!

Season 2 Episode 11 (part 1):

I was amazed to learn the story of Mr. K. earning some side money in the early 1990s by scamming wannabe drifters with team-stickers. Big Grin Big Grin
