This, without a doubt is probably one of the grooviest looking RPS13s I’ve seen to date. I have had the pleasure of seeing this car in the flesh during my trip to Osaka last year. 99.9% of posts on this blog are shot by myself from my previous trips to Japan. However I couldn’t help putting these photos up shot by Mark Warhurst on his recent trip to the mother land.
He took quite a few detail shots which I regret doing last year. Here, you can see the amazing interior on Masayoshi-sans Onevia. In case you didn’t notice Nagano Koubou is a paint shop. The custom dash has been covered in fibreglass and painted in a custom marble effect using red film and black film to create the effect. Masayoshi-san was going for a 90’s look.
In the trunk are some spare skid wheels, Longchamp XR4s. Masayoshi-san definitely digs the lowdown シャコタン style and deep, dish wheels with plenty of pull.
Finally, a shot of the man in front of his personal creation. I really hope I get the pleasure of catching up with him during my next trip. Once again, thanks to Mark Warhurst for the shots.
