1973 TA22 Toyota Celica 1600 ST. Imported initial with ST and GT (5 Speeds, limited slip diff, better spec) trims, these stylish cars have always maintained a loyal following. Awareness is helped by their rally pedigree, good build quality and that pretty design. A fair number of original UK cars survive and those values have been steadily increasing upwards. #toyota #toyotacelica #jdm #japfest #classiccars #oldskoolcars #retrocar
1979 Saab 99 GL. The 99 was the first all new Saab since the late forties when it was launched in 1967. In typical Saab fashion it was developed over its 20 year production run, which included notable highlights such as using Triumph engine blocks, including 4 different body styles and the charismatic image enhancing Turbo. A typically safe, comfortable and nice car to drive, a solid one makes an ideal starter classic. #saab #saab99 #classiccars #oldskoolcars #retrocar #sweden #reallyloudcars
1972 Mazda RX2 coupe. Second in the rotary engined model line up, slotting in between the RX3 and the bigger RX4. This example is a re-registered Belgian example and available as a coupe and saloon, both sporting those neat tail lights. Mazda utilised several rotary engines in their cars, while offering combustion versions alongside them which made for a large but fascinating line up. The RX2 has a short UK run, barely lasting 2 years. #mazda #mazdarx2 #rotaryengine #jdm #santapod #classiccars #oldskoolcars #retrocars #reallyloudcars
1973 Renault 16 TS. A sporting derivative of Renaults ultra practical 16. It’s soft but grippy ride with good performance helped Renault become the biggest importer of cars in the late 60’s and early 70’s. There’s a strong argument to suggest Renault struggled to better the concept hence its long production run. #renault #renault16 #festivaloftheunexceptional #classiccar #retrocars #oldskoolcars #reallyloudcars

1987 T150 Toyota Carina II GL. The fourth generation Carina was sold as a saloon and hatchback, but is essentially a rebadged Corona. It was the first Carina to offer FWD, and sold reasonably well here thanks mostly to the excellent build quality, equipment and refinement. They were also nice cars to drive, sharing some handling traits with the sporting Celica. #toyota #toyotacarina #toyotacorona #jdm #carspotting #oldskoolcars #retrocar #reallyloudcars
1963 Fiat Nuova 500 D. Fiat are long time importer of cars into the UK, but a more organised distribution strategy started in 1953. The D versions used the more powerful 499cc engines but still best suited for town use. Not many original UK cars left these days, so you’re more likely to come across LHD imports. #fiat #fiat500 #fiatnuova500 #bicesterheritage #picnic #classiccars #oldskoolcars #retrocar #reallyloudcars
30 years ago my dad first got the integra. 30 years and 200,000 plus miles later I’m now driving it. Well I’ve been driving it for awhile already. Also you’ll never see a one owner integra anymore😎🏎 #RespectYourElders #OGRaceCar #quintintegra #oldskoolcars #g1teg #integra #vtec_showoff #OneOwner #oldskoolhonda_ #tegdistrict #jdm #oem #linglingdriven #drivecalifornia #integrafordays #acura #honda #weircanyonacura #anaheim #acurafamily #acuraintegra #acuracrewnation
Bmw E34 M5 (1989-1995) . If you’re a person that likes to keep a low profile and drive a discreet performance car, then the Bmw E34 M5 is one of those few cars that are well built and are a true muscle car. The Bmw E34 M5 was the last of the line for the six-cylinder M5's. Connoisseurs of the brand will argue that the E34 is the best of these amazing super-saloon range. The M5 started out with the E28 M5 and both cars were powered by engines based on the same straight-six seen in the iconic Bmw M1 from the late 1970's. In the M5, this famous engine made 315hp from the 3.5lt unit and 266lb ft of torque, enabling the M5 to get from 0-60mph in 6.3sec. When pitched against the then supercar Ferarri Testarossa from 1990, the BMW M5 handled better, and was faster on the majority of public roads. The M5 seemed pretty much perfect, it was practical, fast and comfortable but BMW improved it in 1992 by giving it more power. They upgraded it to a 3.8lt unit with an upgraded engine management system that added an extra 20hp. Power now was 335hp and in 1994, the final flourish came in May when Bmw gave the M5 a six-speed gearbox. The Bmw E34 M5 is as much fun to drive as many a sports car, and devours distances for fun. .. 📷 @carsandshows . #somedayclassics #bmw #e34m5 #m5 #m3 #e9csi #e9 #e28m5 #m5e34 #bmwclassic #bavaria #bmwclub #e34owners #classicbmw #m5 #bmwgram #bmwnation #eurocar #germancar #ultimateklasse #bmwmotorsport #bmwm5 #godschariot #mpower #mpower_official #carporn #classicbmw #oldskoolcars
1991 Honda Beat. One of a handful of Kei car-sized sports cars released in Japan during the early 90’s. it was not an official import but many made their way via ‘grey markets’ or more recently private imports. Typically high revving, Honda managed to extract 63bhp from the 3 cylindered 656cc engine to provide an utterly unique experience. I’d really like to have a go in one! #honda #hondabeat #keicar #jdm #japfest #oldskoolcars #retrocars #classiccars #reallyloudcars

1973 Ford Capri 1600 XL. Trim level and engine size is mostly irrelevant as this has been packing Rover/Buick V8 heat for a while now. This custom look was a phase that had been made popular in the States. The alloy wheels, bespoke trim and embellishments were a ‘70s and 80’s period modification and cars like the Capri were being subjected to all sorts of DIY facelifts. This car, however, is a perfect example of what could be done with a good budget and some vision. #ford #fordcapri #customcar #santapod #retrocar #oldskoolcars #classiccar #reallyloudcars

A bit of oldskool retro tonight with my personal favourite Ford Escort of all the Mk4 in a typically late 90s early 00s guise. Seen here sporting a Sierra cossie whaletail, Illusion front bumper and what looks like Mk1 Focus RS alloys. I absolutely love this 💙 Bring back the oldskool🙋🏼‍♀️ #oldskoolford #oldskoolcars #maxpower #fastcar #lowered #carscene #carlife #essex #supercars #cosworth #cossie #carporn #dreamcar #garage #retroford #escortcosworth #xr3i #escortxr3i #fordescort #rsturbo #retrocars #classiccars #focusrs #sparco #love #fordsofinstagram #whoreyourford #fordmania #detailing #dtm
1989 N13 Nissan Sunny, 1985 S12 Nissan Silvia Turbo and 1979 810 Datsun 180B. Shoutout for @epic_specialz and his epic selection of cars. Each Nissan has its very own character, and he’s managed to make three signature cars with his vision and talent. Watch out for them during the show season! #nissan #datsun #epic_specialz #nissansunny #nissansilvia #nissans12 #datsun180b #bosozoku #jdm #retrocar #oldskoolcars #reallyloudcars
1970 Rover P6 2000TC. Successful and well liked in its time, it boasted an advanced chassis and engine set up. Despite appearances, Rover did develop the car over its lifetime so it wore its years well. Seems inconceivable that Rover as a brand no longer produce cars today, especially of this calibre. This is a very late MK1 TC. #rover #britishleyland #roverp6 #rover2000tc #carspotting #classiccars #oldskoolcars #retrocar #reallyloudcars

1971 510 and 1981 910 Datsun Bluebirds. 10 years separate these two cars, but share the same engine block. The 910 drives far more smoothly and benefits from improved soundproofing and ride refinement. The 510 is mine, one of 8/9 known UK cars. The SSS coupe belonged to @martinthunderbird Here they are at the Retro Show at Santa Pod way back in 2011 - the last time I took the car to a show. It won’t take much to get back on the road but it really needs a ground up restoration... #datsun #nissan #datsunbluebird #nissanbluebird #datsun510 #datsun910 #jdm #classiccars #retrocar #oldskoolcars #reallyloudcars #retrocarshow #santapodraceway
1975 B1 Volkswagen Passat L. Giugiaro restyled this Audi 80 based car for VW, which heralded the start of the shift away from their air-cooled products. The L spec was only available with this 1297cc engine, just as well as the 54bhp would have struggled with the extra weight of options. 1.3 Golfs didn’t arrive until the late 70’s so there was a logic to this model. #volkswagen #volkswagenpassat #retrorides #classiccars #vw #passat #passatb1 #retrocar #oldskoolcars #reallyloudcars

1975 Mazda 1000. Fairly long lived baby car from Mazda, the first ones were introduced in 1968 and continued to be imported for 10 years. This example, when photographed still sported its 985cc engine but the owner was keen to install a Vauxhall engine in it to liven up the driving experience. #mazda #mazda1000 #jdm #oldskoolcars #retrocar #classiccars #reallyloudcars
1992 Citroen BX 16 TXI. Clever product planning by Citroen meant that these cars were available with a petrol and diesel engines ranging from 1.4 to 1.9 litres. Enormously popular across Europe, and an earlier adopter of plastic body panels. The TXI models were late run models available just in 1992/93 with injected engines, catalytic converters and the usual high line driver comforts. #citroen #citroenbx #oldskoolcars #retrocars #classiccars #reallyloudcars

1992 Honda Civic GL. This car always causes a sensation, kitted out as miniature FWD low rider with the expected sound system. The paintwork and originality of the execution has to be admired. Seen here at Japfest Donington. #honda #hondacivic #jdm #japfest #oldskoolcars #lowrider #retrocar #reallyloudcars
1969 Ford Escort 1.3 Super. A sales success in the UK from the start, the Super trim level can be recognised by its rectangle headlamps and some interior upgrades. RHD UK assembled MK 1 Escorts were also exported to Japan. Most of the MK1’s seen on British shores were built here, which along with its rally pedigree explains its popularity. #ford #fordescort #classiccars #oldskoolcars #retrocar #reallyloudcars
