This is a typical day in Tokyo where I was fortunate enough to have my camera on me!
Losing the convenience of a garage was a condition of moving here, but I work with what I have. Our car is parked in a quasi-vending machine, so I can’t work on it there.
Note turntable at garage entrance.
So the next best option is to park on a quiet bridge in front of our apartment and have at it. Today I endured the harassment of pigeons as I performed a tire rotation.
I then decided to shakedown the car as I ran some errands downtown. Here are some poorly photographed shots of what you will see in downtown Tokyo on a lazy Sunday.
F40 LM(?) taken after leaving the grocery store. It sounded like it had straight-cut gears. Sorry for the crap picture, I caught it at the last minute.
Exactly four minutes later:
The Conti GTC’s are not uncommon, but the British Racing Green color was particularly eye-catching. I think I snapped this as I was shifting from 1st to 2nd and steering with my knees.
Stopped for a quick pic from the middle of the road in front of….
…the greatest 24 hour sushi joint in the world. You always leave because you have run out of money, not because you have had your fill.
Headed back towards home, I run across a freshly washed Maybach 62.
And then this little gem. 1 of 60 ever made. It’s a Crown GT-Z aka supercharged, 5-speed taxi.
Shakedown and grocery run complete, I arrive home:
That fella fishing in the second picture didn’t seem to be having any luck. If he is fishing for keeps, he is a braver man than I.
There is a saying:
“An oyster from Tokyo bay won’t kill you….it’ll take at least two.“
Hope you enjoy!
