Enhancing The Eighties: N-Style’s Carina

Next Chapter

come and go, but regardless of subject the special ones always to make a return. It’s to do with the fact that I in Tokyo, but depending on the neighbourhood in  déjà vu can be a common occurrence. Eighties has been making its way back our lives in a variety of ways and you need to take a quick through Shibuya or Harajuku to see how true this is in Japan. always  looking to history to back ideas and reinterpret with a modern twist. is probably the best way to explain Nagahama-san at N-Style has done another one of his personal cars – time an unsuspecting  family f rom a golden era of Japanese car 

Larry and I shot a bunch of on our visit to the body shop in but there was no way I was going to leave grabbing at least a few pictures of drift-spec AA63 Toyota This is a car that with a few touches not only exemplifies N-Style is all about, but why Japanese from the ’80s continue to our minds.

At the front end Nagahama’s Carina very low thanks to a set of custom TRD coilovers wound down to absolute limit. The   (stretched) tyres’ fit with the is perfect, but that’s not surprising that the integrated flared are a custom N-Style modification entirely out of metal. Those 14-inch Racing wheels are 9J wide, and in 185/55R14 Bridgestone RE-01s ample grip for Nagahama he’s throwing the car sideways corners at his favourite tracks.

even more stretch on the SSR Mk1s fitted to the rear. measure 14x10J with a -28 and run the same sized tyres – of a lesser quality and grip The rear bumper removal is something that initially due to an on-track impact, but Nagahama has the look and incorporated the exposed panel into the custom two-tone paint scheme.

The little bucktooth spoiler up equips the angular front end a little more presence, but once you pop the bonnet up that the element of surprise hits.

Providing the power is an AE101-sourced 4A-GE that Nagahama has into the Carina’s engine Aside for the addition of a Freedom a row of tuned-length trumpets for the quad bodies and a large oil cooler, the mill remains largely It might not impress with output numbers, but what the lacks in power it certainly up for with reliability.

A bolt-in cage serves to provide protection, which is a good since the N-Style crew are out drifting at Nikko, and the dip on the outside of the corner has been known to the odd roll over. A quick in the cabin reveals a large Meter tacho with shift light, and a double-DIN system – just what needs to help guide the way to touge at night.

So there you have it – in my eyes the fusion of drift car roughness and If you like this sort of of an ’80s car, then I you’re going to like the I have coming up next this Gunma-based shop. tuned for more!
