Honda Civic GL

First generation Honda Civic. Can you imagine the first Civic is a rear engine little hatch? It start off as a 1200cc "mini" and how "big" its dimensions have grown today.

Nissan Fairlady 240ZG

A legend begins for the Z car. Which Japanese sports car is able to continue to exist even till today and for almost 40 years??? Toyota 2000GT died after 1 generation though you might say Supra is the current 2000GT but seems like no green light for production any more. Honda just decided to hold their NSX project due to downturn of economy but NSX history is just 20 years. Mitsubishi stop making GTO too. Same goes for the RX-7. RX-8 is not really a family of RX-7. Although Nissan makes boring cars today, they made great sports machine. Think Skyline which debuts since 1957.

Nissan Laurel 2000SGX

Datsun / Nissan Laurel of 1972. Believe that this car slot just below Cedric / Gloria range. Tomica is limited series produced in small numbers.

Toyota Corolla Sprinter SL

Toyota Corolla Sprinter SL KE25. The pioneer of Corolla Levin. This Tomica is made in limited number of 3000 pcs.

Nissan Gloria

This is one of the nicest car that Nissan/Datsun ever made. It belongs to the Gloria / Cedric family range, 4th generation Gloria 2 door Coupe made from 1971 to 1975.

Toyota Celica 1600GT

This is the first generation of Celica. It displaces only 1600cc but it's considered a fast car in its hey days. I remember seeing many of these Celicas running on Singapore road but they are almost non-existence today.
