I know that I'm way out of touch on the work you guys have done with serial numbers, but as you asked...

In the early days here, before faking Tokais became worthwhile, there seemed to be evidence ...

I have the THR10X (heavy metal version in drab green) and it's great to have at home in a tiny room.

You just know that some pervert on this site is going to order one and then hack off the neck to see if the neck and body markings match.

Well, the LS400 is bought, and being made ready for the road trip. It's so much car for so little cash:

It's a barge, for sure, but it's super quiet and that ...

Yes, while 'geek' has gained a little coolness in recent years (thanks partly to The Big Bang Theory, etc), 'anorak' remains more of a put-down.

I've forgotten exactly what word he said, but Peter ...

Very cool.

Wow.... I've never seen that one before.

Me neither. Apparently its from the mid/late 60s and has an 800cc engine, that's all I know.

So Toyota's equivalent of the Honda S800 coupe ...

I worked up to the NSX, via a Fiat X1/9, then the supercharged MR2 shown above and then the NSX. It's a great car, perhaps not as quick as the R33 Skyline I used to have, but more of an occasion, and ...

Another Japanese car addict signing in! That '70s Celica is such a lovely car. I was in Tokyo last month and hoped to see some old cars, but they are rarer there than here (it seems).

That photo must be from the Kanamara Matsui festival. An explanation here: http://www.fest300.com/festivals/kanamara-matsuri

Curiously, it's not at all sexual.

Neck repairs can be done really well by a skilled luthier. But...

solid or veneer top?

It looks like a solid top but I'm not 100% sure.
In the right light you can see the wood grain of the pickup route continue up to the top surface. There is a very thin layer ...

Actually, there was a Japan-only dealer-specific Gibson V with MS b/w paint job. I've only ever seen it in the original Japanese advert (in a Mooks book) and if I find one, I'll buy it first and tell ...
