Toyota AE86 – Advan Carrot Racing – Keiichi Tsuchiya – Fuji Freshman Series 1984

Another car driven by Keiichi Tsuchiya: the Advan Carrot Racing AE86 with which the Drift King boosted his carreer by taking 6 wins in a row during the 1984 season of the Fuji Freshman Race Series.

I do not have enough pictures to skin the suit and helmet worn by Tsuchiya-san in 1984 or the Advan tires actually used on this car. So I included recent suits, helmet and tires (Advan A050) – all scratch-made.

P.S. In this very entertaining video you can have a glimpse of the real car driven under the rain by the master:

Toyota AE86 drift – Tec-Art’s – Keiichi Tsuchiya

On the web these days every car is ‘iconic’ and every driver is a ‘legend’. When I started this kind of blog I promised myself to stay away from those words – even when they do mean something real for a particular car and for a particular driver.

So here is the Toyota Trueno of Tsuchiya-san a.k.a. the Drift King, as seen from time to time in the automotive Best Motoring / Hot Version show.

If you are not familiar with the Japanese car culture, especially drift and touge, it’s time to surf the web and fill that gap ^^.

This is a simple skin, although there was some work on the bonnet texture, and on the suit and helmet.

Toyota AE86 drift – Gruiii Power – Pandaz Ridaz

Here are tow skins based on designs by Sha_do for two French drifting teams about 10 years ago. I skinned them for the fun of it because my drifting skills are close to 0… I hope some drifters will enjoy them.
