"Restore popular Japanese cars with help from one-of- a-kind book"
Some of the first cars to be imported from Japan were sports cars, and they have been popular with collectors for years. Many of these cars were raced when they were new, and have a dedicated fan base among those who drove them 30 - 40 years ago. Ad- ditionally, these same cars were popular platforms for enthusiasts in Japan and other export markets as well, so many aftermarket high-performance parts were made for them.
Building a retro-flavored vintage Japanese performance car can be rewarding on many levels, and as these cars continue to gain popularity, they’ll gain value as well. This book shines on many fronts. Certainly, it is the first of its kind on this particular subject, but it also gives credence to both restoration and tasteful customization. Performance upgrades are shared, as are the various racing histories of the most popular and successful models. Information on Japan-exclusive models is also included where they influenced the cars that came to America, or where their success in racing impacted the engineering of American models.
Author Ben Hsu is the editor of Japanese Nostalgic Car, and is a recognized authority and expert on them. His dedication and exposure to classic Japanese cars runs deep, and his in-depth reviews of the cars and the companies that manufactured them will give readers a new appreciation and understanding of them.
The 8.5 x 11” softcover book (ISBN: 978-1-934709-88-7) features 144 pages packed with 269 color & b/w photos. This new release may be ordered for $24.95 plus $6.95 shipping and handling by calling CarTech at 1-800-551-4754 or by visiting http://www.cartechbooks.com/classic-japanese-performance-cars.html."
