D-Type. Thats the car i keep seeing around here. I knew it was an old Jag of some sorts but i didnt know which it was. Makes sense now theres a classic car restorer a few miles up the road. Must be one of his.

The Toyota 2000GT. Debuted in 1965 at the Tokyo Motor Show, produced for 1968~1969. A true timeless classic, it follows the lines of the Jaguar XK-E.

The Toyota 2000GT was a high-performance grand tourer that fully realized the skills of its designers and engineers through its long-nosed, balanced styling and six-cylinder, twin-cam engine. It garnered three world records and 13 international records, creating numerous legends as a high-performance car, rivaling world standards.

Built upon a sturdy X-backbone frame (the S2000 wasn't the first car to use this technology), the 2000GT's 4-wheel independent suspension had double-wishbones front and back. The engine, a 1988cc DOHC 6-cylinder with 3 Solex sidedraft carburetors, produced 112 kW (150 hp) at 6,600 rpm. This could propel the car to a top speed of over 220km/h (137 mph). The 2000GT also possessed exceptional durability and safety. Other features included a cross-ratio 5-speed transmission, limited slip differential, and Japan's first 4-wheel disc brakes with vacuum booster.

Rare pics of one of the two (yes, only two) Toyota 2000GT convertibles ever made. This conversion was done for the Bond movie "You only live twice", and was driven by Japanese secret agent Aki.

Hemi Darts are hella sweet

I want to go down the block and ask the guy a few questions about the model Dart he has and i want to buy it. Too bad my parents wouldnt let me touch it.

It would be a sweet project car and he might lower the price too if i asked nicely (or brought Sarah along).

I wish I still had my first car. 1969 Dodge Charger RT, 425 HEMI. That thing was a beast, and hard to keep going in a strait line.
