The cars are cool but Big Mike is even cooler. I’m honored to call him a friend and have all the respect for what he has accomplished. He’s a true enthusiast, a technician of the first order and, most importantly, one of the good guys. I’m going to have to do some serious work to my TE27 before I can let him see it…
Great piece… Japenese Steel is getting a lot of attention these days. Its good to see there are guys like BigMike to do right by these machines. Built a Corralla GT for a buddy when we were in high school. Only Japanese car in our clan. Most hated it until they drove it. What a blast. Great job on the car BigMike and Thank you to those who build the ride that inspires Petrolicious to showcase this great vehicles.
Loved this piece! I raced a 1974 TE27 SR5 back when it was new. It later became a rallye car for a couple seasons. While never developed to the extent of Big Mike’s cars, it helped me cut my teeth in motorsport. I would live to have one again today, but as Mike said, very rare. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
