With a few days locked into the Osaka region after Attack 2019 Tsukuba, we started to formulate a list of must-sees in the surrounding areas. To be honest, for some strange reason Global Auto slipped my mind and it wasn’t until a kind lady at Trial reminded us about the yard that we remembered. A quick input into Google and we found out we were only around 20-minutes away. The GPS was locked in and we set sail (ha, R33 jokes).
After a swift driveby in our rental, we realised that Global Auto is a very small yard on an even smaller street. With no parking nearby, we found our closest 7-11, parked up and grabbed our cameras.
As we walked around the corner, we were greeted by an incredible lineup of R34 GT-R Skylines, fronting the car yard.
We made our way down the side road to the entrance and meandered in, welcomed by salesmen on the yard. It was apparent we were there purely to take in the incredible sites, so we were left to be.
R32s, R33s, R34s, R35s — you name it and they had them in abundance. For some reason, I felt as though they had more R34s than anything else in the yard. Which, is odd because back home they’re the rarest chassis.
After looking through several windows, it was apparent the majority of vehicles on this yard were not factory. They were either lightly tickled or heavily modified. Perfect.
This white drag-spec R34 GT-R was a favourite among the bunch. A true flashback to early 2000s drag racing and late night Wangan runs.
In the yards workshop lay another R34 GT-R getting a brake upgrade…
And, in front of the workshop lay one of the most beautiful RX-7s I have ever seen, featuring FEED Fujita Engineering decals all over and gorgeous Advan wheels.
The only other non-GT-R on the yard was this beautiful red NSX in manual. A rose among a sea of grey, silver and white thorns.
I honestly don’t think I have ever seen something so awe-inspiring in all of my life. The sheer quality of every single vehicle on the yard was incredible. They were all stand alone immaculately-presented examples that alone, would steal a show. I seriously had the urge to ask how much for a few of the R33s on the yard, but that time will come eventually. Anyway, this was just meant to be a quick post on our 15-minute visit to Global Auto. I hope you enjoyed!
