Back in the late 1960's and early 1970's, when the first Japanese cars started coming to the U.S., no one thought to much of it. Except they were small, different, and probably under powered for the time.

Of course, when the 1973 gas embargo happened, everything changed. Suddenly, small cars, with smaller engines, were sought after by millions of Americans. My own mother traded in her Impala and bought a new Mazda RX3 Wagon. Just 3 years earlier, our neighbor across the street had bought a brand new 1970 Datsun 240z (in a silver color, though I would say that was more of a sports car purchase than out of necessity).

That was the foot in the door that the Japanese automakers needed, and suddenly they were almost everywhere. Especially the small pickups, like the Nissan D21s or the Toyota Hilux.

As time went by, most of these cars were traded in and ended up in junkyards. But today, things have changed, very much so.

The collector cars market has embraced the older, small, compact Japanese cars from Asia. Sure, most don't have comforts, like power steering, or air conditioning, but their body designs are timeless. And now, classic.

Toyota Corollas, Datsun 510's and 710s. Mazda RX3's. The '78 to '85 Mazda RX7s. Datsun 240 and 280Z cars. Now they are looked upon as cars folks remember them, they and want to own and upgrade them.

At the same time, the Japanese car companies continued development on new types of cars. Nissan created a new GT-R, based on a long history of Skylines from Japan. Now they had a super car on their hands.

Toyota started their TRD (Toyota Racing Development) programs. Honda's have their V-Tec engines. The world was exploding with reliable, but fast machines based on a long heritage of Japanese car models.

Now you can build model kits of a lot of these cars, from the classic older models to the latest Lexus LFA and Subaru BRZ.

Companies such as Tamiya, Hasegawa, Fujimi, and others, keep making new kits of our favorites. In the past, most of the kits were curbside models, but not anymore. Now you can get them with full engine bays and engines, extra wings and hop up parts, and even photoetch.

If you've been wanting to build a classic kit, or just want to explorer some Japanese culture, building one of these model kits can be a lot of fun, and will give you a new model building experience.

But you might also be building a car you grew up with, or remember a neighbor owning.

Nissan, Mazda, Toyota, Honda, Lexus, and many more great Asian model sports cars. From model manufacturers such as Tamiya, Fujimi, Hasegawa, Revell, Doyusha, and others.
