When I was younger the words “Japanese” and “Classic Car” would have evoked laughter from my Father. As I have mentioned numerous times, he lived through the golden era for muscle cars. He owned a 1966 Mustang and a 1959 Corvette. The Corvette was far from stock; a bored, stroked, balanced, and blueprinted 327 replaced the original 283. Much to my father’s consternation, there are more than a few Japanese classics out there today.
I recently made a trip out to Broadway Supercars in Clifton NJ where the owner, John Nouri, gave me a very interesting back story. In addition to owning the exotic car rental company John also procures and sells rare Japanese classics from the 90’s. His staggering collection of near mint condition cars are a 3000 GT VR4, Toyota Supra, Toyota MR2, Mazda RX7, Nissan 300ZX, and Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. All of them low mileage exemplary examples. These cars are perfect. No detail is overlooked. The cars are restored to such a level that they’re better than when they left the show room.

A Rare NSX
The star of John’s collection is a 2005 Acura NSX. 2005 marked the last year of the original NSX’s production. If you are in the market for an original Acura NSX, they don’t get much better than this one. Every single detail on this car is immaculate. It only has 29,688 miles on the clock and the Rio Pearl Yellow paint over black leather interior, couple with a 6-speed manual transmission, is an extremely rare combination.
