Foud in my local Poundland for £1 great price for a great book
The Japanese car industry has come up with some of the world's most exciting, most desirable and most fascinating models over the years, a trend that continues to this day. Glance at many a Japanese manufacturer's price list and, in among all the mass-market stuff, you'll find the kind of machinery guaranteed to capture the imagination of petrolheads everywhere.
This book is a tribute to forty of the greatest, most interesting models ever produced in Japan, covering every decade from the 1960s through to the early years of the 21st century. So whether it's a classic Honda S800 or Datsun 240Z, a nearsupercar Toyota Supra Twin Turbo or Honda NSX, or an all-wheel drive Subaru lmpreza Turbo or Mitsubishi Evo that does it for you, there are tributes to them all — and a whole lot more — in Beasts From The East.
Not every beast in the book is massively powerful, impressively expensive or even drop-dead gorgeous. But every single model featured deserves to be included for offering something different in a world of motoring blandness.
That's why our favourite beasts are all here and are all being celebrated. Whatever your interest in Japanese cars, Beasts From The East provides information and entertainment in equal measures.
Author Paul Guinness has been a full-time motoring writer for more than two decades and has been editor of five national car magazines during that time. He brings together all this experience in Beasts From The East, providing a unique perspective for Japanese car enthusiasts everywhere.
