Three JDM machines for a tick under three bills shipped. Sounds like a lot until you realize these are rare beasts that are worth about three hundred. Each.

First up, this white-on-white Integra Type R.

Looks great next to my restored blue one, which IMO is a better color, surprisingly.

Then there’s the post-bugeye STi, my 2nd favorite generation behind the ‘08 hatchback. Which, for whatever the @#%$ reason, no one makes in 1/18.


Of course, you may remember I just got this one a couple weeks ago, but in black. Here they are reunited.


And then the senior citizen here. I don’t know what the official name of this one is (2.5 RS....what what, Type R?), but it’s an STi nonetheless. World Rally Blue, gold wheels.

But wait, there’s more!


The 22B STi, black-on-gold. This one’s a current release, but I got it for just $110 shipped - far less than the $150+ it normally goes for. Obviously, it’s not the preferred color, but at this price, beggars can’t be choosers.

It’s been a Subie-fest lately, all purely coincidental. I simply take advantage of the opportunities I find.


Lastly, some European representation in today’s HAWL. It’s a big one.

GT Spirit’s Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, dealer-edition white colorway. This one, also, was a pretty good price at $100 shipped. Dealer editions typically go for $150+, and I’ve been wanting the S65 ever since I drove next to one a couple months back. While the JDM stuff above was cool, I think this is my favorite for today.


That concludes today’s post, and I should have another big HAWL sometime next week. In the meantime, here’s a teaser for what I will try to photoshoot tonight (which, to nobody’s surprise, was also a steal):
