Locale: フライラット, 町田 – Fly Rat, Machida
Thought I’d break up some coverage of JCCS with a little look at the Fly Rat used car & part shop in Machida, Tokyo. This is literally right next door to the Up Garage in Machida, so it was a no-brainer to go check it out. Fly Rat is part of the やまや山口株式会社, or the Yamayayamaguchi Group in Japan. The parent company of both Fly Rat, and Jon Flat; both used and new car dealerships and parts dealers. This location had a few cool looking rides, especially this pristine R32 rocking over-fenders on both the front and rear.
This 510 sedan was tucked away in the middle of the small lot. The interior was stripped, and it was upgraded quite a bit. I suspect it’s used on the track with the Fly Rat racing team. You can follow the racing team’s status here!
Enticing passerby’s to take a closer look, this 1980′s 2000RS was posted at the front of the lot. Looking relatively stock, I’m guessing it still had the original FJ20ET. If I ever find myself near another Fly Rat location again, I’ll be sure to take some more shots. I didn’t get a chance to speak to anyone, but they sure didn’t mind me rubbernecking and taking pictures on their property. Although, that seems to be consistent anywhere in Japan.
