Arcades are dying out here in the States, but they sure wouldn't if they were more like this Japanese Initial D cabinet. Instead of just a booth or a mockup cockpit to sit in, you get to actually drive in the tofu car from the Initial D series. Not only do you get to drive the '86, you can also ride in a Subaru Impreza WRX and Mazda RX-7 (also featured in the show). If only their Boong-Ga Boong-Ga game was so realistic.

DISCUSSION

not to jump on you, but it's just an 86, not " '86 " (because the AE86-drivetrained cars weren't made in just 1986; the Sprinter Trueno was made from '83-'87)

(oh, and just for kicks: the Subaru is not a vanilla WRX, it's the STi Type R version V judging from the copper wheels and giant wing on the coupe along with the totally late-80's-ish rally style over-the-top body panels)
