      Thanks for the pics - great Legacy there but gee they could make a nice display with their history and that is all they do???? Doesn't do justice to a great rally pedigree.

        Totally agree Andrew, after the great Honda Museum I was expecting more. It was opened for STI's 20th anniversary and might just be a rush job. Considering Mazda and Nissan also have museums, it might be only a matter of time before somthing more significant is established.

          And did you visit said Museums? The Red Park Nissan museum is said to be pretty good. If you'd timed your travel a little later (22 Nov) you'd have been able to attend the Toyota Motorsports Festival.

            I got a leaflet about the Toyota festival and wish I was going to still be there. Coming home is depressing! Japan was fantastic and will have to go back again one day for sure.

            Was close to the Mazda Museum but did not have time to get there. It shows alot about the cars production with a section on classic cars. The Nissan one would have been good to see but again was not able to find time to get there. Was travelling with a friend and had dragged her to enough things she was not interested as it was so best to be fair

                Datsun

                Not really from a museum but could be the start of one, but when I was dropping off a 240Z at Nissan Head Office on Monday to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the 'Z' car and came across this one in the area where the function was to be held. Not only was this on display but a 1963 Bluebird (restored by Nissan) and an early Patrol (that looked very agricultural).

                  I believe the significance of this car is that it is Colin McRae's Legacy from 1993 Rally New Zealand, which was the first WRC win for both Subaru and McRae.

                    And the only WRC win for the Legacy.

                      The story goes that SWRT were not allowed to introduce the Impreza until they had achieved a win in the Legacy.

                              The Museum you speak of is owned by Stuart Saunders (an Opthalmic Surgeon) who lives in the Canberra region.

                              He has a number of Bugati, Type 35

                              The Binalong Museum is basically a storage facility for Car's usually awaiting Mechanical work, basic Service up to an engine rebuild.

                              Stuart still owns the replica XJ13
