Hmmm, I wonder if there is a rest home for retired Japanese mascots?

The Rainbow Tower has been closed since 2011 due to the Great East Japan Earthquake. An investigation of the tower’s earthquake resistance found the base to be insufficient… mainichi.jp…
Here’s a slice of street life…lowriding in Shibuya district, Tokyo.
@MKB0T—Driving home last night behind a ghost busters car. I think. It only had red lights. The indicators and brake lights were the same lights.
This so-called “ghost busters car” is a 1959 Chevy Impala lowrider (shown in the bottom half).
The Ghostbusters vehicle, called the “ECTO-1,” was a 1959 Cadillac ambulance, a professional chassis built by the Miller-Meteor company (shown in top half).
Those tiny 5.20 tires with pin-thin whitewalls didn’t become a thing until the 1980s in the Lowrider community. In 1968, a lowrider would have fat whitewalls mounted on five-spoke Cragars or Astro Supreme rims.
