One of the things I’ve enjoyed about Evangelion as I’ve been watching it is that Eva kids have to defeat each angel on a different plane. Sometimes it’s good ol’fashioned fisticuffs, sometimes it’s matter of getting some cold matter into a volcano, sometimes it’s even about typing faster than a computer virus. I haven’t finished watching the series, so there are still a few more angels to go, from my perspective, but I’d be absolutely tickled if Shinji and his pals ever had to defeat an angel through a Nascar race.
I bring that up because is Japanese Super GT300 Toyota Cororlla Axio team is thinking along a similar, if not identical, wavelength. They’re hoping to drum up sponsorship from NGE's wide fanbase by giving their car an EVA 001 makeover. Look to the right and you might recognize that purple and green color scheme from a certain series about bio-mechanoid mecha and their emotionally-disturbed teenage pilots. The picture comes from Jalopink and they’ve got more information about how, if you so choose to, you can help these good ol’ boys from Japan successfully combine their love of fast cars and twisted mecha through your sponsorship.
