Someone in Brazilian group posted this and I got speechless!
The guy behind Drift Hunters Documentary was in McDonalds having his dinner when a guy came to him with his smartphone showing he was watching his channel. Minutes after, the guy invites the YouTuber to outside and, for his shock, he discovers the guy was Jun Fujinoki, grandson of Mr. Fujinoki, owner of Fujinoki Tofu Shop!!! Yeah, Takumi exists among us!

Here's the Original Drift Hunter's Post Facebook.

I really don't know, but in first place it would be very disturbing if real Takumi was so big fan of himself to fill his room with Initial D goods! I picture him as a humble guy, who lives for driving and drives for living, carefully maintains his sports car and who now plays the Bunta role to his son, who just started driving.

So real life Takumi drives a GC8 to deliver tofu to Lake Haruna everyday...

I just realized why Shigeno drew Takumi driving a GC8 as the last scene in the end of the manga. It's just a message for himself on what inspired him to draw Initial D...while the rest of us were disappointed by the manga ending
