In the Karate Kid, Part II, the film setting is supposed to be Okinawa, Japan.

Actually, the movie was filmed in Hawaii. In keeping with the classic car theme of the Karate Kid, several Japanese Market cars were used in the film. One of these cars was a vehicle that I later owned. It is a 1966 Nissan Silvia CSP311. The car was hand built on the Datsun SPL311 Fairlady roadster frame. It was a two seater coupe. The original owner of this car was Elroy Goto, a factory Nissan Race car driver in the 60's.

The car is visable in the scene when the Bad Guys come to the small Village and beat up Ralph Machio (when he is learning the back-forth drum dance). The car was painted white. The funny thing...the film shows three Bad Guys exiting the car...yet the vehicle was only a tiny 2 seater car !

Also...This car model was designed by Count Albrect Von Goertz, the same car designer who designed the Toyota GT 2000 used in the Bond Film

I think that car is almost identical brother of Mazda Luce Rotary Coupe.
