This will be the second in my series of photo galleries exploring the diversity in design, style and tradition of Japanese Vehicle modification. The Japanese car scene is one that seems to continue to evolve - resulting in endless and infinite varieties of vehicles. 'JDM' (Japanese Domestic Market( i.e. Japanese-looking)) is now one of the most popular visual styles globally, with huge followings in the USA and Europe exemplified by the hugely-funded D1 Drift Grand Prix.
This is why I've put this series together. To honour those who put their time, effort and personality into their cars. By that, I don't mean to sound like some cliché 'Fast and The Furious' quote about how 'the car chooses the driver' or something ridiculous like that. I'm just respectful of passion for an interest, whatever it may be. These cars aren't for commuting. Most of them aren't even for racing or drifting.
This AE86 screams and that's nothing to do with the exhaust.
Not your average Trueno, huh?
Classic Skyline GTR. The Yakuza's choice of generations past.
Mixing classic cars with new parts. The Japanese love their cocktails.
Skyline brotherhood. Could you even choose between them?
You asked for JDM. You got JDFM.
The Skyline R33. You look so good in blue...
Not everyone wants to be flamboyant.
Who said they can't make engine bays pretty too?
