Again, I'll begin by thanking 7tune for the images - they really are fantastic.
Anyhow, we've returned once more for the fourth installment of Japanese car culture. Previously I've talked about the artistic value of these machines, with wide bodykits, deep dish wheels and those undisputably JDM looks. However, we've been avoiding another reason for the hard work that goes into these cars - the good ol' showing off. I mean really, if they're going to spend five times the cars value for a set of bumpers and sideskirts there must be a reason other than to satisfy their inner artist. Let's just remember the sounds these cars make too - the deafening roar coming from an engine at it's limit just can't be interpreted through a silent image. So I'll do my best to impersonate an 800BHP 2JZ engine - 'BRRRapRapRapraprap'...
I hope you enjoyed that. Here's part four of The Japanese Car Scene.
'Sir, I do believe your wheel is coming off...' Mild JDM offset
Not what you want to see pushing you along down a country lane.
Nissan Skyline GTR. The R35's great great great grandpappy.
Okay, now that's just ridiculous.
Take your pick. Good luck with the insurance though.
When was the last time you saw a brown car? Lookin' fly.
These classic JDM Celicas look like baby muscle cars, don't they?
Front-sill mounted wing mirrors... Don't forget your glasses.
Vrroom... Until next time.
