A thing others won't understand, like the 1970's van craze, extended front fork choppers of the late 60's, and other trends that come and go... this is Bosozoku. In Japan





The hoods are flatter than usual, overhang the grill most of the time, running boards added, fenders and quarterpanels are widened and flattened, and the exhaust gets extravagant pipes... really tall ones. I'm happy to see something new emerge, it brings a new interesting thing to look at. Nothing wrong with that

  1. I'm sorry, but the Japanese are a very screwed up bunch of custom car builders. I mean really, WTF!
