One of my all time favorite Japanese cars is the Lexus SC300/400 or in Japan it would be the Toyota Soarer. The sleek long body style combined with the awesome lines of the car made me fall in love with this car. This long Lexus gets even better when it’s

Lowballers Japan

 In the north side of Japan, there lies a group of friends who are inspired by the U.S. clean and simple look of modifying cars. They are the Lowballers Japan and they roll around in their city with cars that would fit so well in the United States. When I

A Broken Chain

Everyone remembers their first car, even if it was beat up or a hand me down. The first car is the key to unlocking the wonderful journeys of this world. Your first car is the threshold from asking your mom to give you a ride to being free and just
