So what's the point of those huge boards projecting from several of the car bodies? Though I'm sure these car bodies are never driven anywhere in the first place, these boards would seem to ensure that the vehicles would suffer terrible damage on any surface not perfectly flat....
Unique!! Definitely not like anything I've seen before.
I'd sure like to know what those low projecting bits in the front are inspired by, or intended for.
It must be for the plowing of snow..
Seriously, what on earth are those platforms for? The only thing I can think of is to gain the ability to drive safely during a zombie holocaust.
"The function of the airfoils at the front of the car is twofold. They create downforce that enhances the grip of the front tires, while also optimizing (or minimizing disturbance to) the flow of air to the rest of the car."
the only why that what you think will work is if they can go fast enough to do so witch would be faster than their top speed is with superchargers. the cars are crap
If this trend comes to America, I'm leaving.
They just look crappy...
The title should not be "crazy custom cars in Japan" it should be "crappy custom cars in Japan".
What were they thinking ?!!!
KILL IT WITH FIRE
They are cheaply gangs and hicks.
They are still living 80s.
you got that right
I was under the impression that to make a car faster, you should REMOVE weight not add lots of weight to it. Maybe we've had it wrong all this time. Those poor unfortunate cars never stood a chance.
what the hell do u call them
These cars are Bosozoku cars, can also be considered Garuchan... I wrote a peice explaining them here :
Check the Bosozoku tag on the blog for more info and stuff :)
Yansha. I never get tired of seeing those. Though that C210 Skyline is just blasphemy. Look at that poor thing.
