Might catch some heat in here for this.. but I'll give it a go.. I'm also sending out free stickers to people with cars that fits the bill.. Tell your friends to tell their friends!
What is Jermanese Auto?
Jermanese Auto is a style of tuning which German cars are modified with Japanese tuner parts or carry that style typically found in Japanese imports..
At the moment, this will live as a category under SQUARE!SPOKES.. think of it as a sub-brand.
What's up with the name?
German + Japanese = Jermanese
Auto = Well.. automobile and the fact that Volkswagen always goes "Das Auto", so I figure it is appropriate here.
How did this start?
For me personally, I come from Japanese imports (Honda/Toyota) before I owned my Volkswagen GTI..
The Japanese tuner style has always appealed to me, but at the same time I wanted to try something different by getting into VWs..
From the very beginning, I already had plans to modify my GTI in this manner. I would find myself browsing in Japanese car forums and keeping my eyes out on the latest trends despite owning a VW..
Sometimes I feel like I don't even fit in the "normal" euro community, but at the same time that was okay with me because along the way.. I've come across acquaintance and friends who are also interested in this style of tuning and supports the movement..
What are my goals with this?
My goal is to bring together like minded people to share & learn from each other.
I always felt like I was an "outsider" in the typical VW communities, so it would be nice to unite a group of people who appreciates this style of tuning to motivate each other..
Also, a lot of this involves being creative and finding ways to make parts work for your application, so the more support the better.
If this picks up momentum.. I have plans to feature cars on here as well.
Who can join?
Anyone with a German Car (Volkswagen, BMW, Benz, Porsche,etc) that have intentions to modify their cars this way.
Where do I start?
