      I did a quick search before posting, only thread that came up was from 7 years ago.

      Not quite the USDM tuning i had in mind. Very impressed.






      A Look Back At: USDM Jam Ver 9.0 (Japan)


      I think its quite a diverse lot.

      Japanese do cars so clean. No matter what type or style. Be it a 3 million dollar classic Ferrari or a Kei van.......they just do it so CLEAN.

      I did a sticker for Canibeat for this show last year, and I have a few friends who go every year. It's a good group. I've never been to the show in person, regrettably.

      I can't imagine driving a Raptor in Japan.


      Did not expect to see this..



      But the much older classics I can understand from the hip-pop angle.
