AE86’s just don’t get better than this, so pink, yet so hard!
The fact is there will never be a time when metalflake will not be cool. – Will Carter 20/08/2010 23:58
This Datsun 910 is pretty hard to classify as a style, the arches and stance are very much Shakotan inspired, however the exhaust, loud paint and high rear spoiler point towards maybe a Bosozoku or Garuchan evolution in this car’s future. It would be interesting to see how it ended up looking or if the owner continued the mash-up of styles. Whatever style it is, the colour and stance are spot on and it’s certainly one of the better 910’s I’ve seen.
Living proof that all you need for an insanely cool car is a heroes ride height and the perfect set of wheels. This formula could work on just about any 1980’s 5-door saloon. Shakotan Lada Riva anyone?
What is Lowdown Spirit about? Well for me personally, it is just a place for me to post everything I like about the Japanese modified car culture in one place. A lot of the stuff you will see on this page will be reposted from elsewhere, I’m not trying anything revolutionary here, just to make a place that I and hopefully others can gain inspiration from. In this blog you will from time to time see some Japanese terms used to describe certain cars, below is a brief glossary as to what I mean when I use these terms.
