Customer Car: Miles’ GT-R

Posted by

Miles has a great race prepped GT-R over in Australia.

Loads of great mods were done. On this car we made Miles an authentic Amuse front diffuser converted to carbon fiber as a one-off.

 

The car also sports the Top Secret hood, Aeromotions wing, full custom cage, dry carbon doors and loads of other mods.

Doesn’t get much lower than that!  The front lip is practically scraping that iPhone.

This GT-R glows like an angel.  Must be the car of Miles’ dreams!

Art: Hakosuka and Robots

Posted by

One of my favorite things about JDM culture is the community.  I can’t say how many interesting people I’ve met, from all walks of life, who are just as passionate about the quality and craftsmanship that goes into these parts as I am.  It’s always energizing and inspiring when that common bond is recognized, especially when it happens spontaneously.

That said, it is incredible when I’m doing something completely non-car related and I’m reminded of the vast community of JDM aficionados out there.   A few weeks ago I went to a SoCal street art show and was pleasantly surprised to see the unmistakable mug of the original GT-R in this piece by Matt Spangler.  His work does not involve cars usually (mostly robots) so I was shocked that the only car he had in any of his art was a hakosuka!  It was a very random and cool find!  Even if I didn’t get to meet Mr. Spangler and discuss the realness of the hakosuka with him, I just was happy to know he’s representing JDM cars (and JDM robots).

Seeing Red

Posted by

My apologies for the quality of this photo, but this Hakosuka was just too good not to post.  How could anybody not love the red and bronze combo with perfect wheel fitment?

Longtime readers of this blog may know that I’m usually not a huge fan of red cars. I realize that I’m in the minority on this one, but I think it is one of the most played out colors for sports cars. Yet somehow the very oldest (Hakosuka GT-R) and very newest (2012 R35 GT-R) both look incredible in red. As a result I’m compelled to show a couple more red GT-Rs.

A side-by-side comparison really shows off the good genes that were passed down the GT-R lineage.

The row of red R35s above and the iconic headlights of the Hakosuka below were both snapped at the R’s Meeting in Japan last month.  Plenty of red GT-Rs there!
