Today’s featured reader ride is actually a pair of cars owned by Junpei-san from Fukuoka, Japan.
As you can see by the photo, Junpei has a thing for Nissan Skylines – particularly those of the shakotan variety.
Junpei’s Skylines of choice are a two-door HCR32 and a four-door HR30 – both of them slammed to the ground.
First up the R32. It’s running TEIN coilovers with Swift Springs, Ikeya Formula adjustable arms, and a set of 18″x9 and 18×10″ Work Meister M1Rs with gratuitous amounts of negative camber. You can also spot the Brembo brakes, roll bar, and Recaro seats.
Junpei didn’t list the modifications done to the car’s RB25DET, but you can see that it at least has a front-mount intercooler kit and a trick exhaust system.
The HR30 is equally impressive, coated in a custom green-bronze metallic hue.
It’s powered by its factory equipped NA L20 inline six, which Junpei says is pretty rare to see these days.
Junpei did extensive work to make the car sit the way it does. Besides the custom JIC coilovers, the front subframe has been modified and the engine and transmission have actually been raised a bit for extra clearance. He says he thinks it may be the lowest HR30 in Japan.
The Hayashi Street CR wheels are perhaps the perfect wheel choice for this Showa Era machine.
Before someone rushes in to point out that these cars don’t have optimal contact patches on their tires or the correct amount of suspension travel, I’m just gonna jump out on a limb and say that Junpei is probably aware of that. It doesn’t look like it’s stopped him from enjoying his pair of Skylines one bit.

Love those cars, Japan must have the smoothest roads could never drive a car that low here in Utah without taking out a oil pan.
KAG actually the roads are as bad as anywhere else (toll roads excepted). they are just THAT dedicated to their particular expression of style. besides alot of the cars in Japan are running air bags as well. so it's not all creeping over curbs and pot holes at 1 mph.
Yeah, lost a muffler here in Utah on a speed bump, they are reverse here going into the ground instead of up. I see Guys from Japan here driving the big Lexus's slammed to the ground, they have to be on bags. dadecode
Just like a fashion model, the R32 changed rims during the photo shoot. What are the rims in the first 2 pics?
Beautiful cars! I'm not a fan of having the wheels like that, but the cars are beautiful none the less :) The HR30 (as well as the R31) are the most beautiful of this sized Skylines :)
You touch'a mah car, I Fukuoka, see?
Sorry, couldn't resist. Very sweet rides, love the rims on the HR30. Would have been nice to see a few interior & engine shots.
GraysonParker LOL! Yeah I'm sure that'll save us all from a lot of yapping. Very very clean builds!
KenshinG yes because any kind of negative commentary will destroy the planet and or just totally annihilate his self esteem and turn him inwards towards finger painting - If he really loves his car it wouldn't matter - if all he wants is attention and doesn't like all he gets - sad face is sad.
