It’s often hard to comprehend just how vast and deep automotive culture and passion spans in Japan. Last year I had the chance to help put together a program that attempted to show just this, looking at some of the biggest names out there. It was a pity it was only shown in Japan, but we all knew it wouldn’t be long before it was released online. It’s over forty minutes long so sit back and enjoy the show.

Cool video. I like the fact that everyone expressed their opinion on what a perfect car is without disrespecting each other.

Very, Very cool. This is a good starting point for trying to explain my sickness to my non-car friends. I showed it to a few and the whole "car is a canvass, builder is an artist" thing finally clicked with them. One of them even expressed how she better understood the painstaking process I take with planning every single little detail of a build that I may not start for 5 years. Glad someone put it where we could all see it. Thanks!

Very good watch, even with the droning, broken-record voiceover.

 

Dino, is that a euro-accent you have? I've always thought of you having a very American accent.. that shatters my entire universe

Speaking of engine swaps I think what's missing today is owners appreciation for the factory engine (especially in the US), and even when the owner "outgrows" the factory engine you gotta remember that balance is still key when swapping a newer engine into an older chassis.

 

More videos like these, please.

Great video, it puts into perspective why they do what they do, and how they do it. You can feel their passion for the automobile
