    Some of those paint jobs are insane! I love it! Thanks for sharing. Leave it to Japan to outdo some of our cars. Those cars are slick!

    Awesome shots.
     
  5. Toshi, don't mind the people who have nothing nice to say ... our HAMB members living overseas are some of the hardest-working people on here.

    Thanks for the great photos of some really great cars.

    I was just going to add another thanks for the pics, and please show us more!!

    But I'll say this to anyone bitching about them having American cars...

    Can you show us all the pics of these cars at U.S shows before they were sent over? No?? Because they were built by some very skilled craftsmen right there in Japan.

    Not that long ago a few cars were shipped over to display in a big Japanese show, one of which was built by a big name American shop and painted by a big name American painter, and the local cars absolutely walked them in fit, finish and overall quality. Not to mention style..

    Yeah, they have imported a few finished cars, but they study them and then build a better car, taking everything to the next level and always trying to perfect their craft. Everything is done 110%.

    You'll also find a lot of them were built from rusty stockers that no-one else wanted.
    Takes dedication to do that anywhere on the other side of the world.


    So lets see more of these amazing cars..

    Wow these guys have more American pride than most Americans do these days. They are driving sweet American Iron and half of America is driving foriegn junk. These guys Rock and the pics are sick.
     
  29. Love the pic's ,Toshi! You guys have great taste in American cars. Do you have any plans on visiting the USA? LA Roadster Show would be a great event to come and see. Or the Grand National Roadster Show.
    I have a DVD with that flamed Merc and the "Rod riguez" driving to Paso,and driving around Japan. Also that Zephyr is just AMAZING!!!!!!
     
  30. Would love to see a good side on shot of that Zephyr, looks like a nice chop and dose not have that UGLY hump that most of the others I have seen have in the rear.
    Nice.

    Doc.
