    Seriously, I would like to hear the reasons why you started and why you still are into it now.

    Any reply is a good one, be honest.:)


    And if B.S. starts please believe your post will be deleted. This isnt a reason to harp on someone.:slap:

    Lets hear it.:)

    great guys.
    :)

    I originally got into the scene by meeting people and Hanging out with them who were already in the scene.:thumbup:

    To be honest, I am not the greatest "JDMer" in the world.

    I am more interested into racing and fabrication.

    I think that just translated into the scene and the people I know in cali.

    All of us trying to create the most functional, safe and powerful cars we could. While still maintaining the original beauty and lines of the car.

    I think you with us...

    Even If your Car isnt all JDM that Doest mean that you as a Person is not "JDM", as Long as You have the Knowledge of the JDM Culture as a Whole ~ JDM doesnt have to Always be about Cars / Car Parts~

    Ok taking that Definition.... I'm still Waaaaaaaayyyyy over on the other side of the scale. Besides the playstation and the fact that my mazda was shipped here from Japan a week before I picked it up.... that's about the extent of my Japanese knowledge and concern. :) Me as a person is not "JDM" at all. Nothing against it or those who are. Just not what I am into or care about. :)

    It all started when i had my Da. My friends were talking about getting body kits, altezza's, and all that bullsh*t. A friend of mine was just telling me to just lower my car and see how it would look. Sure enough I did and liked it, he told me to go "JDM" with it. I looked up "JDM" and it just opened up a whole new world. And i quickly got sucked into it. its been 3 or more years now.

    I have always had a thing for everything Japanese... Girls, culture, food, anime and so on. But when it comes to cars I would have to say the reason I choose Japanese Domestic Market over US is the fact that they just make a better product!!! And when it comes to tuning a car they offer more support towards doing so parts wise then the US. Last but not least is the style of racing that japanese cars are known for which is circut racing. What is there not to like about a well balanced car that can hug some apexes!!!

    US muscle cars with lots of hourse power and torque is some what coo... But sorry only being able to go in a straight line "drag racing" or in circles "Nascar" doesnt do it for me.

    Im more of a Japanese nostalgic car guy... And the lines of older Japanese cars are way sexier then US classic cars!!!

    I agree with you brian, but I will say that there are some great handling US cars out there, the Vette is one of them, and the viper isnt too far off either these cars just require a bit of skill to get what you want out of them but they handle great. of course they are more expensive than your average civic but still cant count them out handling wise.

    True... The Ford GT isnt too bad either but you can count the number of well balanced US cars with one hand, Japanese cars on the other hand youll need more then two hands. LoL too many hands I confused myself

    two more to add the US list is the Cadillac CTS-V for good handling and suprisingly I remember car and driver or motortrend praising the mustang cobra R as a very neutral handling car which isnt very common in the mustang circles.
