I remember back to early 2011 to see a picture showing the future of hellaflush. RIP was wrote as describing the end of a trend. Because when something is trend has its days numbered.
It starts in the US, quickly it spread to UK and circa 2010 hellaflush was within whole Europe and Japan.
They get into the HF and the USDM with awesome cars full of quality, you know business as usual.
But 2012 is looking different, TAS, Osaka Messe and which is even more important because the attendant of car owners and no business owners the 2012 Weksos meeting reveled that HF is about to die. I will better say about to change.
Most mixing with the VIP style has finally ending VIP car which looks better.
And others and mainly Civics comeback to its roots of quality parts and no rare fitments. JDM is back to stay with clean cars even if most look the same, you will always love to find a Civic with TE37’s standing on your desktop.
Driftcars will always be driftcars, so keep them drifting.
Classics? Let’s see what happen.
