When we all think in race cars, probably everything that came to our minds are Civic, Silvia’s, Skyline, Supras… or in the case you are an Euro fan, the real popular Clio Sport and specially for European followers.
But Japan has a really open mind when talking about races, and they do races whatever that has 2 or 4 wheels, and I am probably thinking that even more wheels are allowed when talking about racing in Japan.
For me, one of the most interesting races are the Kei Truck Championship, these consist in all kind of Kei Truck’s, open or closed all around Japan. As always some basic modifications for widely open fun. Always is the same recipe, good suspensions, good wheels and probably some exhaust and intake modifications and drive.
These Kei Truck are daily driven so they keep license plates. Street legal tires and most of them of course Air Conditioning and power windows.
Now sit down and enjoy races.
Lubross Oil and GT Produce are supporting this race series and if you would like to find more info have yourself a website check. Note that these website are in Japanese but you can always use Google translate to view them.
A few pics I snapped at a local meet not long ago. I’ve seen this car around town. Finally I was able to see it up close and take some pictures. The owner was kind enough to move it away from the show for a bit, so I could get the shots.

I recently saw this Jetta wagon on Motormavens and instantly loved it. If you havent heard fifteen52 yet be sure to check them out.
This quote is from co-owner of the company.
Fifteen52 is better defined by our concept rather than any specific line of products or services. Simply stated, our number one goal is to offer our customers whatever is necessary to make them feel they own truly unique automobiles. Approaching everything we do from an enthusiast perspective, we are a small but dedicated operation that prefers to take each job and each sale on a case-by-case basis. Customer service is our number one priority and our true measure of success is how well we manage to foster a customer’s love affair with his or her vehicle.” –Matt Crooke</blockquoteard

I go by Enoezam. I’ve been into cars & graffiti for many years, and owned over a dozen cars. Everything from a 75′ Nova to a 72′ 510.
I’m also a graffiti artist.
I started a blog called tailoutsx on wordpress around the time this one started, but life changed and I stopped. Long story short Jose asked me to blog for his site, and I’m excited to colab on this site. You can expect alot of stanced, classic, and artistic content in my post. I am also starting a site called maraxproject.com on Cars, and all things street, and art. Check it out. Lastly thanks Jose for this opportunity to share my take on what is legit in this scene.
That’s a useful car, isn’t?
