If you follow the blog regularly you probably remember these two.
They are a couple that likes to roll in style.
The girl’s ride is a Suzuki Wagon R. It’s basic, nice and cute. I know, the n. plate isn’t fully hid. That’s because it is the cool thing to do here. It gives you an extra street credit. It was bought from the internet auction.
The latest mod was the little orange indicators on the bumper that light up.
I never knew how difficult it is to take pictures of this colour at night. The colour is really nice and it really suit girls.
By now I should really get out of the closet and say right here, THIS IS SO COOL!!!!
The colour is the VW Golf. It was originally lighter grey.
The stance is at its lowest point.
The car is based on parts from the 80’s and resembles the Hakosuka.
Yes, Cobra bucket seats.
Some time ago, I asked him why he chose Kei cars to play with. He said they are easy to drive and are fun in many aspects: colour, wheels (Watanabe). He has many other sets of wheels and I did see some other wheel sets but there is still more.
They go to events and people do like the style and say his ride is cool.
