What did Kamikaze airplane pilots who survived WWII do when they got back home? Well, they created one of the coolest most badass and unique car cultures ever! They evolved a unique style that transcended from fashion and motorcycles to cars … this is the story of Bosozoku car culture.

Huge thanks to the Moonlight Runners for lending us their sick Toyota Cressida Bosozoku car.

      Untill they put In some work inside that engine bay that shit is rice. Those Japanese boys put some work into their engines.

    • Dakota Dewolf says:

      Right? JDM car culture gets lumped up a lot with different sub genres being mis-understood, especially when half the cars they modify never even came here. Good to see Donut doing right by that.

      —- Side note for clarification if anyone was wondering about Kyusha and Shakotan styles —-Neither are inherently Boso. Bosozoku cars are often Kyushas, which most directly translates to a classic car, and most are Shakotans, which translates to street scraper or “slammed”. Not all Boso cars are kyushas or Shakotans and only a small percentage of Shakotans and Kyusha are Bosozokus.

    30ft. is a little over 9 meters. Love the videos. Keep m coming!

    • The G Ster Productions says:

      +ConLee a little over 3ft

    • ConLee says:

      The G Ster Productions ah. I wish America just used the metric system. I hate these type of confusions

    • Omar T says:

      +ConLee we did, in the 1980’s, guess what that did, it fucked everything up, some things got adopted and others got mixed to hell, there’s 2 Liter bottles next to gallon drinks at the grocery store, the nutrition facts labels on the back of food products is a mixture of Imperial and Metric bullshit on the same label, don’t even get me started on lumber and how chaotic that’s going to get if we went full blown metrification in the construction industry, that’s what my dad does for a living. im a mechanic, and im having to have double the amount of tools you guys have just to work on the same stuff, but atleast if a 13mm bolt begins to strip, i just use a 1/2in socket on it.

    • Mykel Hardin says:

      +ConLee 3ft = 1yard not 1 meter

    • Viktor Benjegård says:

      1 yard is .9 meters
      1 foot .3 meters

  12. Fenno Graas says:

    Most people: I need a straight short pipe for 2 extra horses

      +NintendoGeek26 you still start fights with strangers on the internet cause they have slightly different opinions tho. that’s pretty friggin homosexual so i think that means all your points are moot

    • fencingboy 101 says:

      +Darrell Myers he really do don’t he

    • fencingboy 101 says:

      +DJ BIS this @NintendoGeek26 fella actually sippin stoopid juice

    • NintendoGeek26 says:

      +Darrell Myers lol ok. You do what you want, just don’t call it bosozoku or zokusha if it ain’t. I’m just trying to shine light of what Bosozoku or Zokusha actually is. There is creativity but also a template like in any other car scene. (Grachan, Kaido Racer, Chibaragi, Silhouette, Haiso)

    • JkTheBoss says:
