The ASL RS01: With help from Tommy Kaira

Posted by B-San on February 24, 2012 at 3:20 PM

These days there is no such things as a individual carbrand anymore. The connections in the automotive world as like a spiderweb. Everybody has to do something with anybody. Sometimes things work out like when Toyota and PSA (Peugeot/Citroën) developed a small affordable citycar we now know as the Aygo, 107 and C1. Sometimes it goes horribly wrong. For example when some Italian and Japanese thought it would be great ...

Posted by B-San on February 16, 2012 at 3:05 PM

Its not often you get to see a video you instantly play on repeat, but I think we've found on.

Now I've come across a video of the Japanses Nissan J-tin club that had a meeting at Ichihara. What follows is a video of a bunc...

Setting Standards: The Garege TFR Bippu Cima

Posted by B-San on January 27, 2012 at 10:45 AM

As the world become more and more connection due to technology like internet and socialmedia we learn allot. We also tempt to adopt elements of other styles and cultures. This is why we see allot of "german styled" products in the USA. Also allot of Japanese carstyles have made their way into Europe. There, however, always was one style that didn't really pull off international. Or did I just always miss the zokusha's runni...

Video: Bosozoku kills his BNR32

Posted by damnjdm on January 20, 2012 at 10:10 AM

What do you do when you're on of the bosozoku and get tired of blasting down the wangan in your BNR32? Right, you park in a dark street downtown Yokohama and take a nap. A pretty deep nap as you won't notice the police cars driving past you. Here you see the Japanese trying to arrest a man sleeping in his GT-R with running engine. Its great to see ho...

A new year to come: What will 2012 bring us?

Posted by B-San on December 16, 2011 at 2:30 PM

We are slowly heading towards the end of the year 2011. This made us wonder; what will automotive-2012 bring us? In this period where tree-huggers seem to win over the petrolheads and the one after the other economic-crisis seems to hit the western-world you'd almost think we'll all be driving shoeboxes running on flowers by the year 2012. Lucky enough there still is some good news from Japan. If we are the believe th...

So much want: Vintage-styled Pitcrew NA

Posted by B-San on December 6, 2011 at 2:05 PM

As every true car-enthousiast you're always looking for inspiration on how to modify your car. Recent month I really got into the vintage-styled roadsters. CR-net's Vintage-roadster thread also didn't really help avoiding that. Out of all the kits that are available for the Roadsters there is ofcourse one that really gets that oldskool-vibe going. Ofcourse we're talking

Sad Story: Suzusho Surpasse V

Posted by B-San on September 26, 2011 at 11:45 AM

DamnJDM is not a website that attracts a great public of car-enthausiats. Mainly cause we only point out the Japanese models and brands but even than allot of Japanese car lovers are not the people that watch our site. We aim for the people that don't reply with questions like "can you eat that?" when we tell them terms like "hakosuka", "zokusha" or "irohazaka". Basicly you could say that only the die-hard JDM-fanatics ...

Spotted: JDM in the Wild...

Posted by B-San on September 25, 2011 at 11:40 AM

Ofcourse its great reading about all these awesome JDM rides Japan has produced over the years. But, I think, we can all agree that nothing beats the feeling of seeing one of these cars running down the streets in real life. Admit it, don't you get a little exited every time you see (for example) a R34 blasting by on the highway? Atleast I do... Making quite some miles a week due to my study and work I spot allot of gr...

Must see! GO!GO! Daijiro!

Posted by B-San on September 10, 2011 at 12:45 PM

We, ofcourse, don't have to introduce you to Daijiro Inada also known as Dai-san. Today I stumbled upon a video of Dai-san produced by Video Option called GO!GO!大二郎の大冒険 meaning something like "the advantures of Dai-san". Now pretty much all videos from Video Option were pretty cool but this one really stands out for me! In this 3DVD box Dai-san testes the ...

Golden Oldie: The 310 Bluebird

Posted by B-San on August 24, 2011 at 1:55 PM

I'm pretty sure we all had a grandfather or uncle that drove a Bluebird and they would all tell you how indestructible these cars were. The first Bluebird sold in Europe was the well known 510 model in '68. However the Bluebird range has a much longer heritage. The godfather of the later models l...

Yakuza Life: The Nissan President H150

Posted by B-San on August 18, 2011 at 10:15 AM

Badboys drive bad cars. Troughout history there have always been certain cars of which the most famous owners were dictators or other high-ranked criminals like for example the Mercedes-Benz 600 LWB's. The underground scene of Japan ofcourse could choose from a scala of European cars but there also were a handfull of homebrew cars who would do the job just fine. The Century fo...
