Family Album Treasures: the unloved short nosed KPC10

September 9, 2011 in Family Album Treasures

Looking at the en-profile shot of this Nissan Skyline I can understand why the KPC10 is so unloved: the lines are all wrong for the coupĂ© when it has got the short nose. Now if it were a short nosed 4 door…

But that probably didn’t matter for this member of the Jokers: he owned a Skyline C10 back in the 70s and I certainly will never… ;)

Family Album Treasures: Jokers Mazda Cosmo AP

July 12, 2011 in Family Album Treasures

Of course I would be proud if I would own a Mazda Cosmo AP with 13b rotary engine in the eighties!

This particular Cosmo AP was owned by one of the members of the Aoyama Jokers and later on this car became one of the most iconic bosozoku styled Cosmo APs known. He swapped the headlights for a set of square headlights and was so fond of it he stood on top of his pride! Definitely something to add to the family album and keep it for future generations!

Family Album Treasures: Jokers Yonmeri Skyline GC110

July 2, 2011 in Family Album Treasures

This particular Yonmeri Skyline was actually owned by one of the members of the Aoyama Jokers (one of the most notorious Bosozoku gangs in the 70s and 80s) and modified in what we call Kyusha Kai nowadays.

The car features a set of 9J wide Volk Mesh rims.
Of course this picture was taken near the beach/shore and the owner stands casually next to his pride and joy. Definitely worth adding such a photo to your family album!

Hilarious: Bosozoku car chase (stop motion)

June 25, 2010 in hilarious

I had a good laugh when I watched this stop motion animation of two bosozoku style cars being chased by the Japanese police:


The video is called Tomica “Brothers race shop”. The two brothers drive a Nissan Skyline KPGC10 and a Nissan Skyline KDR30 Super Silhouette (replica) and even manage to get the military involved… The video was made by CARBOY0604 and his son. Love the way the music shifts from scene to scene. ;)

Hilarious: Advertising gone wrong on Bosozokustyle.com

November 27, 2009 in hilarious

On Bosozokustyle.com we have several advertisement campaigns running and when we don’t have anything to show we use Google Adsense to fill up the space. Apparently is does not always work out okay:
Advertising gone wrong on Bosozokustyle.com

I wonder what those Bosozoku would actually think when they saw that particular advertisement next to their zokusha posing picture! ;)
