Some time ago I posted a video containing music by The Mack Show and got a bit more interested in the band. Apparently they made a song called Ballad of Ken and Mary in which they sing about their beloved Skyline C110.
If you haven’t figured it out: the song is loosely based upon The ballad of John and Yoko by the Beatles where John Lennon sings about his beloved marriage with Yoko Ono.
Transforming model cars into zokushas is not enough for some people: they also need to compete their creations against others at the Shizuoka Hobby Show. Amazing how many people actually are transforming those model kits into almost real zokushas!
My personal favorite is the shakotan Mark II X30/X40 on SSR Mk I rims. And what is your favorite?
Eikichi Yazawa became part of the whole subculture when he was part of the rockabilly group Carol in the early seventies. After his break-up with the group he pursued his solo career and managed to fill up the Budokan hall over a hundred times!
You may actually be familiar with his music through the game Yakuza 3: the opening theme was performed by Eikichi Yazawa.
Now if you are a huge fan of Eikichi your room might similar to this:

This room is located in FactoryKing’s garage, and yes: that is a Hart Racing rim in the background…

Now this is refreshing: someones kaido racer photo album with punk background music instead of rock ‘n roll!
The music is by a well known Japanese 80s punk band called Gun Heart.
This video shows you a whole different Pigsbutt/Butaketsu (????) than you are used to!
Mooning your fellow bosozoku sitting shotgun in a sharknosed Mark II, now that’s epic!
