Another great video of a meeting:
Someone rebuild his 300ZX into a late 80s granchan racer. His car says: Japan Buttigiri Special, anyone familiar with the term buttiguributtigiri?
I think you mean “buttigiri” or ?????, which means “non-stop”.
So it would be the Japan Nonstop Special.
(thank you Yoppy!)
This might be the somewhat updated pic of that car. http://cache.jalopnik.com/assets/resources/2008/04/What_The_Hell_JDM.jpg
Thanks! I corrected the term to buttigiri!
Now I can find some more info on that car. 🙂
This one for instance:
It seems buttigiri originated from Manga (circa 1987-89?)about a truant/delinquent high schooler who was once in a bosozoku group. He always got in trouble and wasn’t afraid of challenges. Buttigiri may have influenced the driver of the car for him to place that on his car… As for the meaning of buttigiri? So far I got “nonstop” and “to win by a large margin”… who the heck knows?!
