    It's funny... That rat rod is the oldest thing in Japan. It must have been imported the week after Hiroshima

    minitruckin is one of those things I will never understand...why on EARTH someone would want to spend their money to make their bed move around in the air and drag the ass-end on the ground like that. only truck I'd drive is an older S10 or Ford Lightning and it'd only have a paintjob (nothin too wild), decent wheels (not bigger than 19 or 20), and be dropped just enough. mostly be used to haul parts for whatever Honda project I may have :)

    i was gonna say the same thing. minitruckin is a form of lowriding just using small pickup trucks (Chevy S-10, Ford Ranger, Nissan Hardbody/Frontier, Toyota Tacoma...etc) instead of a car like an Chevy Impala or Bel Air for instance.

    You mean like the Lightning from the Fast and the Furious?

    :slap:

    Anyway, is it common to see S10s and Rangers in Japan, or are all of those imported?

    Well, just wondering. I assume they're imported, but then again, Toyota sold a re-badged Cavalier in Japan for a while, so I wasn't sure...

    GM bought that design on Licence from Toyota. The Toyota Cavalier (Yup, same name) of that generation was a Toyota design.
