I think the tag line for my blog should be “Japan does it better”. I just seem to bring it up every couple of posts. This post hits home because my father owned a Mazda5 and, I personally HATED the car. It just was that type of car that when you drove no one respects you on the road. But damn if I made it look like this one I would have LOVED driving it. This thing looks dope!
I can not claim the title as my own, but it worked so well I had to use it. It was either stancework or stancenation that thought up that name, can’t remember which. Anyways, I have a small obsession with these early Merc’s, and they seem to be getting more and more popular. Now, this seems to be a photoshop but it does show the car done in a way that really hasn’t been touched before. You usually see them either dropped stock body or patina’d in some way. I am really digging the all black everything in this case. And the big wheels kind of give it a modern twist. A resto-mod, if you will.
I figure now that I have a phone was a decent camera, I’ll post up every now and then, cars I catch going to work and such. A couple blocks away from my job I saw that dropped A4 wagon on Merc wheels. Pretty cool. I think my soft spot for wagons made me go out my way to snap a pic of it. Sweet daily!
Like everything else, over time every car will get it’s time on the popular charts. It’s weird at times, but it’s just how it goes. I feel this Accord 2-door falls in that category, or at least is in in beginning stages. The car itself has great lines and is becoming more affordable, so you can see why it could become the next “popular” car to mod. As you can see with the car below it does take much to make the car looks great. Dropped on some rota grids and you have a winner.
We all know the Porsche 356 is a classic. It’s a monument in Porsche history and today can fetch a pretty penny for a real example. It really is a pleasure to see guys starting to experiment and modify the beautiful car. As you can see, classic color combo’s are the way to go. This very light green/yellow is absolutely perfect, keeping the car’s classic look and a generous drop that would make anyone in the mod world very happy.
I mean, look at it, it’s absolutely perfect.
I had a chance to check out the Fiat 500 at the NY auto show a couple weeks ago, and I have to say, it’s a lot bigger then you might think. It’s more Mini Cooper sized then Smart Car sized. Came across this photo and I have to say it’s looks good modded. From what I can gather this is a Abarth edition is Europe. Don’t know if a more expensive Fiat will sell we’ll in the states, but it sure does look good. The drop and Work Meister wheels also help aesthetically.
With my never ending search for all things dope within the automotive community, I came across this Honda Accord on a Japanese blog. Lately I have been really into these 80’s cars and this one sparked my interest. I don’t I have ever seen a modded CA Accord. Really it’s just a drop and some classic SSR MK2 wheels. But there’s nothing better then a mint classic car. Really great.
Hopefully we’ll get to see some of these hear in the states soon.
