If this is true, then it would be a rather interesting observation as most Japanese do not drive, cannot afford to drive, or simply do not know how to drive. I'd assume this is a trait found more in Americans or other foreign countries.


As for me, I like cars, but I'm not into them like I am anime. I do like driving, though; there's something about the feeling of the open road that can be either invigorating or relaxing depending on the mood and environment.

Also, if you didn't know how to drive in California, you'd be screwed.

I love cars--my dad used to make model cars when I was a kid and I'd always help him out. Also had some relatives who worked in the car industry, so that kind of contributed as well.
I personally enjoy working on a car and fixing it up, it's a fun hobby. However, I enjoy anime a lot more than I do cars.

Cars are overrated, motorcycles are where it's at and way cheaper to go way way faster and get way way way more dead.

You would think that but, it seems like Japan has a huge car culture. It's true that its slowly fading but, it's still big. Like Super GT somehow still draws a bigger crowd than F1.

Japanese fellow comes out here and rips up the desert.....

Oh yeah! After he barrel rolled it, he cleaned it up and showed in in Vegas and Tokyo.

Yes. I'm particularly into sports and muscle cars My dad got me into cars, we go to auto shows and look around at dealerships when there are new models out. It's one of the few things we've bonded over since I was a kid.

I'm fixing my Acura RSX type S. Its not the fastest "import", but it can handle. A lot of people are into the whole rear wheel drive or BMW thing, but I love my front wheel drive. Im an currently converting the front end from an 04 to an 05-06. I've added a CAI put some tanabe springs and some koni shocks, plus a whole bunch of JDM parts to it. It doesnt look all that but by next october, im hoping to have it looking clean. My favorite anime at the moment is JoJos bizarre adventure. Its action packed! And i'm currently reading terraformars manga. I'm 100% sure i'll be adding a few anime/manga themes to my ride at the end. Love Japanese products as well as german product. Well made shit!!

I love cars! I got into them before I got into Anime!
I love there complexity and the ability to make them your own thing. I also like anime and I frequently hunt of these anime stickers I like putting them on.

It might be off topic but I would like to meet a lady who is into cars just like me. I feel that I would spent most of my time under the hood of my car, then watching anime. Dont get me wrong I like anime but I would rather work on my car.

Here is a summary pic of what my future will be
