Wreckin’ Meet Japan 2016 Coverage… Part 2…

…And now, for the stunning conclusion of the Car Limbo tournament, much more exciting and competitive than the NCCA Basketball Tournament that hasn’t quite happened yet. I’m kidding. This is great stuff. I love Japan and all that comes with car culture from their perspective. Please enjoy more from the 2016 Wreckin’ Meet coverage that I, once again, completely forgot that I even had in my possession until just recently. Thank you to Shota Mori for his fantastic photos once again…

Read forth my friends…

Makoto Kikuchi and his turbocharged MPV doing a burnout after successfully advancing to the next round of the Limbo Contest. I’m making that up of course because I honestly don’t know if there is like a bracket for the contest where they have separate levels and rounds and shit. I don’t think they really take it that seriously with strippers being there and all…

  1. Um, I’m no Beetle expert either, but if I had familiarity with the Japanese car scene…I’d venture guessing that it’s a 1954 model (based on the license plate).

    The windshields got bigger in the sixties.

    • The black one is a 52 1/2 to early 55 based on the tail lights. The green one is a 54 and the white and rat rod are early 60’s as they have the larger windows and the front turn indicators were moved from inside the head lamp to the top of the fender. The squareback is a mid to late 60’s model based on the signals in the front.

      I am older and worked at Johnny’s speed and chrome vw in the 80’s and grew up during the cal bug scene

  2. Stripperrrrsssss! Yessss! I mean thank you for knowing the difference between plural and possessive. So so sick of seeing “TE37’s” instead of “TE37s”. Not stripper’s but stripperssss! LOLOL Thanks for all the great pics I don’t care if they’re old keep ’em coming!
