Big things with little cars

Land of the Rising Sun-Day: Liberty Walk Nissan Leopard

Liberty Walk is pretty much synonymous with extreme Customs - and the home of the world’s first Drift Lamborghini. Check it out on their website. Restraint and subtlety is just not their thing.

This car started life as an F30 Nissan Leopard, as made from 1980 to 1986. But that doesn’t matter much anymore - it’s all about the body kit here. This is a true example of the “Grachan” style.

Grachan or Garuchan comes from the 70s and 80s Grand Championships on Fuji Speedway. The Bosozoku used to have big meetings on the parking lots of these events, hence the name. These cars were meant to match the same body shape styling as the cars running on the circuits, with big wide fenders like used on the Super Silhouette styling. So this style is part of the Bosozoku Style.

Love it or loathe it, there’s no way you can ignore a car like that. The model is a 1/64 Aoshima - and as of the usually great Aoshima quality.
