hey fellas

Well the TRDLZR met a grizzly demise and we have been busy working on new episodes

We just got back from Japan and managed to get ourselves into the auctions amongst other places.

It is a crazy, intense and very loud experience and we thought you guys would be interested to see the process of how a car starts its life in Japan, and ends up in Australia.

We travel around Japan National Geographic style to get a feel for the country and then head into second hand JDM heaven. We were also surprised at how many 'imports' were for sale (Imports in Japan are euros such as VW', AUDIS, Mercedes etc)

Was quite funny seeing High Performance Import magazine with a Golf GTI on the cover! And we saw some awesome motorbike magazines including the strangely titled 'GOO BIKE'.

So settle in because its TV length and check out some of the RIDICULOUSLY awesome cars for sale in Japan.

Nice to see a cabriolet getting some coverage there! Great video, really informative and really made me want to go to Japan! So much so I'm looking to see how much tickets from the UK cost as we speak!!

I'm sure they've bought a RX7, if you look to the right when they are talking about it, just into the camera is what looks like it COULD be an RX7...

I so hope it is!
