The people over at japanesenostalgiccar.com certainly have an eye for youtube videos and their coverage of a Datsun 240z with an extremely rare and expensive DOHC swap for an l28 block is no exception.

thatonegearhead asked: Do you happen to have a list of all of the different Japanese styles, such as Bosozuka, Kyusha, etc, Shakotan, etc? Thanks in advance!
I guess I can list off all the ones I know
- Kaido Racers(highway racers)
- Shakotan(really more of a description, not a style, meaning low)
- Bosozoku(not really a style either, bosozoku are japanese biker gangs)
- Zokusha(the actual style that is commonly referred to as Bosozoku by people, well, everywhere else)
- Kyusya/Kyusha(old car style, where many kaido racers fall under)
- Grachan(pretty much abstract race car styling)
- Kanjo(street racers that run loops around a kanjo circuit, or highway loop)
- Bippu/VIP(big body sedans with big wheels)
- Dekotora(crazy mural vans with lights and stuff)
- USDM(it’s where guys in japan mimic us as we try to mimic them, it’s kinda funny)
- Hot Rods(Yeah they love that shit)
- Lowriders(those too)
- Kei Cars(those are pretty cool, why wouldn’t they be into them)
Someone out there is dying to correct me on a couple things, so feel free, I always want to learn.
