Since there’s quite a bit of interest here on Japanese culture, we’d add a regular segment for little snippets of JDM life. The first cab off the rank is….JDM PARKING! Once thing you notice when you travel around Japanese cities is that even in the suburban areas, space is very scarce. And for some reason, even though many houses have a space in front, it’s often not actually big enough for something like say….a car.
And so JDM drivers seem to have this rather stunning skill to park in tight spaces without scratching the paint. It’s usually the driver’s side which is parked close to the wall (for obvious reasons) but everywhere you go, you’ll see cars, trucks even, tucked scrapingly (but not quite) close to wall….now, I reckon I could do this once, maybe twice, but if I had to do this *everyday*, my head would explode.
…and it does start to make sense as to why lots of JDM cars have electrically folding mirrors.
And check this out….everybody reverse-parks!
…ok except for that Starlet owner.
