Shakotan: Zokusha Patrol Car will make you want to get pulled over

What in holy hell is going on here? A zokusha a police car? It’s topsy-turvy, man. Like cats playing with dogs! Shouldn’t the lowered, widened rides of the OG Japanese bad boys be the very antithesis of law-and-order establishment enforcers from one of the world’s most law abiding nations?

Or perhaps it’s a response to the widespread growth of bosozoku culture worldwide. If your barrels are shallow or your tsurikawa ain’t dragging, you just might get slapped with a citation from the Shakotan Police, sucka! And if the Japanese word for “slammed” scrawled across the area where the prefecture is normally displayed doesn’t say it all, then the bolt-on bubble flares and bright yellow takeyari exhaust certainly do.

Actually, the beautifully subversive yonmeri Skyline is one of the cover cars for the debut issue of Motorhead. Here’s a making-of video with the ridiculously tall model.


This is the final product. Sadly, the magazine’s subject matter is not old school J-sleds but exotics like the red Porsche. Come to think of it, this could be Kev’s ideal read.

 

 

 

 

 

Fishnets and fender mirrors.

According to the creators, this GC110 is going to “conquer Japan” one custom car show at a time. Seriously though, if those flashing lights and that angry scowl were to appear in our rear view, our first instinct would be to not pull over but run for our freaking lives, even if old school Japanese cops tend to shoot first and ask questions later.

    Nice to see a Liberty Walk zokusha here!
    Given the fact that Dino visited them recently I think they will be quite famous soon. ;)

    No grille makes it easier to place the “angry” headlights.
    (I think that is Laurel grille in the middle).

    Just curious, am I in the minority for not liking Shakotan? Is anyone not concerned about the lack of original cars in the future if all cars are to be converted into a Shakotan state?

    To me it reminds me of putting 24 inch dubs on an American car.

      Exactly what makes you think “in the future if all cars are to be converted into a Shakotan state”? For crying out loud, I’d bet not even 5 percent of the Skylines rock this look?

      And I for one am certainly not concerned. I wish they all looked like this and won’t give a flying crap the day there aren’t any original ones left.

      Friends don’t let friends drive stock. :)

      • John said:

        And by your rationale, why don’t all the American cars have 24″ wheels yet?!?

        Because everyone’s tastes are different. No need to worry yourself. :)

      • Tyler said:

        I agree not to worry about it because I have this feeling most of the shakotan cars were not paragons of cleanliness before the conversion anyway. There should always be low mile, showroom stock cars even if for no other purpose than documentation.

        And remember, for every donk you see there are 30 more awaiting a factory correct restoration.
