Hmm I think I can help with this topic. I grew up in Yokosuka Japan, was there from 1979 to 1987. I sorta lived the whole train handle deal. I think different folks did it for different reasons but I recall it originating with the need to demonstrate how 'Crazy" of a driver you were. It was kind of a Japanese boso mentality thing and may not translate well... I started seeing train handles inside cars periodically when I first arrived in Japan and they became more common as time went on. The message a train handle sent then was "the driver is so damn crazy that handles are needed" and it also sent the message you had the balls to actually snag a handle from a train. Pretty rebellious stuff for the time. There were a few different ways to show you were a player on the streets: one small purple light under the back of a car was a sure sign, as were train handles in the window. My recollection is that the handles eventually moved outside so it was more obvious you were a rebel/racer/player and the handles wouldn't get you hassled by the cops like a purple light would. I actually still have my OG train handle that was acquired from a train in 1984, and did time in my Skyline:

I have been lurking here for a while now as I am considering buying an older Japanese car for a project...

Yeah I'm a little worried about it hitting the glass during "spirited" driving. If it does, I might end up moving it elsewhere. Haven't had it in the car long enough to see what the passenger thinks about it though lol. Will report back once I find out.

Type in "JDM subway ring".. there's a guy on our forum posting some now.

Yeah, this thread is old but great for newbies of "bosozoku" or peeps who want to know the origin of these things.
