Heyo. Welcome to grandJDM, a website devoted to classic (and usually modified) Japanese cars. JDM is an acronym for Japanese Domestic Market, a term which technically refers to any product sold in Japan but not elsewhere – for example, the Honda Stream (as far as we know!) or the multitude of kei cars you might see in any Japanese city. Conversely, EUDM means European Union Domestic Market, and USDM… Well, you get the picture.
These days however, JDM has become a popular catch-all term for just about anything that has an origin in Japan – especially cars.
So, what’s the point? grandJDM is all about sharing an appreciation for old skool JDM. Vintage. Classic. Retro. Any Japanese car older than 1980 – so long as it’s been loved and cared for – is welcome here.
So buckle in – if your old skool JDM is equipped with seatbelts – and enjoy the ride!
