This Just in From the ’80s

While grandJDM might generally be focused on the days of 60s and 70s Japanese steel, there’s no shortage of great looking boxes from the 80s that deserve a bit of a look in.

The boso/garuchan/yankee style is an especially keen genre for these cars, and lofreq over at the OldSchool.co.nz forums has an ongoing project happening to turn his ’87 Mark II into a low-ridin’ guard-scrapin’ pipe-extrudin’ boso beast. Reading the project thread has been a treat, so check it out.

Incidentally, what do you all think of the boso look? Awesome? Hilariously awesome? Or a freakin’ eyesore?
