Don your headbands, hang your friends out your side windows and get ready for Shakotan Boogie. In 1987 Japan apparently made a movie out of the manga that celebrates the bosozoku lyfe. Plot points include cross-cultural drag racing that ends in some hard-to-watch hakosuka and F-body carnage, but the parade of boso’ed cars is worth the suffering. There are more Japanese lowriders than you can shake a takeyari exhaust at — Soarers, Cedrics, Glorias, Crowns, Skylines, and even some other not-so-boso cars like an AW11 MR2 and Honda CR-X.
Anyone who can name all the cars in this clip will win either an Apple iPad or our eternal admiration (prize to be determined).
I’d rather have your eternal admiration!
I love MR2’s!! Not really diggin the park bench though. The only boso I see, is the one driving the Camaro! I also saw a couple of Celica XX’s that were pretty cool, and I saw several cars that are still around the scene today. In all this movie is a great example of the crazy, free lovin(and unsafe) nature of Japanese car culture.
Not enough conflict with the police.
Now naming all of the cars would be a challenge I’d happily accept… But if the prize is something non J-tin I’d pass this one! Who needs an iPad anyway? 😀
Someone mentioned that at 1:40 there is a bone stock VW beetle running in the background with the mob. Could it have been used as filler to make the mob even more impressive? 😛
I saw a Honda Prelude too!
