JDMphasis... Innovation over Imitation
To select automotive enthusiasts, "JDM" is more than just an acronym for Japanese Domestic Market. JDM is not simply rare parts. It is a way of life. A culture. A modus vivendi. JDM is a lifestyle.
Rules? Here are my rules: What can be done with one substance must never be done with another. No two materials are alike. No two sites on earth are alike. No two buildings have the same purpose. The purpose, the site, the material determine the shape. Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless it's made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail. A building is alive, like a man. Its integrity is to follow its own truth, its one single theme, and to serve its own single purpose. A man doesn't borrow pieces of his body. A building doesn't borrow hunks of its soul. Its maker gives it the soul and every wall, window and stairway to express it.
When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back.

...I consider myself a rather sincerely devoted enthusiast. I pride myself on the research, time, and money that go into my projects, as well as the people with whom I surround myself to provide service, guidance, and advice... Modifying my cars is a bit more than a hobby to me. It is a passion.I have been extremely lucky. This blog was started as a result of encouragement and support from a few people in the industry with whom I have been fortunate enough to build solid relationships. And better; friendships. At the same time, I have had some bad experiences. This has allowed me to gain a proper perspective. I believe it is important to associate one's self with those people who care just as much about you and your project as they do about putting a dollar in their pocket. These are the people who enhance the industry. Those networking practices are what builds the tuning car culture. That is the passion that fuels the industry. That is the sort of fellowship that makes this industry special and unique. That is what defines the industry we love.
