You do not need to label your car with VIP and JDM because you arent a Chaser, Aristo or a Civic. Just style your car with what you like and dont name it just have your own style. :quotes:

well i wanted to see clean cars...theres only a certain few cars on here that i like style wise...

i hated to use the term jdm but thats the TREND...clean, oem, simple.

as the creator i'll say i know what jdm is...im surrounded by jdm cars all the time... imported and "styled" hence why my car looks the way it does...

i wouldn't drive a neon if i had a choice but its given me no problems and i havent spent much money getting it too look how it does...

i hate using the term JDM with neons because they just dont belong together, but how else would you describe how these cars are styled...

like i said most cars on here just arent my cup of tea...mild drops and ugly rims, painted interior, body kits, etc... so i decided to just start this thread...the people that have posted know what i mean and thats who it was directed too.

if anything do you know what jdm means? dont you have the front and rear end of two import cars on your neon?

lol thats funny.. any car can be JDM... you have to have JDM mods.. you are not a JDM car because you got green wheels..
beleive me .. im NO EXPERT on any car related theme.. im just a show car guy and been in the car business since i could walk.. i know a thing or two.. but not everyhitng.. its funny to see the difference from forum to forum..
when i use to run my LEXUS show car the lexus forums would have this debate as well..

JDM has several interpretations.. but overall is ONE theme of a car.. just because there is several interpretations doesnt mean that they are all JDM.. thats like saying my car is JDM because i think it is because of air ride.. (its not a JDM car).. in my car club we have several JDM cars..

also the majority of the posted pics IMHO are JDM... think what you think.. tell me im dumb .. doesnt matter.. i have been doing car shows and been in the car scene (aftermarket since 2002) and been in the car business since my dad opened up his business in 1986. i have dealt with hundreds of shops and tens of thousands of customers.. everyone has an opinion but in the long run.. its ONE thing.

lol this is funny because.. i dont think i ever mentionsed my SHOW CAR being JDM.. lol.. thanks for pointing that out..

honestly.. im a big fan of JDM cars.. being that i love the whole VIP and JDM market..
just pointing out that some of those cars arent JDM.. however nice cars



ALSO.. the orange civic with the hood off.. is a JDM car... and a NICE ASS one as that.. very cleanly modded.. lots of JDM parts.. and VERY VERY CLEAN... the car is from tampa and doesnt get the credit it deserves.

lol i guess noone reads... I KNOW that my car isn't jdm...its a dodge neon lol...i know green wheels dont make it jdm...

green wheels are only jdm if they are a japenese brand...such as volk or work.


i should just change the title of the thread...i asked people not to shit on it but you always get idiots.

just say it's JDM inspired cars. simple as that.


people look at a certain style of car, and it inspires them to take what they see, and make it their own on the car they drive

LOL!

I came on here to lurk and I gotta post. Thanks for posting pics of my last two Neons. I just saw the one in the original post at a car show down here.

The owner isn't taking that great care of it. Oh well, it's not mine anymore.

Keep it up you guys!

Thats Chris (PA)'s car, and I believe other than the suspension and wing removal (used to have an AVS) the exterior of the car is bone stock. I can't speak for his engine I do believe he did a few things there. But yes....coilovers and thats about it.

when i see people arguing about what JDM is in here, it makes me think about how musicians (such as myself) argue about what genre of music a certain band fits into. ive heard people go on for post after post on music forums debating that shit. and quite frankly, who really cares? it is what it is, if you like the band, you like them, and you know it's either heavy music, acoustic, instrumental, whatever. those are my genres.

as far as this thread goes, if you want to come in here and be a nit picky little bitch about what JDM is, gtfo. i knew exactly what i would see when i saw the title of this thread; clean, functional, simple cars. and chances are, so did you, but you just felt like bitching about something. so come in and enjoy the pics of some of the cleanest 2gns and srt's around the boards and beyond, and shut up about jdm. if you want to nit pick and be obnoxiously technical with the term, maybe you should be a lawyer?

/end rant.

that being said, i love the japanese cars pictured in the thread and love the cleanliness i'm seeing with all the neons in the thread. keep the pics coming guys. i gotta get some new pics of the r/t to add to this thread. jdm ftw lawlz.

p.s, no offence to anyone, just saying it how it is. :roll:
