Enkei RPF1 + Ford Maverick = JDMUSDM?

FORD MAVERICK on ENKEI RPF1
When I think of a Ford Maverick, I think of the 70’s compact car that sort of looked like a big Ford Pinto. I used to see them around when I was a kid, but now they are nearly extinct in my area. Add some lowering and some Japanese Road Wheels [ Enkei RPF1 ], and a total transformation has occured. – Enkei RPF1 on Ford Maverick

clean lines, low stance, and some nice and wide Watanabe Type R’s. The best part of this Supra is that it actually gets driven; in the twisties and on the track. – Toyota Supra MA61 on Watanabe R-Type Wheels

Adam Carolla Camel GT Datsun 280z s30

What a beautifully restored s30

 

“Scattered throughout the room, bathed in natural light from large windows, we found a Datsun Camel GT pace car built by Bob Sharp parked next to a Paul Newman / Bob Sharp Racing IMSA 300ZX. A few feet away, sitting next to the tool cabinets with its rear wheels riding on rollers to ease movement around the shop, was a custom Datsun Roadster 1600 racer with radically-flared fenders in bright orange. (Adam hasn’t raced each of these, and he may never, but he currently participates in his share of on-track competitions in his stunning Bob Sharp Datsun 610.)”
