G'day everyone. My name is Daniel and I make videos of the old and interesting cars I find in Japan and Australia.

Kaido Racer & Street Car Event: Obaka-Tachi Custom Car Show

May 28, 2017

The name of this event in Japanese is, おバカたちのカスタムカーショー, which I believe translates to, Custom Car Show for Idiots. Good to see they have a sense of humour.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>

The story of it all

Me: My name is Daniel O'Grady, I'm Australian, and I've always loved cars.
Wasabicars: Back in 2012 I happened upon a junkyard filled with some 1970's US muscle cars. <See video below.>

Left to rot - Abandoned American muscle-cars in Japan

January 25, 2012

I usually spend my free time exploring castles, but that's not my only interest. I also like cars, especially from the 60's & 70's, especially with a V8 and extra especially when they are in unrestored condition.
