Rocky Auto (ロッキーオート)

This is the workshop of famed, old-school Nissan tuner Watanabe Yoshiya. He has a reputation for some pretty epic engine-swaps in Skylines and FairladyZ's, with his creations being constantly featured in magazines as features as well as ads. He's recently opened his own museum packed with, you guessed it, hot Skylines and FairladyZ's.
