DOING IT BANGKOK STYLE
The Thai tuning scene is a microcosm of modifying that borrows ideas from across the globe, stirs them together into its own melting pot, then creates unique and exciting things that the rest of us would never expect to see. The main focus is on Japanese rides – Civics, Skylines and S-body Nissans are particular favourites – and there’s a massive drag racing scene, with illegal street drags drawing in huge crowds. Diesel tuning is a big deal too. When it comes to street cars, Thai tuners really love to put carbon fibre all over everything; there’s a certain fondness for VIP builds, but the overarching headline story right now is widebody extensions. Keeping an eye on the big names, Rocket Bunny and Liberty Walk and the scene growing around them, Garage Unique and places like it are taking that vibe and recreating it in their own style.
