From the moment you arrive in Kuala Lumpur, you see nothing but Protons and Peroduas. But in the right place, at the right time and suddenly you are overwhelmed by what you can see. But once in these little oasis areas you feel the joy of seeing hundreds of JDM cars packed together. A little slice of Japanese automotive heaven in hot and humid Kuala Lumpur. From this clean Mitsubishi Evolution VI to an immaculate workshop, which we will be showing more of later, Kuala Lumpur has it all. Check out the wheels on that R34.

My very good friend and sometime coworker Jeremy Booth was at Meihan Sports Land with me when we went and I had no idea but he was busy clicking off photos with his mobile phone the whole time we were out on the track.
