Aiming at a unique synergy derived from the company’s vast experience in both motorcycle and automotive R&D programs and manufacturing, the conceptual study model is powered by a 1,500cc six-cylindered horizontally opposed engine developed for motorcycle application. The aerodynamic exterior and interior design inspired by a Formula racer were then carried over for the J-VX, an evolutionary version that made its debut at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show.

This guy (name unknown) painted his 1966 Corvair in his driveway for $50! The ingredients included two quarts of your favorite Rustoleum (yep, the stuff you paint your grill, patio furniture or lawnmower fenders with etc), some mineral spirits and foam rollers. Yup. The man painted his ride with foam paint rollers! All his work was done in his driveway and his biggest worry was bugs getting fatally stuck in each of the seven coats he ended up applying. Fortunately sanding took them right out.
