Chrome Galore – Japanese Dekotora Art Trucks

I always thought Rap Artists were chromed out and had way too much bling but as it turns out, I have been wrong all these years. Our good friends in the far east (Japan) have been pimping out their trucks since the 70’s when a series of ten movies called Truck Guys came out. The films featured a costumed trucker who drove all over Japan in his decorated truck. The movie became very popular and the art of Dekotora Trucks began soon after. Dekotora Trucks is an abbreviation for “Decoration Truck”. The modern versions of the Dekotora Trucks have a lot of influence from Gundam as can be seen in the pictures below.

Hi Guys, I’d like to take the time to thank you for reading some info about me. My mission here as a writer at Unfinished man, is to entertain and inform on all things, from cars and gadgets, to reviews and life. I have a Bachelor in business but never really enjoyed school. I’d much prefer to spend time working on Unfinished Man than spending my days working long hours in some stuffy office. I love green tea and pistachios and my favourite fruit is pomegranate (weird I know). I hate the water but love nature, especially the nature here in my adopted country of Canada.
