JDM Legends brings vintage Japan to the U.S. – Click above to watch video after the jump

Trey Cobb, the founder of Cobb Tuning, has a love for vintage Japanese automobiles. In 2009, Cobb and fellow Japanese car junkie Eric Bizek decided to build a company around that love affair and JDM Legends was born. Based in Utah, JDM Legends imports, restores, services and sells classic Japanese cars.

The team has already brought a 1973 Toyota Celica, 1970 Datsun 510 and a handful of early Nissan Skyline models back to life. More cars are planned for the future and two of the Skylines are currently being offered for sale.

JDM Legends had someone stop by with a video camera and capture the cars currently in the garage. Though the film is a bit slow, the cars look particularly stunning in high-definition. Hop the jump to watch the clip.

      Great Promo vid even if this post felt a bit like a tuner company ad.

      That 510 is on my list of "top 10 reasons to learn how to drive a manual with my left hand"...

      "A bit slow"?

      What, because it doesn't have MTV-style 0.2 second cuts?

      Sheesh.

      Japanese car designs of that era seem to be inspired by American cars...or do i have that totally backwards?

      Beautiful cars. Glad to see that they are well-loved.

      Early Mazdas like the RX3 were good too.
        • 4 Years Ago
        ohh yes! I have a weak spot for older Mazdas.

      That Skyline GT is awesome.

      Only the most demented closetcase otaku-weaboo would like the disgusting music that ruined this video. After muting it though was fun looking at the cars.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Totally agree with you on that. The shrill vocals in the music I could really do without.
        Otherwise, the work and effort put into keeping these vintage JDM machines looking tasteful is top notch.

        The musician is Swedish (Lykke Li), not Japanese.
        • 4 Years Ago
        You mean only closet case otaku listen to swedish alt rock?! Learn something new everyday.

      I actually liked the music.... the cars were epic
      • 4 Years Ago
      very nice.

      The original Z cars were great. Nissan should think about making a retro styled Datsun.
