Default JDM Legends new shop

JDM Legends, A shop of car enthusiasts dreams. The place you feel like a child playing with your brand new matchbox cars again. You just get an overwhelming sense of joy walking into a shop like this, seeing all of these vintage cars being brought back to life by the mad scientist and shop manager Eric Bizek. I finally got a chance to go to their new shop location after a recent move, and I must say this location is way better and more centrally located than the last one. I arrive at what I think is the location and then immediately know for sure it is the place after seeing this low and amazing starlet.



I walk in the front door to see Eric busy working on a time attack Subaru making some final tweaks before the season starts for one of his customers cars and Ryan, his co-worker, rebuilding a set of carbs for an old skyline. I look to the left to be greeted by this beautiful scene...



and in the other corner



Then after taking a couple of pictures of these amazing cars I hear it, the heart racing sound of a vintage skyline starting up, and man I have to say it sounds intoxicating. I only wish Eric could let me take one for a spin, just the sound of it idling makes me start to think of racing it. And then it pulls in...



I can't resist to ask if we could put them all in a row and get a good ol family portrait of the 3 most premium vintage JDM cars in Utah, and he kindly obliges to my request.







Notice all of the sexy curves these vintage beauties had, one could only wish that modern cars had this much character...





After drooling over these cars for what seems like hours I decide to go check out the rest of the shop and see what it is all about. I see this beautiful wall of collected car parts that would make anyone happy to be hanging in their garage.
