Twisted Metal Japan

A dekotora truck (or decoration truck) is another frightening example of what a car enthusiast can achieve with enough time, money, and dedication. These costly custom rigs spare no expense when it comes to extra large bumpers, steps, ornaments, rockets, and neon lights. Like an Autobot that’s cannibalized every shiny bit of metal in the city, these beastly dekotora trucks are made from countless parts and pieces from other trucks and vehicles to make them look more striking.

Above: According the Wikipedia, the dekotora truck boom was kick started by the film series Truck Guys
