Back in Australia around the turn of the century when the internet was still pretty much useless for video, our easiest source of good content from Japan was the High Performance Imports series.

Another massive wave of nostalgia is coming soon as Ben at Otomoto, the original creator of the videos and former editor of HPI magazine, will be releasing all them on Youtube! Here is the first volume complete with countless drag GT-Rs, the Ricoh Racing 180SX and the mispronounced Japanese brand names we all love and remember!
