I was spending my day off with a visit to the world renowned Tsukuba Circuit and hadn't made any specific plans for the evening so I was excited to hear from Nagahama-san, the owner of N-Style in Gunma, that I could stop by if I wasn't up to anything. Of course I would be more than happy to!
N-Style is tucked away in the countryside of the aformentioned prefecture but it didn't tkake me long to reach after I had packed up my gear and left Tsukuba. I arrived at the garage a short while later and Nagahama-san was already outside tinkering away with some of the cars on hand. He has had his business since 2004 and over that time has built a very loyal customer base. But these are not just paying, car loving folk. They become friends and part of the N-Style Family.
In terms of stlye he in Influenced by 'Tsuraichi' which is the Japanese term for 'Hellaflush', and in driving by none other than Daigo Saito. He likes the car not only to look agressive in stance but also when being driven to the fullest around nearby Nikko or any other track. Hip-Hop and J-pop is his music of choice and will often be listening to his choice of era when studying over the cars being dropped off to him be those wanting the N-Style touch, whether they be returning or new devotees to the 'Beige' cause.
Find below some shots from the evenings get together and there will certainly be more from N-Style to come on the site in the future as I'll look to see what new and exciting projects Nagahama-san gets to work on!
