When I was in high school, there was a huge scene of car people obsessed with customizing Honda cars, mostly Civics and Accords. And I assume this scene still exists. Maybe it peaked with Fast and Furious, but I guess it’s still around. I certainly still see plenty of Hondas with aftermarket body work, wheels, spoilers, mufflers, etc. Some of the custom jobs look good; many of them just look very shoddily assembled and amateurish. But obviously a lot of Honda people are interested in doing this.
But I never witnessed any similar customization culture for Toyota cars. Definitely there were and are a lot of people modifying Toyota 4x4s, which is what I had in high school, for off road use. But not the cars, really.
Why is this?
