Lost Identity - Codename : Banzai KE70

Lurking from the ashes, peeking from the side of the road, this mean machine, a KE70 named Banzai, cruising proudly through the road of Kuala Lumpur (KL) with a mean stance and style, making attention to the crowd, giving the owner a proud feeling that can't be expressed by words.

This KE70 a.k.a Banzai by it's owner, Aizad had gone a long journey before become as nice as it looked now. Last 2 years before this, it just a plain KE70 that we saw at daily market that had been drove by our uncle. But, Aizad want to make Banzai as one of it's kind, so he started drafting the project for Banzai last 2 years. Now, what you see is the result or outcome of the project that had been planned by Aizad to his lovely Banzai.

Banzai is now rocking a special motor that had been customized according to Aizad's plan. Still rocking the original 4k engine but with special recipe inside. The carburetor also had been upgraded to Weber DGAV 32/36 type to make Banzai more powerful than other KE70. The oil filter also had been relocated and a custom oil cooler had been placed in front of the nice chrome bumper.

If you wondering, why the front looked weird than usual KE70, it is because Aizad had been modified the front look according the japanese style that known as Bōsōzoku. This style of modification is started from japan, and most of the hardcore old school car lover know about this kind of modification style. Sharknose (extended bonnet and fender), super low front lips, extended flared both front and rear fender, super lowered stance and high style ducktail is the characteristic of the Bōsōzoku style.

Beside the extreme exterior makeover, Banzai also rocking a set of SSR MK 2 rims. 13' x 6.5jj for front, and 13' x 7.5jj for rear. For make the rims fitment looked super great, Aizad had placed some spacers for the rim to sits nicely beside the flared fenders. At the back, a twin boso pipes had been connected straight from the exhaust pipes that sound really-really loud. It also spits fire when Aizad push the button from the dashboard. It also has an extended boso pipe that been used when Banzai joining any events or convoys.

Aizad had told that there will be some more future projects for his lovely Banzai. But, the current look of Banzai had make Aizad feel proud when cruising around KL. A lot of hard work and money had been spent for make Banzai look as nice as it is. Congrats to Aizad that he had make Banzai, one of it's kind in Malaysia. Hope that we will see more Bōsōzoku machine around Malaysia's automotive scene.
