Shop Tour: Built By Legends

If you love JDM classics, you're going to love Built By Legends - that is, if you aren't already familiar! Back in 2001, they were responsible for producing some of the most beloved pieces of Japanese automotive legacy media ever, the Best MOTORing VHS tapes. Meet the dynamic duo behind the vision that knows no boundaries - Masa and Katsu, the founders of Built By Legends. Although both hailing from Japan, their upbringing took them far and wide, with Masa calling Canada home, and Katsu immersing himself in the cultures of the UK and Australia. Upon returning to Japan, their shared passion drove them to forge a connection between Japan and the global stage through cars.

Today, Built By Legends is responsible for some of the nicest, and coolest resto-mod JDM vehicle builds the world has ever known, all from their humble shop in Saitama, Japan. PASMAG Senior Contributor, Mikey Dang, takes us inside the shop for a personal tour and chat.
