So.... maybe someone might have an answer because i;ve been asking around... and still havent quite understood it yet.

WHy are there dolls, balls, bears, monkeys, or etc. hanging on the rear end bumper of an JDM car?!?! I mean maybe because i live So Cal. But still i think its growing trend with no real answers on why or who just started it. S

Dont get me wrong but i think it's is really degrading for the car. Especially when i saw some Subby's with it.

Here is a pic of what i mean by what's hanging!

Didn't some drifter hang a charm to prevent rain or something like that, and everyone else just saw it, copied it, played it out, and down right murdered it?

its pretty much what endgame said most normally called by alot of "tuners" a drift charm....which i personally think is ridiculous considering most of these are hanging on the bumpers of hondas....which cant drift

Trunk Monkey's making his escape!

On the other side of the continental US, the popular thing in my area is for the huge gas guzzling trucks (ford f250 or ram 2500 / bigger) is to have a set of balls hanging off the trailer hitch.

edit: communist nazi photobucket people think balls hanging off a truck violates user terms of use

I don't get it either.

When I was in Japan a number of years ago, I purchased a Shinto charm for safe driving at a shrine. Its a little arrow with a suction cup attached and a small scroll on the arrow.

Yes, driving is ingrained into their religion. I think these things once had something to do with it, now they're just goofy.

I sold a new Mercedes E-Class to a VERY cute girl from Thailand...

Yesterday I saw it parked at the market with THREE 1 ft tall teddy bears (1 from each rear clothes hangers and 1 on the back shelf!). Yeah, that looked real 'classy'!!!


:eek:mg:

It started as hanging something that you don't like behind the tire of a rear wheel drive car (usually/obviously drifters), making a statement that " I do burnouts on teddy" lol... It's became a fad that's way out of control like the green and yellow beginner drivers sign that the same civic has in the back window...

One explanation:
teddy hanging from the rear = JDM Fanboy

That's to make it even clearer that the driver of the huge truck is compensating for something.
