Liberty Walk's Wataru Kato runs a tuning shop that specializes in Lamborghinis. He owns a Ferrari F40 LM. He wants to bring the sensations of maximum automotive culture to a distracted youth. What's his favorite car? A four-door that cost around $1000.

He still owns and cherishes the old sedan, along with a few other home-market gems. The hand-riveted fenders and vintage alloy wheels seem a world away from Liberty Walk's high-grade flash and occasional silliness, but the enthusiasm that runs through all of it is undeniable.

Kato-san understands: It's not so much what you can buy, it's where your heart is.
