Wataru Kato, Liberty Walk

Back in the 80’s or 90’s, Liberty Walk was started by the “Kaido Racers”. Those days, the Japanese street fighters would build cars with wide body frames, extended fenders and even no bumpers to give out an impression that, “I am dead serious here”. The bigger the better, the louder the better. This culture was loved by most yet hated by some. Wataru Kato, founder of Liberty Walk has taken this old school “Bosozoku” style and adapted it to the finest automobiles in the world.
