east asian car culture

for some years i have seen on taiwan's streets this sort of tail light: silver casing studded with red lights. this look was a kind of thuggish car counter-cultural symbol: only bad boys modified their cars or scooters in this way. i suspect this style came from japan, as much of taiwan's pop culture does.

i guess that nissan drew the inspiration for this tail light's color scheme from this same street hood car culture.
