Hong Kong-based SILLY THING‘s automotive journal Blackbird has launched a brand new endeavor: “Shop Talk,” a new web series that’s set to explore the relationship between car and driver. For the very first installment, the Blackbird team travelled to Tokyo to highlight none other than NEIGHBORHOOD founder — and well-known auto enthusiast — Shinsuke Takizawa. Specifically, the episode highlights Takizawa’s recently restored 1932 Ford Roadster — an eight-year labor of love that the designer discovered in the United States. Here, “Shop Talk” offers some rare insight into the NEIGHBORHOOD founder’s build methodology, which reflects his own personal aesthetic, and a chance to get up close and personal with the details of an automobile that’s more than eight decades old.
