Learn more about the Best Cars to Modify. For generations, people have been modifying cars all around the world, but the most significant car scenes since the '50s have been America, Japan, and Germany. The joyful post-war America is where modifying cars really has its origins. While the economy grew in the 1950s, hot-rod culture flourished. By the 1960s, baby-boom kids were teens with money in their pockets and a desire for speed as muscle vehicles poured off Detroit's assembly lines in their numbers. The rising demand for personalization was fueled by nocturnal racing and cruise culture.

American car modifications are still common, but in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the second wave of the modern tuner movement concurrently started in southern California and Japan. Small, very efficient Japanese automobiles were suddenly in high demand in the United States as well due to quickly rising fuel prices and tightening EPA regulations, especially in California with its sizable Asian immigrant population. Both countries' tuners started customizing these cars, and they haven't stopped since.

Germany is another country where some of the best cars to modify come from. Since many years ago, legendary brands like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Porsche have been recognized as some of the best automobiles in the world.
