A research and documentary movie about the sub-culture and modi ed Tofaş cars in Turkey. I have considered the modify issue as a rebellious movement in society. Tofas, founded in Turkey in 1968 under the auto license of the Italian brand Fiat “Fabrica Italiana Automobili Torino”, was the first private automobile firm in Turkey. Tofas is the abbreviation for Turk Otomobil Fabrikası Anonim Sirketi “Turkish Automobile Factory Inc”

There is a variety of reasons for modifications applied to these cars. Amongst the most significant is that the lower-income group wants to assert itself within the higher economic classes. The most visible public area in which these two sections of society come together is the road. These automobiles that have become the individual’s means of personal expression can be seen in extraordinary transformations.
