Back in ancient times, there was a small piece of land owned by some nobles that were located in the Anyang province. The name of the land was, “Land of the Winter Eagles.” The owner of the land was named Dong Bo Lie. He created the land after having a romance with Mo Yang Yu of the Mo Yang family. Dong Bo Lie and Mo Yang Yu had two children, Dong Bo Xue Ying, and Dong Bo Qing Shi. (TL note: Xue Ying means Snow Eagle and Qing Shi means Green Rock) When Xue Ying was eight, his family’s evil deeds were revealed and their uncle took Bo Lie away. Mo Yang Yu and his wife were captured and put into the Mo Yang family’s prison. In order to rescue his parents, Xue Ying practiced marksmanship all day, every day, and was rewarded with the Dragon Mount Building’s Iron Order.

The story gets its roots from the actual street racing that occurs on Tokyo's Shuto Expressway, one stretch of which is known as the "Wangan", literally meaning "bay side" (although it is generally used to refer to the freeway), the longest, straightest road in the entire country. Of course, there's also lots of traffic to contend with, including a fair number of heavy trucks. Because of this, the action is inherently hazardous, and wrecks are common. Blown engines are also a frequent hazard, especially with the extreme-high power engines. One day, Akio Asakura, a third year high school student, is driving his Fairlady Z (Z31) and is challenged by Tatsuya Shima, a doctor, in his black Porsche 964 Turbo (nicknamed the "BlackBird"). With a friend in the passenger seat and two girls in the back, Akio pitifully tries to win, but is defeated. Determined to become faster, he goes to the junkyard to buy parts for his car, when he sees a pristine, unscratched midnight blue Fairlady Z (S30) in the junkyard. Intrigued as to why such a machine is about to be junked, he buys it. He soon finds that the car is unnaturally fast due to a tuned L28 engine, bored and stroked to 3.1 liters combined with twin turbos, which produces 620bhp. He also finds that all of the car's previous owners had unfortunate accidents in it, starting with the first owner's death. The manga follows Akio's various encounters, though the central plot revolves around his constant battle with the BlackBird for superiority.
