Encounter: Seek and You Shall Find – A FIT

.

I can’t even remember what day it was, but last month we swung by Seeker on a whim to see what they had cooking.  If you’re not familiar with Seeker, well, click the link.  They have slowly become one of Japan’s most well known Honda tuning companies, and are creators of all things orange.  The company is headed up by a younger individual and retains much of a grass roots feel to it; especially considering the shop is a little triangle shaped building on what could possibly be the tiniest piece of land in Tokyo.  With that said, you may need to do a little, ahem, ‘seeking’ to find the place somewhere around Suginami.  Once you find it though you’ll be treated to some nicely built cars, and a friendly staff.  Check out a few more shots of the Fit past the break.

Encounter: Stance Lab x Memory Fab E-Class Mercedes

I don’t get the chance to attend many car shows here because my work has me busy on weekends quite often, but every once in awhile I can sneak away and can attend.  Honestly, I don’t even like car shows that much, I prefer motor sport events, but I’m glad I got the chance to go to AutoCon this year because there were a number of great builds I’ve been missing out on.  Over the past couple years, the US has really stepped up in regards to build quality compared to Japan.  This car really has nothing to do with Japan, or racing for that matter, but for some reason I couldn’t stop looking at it.  Whether it was the Carlsson body kit, the prototype AirRex air-suspension, or the custom, stepped lip BBS from Memory Fab; it doesn’t really matter because the end product is beautiful.  Click past the break for more on this build.
