After some friends and I got done playing around taking photos on the expressway one night, we headed over to Shibaura parking area to see if there was anything going on. Daikoku was […]

. There wasn’t much going on tonight, so Yuta, Allan and I went to grab a drink at Tea Station; which is pretty standard at this point. Not sure why, but we all had our […]
Since there’s not too much left, I’ll go ahead and finish the rest of the pictures in this post. Like I mentioned before, the day just didn’t really unfold like a typical car show day for me, so I got very limited shots. I think most of these are going to be from around 6-7 pm in the evening, just as the sun was setting behind the hi-rises of downtown LA. This was also when a lot of the show cars were leaving, which made it nice to get some solitary shots of each. I’m always a little urked by how close together they park some of the cars; making it almost impossible to get a decent picture of them. Especially when you have a lot of open lot space, you can give each car another foot of room or so and it would be much better. I’ve never organized a car show before though so what the hell do I know? I’m sure there’s reasons for it. In a way I’m kind of glad I didn’t take many pictures, but rather enjoyed walking around and taking a close look at the cars – which is something I don’t often do. The lineup of Honda builds, organized by Joey Lee from The Chronicles, was pretty amazing. So in that sense, I’m glad I got a better look at them, instead of just taking pictures. I’m sure he’ll have massive coverage, so be sure to check it out. Click past the break for more.
. Random, but I wonder what happened to this car. I may have to research more… .

I apologize for my absence as of late. While I may have been invisible, I didn’t forget I ran a blog. In fact, I’ve been working on new graphic designs for some vinyl that will be available at the end of the month. I know I keep saying that, but I mean it this time. The more I looked at my previous designs, the less pleased I became with them. So while I toil away behind my monitor, I’ll let you soak up some eye candy at last month’s D1GP event in Odaiba. Let’s take a little walk through the pits past the break.
There is an unusual amount of controversy about the look of the Odyvia. Either you love it or you hate it; usually there is no in-between. In my opinion, the front end looks like a modern version of what the PS13 front end would look like if Nissan were to make the Silvia again. I especially like the look of the wide-body Spirit Rei aero, and what it does to the overall look of the car. I ran into the car at the It’s JDM Yo! meet – check out a few more pics past the break.
Sure, we all know Naoki’s purple/pink S13 coupe, but some aren’t as familiar with the S15 he was to drive in D1. This purpose built drift machine was fully race spec, and just as crazy looking as the older coupe. I wonder if he will be driving it in the new series,‘The Drift Muscle’? Check out the pics.
