Event: Nisei Showoff 2012 V.2

.

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.

Event: D1GP お台場 Pits

.
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.

Close Up: Mastermind Odyvia

.

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.
