Just a few pics from a local car show.
Second half of my ride-specific pics.
Oh look, the perfect car for everything, aka RS4 Avant.
S class rocking a full Lorinser kit!
Japan has some strange cars, but never would have expected a modded XKR! Looks like it would have come straight out of a catalog from the late 90's.
Tokyo is definitely the place to be for some perfect condition Euro classics!
This 901 seems more fitting going to a meet at Venice Beach than cruising Tokyo, but it works there too!
Admiring the beautiful bikes in this city when suddenly a wild Dodge Ram van appears!
American cars are far from popular in Japan, but whenever you spot one, it's always an interesting model.
Something timelessly classic about the Toyota Century.
Shy little guy
I think I'm in love...
And on the very last night, near our place, I finally ran into a proper R34 GT-R, though I spotted some interesting mods. It has some aggressive venting on the passenger side of the bumper but not the other side. But then it's also rocking Endless calipers and what appears to be BBS RE-MG wheels (!!!), so who am I to judge?
Because legendary cars ought to have the appropriate "footwear". The Kenmeri is probably my favorite I've seen so far, with or without Hayashis.
Car enthusiasts tend to be nocturnal creatures. Yeah most of the fun stuff happens when the sun is out, but it's when the light goes to sleep when the real magic happens. That moment when a motor turns over for the first after weeks of prep work. That moment when you get it on a dyno and hear it roar after its long slumber. And that moment when you look at the curves and numbers flickering on the screen and think "Oh yeah, this is going to be really fun."
Oh hey there.
While roaming around Holland Park, we found Kyoto Garden, a zen garden complete with Koi fish and water falls.
Animals here can get pretty nosy.
Peacocks... they're basically turkeys dressed in drag. As I've often seen in gardens, these guys were just roaming about where ever they pleased.
The weather and surroundings offered a great opportunity for some folks to do a photo shoot.
Even Michelle got in on the action. #selfie
After leaving the park, we started heading towards a nearby museum. On the way, we spotted a fewer rare cars including a Spec V.
And a real Exige S, though the wing and front splitter don't match. Owner likely added the newer wing to an older model; looks good!
Astons are almost a daily sighting here, not that I think I'll ever get tired of their looks.
Because race car.
