So, last satuday I decided to joint a car meeting with my friend Shota from Nara street team. I had the pleasure to be part of that team. We are based in Kansai area, specially in Nara so I am probably the only one living in Kyoto and being part of a Nara team by the way. I left Kyoto around 7.30pm and I took the shortest way to the reach the place where I meet Shota and I friend who drive a Infinite G37, then we moved to the car meeting spot located somewhere in a highway in Mie-ken prefecture. As usual there were a bunch of car fanatics and as you may well know, Kansai area is about stance, USDM and Hellaflush. I took pictures of many car that were at the events, but I specially focus on those cars I like it.
This one was one of the most admired cars in the meeting, a USDM Infinity G37. Left hand drive car driving on Work Wheels. Is not usual to spot USDM car in Japan if they are not Hot Rod’s or Muscle Cars.
Roadster are still alive in the country in case you don’t know, they maybe not the most popular car over here but many people love them and I have to say I like them a lot and they are so fast and also fun to drive.
Another surprise to me was to find that Mini Cooper S GP Works rocking BBS. The yellow headlight just make the car look superb.
You maybe not used to spot the Toyota Vitz sedan in car meeting’s. But the Vitz’s/Yaris is the sedan version of the Toyota daily city car and here there is one on a superb stance. I
This particular car is becoming very popular in the region and telling you the truth I like so much when people choose rare cars as a project cars.
Such an spot. A Top Secret body-kit in that awesome Toyota Supra. Was very annoying to see how people didn’t even care much about standing in front of a Top Secret Supra, but you then say to yourself; well this may happened because this is Japan and nothing is special enough.
Here are a couple of examples about the Honda culture. And those are different cars.
About the the Honda culture… what to say. No, definitely. Is not everything about Kanjo Race Car’s. In fact many Civic’s are built under the stance culture and many of them are EK9. This one above had detached spoiler, rear lip and fitted with a B20, and yes the VIN was a real EK9.
No more to say every time I go to a japanese car meeting a have a surprise. Maybe because the people I met, maybe because the cars I found, sometimes only because the experiences I have driving the japanese roads. See you in the next meeting.
