Another day, another trip down south for a car show in Japan. The Nagoya Exciting car show was recommended by my friend Colin to check out. This was a car show filled with every JDM fanboy’s dreams. Japanese racing cars from drift to time attack were in an attendance and so were the companies that built or sponsored them.
Wide RX-7 drift ready on a set of Enkei T6S.
The Endless FT86 rocking a blue panther livery on some Enkei PF01.
All of these Japanese company cars make rocking Enkei wheels that aren’t RPF1s look good.
This track Mercedes AMG GT was looking deadly at the show.
What’s cool in Japan is that they are super into sports compact motor sports. Walking around the show there were a ton of compact cars that were designed for the track.
Triplets of Abarths.
This wide E90 was looking mean on Work Meister M1R.
A rare sight to see in the States and ever rarer in Japan. A pristine GMC Delorean.
Crazy livery design on this Porsche by Rush Motor Sports.
Low riders in Japan?
S13 with an Odyvia front end.
Exotics left and right at this show, probably what makes this show exciting for the Japanese.
Didn’t know I could like a car with anime print on it, but this 86 proved me wrong.
Chaser dreams. Can’t wait for the 25 year rule in the States to lift for these cars to come over.
Be prepared to see a whole lot of GTRs from R32-R35s.
Some of the booths had extravagant setups and sold most of their products for cheap.
Origin Labo Chaser.
All of the Origin Labo cars were pretty awesome. Can’t believe these cars in Japan are like NASCAR cars to us in the States.
BRIDE seats for sale.
Not really sure what was going on here, but it was the only place to sit and kick it.
Japanese livery is so boss.
HRE wheels with the coolest truck/display at the show.
Pink never looked so right on this S14 on Work Equips.
That radius and fitment is too fucking cool.
They get crazy with body kits here in Japan even on Lambos.
STF garage S15.
That dragon is bedazzled on…
Top Secret R35.
D1GP judge and driver answering questions at the meet and greet.
Crazy they had a whole dealership setup, and salesmen to sell you cars at the show.
So, what’s it like to be a bad bitch? “Well…”
Ken Nomura just chilling at his booth.
I use to see the Pandora One RWB everyday when I worked at Illest, but seeing one from Japan made me fall in love with RWB Porsches all over again.
Especially when this one had such a clean paint job.
People were laughing their asses off when they saw Neel’s FTP shirt.
I guess they don’t like the police here too.
Japanese models look dangerous.
BN Sports kits are still king to me especially on these FDs
A little food court with street Japanese food.
Thank you Japan for once again leaving me in awe after a car event.
