JDM Parade in Daikoku Parking Area

In Part 1 of this entry we have encountered a gathering of Ferrari and other supercar owners appreciating their magnificent rides, combined value of which probably exceeded GDP of a small country. 
  
But as the day went by, supercars were slowly getting replaced by the products of local market.



A lot of very interesting and historically significant rides could be seen with their respective owners chatting nearby, or still inside, waiting for their mates to join to fun.

Obviously suitable to any JDM scene, almost none of the cars preserved its stock look.
Some choosing to portray the racing heritage,

While some went for something totally different.

But of course, the real JDM scene is more than just show, as with this classic NSX, there is plenty of go as well. 

As sun began to set more JDM stars began to appear, such as this group of R34 Skylines.

Nearby was this slammed Z33 with custom paint, exhaust, and after market rims.  Other than that the car looked stock, but it makes me wonder what's on the inside, as it looked and sounded brutally fast.

There were lots of cars with Veilside aero parts, such is this Z34 sporting a wide body kit, carbon fiber hood, and quad exhaust.  |

This NSX is pretty far from its stock form as well.  Hope it has the performance to match its insane appearance.

Now this is something I've never seen before, not just one, but four RX-7's with Veilside Fortune kit.

Which was obviously made famous by Han in Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift.

This wide-body kit completely reshapes the RX-7 to the point at which it is almost unrecognizable.

It does give the RX7 appeal of a supercar, and also looks very modern as well.

Going back to the lot, there were many more Veilside cars, but obviously it wasn't the only brand present, with lots of owners displaying their shining beauties in full swing.

And if it shines it doesn't matter what it is, anything unique is welcome and appreciated.

It was a great experience to spend time at this gathering, looking at different cars and watching the owners interact, show off, and generally have a great time. 

Well, there we have it, as it was time to go back, I had a feeling of excitement and confidence that, despite the ongoing recession, high automobile taxes and rising costs of fuel, car culture in Japan while maybe not as mainstream as it was before, is definitely alive and healthy, and as long as it is, this blog will keep going.

Thank you for reading, everyone, please enjoy the rest of this pictures and don't forget to share, comment and follow this blog.

Honda is Feeling the Beat

While I personally believe that "Beat" is not ideal name for any car,
Honda's 2 seater version of K-car has proven to be very successful. Even long after the discontinuation of the model, the car maintained its fan base and following.



2 years ago, the fans were left to speculate about the future of the Beat model as Honda displayed a concept compact 2 seater at 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

Little was heard since then until recently, when Honda unveiled a Concept S660, which is whole new version of the 2 seater that follows the same formula. 
 Small sub 1000cc engine in the middle, rear wheel drive, and a lot of fun.
What makes the S660 more appealing, however is how modern it looks.  All proportions are great, lines are striking and sporty, and it sits just about right.
On the inside, things are even more exciting as you are greeted with overall stylish interior with thick sporty flat bottom steering wheel , a digital shift timing indicator, and nice leather seats.
What makes this car special is the gadgetry.  From this LFA inspired digital instrument panel
 To this touch screen futuristic climate control.

Overall, this little thing can turn into a very fun and exciting machine. Let's just hope that Honda doesn't change much for the production model.
 Apart from the S660 Honda will be displaying their usual variety of boxy looking cars,

As well, as the most recent version of the magnificent NSX with fully functional interior.

The car indeed looks superb and I can't wait to see the production model to hit the streets.

Tokyo Motor Show will be held from November 22 in Odaiba area of Tokyo with several of automotive events around happening the show.  Of course, Tokyo Car Parade will be there to cover, so stay tuned.

Ferrari Parade at Daikoku Parking Area

Every auto enthusiast in Japan knows Daikoku Futo parking area, every car nut in Tokyo has been there many times , and now sometimes it seems that it has become the ultimate destination.  Maybe because all other highways are clogged with 20 to 50 kilometer traffic jams full of minivans and Eco cars trying to make it out of the metropolis for that precious weekend getaway, all enthusiasts get to enjoy a long stretch of open road to meet up here and chat about latest mods, upcoming shows or how bad the coffee upstairs is.

Nonetheless, Daikoku has become the epiphany of car culture in Japan, and even though I don't own a car I try to get there as often as possible.



Days like this define the true nature of Tokyo Car Parade as Daikoku Parking area, while being completely surrounded by worlds most advanced highway system has turned into a mega car show where everybody appreciates everything with an engine,

Regardless whether it is Italian Exotic,

German mega machine,

Japanese insane tuner,

Or American muscle.

Even if you have half the number of wheels, you are still welcome to showoff your ride.

Especially, if it's something like this!

During  one of my latest drive-abouts I was lucky to stop by twice to witness a gathering of completely different types of people with their passion for completely different types of cars. Hopefully I will re-create the best moments and the atmosphere of the day by making a two part contribution by dividing the day and night visits into two posts. (Part 2 can be found here)

When I got there in the morning, I thought I went through some wormhole and ended up on Italian race track as the lot was filled to capacity with Ferrari's. 

There I saw Ferrari's from most generations:

With plenty of old ones

A lot of new ones,

With occasional rare,

And very Exclusive,

And a lot of them tuned. 

Why modify a Ferrari? Because he can.

One lucky owner arrived in his brand new F12 Berlinetta, and I was fortunate to have my camera on me so I could pick out some of the details of this magnificent machine.

The proportions of this car are truly amazing with very long bonnet blending elegantly with the sides emphasizing all the functional curves and lines.

The car itself is smaller in all proportions than the 599 it replaces.  The short wheelbase just gives it that extra sportiness and aggressiveness.

The front is a truly unique design with vertically shaped headlights and large grille adding to the very aggressive look.  The whole car just screams "Get out of my way, I have too much power!"

As in 458 every single curve, every single line is there for a purpose. It channels air exactly where it should: to either reduce drag, add down force or cool components, but what makes it a true Italian masterpiece is that every single piece of the air channeling puzzle is absolutely beautifully designed and blends perfectly with the rest.  

Closer look shows the beautiful 20 inch alloys wrapped in 255/35ZR20 and 315/35ZR20 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, with massive 398mm front and 360 rear carbon ceramic brake rotors behind.

The owner chose all red interior, and while many may not agree with his taste it's hard not to appreciate the quality of the finish of ever component of this interior.

At this moment, the owner returned, started the amazing symphony of Ferrari's V12 and took off, followed by his mate driving this beautiful white with black accent 458 Italia.
There were a lot more Ferrari's in this event and each had it's own story, but we have to move on, as there is part 2 full of JDM machines.  Thank you for reading, please enjoy more photos below and don't forget to comment, share, and follow!
