Winter needs to end asap. This video of VAG Event 2013 brings us back to the middle of show season. This is one of the best videos I’ve seen that captures the ambiance and atmosphere of a car show.
We’ve been in contact with Tomochika Shibata for a few years now. He was one of our first Japanese fans to comment on our site. It felt awesome having some fans overseas. He recently had the opportunity to go to this year’s Tokyo Autosalon aka the coolest car show in Japan. So I asked him to send along a few photos.
326Power’s insane GS. Static, obviously.
The Roberuta F40 has already made the internet blog rounds.
Of course they’d have an E30 touring. Love the 90′s feel to this car.
Kin Jong Un?
Definaetly one of my favourite Japanese rides this year. Bee Dragon’s Nissan Y33 Cima.
For those that know me, they know that I am ALWAYS at shows but for some reason NO ONE has ever seen me in a car at all. For ~3 years the boys (especially Gill) have been pushing me to have a car worthy of going to shows with and most importantly, H20i. Well after all that wasted time I have finally decided to “build” something. Now, I hate using the word build because really I’m not building anything, I’m mainly going for wheels, suspension, a couple cosmetic things to make it look different and that’s it. So the first thing on my list was a car, now I posted about 2 years ago trying to figure out what car I should get. It was between the E36 M3 and the MB 190E Cosworth. Obviously due to CPT I’ve got neither and now I have ended up with the MK4 of BMW’s the E36 318is. Overall I am happy with this car itself. The E36 is a completely different feel then any other car I have ever driven in my life. Now that the car has been decided I wanted to go with a theme for it not just stance. After long talks with Kristoff, Steve and Gill we decided that it would be a “Motorsports” theme of some sort. So finding the perfect wheels to really complement this theme was going to be difficult.
The first image is my goal. Front splitter, hood bra, Autosrada Modenas, BC Racing coils. Level 1 scene points.
The second being the wishlist. The above plus canards, rear diffuser, big exhaust, half cage, Bride seats, Nardi wheel, and BTCC era decals. Also battle scars from Shannonville or Mosport DDT. Level 3.4 scene points.
