Odaiba Decks, my last stop for the cold cold night before the start of the Tokyo Auto Salon. This is real Tokyo street car culture, this is the Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet. Organised by Super Street magazine, Hardcore Tokyo and All That Low Japan.
I have decided to split up this event’s writeup into two post as having every image i intend to show on one page might be overkill for those on mobile devices.
With the Tokyo Auto Salon set to showcase some crazy machinery and amazing show cars, it’s still always fresh and interesting to see the vehicles real Tokyoites (& non Tokyoites) choose to roll in. And from the license plates we saw, plenty of attendees showed up from all nearby parts of Japan.
Unicorns to all of pretty much everyone in Singapore, these two NSXs parked up early representing Honda’s finest efforts back in the early 90s.
More VTEC love.
There were also plenty of R32s lying in wait. With these becoming legal for import into the US, many of them were sporting “Y” (Yankee) plates. These vehicles belong to members of the U.S. military stationed in Japan and i’m guessing, they will be shipping those GTR32s back home once they’ve finished their tour.
How do you like your San-ni?
In a sea of modified cars, a stock looking R32 does garner quite a bit of attention. There’s that “Y” plate once again. Sigh…
There were also many Hachirokus around.
More Hachis than you can shake a stick at.
All manner of shapes and shades…
…Beat up or cleaned up, they are here.
The cars just kept streaming in throughout the time i was there and i promptly followed this Hakosuka up to the second level.
Where it parked up right next to a glorious Sunny truck.
Check out the slightly off-color tint showcasing some flame graphics. Awesome.
The red Sunny truck had a friend on the lower level with it’s bonnet opened up showcasing a nicely built little engine.
On the topic of nostalgic machines, there were a few representatives of Detroit Iron.
Can you feel the old school rumble?
Only in Japan.
I really have no idea what this is but it sat really low and it was really wide.
There were a couple of Euro mobiles around but the night was ruled by JDMs.
A very cool USDM styled E36 Compact.
There was plenty of Nissan love.
Some of the lovin was a little bit more “unique”.
Each one a reflection of the owners’ taste, but no hating going around. This is Japan.
Sweet and clean S13 Silvia was lovely.
With so many cars to capture, it was pretty much impossible to showcase all that were present that night, this meet totally blew my mind, it was wild and just madness. Pure madness, which will continue in Part 2. (Soon! I promise!)
