As shown on the opening pic, this is Takuto-san’s one-of-a-kind Toyota bB.

When slammed, stanced and rusted out just ain’t enough, it’s time to break out the concrete! Yes this car has concrete grafted on. Probably not good for the fuel economy but it sure does look crazy. Made even more madmax-ish with that one-eye-jack projector headlamp.

Speaking of custom, engineering students from NATS took an old Suzuki Mighty Boy and made an E30 M3 out of it.

A strangely named tuning outfit, Ducks Garden, also had a couple of Kei customs on show with some Porsche inspired aesthetics. The Copen 356 definitely carrying off the look better.

On the topic of Copen’s this is one custom that is so brilliant (at least in my mind), that you’d wonder why Daihatsu never considered producing. A Shooting Brake Copen from Esqueleto Style.

How cool is that? Make it a Targa roof and it’ll be perfect!

Esqueleto also took part in dressing up the new Copen.

Still seems nothing out of the ordinary other than the eye-burning color. The side profile does seem a little different. Go around the back and…

We’ve seen plenty of stanced and slammed cars on the show floor but B-Dash brings things up a slight notch with custom front wings that accentuate the dropped ride height by bringing up the wheel arches way up. Lovely detailing on the bodywork.

There were plenty of Vanning builds as well but personally i’m not really into vans so i didn’t take that many pictures of em. (sorry)
