Now that we’ve explored the first deck, it’s time to continue speedhunting by heading up a deck. With time not that much on my side (i was heading back to Haneda to pick up my lost luggage and return back into town before the last trains depart), i had to work fast (and furiously!) hahaha… Sorry…
Judging by the cars that have parked up here and those that we’d discover at the Auto Salon, there does seem be a huge renewal of interest in Japanese sports cars from the late 80s through to the 90s, led by none other than the Godzillas of course. Of course we all know why, those were the glory days of the JDM speed machines.
Not a very obvious choice by most but it’s good to see the Mitsubishi 3000GT/GTO get some love.
Skylines and Supras were always the pinnacle of the JDM movement in my opinion. I’d sure love to have one. Save for the scuffed front lip, this one looks particularly clean and rather sinister in its black on black ensemble.
Speaking of black on black. Fairladies seem to pull off the flared arch look rather well. Perhaps because they already come stock with some wide hips.
Rocket Bunny Fairlady. Fierce!
Looking straight like something off the TAS showfloor.
This Maserati also looked like it was on display at a previous TAS’s Liberty Walk booth!
Continuing the wide fender look is this Lexus IS-F. Very aggressive.
STI going low down as well.
Civic Coupe, can’t say i see much of these around.
Another clean Supra! On stock wheels no less. My guess is that with those Y-plates, this is going to be shipped to the US in due time.
When your overfenders are just not wide enough.
Suzuki Alto Works, i really like it. Though not many people paid any attention to it, i think it’ll be quite a fun car to potter around town in.
Namie Chan themed Honda Mobilio. Because Japan.
Even has her autograph!
Once again, because Japan. I call it, the Keiju!
This rusty thing is not really my cup of tea but to each his own. As long as the owner is having fun!
3rd Gen Supras, like the Mitubishi GTOs don’t seem get as much love. I think they are under appreciated.
Fun fact, the first time i saw one of these, was back when i first visited Japan in 1998. I had no idea what these “Type R”s were back then.
Evo III. Great looking even when stock. Lovely example.
Keeping it clean seems to be a (great) trend. Can’t believe this body design is now over 20 years old. Still looks so good.
I think i saw something like this back in the TAS carpark back in 2012.
Accord wagons look great. This one more so.
Bippus seem to be getting less popular. Maybe sports cars are making a comeback?
When onikyan is life!
The above shows what happens when car guys go window shopping.
Let’s finish off Part 2 with some interesting characters i came across when walking around! So strange to finally see the Super Street staff after looking at their faces in the magazine for so long! I want those jackets!
Stay tuned, i think you guys will like Part 3 & 4 & 5! Auto Otaku forever!!!
