the madness just keeps going and going!

anyone likes to play soccer... with a car?!


other than the GT-5p simulation, here's another fun arcade:


behind the arcade, sits Ken Nomura's face-lift 4dr Skyline:


let me turn the table around again, check out the slick CL & Lambo:




Aimgain rolls out with this syk Celsior & Cima:



even though the new Knight Ryder is in the making, i still jock the classic KITT:


who says vegas is the only place you can play this?


don't you wish you have this setup at home?


the ever so popular Voltex Evo display their demo car again outside of their tiny little booth:







the legendary MCR from C1-Wangan to Tsukuba Circuit brought out a 350z demo car:



one clean cwest/bbs/endless Altezza with an interesting engine setup (check out the pipings):






Reckless' widebody MR-S:


one clean Aristo:


there are a lot of familiar faces here, one suprise that came jumping from my back was Jeri Lee @ the NKB booth with some nice bimmers:


one clean supercharged Soarer that i bumped into not only @ the show, but also in the Shibuya streets later on Sunday evening:



Toyo tire display their 2007 D1 Champ vehicle:


meeting Takeshi Fujitsubo aka president of Arqray Japan was definately an honor, a very open-minded person like his father aka THE Mr.Fujitsubo san; anyways, here's their new GTR:


Next to Fujitsubo was the infamous Gruppe M, which displays one of many expensive intake system they have on this prestidge Vantage:




one of the many rare vehicles @ the show, was this slick Mitsuoka Orochi (now edited with correct pic):



next to it is another kit-car that i don't think will earn the same love:



PIAA now have more than just a handful of wheel line-ups that most people know of:



Riverside is not just a place where i went to college at, but a very famous wheel brand in Japan, check their new LS:


the diamond-star sure came prepared, check out this K-car:


Team Orange's Kumakubo-san also made a debut with his 2008 D1 drift machine, as a prodigy from the vehicle-switch he made in mid-07' season:


across from the Mitsubishi booth was the HKS Kansai Service booth; here are their Evo X & GTR:



behind Kansai is a wall full of wheels from Advan, and i absolutely fall in love with their FD3S RX7:




these were just pix from Day 1... wait till you see what's next from Day2!

yea i got some of that coming right up, so hang tight and stay tuned! ;)

nevertheless, Day 2's morning kicked off with more fresh JDM flava!

so i started my day2 walk where i left off in day1 @ the Advan booth, here's there LS:




Power Enterprise debut their new GTR:


next to them was ARK with some fresh electronics, brakes, aeros...etc:





then i drop my jaw when i saw this @ the Bride's main display; along with their nice D1 S15:



Endless came out this year with the same professionalism they have had every year (i'll come back for their cars later):




then this decked out Preius in RAYS' booth caught my attention:



along with that Toyota Hybrid, is a flat black TOM's SC430 that will compete in D1 this year:



and how can you come to TAS without stopping by @ Top Secret? check out their debut on the Super-996 and other cars:














Phoenix Power brought one of the cleanest R32 i've ever seen along with a delicious ranch under the hood to hold all its horses:


who says conversion is not cool anymore? this FD3S got a nice finish on its RX8 front end conversion:


then there was this supra with the wrong set of wheels; you see, not every car is 'quality' even @ TAS, but that's just 1% of the cars there! hahaha


oh boy, gotta go take a brunch break and drop a 'shedload' of goodies back at the $3.00 locker:


brb~

now walking back to the show from the lockers, i get to see more pimpn' feature-vehicles.


this Option Stream Z-Jr. caught my attention, it is the first complete-vehicle that you can purchase through Daijiro-San of Option/Option2, which comes with complete vin #'s:


then next to the Z-Jr. sits one of my club-mates' JZX90 MarkII from the Maziora Club (peep his newborn in the Bride babysit!):



and i just can't get enough from these JZX series rides, check out this syk JZX110 Chaser from Kazama:


and how can you come to the show and not appreciate this classic?


or this one from Top Secret?


next to Option2 booth sits Drift-Samurai's infamous MarkII:


also this 2-tone S13:


and here are more JZX madness:




URAS brought out this fresh S14 Zenki that rumor says will compete in the D1 Street Legal this season:



here's a supercharged IS350 from Tom's:


Top Secret V35:


Charge Speed's Z33 is rocking their brand new widebody kit and a fresh neon-green paint:



Falken's JZX100 Chaser!


one clean Aristo that got the USDM flavor:
