TOKYO AUTO SALON 2010: Day 1January 15, 2010 11:47 pm
So, today was the first day of the 2010 Tokyo Autosalon. Like last year, I wasn’t there to cover it in the traditional photojournalist day. I was helping out the guys from Auto Salon Magazine (this causes some confusion here sometimes) with translation and things like that.
I still took my camera along though. It was only the little P6000, but it did the job.
Here’s some things at the show I thought were cool.
Of course, the first place I visited was the Drift Tengoku stand to talk to the editor, Kawasaki-san.
Did I mention he regularly reads Noriyaro? I did?
326Power S14 demo car. Haruguchi-san was standing just off to the side in this shot.
The Bowls LA guys asked I take photos of old cars.
Here they are, old-school people. Prepare to lose your sh*t over the new Rays TE37V.
Oops, how did those get in there?
The Amuse 370Z looks exactly like a 370Z should.
A thousand horses for you in JZX110 form, from Inose-san at Friends Racing.
Oh my, Skyline porn.
There was a special stand full of Skylines (more than just these ones) celebrating 20 years of the RB26 engine.
Dammit, look at the Revolution FD. Look at it.
Look at it.
This is not a car. It’s a spaceship.
It’s really hard getting eye-contact shots with the promo girls when you have such a little camera. Oh well.
Makes me think of a hippy’s jumper. Nice interior though.
Nomuken is going budget in this year’s D1 Grand Prix.
This kit was produced by a friend of mine, and it was only just fitted and finished just before the show by Final Konnexion. Very very nice job with the wheels.
The front looks sweet too, especially with the lovely Lisa Toda in front of it. This car is also aligned with the Japanese importer of Brian Crower parts. More on that another time.
Think of the 80s, think of this 86. Love those Panasports.
Maeken’s car is still out there.
Hakostagea was a bit…I dunno. Something wasn’t quite right. Last year’s R35 Stagea was spot on though.
The D1 demos were fun. A little girl standing behind me started crying when Tezuka started banging on his Bee-R rev limiter!
All the top-ranked guys from last year’s comp were there.
Anyway, I’m sure lots of other content about Autosalon will be coming out soon. Back to work for me.Tags: Tokyo Auto Salon

That Mark II. I want that. Badly
I love this website !
the hakostagea is seriously hurting for new wheels. i LOVE the taillights on the revolution fd!!!!!
i saw the te37v earlier but i didnt think they would make them in such low offset! they are very reminiscent of watanabes, just with less character 🙂
and nomuken’s graphics give me a headache!!
Ken’s new drift car!? are you serious!!??
I’ll be there Sunday..
Maybe I’ll meet you and Dino. I want some of them Speed Hunter Stickers. My laptop needs them, because I don’t have a car.
Friends Racing’s JZX is a SICK Sleeper!!
And Im defintely gonna get those TE37V’s!
I’m lovin those new TE37V’s.
Fits the c10 skyline very well.
Thanks for photos and information : D
But in the last pic I see a JZX in the rigth… that is Daigo Saito’s Chaser??
Because looks very good and clean.
The Final Konnexion er34 looks great. From the pictures here and elsewhere its my favorite car so far… and i normally hate color matched wheels. Something about it is awesome!
Awesome awesome photos, love Nomuken’s little van.
please post more about Nomuken’s funny-looking wagon and Inose-san’s monster JZX110!!

Thanks for the coverage Alexi
Can’t wait for the rest of the coverage
Nice coverage there Alexi, even if it was just using a normal camera lol.
The Uras Wagon-R looks really amazing with the Blitz livery, wonder if they converted it to RWD and upgraded the engine as well haha…
8D .. damn ! . . . i wish i were there
ive seen that FD in one of our Tuning magazines .. looks TIGHT !!
Freshly news! Have you got pictures of Hakostagea?
Freshly news! Have you got pictures of Hakostagea?
Yeah, those chicks from the Wald set up – over at 7tune they got real close. I mean real, straight up.
Great coverage man! I’ve been posting your pics (with links/credits of course) on a couple of forums (Club4ag & Hachiroku.net). Did you get a chance to find out what size those bronze TE37V’s are?
Cool stuff. Love the old Skyline and the 86s.
Also I love those rev limiters. Bang bang!
Its as you mentioned, porn. 😀
The FD and the Jzx110 are just pure sex. Suppose I would be staring at those for over an hour.. =)
New Rays are 素晴らしい! -.- Haven’t lost a bit of their usual charm. )
Thanks Alexi, you always know how to choose something to make us all happy. 😀 Pity couldnt present there. (
Love the 34 very Tokyo Extreme Racer style and the 370 looks awesome more of them cars need to be tuned
Все,еду в JAPAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
