The Chronicles© – No Equal Since 2008 | www.stickydiljoe.com

There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

Shota Mori did an amazing job of capturing the “Kday!!” Season 2 event as you saw in parts 1 and 2 of our coverage but today, for part 3 of 3, we’re going to close-out the series with some photos from two other enthusiasts. Originally, I had saved some of Koji Karimata’s photos because there were some cars that I wanted to show you guys that Mori-san didn’t capture. It turns out that on one of my random nights of searching for photos, I also saved some pics that were shot by Mr. Masaru MSR Tanaka. I don’t know what happened but I somehow managed to mix the two photos together so I just decided to put them up as a set for you guys today. It’s always good to have photos from various people because it’s nearly impossible to capture every single car at an event and especially since I’m not the one shooting, I often see cars in the background of some of these pics that I really wish I could see better photos of. Luckily there were a couple of guys that I regularly follow that attended Takeshi Kobayashi’s “Kday!!” event so I can show you the builds that really caught my eye. Again thanks to Shota Mori for coming through with the great photos for part 1 and 2 but today, we’re gonna take a closer look at some other builds from Koji Karimata and Masaru Tanaka. You’ll recognize some of the cars in today’s post from the previous days but at different angles. The others are cars that haven’t been seen until today…

Not sure if this CIvic coupe was a LHD-conversion or legit U.S.-imported but it looked interesting on Panasport G7 C8R wheels… Speaking of which, if you ever wondered where your Sportmaxx/XXR wheels stole their face design from, google “Panasport G7 C8S”…

    awesome coverage, I’m glad your blog exists otherwise i would never see the coverage from japanese events like this.

    nice to see that even though its obviously a ‘USDM’ inspired event that the cars aren’t shitted up with an assload of stickers like they would be in the US

    really into that ferio on mf8s
