HIK 2013 Odaiba Japan Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

Seems like the general reaction to yesterday’s coverage of the HIK 2013 show was overwhelmingly positive, so why not just go ahead and dive into the rest of the set?…

There really isn’t much left to say that hasn’t been covered already in yesterday’s post, but if you happened to have missed the update, here is the link below. Once you get through those it’ll all make a lot more sense….

HIK 2013 Odaiba Japan Coverage…Part 1…

Like yesterday, you’ll see a lot of variety in terms of style and vehicle makes. That’s what made the Hot Import Kenoh event so interesting…

All photos were shot by Shota Mori and then processed by me (StickyDilJoe)…

Really liked this capture by Shota Mori of the owners and their Zoomers…

This Zoomer/Ruckus has had its frame lengthened and slammed to the pavement. Pretty sick set-up…

I believe this Porsche 993 belongs to Noriaki Miyamoto, the owner of Barramundi Design wheels and Common Snapper… This 911 is also on BMD Fogo wheels…

Does anyone remember this SW20 Toyota MR-2 from back in the day? It was featured in Modified magazine back in like, 2005-06 or maybe even before that but it’s crazy to still see it around in the same condition. The shop that built it was called “Skills” and they do all kinds of custom fabrication and audio stuff. This SW20 was really nutty for its time and even by today’s standards it is still pretty wild…

Takeshi and Type_K Autosource was well represented at HIK, as seen in this Wek’Sos/Type_K collaborative decal to commemorate his “Kday Season 2” event last year…

We see a ton of them here but it’s not too often that you encounter some Si-VTEC bug-eye front ends on Integras over there…

The Toyota Altezza that was seen in yesterday’s post on custom orange BBS LM wheels…

I’m actually helping BMD develop their U.S. site here for one of their distributors and it should be up in a week or so. Just some fine-tuning and content that needs to be added and then you guys will have full access to everything you need to know about Barramundi Design wheels…

I think this was a completely random encounter on their drive back but here are some shots of a slammed Subaru Impreza wagon…

8631447414_30fabd49c7_o-Edit

Not sure if you guys dig the whole stanced all-wheel drive Subaru look but it’s pretty cool, I gotta admit. Looks good on the Advan Racing Model 5 wheels…

8631447470_f9b38050e4_o-Edit

Rarely see the GC-chassis wagons modded at all when you come to think about it. I know the wagons were called the Outback here but I think in Japan, they had these turbocharged versions and they were called the Gravel Express or something odd like that…

A photo of Yonekawa and Kuroda’s coupes together at a rest spot…

8631448466_a1a8276002_o-Edit

One of my favorite shots from Shota Mori to date is this shot of Kuroda’s Civic. I really like how the photo came out with the traffic in the distance and Kuroda’s expression as he’s driving. I liked it so much that I made it into my current desktop image. If you guys want it, I’ve attached it below, just click on the image for the full size photo. It’s fucking huge (2560×1600) so be prepared…

This shot of Yonekawa’s Civic is another cool shot because, as I’ve explained, they don’t have EM1 coupes over there so this is a cool shot of an EM1 (conversion) on Japanese roadways. I’ve also turned this one into a 2560×1600 desktop image as well…

Well that’s a wrap on the HIK coverage. Hope you guys enjoyed it. Thanks for looking!…
