“Kday!” Chapter 3 Japan Coverage….Part 2…

Welcome back and happy Monday everyone. Today we’re going to be taking a look at Part 2 of our ongoing “Kday!” Chapter 3 coverage provided by Shota Mori from the Land of the Rising Sun. When we last left off, we had just covered Mori-san’s trip back home to Sendai, Japan where he took his buddy Seita Takano along with him to visit Matsushima as well as some other popular stops along the way. The following morning, they headed over to Sugo Sportsland where “Kday!” was set to take place. We pick up our coverage in the early hours of the morning where roll-in was starting to take shape at the venue…

If you missed Part 1, make sure to check that out in the link provided below because Shota Mori took some really great shots during his journey to Miyagi and you really don’t want to miss it…

Speaking of wheels, I’m gonna cut it off here for today with a shot at some very rare, and very odd-looking, NASCA wheels that have been refinished with the faces being 24K-plated… Not sure where they came from or who would want them, but they are very unique, especially in a bright gold finish…

That’s all for today. Much more to come still so stay tuned as we continue with Kday! coverage throughout the week!….

  5. I love how people in Japan manage to get California license plates relevant to Japan. So far I saw plates with the letters “JPN”, “JPK”, and “JDM”
