Kday 2013 Coverage…The Lost Photos…Part 1…

Okay, so I was digging around on my PC the other day, trying to clean my hard drive out and discovered that I had these photos that I never posted. Around the time when the Kday 2013 was happening over in Japan, I had a ton of coverage to get through and these just managed to leak through the cracks and I completely forgot about them. The Kday coverage that I ended up posting was a 5-part series so I had so many photos that I thought that these were already in the mix. Luckily I found these because there are some good shots in here by Koji Karimata that I do not want to go to waste. It’s been a couple months since the original coverage was posted anyway so it’ll almost seem like completely new content. A lot of the cars in these photos are recognizable because they are regulars on this site. I thoroughly enjoy covering the Japanese Honda community and its enthusiasts so I really make an effort to provide photos from their events. Takeshi Kobayshi did an amazing job of organizing this event on his own and from the photos, you can tell that he had some really cool builds present. I won’t bother you with much more talk since I’ve discussed this event in length already so just sit back and enjoy the shots…

If you happened to have missed last year’s Kday ’13 coverage completely or are new to the site and want to see more, I’ve provided the links below to the entire five part series….
