Track And Show Japan 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 3…

What’s up all. As you’re reading this, I’m probably on a flight to Tokyo so as you can see, I don’t have a whole lot of time to chat. While I’m gone, here is the second half of the “Track and Show” event that recently took place at the famed Fuji Speedway. In Part 1, Shota Mori and I gave you a glimpse of the event from the “track” side of the event, and today, we’re going to look at the cars from the “show” section. Some of the cars from the track did migrate over to the show side eventually but for the most part, you’ll see a completely different set of vehicles from the latter. There’s a good variety of styles and builds in this post, so enjoy!…

Oh, as always, thanks to the mighty Shota Mori for coming through with the great photos once again! Love his work and as always, he is one of the few, if not THE ONLY other photographer whose work you’ll see spotlighted here on The Chronicles…

Next to Mori’s Accord was the custom Honda CR-X that participated in the track portion of the event…

Quite a bit of extensive bodywork on this CR-X. Under the widened fenders and quarters are Japanese I.Force wheels. Note the center-exit exhaust coming out of the custom rear bumper…

Really liked this red EK with TE37 wheels up front and Spoon SW388s in the rear. The thing with mismatched set-ups like this is that there is always a bit of symmetry to them. TEs up front are six spokes and the SWs are 5. Many of the cars that you see running mismatched wheels like this in Japan also follow a similar format…

Shigeaki Hosoguchi’s Lexus IS on MAE Crown Jewels. He recently had an accidental blow-out on the front driver’s side tire and destroyed his front fender. He’s expected to be at Wekfest Japan this week so I wonder if it’ll be fixed by then…

I know a lot of people may be getting a bit tired of all the Rocket Bunny craziness that has consumed us within the last two years but I have to say, the Rocket Bunny FD kit has to be the best-looking kit of them all. I love that the lines of the kit actually flow with the stock body-lines unlike some of the other kits that Miura produces. This gray Rocket Bunny FD on deep, DEEP, Work Meister S1 wheels just looks insane…

On that note, this wraps Part 2 of 3 of the Track And Show 2015 coverage. Make sure to head back over here for the third and concluding portion of our coverage. Thanks for looking!!…
