Phaze2 x Autofashion Night Meet 2015 Coverage…

By now, many of you will have been all caught-up on the newest Vlog series covering our trek to Japan. The most recent episode covers one of the many highlights from the trip; the Phaze2 x Autofashion Night Meet, held in the private parking lot of Universal Studios Japan. It was crazy to see so many cars show up. They filled the entire lot and cars were still trying to make their way into the lot after the meet had ended. There were cops outside making sure no funny business was happening and the meet went on throughout the evening without incident. You should have seen the video by now, if not, please go check it out in the previous post. Today, we’re going to check out some of the photos that I took that night. There were over 1300 cars there but I really wanted to just sit back and experience the moment for once instead of wandering the dark lot to try to capture photos. I hope you guys understand. Between video and photos, it’s really hard to just be able to take everything in with the friends that I had with me. Huge thanks to Phaze2 Yasu for putting this whole event together and hopefully we get to do another one next year. Also, thanks to all who attended and made this such an epic event. Enjoy the photos….

I’ve been following this Nissan Leopard build for quite some time now so it was awesome to finally see it in person. It is every bit as good as it looked in photos. The owner didn’t have the hood popped but it actually has an RB26 engine swap in it from a Nissan Skyline GT-R….

White EK9 CTRs are quite the popular platforms to build in Osaka, Japan…

I saw quite a bit of these older Toyota Crowns out and about in Osaka during my travels. They typically wear this two-tone colorway too and are slammed to the pavement…

IMG_1310-Edit

I think of all the popular VIP platforms out in this area, I prefer to see the JZS161 Aristo chassis modded because they can be recreated in so many different styles….

IMG_1311-Edit

Definitely one of the cleaner graphical liveries that we saw that night. The addition of the chrome trim is a great detail touch…

I really wish I would have taken more photos that night but there was just so much going on and most of the event was in the dark so it was hard to capture. That and there were so many people there that it made it hard to shoot long-exposure stuff to really capture the cars. Regardless, thanks for looking and making sure to watch the newest Vlog if you haven’t already….
