Canadians Lost In Japan

2

AE86 slanger Jover, designer/builder/drifter/wise-craker Martino, and fellow Garage Collective members Anthony, and Yazan, are currently over in Japan enjoying the heck out of themselves on a trip to the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Between mind-blowing cars, life changing ride alongs, and vending machine dispensed corn, Martino has been sending over pictures of their exploits.

Today’s post contains a few of his photos from the Fresh Tokyo Car Meet, as well as their first day at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Enjoyment on their end is high, as is jealousy on this end.

Fresh Toykyo Car Meet

Super Street, All That Low and Hardcore Japan teamed up to put together a meet in decks at Tokyo Beach. From the looks of it a lot of people rolled through and it was the first stop for a lot of the out-of-town folk.

This S15 was a favorite of Mike’s and it is really easy to see why. Amazing looking car with really unique looking rear over fenders

TAS Day One

Once photos started popping up on their collective instagram accounts  (@jover, @vsmartino @garagecollective) it became pretty apparent that one day I really need to go to TAS, I’d better start saving my pennies.

Moze-R kitted S15 with Voing BBK, and what look to be SSR wheels perhaps?

I believe this is the world’s second Rocket Bunny equipped NSX. I prefer the red paint on this one to the blue chrome used on the one stateside

This is a Lexus LFA set up to drift D1 GP. It’s rumored to be powered by a Nascar spec TRD motor and is probably the most expensive chassis ever used to drift.

 

Hopefully Mike sends through some more stuff but based on his instagram(@VSMartino) he’s pretty busy having an awesome time.
