Here’s my final batch of pictures from Tokyo Auto Salon. Although I’ve been lucky enough to attend this show a few times now, I am always excited to attend as there is always something new to see and learn. Some might say that it would be wishful thinking to have a trade show of this caliber in the U.S. However, one must realize that in Japan, this is their domestic market so for obvious reasons, they should be able to excel in the industry compared to other countries. Nevertheless, with communication and technology improving before our eyes, it’s safe to say that the rest of the world will have a much easier time catching up and stay on par with the Japanese scene.
I should also mention that Joey from The Chronicles also made the trip this year to attend the show. If you guys want more in depth coverage, please follow these links below:

VIP Modular attended this year’s show. It’s great to see that more American companies doing business globally.
VIP platforms & VIP style cars are a big hit in Japan. The Lexus LS has been a staple for many companies as a model to showcase their work from.
On the left you’ll see an older model Toyota Crown. It’s too bad that the U.S. doesn’t get this model. Instead, we’re stuck with Avalons and Camrys. -_-
A great looking FC RX-7.
Until you see the back….
Really like these new Work Durandal wheels
An all time favorite
I’m not an expert on the chassis, but I have always admired them. Would love to own one someday

Another new LS I wouldn’t mine owning

This fender swallows babies for breakfast.
