VIPCAR Magazine Interview with Mr. Taketomi of Junction Produce

We are VERY excited to bring you the 2013 March VIPCAR Magazine Issue. We had a great opportunity to sit and talk with Mr. Taketomi, VIP originator and owner of Junction Produce. Much of the conversation was about the VIP scene in the U.S. and where we each thought it is headed. It was real pleasure and honor to get this opportunity, we want to give a huge thanks to Mr. Taketomi and Mr. Katayama of VIPCAR Magazine!

CarsxHype.com Feature Updates

Since our Lexus LS400 and GS300 were originally featured on CarsxHype a year ago, both cars have been through a lot of changes. So we decided to do a double update. Special thanks to Otis Blank and CarsxHype!

SEMA Show 2012 Las Vegas

This year’s SEMA show was a success. We met with Felgenoutlet for a photoshoot and with Airrunner Acctv for a video shoot Friday. Friday night we attended the Vegas VIP meet. We can’t wait for next year!

Our friends at Beat-Sonic brought out their FRS for their booth.

Slammed Society Las Vegas 2012

We had the pleasure of attending Slammed Society Las Vegas this year. It was a good opportunity to hang out with our Vegas friends again and check out the current, local scene.

Cesar and his turbo GS made the trip from Phoenix to Las Vegas rolling on 20″ Weds Maverick 210S.

Roy’s and his clean Q45 navigate Vegas streets static on coilovers.

Glenn’s GS, check out that rear lip!

Yoshi’s Black GS on air suspension with Aristo 2JZ-GTE VVT-i swap

JonJon brought out the LS430 again right after winning at Infamous earlier this month in Long Beach.

Joel’s LS430 lowered on coilovers and aggressive Wald wheels. He will soon be doing fender work to get her lower.

Our local friend Jerell, with the help from his wife Leslie, drove the Skyboxx xB and his supercharged Miata from Phoenix.

Nisei Week Car Show Downtown LA 2012

Not only did we represent at The Infamous in Long Beach this past weekend, but also at the Nisei Week Car Show in downtown Los Angeles in Little Tokyo. We want to thank Beat Sonic for inviting Cesar and his GS to represent for Kyoei at their booth. Also a shoutout to the Club4AG crew! We always enjoy returning to SoCal to hang out with you guys!

A lot of fine Hondas and Acuras showcased.

There was one other AZ car representing! Coincidentally, this car was also featured in the same Super Street issue that our LS400 was in (June ’12).

Top notch build on this IS300.

Very neat Honda City with Motocompo scooter.

Simple but clean IS300 lowered, sitting on SSR MS1s and JDM Altezza grill

Unfortunately, we don’t see CRZs modded much. It is a shame, this one looks great.

And we can’t forget about the lowriders!
