Black Pearl Car Show 2012 Hyogo, Japan

We had the chance to attend the Black Pearl Car Show while we were in Japan. We wanted to share some pics to show what the Japan scene is like at the moment.

Ed Representing Vegas with his IS350

When Ed was in them market for air suspension, he knew he wanted the best so he chose Airrunner TC-5. This controls dampening adjustment from inside the cabin through the digital controller. Now you can control dampening stiffness as well as car height at the tip of your fingers.

Ed then decided on 19″ Work Schwert SC2 wheels in the black polish. We aren’t quite sure what else he has in store for his IS, but whatever it is, we can’t wait!

 

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!

We also want to include Airrunner’s ACCtv video with coverage from this event.
