It’s funny how in the states here you can have a ride with literally just a set of nice wheels & flashy paint job and pick yourself up a trophy for “best in show”. Visit any of the bigger events in Japan and see how far that’ll take you! If you’re not rocking a handful of “one-off” stuff, have nothing but genuine parts, and rock an insane wheel fitment, you’ll be in for a surprise. Don’t get us wrong please, we’re not talking down on anyone here just comparing the cultures. Take the cars that showed up to the Kershaw Dress up Party 2011 for example. Insane camber, beautiful fender work, rare and super aggressive wheels, one off bumpers, and just incredible all around cars! We strongly urge you to actually spend some time looking at photo by photo and seeing just how much awesome stuff you can spot that you’ve never seen before. Big thanks to our photographer Masaaki for covering this event for us. We’ll have more photos throughout the following week so make sure to check back!
