SHOW UP Custom car show - Osaka

The other week was the SHOW UP car show here in Osaka.  I am not very interested in these kinds of cars but I thought it would give me a good chance to use the camera. 

It wasn't a very big show and it was filled mostly with cars I wouldn't be caught driving in but there were a few nice ones like this-

Low enough?

Now here is a mod I have never seen before-

American style-

The scooter tuning community was out in full force as well-

Why a Dodge?

Reminds me of the movie Alien-

Louis Vuitton in the rear I understand but... the engine bay also?!

I kinda like this-

A bit of oomph in the trunk-

How do you get into this car?


  1. haha, the fender mod and the airbrushed ladies with the ram are hilarious. and how DO you get into that soarer? awkwarrrrd.

  2. Hey man, I'm off work for five days in mid-November and am planning to cycle from Mie to Kyoto, possibly including a drop by Meihan on the 20th, if I can plan the route correctly. According to their website, there are drift events on three of the circuits that day. You think they're worth hitting up, or not so much? I'm betting whatever drift events are happening will be worth checking out, but would you happen to know anything about those clubs, ラトルクランカー, hokkoringo, and Real Factory-M? They are open drift days, yeah? I checked out their websites, but can't find much info. Thanks!

  3. hey man, your cycle trip sounds like fun. I hope you don't get stuck in the snow though.

    I have heard of real factory-m but not sure how their drift days are. I would be interested to see it just because its on the e-course and I have never seen drifting up there on it before.

    I have heard of Hokkoringo before and possibly have been to one of their drift days. Nothing special with them. There is a reason their drift day is held on the d-course (parking lot).

    as for ラトルクランカー, no idea.

    with three events in one day though I am sure you will find something interesting!

  4. Haha, appreciated. I planned the route and it won't be hard to stop by, so I will check it out regardless. Thanks for the info!

  5. just to let you know in case you didn't know already, route 25 that meihan is located next to is a free highway that you can't ride bicycles on.

  6. what type of car is the 2nd one
