Event Preview: Mayday Garage does Tokyo Auto Salon 2012.

We’ve been a little MIA on our Facebook page in the last couple of days due to us being on an airplane and running around all over Japan. Rest assured, we’re working our asses off taking a ton of photos. I won’t go into detail about how hard we’re partying or the one hour rests we have between our days, but we’re here right now at the Makuhari Messe Convention center doing work. So before we take off to another Rauh Welt Begriff car meet, I wanted to show you guys a few photos I took earlier so you know what to expect (car wise at the show). Enjoy!

Waiting around for our train right outside of Tokyo. It was empty.

Real Empty.

Right outside the convention center, we're running on fumes here.

And we're in! Room number one.

One of my favorite cars there, the TWS LF-A

Event Coverage: The SEMA Show 2011 pt. 1

A few months back, some of the guys decided they wanted to go back to the final round of FormulaD in Irwindale, CA, but the scheduling was out of the way for some of us.  So JohnP and I decided to go til about a month ago when the question of SEMA came up, “Why don’t we go to SEMA instead? We’ve never been and a bunch of people are going!” A few weeks later and some vacations days requested, I was lucky enough to change the FormulaD days I took off for to the SEMA show days of Nov. 1-4.  By this time, JohnP had business to take care of at home so MaydayDavid stepped in to be Maydays’ spokesperson/photographer/editor/writer/partner/spouse.

Welcome to SEMA 2011!

The third person of our group attending SEMA was Mayday Danny.  You should remember his name because we’ve recently released information that he is currently building a 993 RWB.  Danny booked his flight to SEMA at the last minute just for the sole reason of meeting RWB’s Nakai-san whom later visited Houston to check out the roads, clubs, and steakhouse. Overall, Nakai-san likes the “openness” of Texas :)

I wish we had a photo of Danny meeting Nakai-san for the first time, but we didn't make it til the 2nd day of the show.

Rotiforms were the choice of wheels for Mark's RWB Pandora One.

RWB 964 owned by Brian Scotto of Hoonigan.

Das boot.

Mind. Blown. Jorge’s Crazy Sick and Lightning Quick TechArt GT Street RS 911 GT2RS

Yeah, that’s a lot of adjectives and one super lengthy name for a car. If it were entirely up to me (which, let’s not kid ourselves, it is, but we have a lot of readers with short attention spans), I would have described it with no less than 15 different adjectives, because even then, it wouldn’t be enough to properly describe Jorge M’s fantastic TechArt GT Street RS 911 GT2RS.

Two words come to mind. What was it again? Oh yeah, "Holy Shit."

Jorge didn't really feel comfortable trusting a valet with his car, so he parked it the best way he knew how. Like a BOSS.

Admit it. You want it.
