It’s Tokyo Auto Salon time again, and you know what that means. All the weird and wacky custom cars of Japan come to Makuhari Messe in Chiba to show their stuff. Reports are filtering in all over the web, but NoriYaro has a posted a few cellphone shots.
Let’s start with the craziest one first, this may look like a normal Toyota 2000GT, but walk around to the side and you see…
… an N1 RB26 from the R34 Skyline GT-R Nür! We can already see the Toyota purists taking up torches and pitchforks as Nissan fans chuckle smugly. Me, personally? Pass the pitchfork.
UPDATE: This is actually an amazingly crafted 2000GT lookalike built on a Nissan Fairlady Z platform! Err.. sorry about burning down your village.
Next up is this Nissan Skyline R30 in its trademark two-tone red and black paint scheme with a custom cage and body kit, built by Sakamoto Jidosha in Kyushu.
It too has been a candidate for an engine swap, but at least they kept it in the family with an SR20DET.
And finally, we have this Honda Civic EF, which looks surprisingly cool with its old school Mugen CF48 wheels and retro stripes that remind us of Osamu Nakako and Hideki Okada’s Motul Civic racer that won the 1987 All-Japan Touring Car Championship.
