Over 121,000 people came to check out the Fukuoka Auto Salon held at the Yahoo Dome in Kyushu, Japan. Normally reserved as the home field for pro baseball team, the Softbank Hawks, the Yahoo Dome was filled to the brim with the best autos Kyushu had to offer. Besides the unique venue, the Fukuoka Auto Salon show itself is one of a kind. Although smaller than its big brother, the Tokyo Auto Salon, Fukuoka is far from a slanty-eyed, Japanese redheaded stepchild.

Although a bit smaller, what it lacks in size, it more than makes up with downright craziness. Think Napoleon on meth. And being that Fukuoka is on a different island, the show packed the field with a fresh set of cars, girls, and booths not seen in Tokyo. And out of all the cool shit we saw, here's our pick for the top 25-and one gross one we should have probably cut out.
