K-Day Chapter III

The USDM movement grows stronger in Japan!

Sportsland SUGO, a multi-track race facility just outside of Sendai served as the meeting point for the third chapter of the ever-growing K-Day event. The brainchild of Type K Autosource boss man Takeshi Kobayashi, the event brings all makes and models together with an emphasis on USDM trends and styling. The 2012 event saw an impressive 270 cars in attendance, while this year's car count topped 380, with over 1,500 visitors throughout the day.

Though all types of cars are accepted, the Honda presence is heavy and includes cars with complete USDM front and rear end swaps, left-hand drive conversions, and even US-spec license plates from California and Hawaii. The USDM movement is so strong in fact, that a number of Civic and Integra Type R's at the event sported complete US-spec exterior conversions. Tucked and shaved engine bays, complete restorations, K-swaps, extreme stance cars and everything in between could be found at the Chapter III event.

Having experienced incredible growth after just three years and a USDM movement that only seems to be picking up steam, a K-Day Chapter IV event is inevitable.
