Thousands of balls-out vehicle builds, tens of thousands of attendees and an unprecedented amount of middle aged non-tuner enthusiasts toting long lenses. How do the latter creepers fit into all of this, you ask? The models of Tokyo Auto Salon, of course. Like flies to horse caca, crowds ready to give their zoom a proper workout swarm every booth babe willing to pose, smile, dance, throw up fun hand gestures to the camera – see below.
Japan is an unbelievably awesome place for so many reasons. The fun/wild/cartoonish/unique style found around Tokyo and countrywide media is one of those reasons. The models of Tokyo Auto Salon are a perfect example.
In one expo hall it’s not crazy to walk past petite ladies wearing everything from nun to sexy school girl costumes, anime garb, sparkling cocktail dresses, S&M leather, cop uniforms, etc, etc, etc. Nothing peaks your interest faster than cartoon cute high-pitched chants and songs heard during scheduled model dance routines. It’s impossible not to take pictures – some (a lot) of the locals here just take it a bit too seriously.
Anyway, see for yourself. Here is a large collection of Tokyo Auto Salon models that grabbed our attention amidst setting focus on carbon fiber Hachi Roku’s to GT class racecars. In one Japanese word, it is just Sugoi (soo-GOY!!).
