Well as I mentioned previously I have a hell of a lot of photos from AJD, so I’ll split my coverage up into a few posts. I won’t post everything I have, either, so if you see a car here that you want to see more of leave a comment and I’ll post what I have. If you see your car on this blog and would like full size photos sent to you, please leave your email address and I’ll send you all the shots I took. Free of charge and with no watermarks, of course.

For Part 1 I thought I’d give an overview of what the show was like. There was as wide a variety of cars as you could hope to see, ranging from elaborately decayed old Isuzus…
…right through to Iron Chef’s rare as hen’s teeth R34 GTR. I think it is a V-Spec II N1 or something equally ridiculous. It is pretty too:
That carbon bonnet is factory…
The variety kept coming with an immaculate Y34 Nissan Cedric VIP.
There were a few ways to tell you weren’t at Autosalon. 1: It was outside. 2: All the girls were wearing clothes. 3: There was no teeth-grindingly awful dance music, and 4: Plenty of cars had epic fitment. Like this S1 S14.
I believe that’s called “doing it right”.
Surprisingly there were only 2 180SXs at the show. More on this car later.
There was plenty of Toyota Love in the air. This car was about 17-18 times cooler than a beige Corolla has any right to be.
Steve was there in his Galant with newly fitted R34 GTR wheels. Props for keeping the centrecaps on too. Good to see some Nissan making its way on there. Good to meet you Steve, by the way! Note: if you own a facelift VR4 and are running wheels any weaker than this, you’re doing it wrong. I’ll be featuring this car in a future post so stay tuned for more.
Finally (for this installment), the best in show. The Smooth Garage Silvia was simply amazing. This photo was taken as I was picking my jaw up off the grass. This is another car I’ll feature in a future post.
