This post is kind of a big deal because this event marks my 2nd year in a row attending the Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 (Tokyo Auto Salon 2009 Review) and because this post is CarZi.com’s 1000th post!!
Even with down yet slowly recovering economic conditions affecting everything global & automotive, the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon will be celebrating it’s 28th anniversary this year with approximately 300 companies in attandance (2009 had 334 companies which drew 230,000 visitors in 3 days!!).
Last year, among the 334 companies that were in attendance the two that really stood out produced some custom Lamborghini Murcielago 4×4 ATV and a custom Ferrari Suzuki Hayabusa Trike which garnered much attention from the crowd and automotive blogs/magazines around the globe.
Finally, my trip to Tokyo’s flagship Nissan Ginza Showroom gave me the timely opportunity to provide the world with the first detailed up close photo album of the Nissan GT-R Spec V which saw 40,000+ views in less than 24 hours!
Bottom line is that the Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 is in less than 5 days and before I make my attendance I will be hitting Hakuba, Japan for some sick world class powder snowboarding If you happen to be at the show and see me (i’ll be one of a few tall white guys) don’t be shy and say hi!
