Event Coverage: Wekfest Japan 2018 Part 2

Scroll down to content

Continuing our coverage from where we left off in Part 1, we now look at the actual show.

One of the main difference between Wekfest USA and Wekfest Japan is the operating hours of the event. Typically, the USA events will open to the public in the afternoon, whereas most auto events in Japan will get started as early as 10 am.

The venue used is called Port Messe, situated in Nagoya. Nagoya is a major hub in Japan that is geographically centralized for easy access. From Tokyo or Osaka, it is a mere one to two hours by bullet train.

Being that Japan does reflect one of the origins of customization in car culture, we expected to see a lot of extensive builds. Moreover, I noticed that people are really taking restoration more seriously at this event, providing evidence that nostalgia lives on.

The DC2R is now considered by many a classic. I would love to get my hands on one.

This E34 Estate is not something you see everyday. It’s refreshing to see one of these done right.
