Nagoya Auto Trend

We haven't even had our first car show here (now we have, but when I started writing this we hadn't) and they're already hip deep in car shows in Japan.  Another recent car show that caught my interest was the 10th Annual NAT or Nagoya Auto Trend and had cars both inside and outside.  And just a few Campaign Girls and Race Queens in attendance too.

Outside the show you could find some exotics, a very large collection of former Subaru Rally cars, I did have a chuckle at the Subaru Rally Kei Truck.  As well as a large assortment of NSX cars of various tastes.   Inside the event you could find a lot of the same stuff that we've already seen at TAS and at the Nostalgic 2 days show with some new stuff thrown in as well.  Even though there was a lot of the same stuff as previous shows the new Ferrari based cop car was cool and I liked it a whole lot more than that stanced out police car.

And of course there were plenty of demo Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ cars to look at as well.  But I don't think, and I didn't see, any thing new since TAS.  Just new pictures from other people.  It was interesting to see a Nissan Fairlady (350Z) with an American flag and the Statue of Liberty at a car show in Japan.  I know they are hitting the American tuner scene hard but that just takes the cake and not something I was expecting to see in Japan.

Of course the biggest reason some people check this show out is for the Campaign Girls and Race Queens who are attendance for the show.  There was a big stage event introducing new Race Queens and Campaign Girls and of course the signing and dancing stuff that's pretty standard fair at any event with Race Queens.

I like this show since even though there is a good number of cars that we've already seen else where there is also huge assortment of stuff that hasn't been seen too.  And the lovely ladies don't hurt either.
