A few articles ago, I published the pre-30th Anniversary Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show. Here is another about the event! Why? I took so many pictures I thought I should show more. And let’s be honest, what I saw deserves more attention. It was a petrolhead’s dream.

And after publishing my last article, I reflected a lot. Did I really pick the car I thought was the best? Would I choose a different one for my favorite the day after? The Pharaoh’s Car Club’s 1950 Buick was superb. It looked fantastic. But did anything else come close?

Of course, many hot rods came close. And I’m sure, lots of you, who know more about cars than me, might judge differently. So if I had to choose again, I would pick the Style King Cobra. That was a beautiful car. It should be with the Buick getting a gold medal!

In all honesty, I wanted to put it in my first article about the Hot Rod show. But, in every photo I took, someone was in the background. The picture you see here is the one with the fewest people.

There was also a GT 500 Ford Mustang that was a beauty. Unfortunately, by the time I got around to photographing it, the crowd was too big. So many people were around it. Wouldn’t it be a thrill to see that muscle car on a Tokyo street?

My main complaint about this type of event is the number of people. They are always so crowded. It makes photography difficult. I shouldn’t complain, though.

The other cars were all great. It’s challenging to rank them objectively. How about you? Do you have any favorites? And if you went to the show or a prior one, let us know what you think of it.
