Hey guys,

finally getting around to organizing some photos. Here's a bunch I took when I did a day trip via bullet train from Tokyo to the Kobe region. The rep from the auction broker I used took me for lunch, a tour of the Kobe auction (second largest in Japan, 10,000 cars per week) then up to their office in Nishiomya before dropping me off in Osaka to catch the train home.

It was a great day and one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in Japan (besides driving a LHD hummer in Tokyo!).

I don't feel like copy-pasting a ton of links, so the gallery is here:

and maybe I can post a link to the slideshow here:

It sold the next day. I wanted to bid, but I think it was a late 2000 build date or something. Sold for 585 so someone got a helluva deal.

The parking garage was where all the covered cars were, plus pretty much anything euro. That's where the brabus was. Mostly I was walking through checking out all the cars, forgot to take alot of pics!
