Throwback - Nagoya Japan trip 2011

Back in 2011 we went to Japan for the first time. Our destination was the Mooneyes Hot Rod & Custom Show in Yokohama Japan, but our journey to get there (a few days in Nagoya) was just as amazing.  Toshi (then Local hero, now Deadend Magazine) picked us up from the airport and the tour of shops began...

Our first stop was at Art's Body.
