spoon.

Left Yokohama another day to head off to Suginami in Tokyo, to check out Spoon, Type One, Seeker and Feel’s, which are all pretty close to one another. Reached Ogikubo station, and walked south down this one large street to get to Spoon.

If I understand correctly, this Spoon building is for their parts development? Maybe someone can confirm for me.
But anyways, the guy there was really nice, spoke to him for a little bit, took some pictures, and he gave me a catalogue and calendar, and one of those Option 1:64 scale cars of the Spoon S2000. This one:

On to the cars…

Nice to see a CL7 with slightly more aggressive aero on. Don’t see too many of those.

OEM Recaros. Nice.

The infamous Spoon S2000.

After stopping by ARQRAY, I hopped back on the Yokohama City Blue line to Center Kita, a few stations away from ARQRAY, and headed for T&E. Finding T&E was pretty easy, just headed down one street for a couple blocks and it was there. Didn’t take too many photos there, wasn’t much to see. It was the Friday before the weekend of D1GP in Odaiba as well, as I was told by the staff at T&E, and that SUI:VAX, was closed due to D1GP.

I love the Vertex Soarer that they had sitting outside though. Been feeling Soarer’s / Lexus SC’s in the last little while, and the Vertex kit has to be my favourite kit for that car. The Algernon Interlesse’s that it was sitting on are pretty nice too, haven’t seen a set locally before… at least for now.

The shop itself was kinda packed, I guess they were cleaning up or rearranging the displays and such.

T&E kits sitting around:

After Studie, I went to check out ARQRAY, whom makes some pretty nice exhausts. They’re pretty close to Studie, only a station or two away at Kitashinyokohama on the Yokohama City Blue line. The shop is really close to the station as well, maybe a 2-3 minute walk away.

Wasn’t much to see, and I couldn’t go into their garage area so I just have pics of their M6 sitting outside, sitting on Advan Model T7’s, with their titanium exhaust and I think their front lip? Not too sure about the lip part… but anyways…

High quality parts made in Japan!!!!!

z4 gt3.

Not sure when this was released, but I saw this on Studie’s blog… 2010 BMW Z4 GT3. Looks nothing short of amazing in my books, in painted and unpainted form.
