Custom cars attract attention at weekend Motor Show

Date Posted: 2010-12-02

The 5th annual Custom Motor Show is promising to outshine any car exhibition ever on Okinawa, with at least 70 custom cars –classics, hip-hops, street machines and muscle cars—available for visitors to ooh and ahh about their beauty on Sunday.

The event is taking place for the first time at the Convention Center in Ginowan, having been ousted from its venue in Mihama, where Depot Island is now located. “We want to expand the ways of having fun with vehicles on Okinawa, because Okinawa is one of the prefectures that’s unlike anywhere else in Japan,” says an organizer. “We don’t have any trains or subways, so we need to get cars or motorbikes for each person, and then get everyone to have their own colors or customizing.”

More than 70 custom cars are already signed up for the show, with five of the special cars coming from mainland Japan. Another 100 motorbikes are entered in competition. A fun aspect of Sunday’s event and competition is a Sexy Gal Contest, where ten participants will present their own program, with the winner getting prizes. The judging will be done by the audience, in between live music and dance shows.

The 5th Custom Motor Show opens at 11 a.m. Sunday, and runs to 7 p.m. Admission is ¥500, but is free to kids under 12 years of age. Parking is free, and there will be booths for food and beverage sales. Organizers say outside food and drink will not be permitted at the venue. Equally important, visitors are prohibited from touching the cars and bikes on display.

Information is available at Akamine Motors, 090-1944-8214, King Tacos at (098) 892-0705, Only Trucks at 090-1512-1549, Rody Make Z at 090-8663-9699, Real Chevy at (098) 897-0760, and Up Side at (098) 890-7380.
