Last time I was down in Kobe I met up with a couple of S-class owners that had their cars prepared by the creators of the whole VIP movement, Junction Produce. These two cars show how VIP can now be applied to any car, from the Scion bB's that are so popular in the US right now, to a couple of "gaishas" (foreign cars, not traditional Japanese escorts!) like the Benzes above. Although after spending a day with Taketomi-san, the president of Junction Produce, I discovered that hardcore VIP aficionados wouldn't be caught dead in anything but a real "bippu" car. More on this soon, for now enjoy the shot above!
