2007 Tokyo Motor Show: Japanese Carmaker Premieres

If there’s one thing we’d really, really like to do in October that would definitely be to attend the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. But, since there’s no money, there’s no Tokyo honey –at least for this year. To compensate we’re trying our best to cover the Tokyo Show right off from the very beginning. And to be honest, we’re very challenged by the fact that it’s a tad more difficult for us to concentrate information for the Tokyo Show compared to major US or European auto salons.
