FIVE-AXIS SCIONS ON DISPLAY AT MOTORING ‘J’ STYLE
ALAMEDA, Calif., April 16, 2008 - Leading edge contemporary automotive stylist Troy Sumitomo will appear with a collection of his custom Five Axis Scion showcars at Motoring ‘J’ Style. Sumitomo, a California native and founder of Five Axis, has established himself in little over a decade as a rising star in the world of custom automobile design and fabrication. The one-day event, which is dedicated to Japanese car culture, will be held Saturday, May 24, at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo, Calif.
Five of Sumitomo’s Scion Five Axis creations will be on display in the Exposition Pavilion. The futuristic Scion xA Speedster is a highly modified open-air roadster with a unique underhood-mounted projection screen. The tangerine-hued Scion DJ xB has a mobile DJ booth complete with turntables, mixer and speakers integrated into the car’s frame. Other Five Axis Scions in the show include the Blackberry xB, Spec tC and Papaya xD. A full lineup of 2008 production Scions rounds out the exhibit.
Also on display will be the matte-black Five Axis modified Lexus Project IS-F which debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas last November. Five Axis body kits, wheels, paint, and aftermarket modifications will also be shown.
Besides these Scion and Lexus vehicles, Motoring ‘J’ style will include vintage pre-1985 Japanese roadsters, coupes and sedans, contemporary collectables, and tuner creations. Live drifting competitions and rally demonstrations will also take place at the expansive Fairgrounds.
