Here we have Takaaki Igawa’s 2008 Sparking Black Mica Mazda6 GH5FW wagon coming to you from Joetsu-shi, Niigata, Japan. For those of you in North America this is second generation of the Mazda 6, and the start of the unavailability of the wagon body style because of poor sales, and CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) regulations. But, elsewhere in the world this was not the case.
There is no doubt that Facebook is the primary social media to share our day to day lives with friends and even strangers, and that includes sharing our passions/interests. So, we decided to resurrect our Facebook group for all to share their love with fellow MF lovers. Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MazdaFitment/

Tuner Evolution is a well-known car show over on the east coast of the USA; known for putting together quality throughout their tour spots. With 10 years of experience, they have expanded the Tuner Evolution tour to include Daytona Beach, Florida. Here is a photo dump of that weekend that brought people from surrounding states to Florida.
Section5 in East Japan is a car show and music festival, which is a first new event in Japan, where such a fusion was made. It was held at an university in Nasu, Tochigi. At the university, they transformed an area in a club with a DJ playing throughout the day. So, if you are into cars or the music, either can be enjoyed. Here are some of the Mazdas that came through the event, but there was plenty of other makes/models out too.
What is KINOD?
Krispy Kreme, In&Out, and Drive. It is a weekly Miata meet located in the City of Industry in California that brings out Southern California’s finest roadsters out on a weekly bases. However, on July 17th it was the KINOD 10 year anniversary meet to celebrate the history this meet has for the Miata, and the automotive community in general. Simple just a fun meet to come out and socialize.
As you can see from the pictures there were plenty of roadsters of all styles, as well as other makes that came to this event to show love.
What is Itasha style?
This Japanese term was coined to those individuals who stylized their cars with fictional anime/manga, or video game characters, which is done with the use of vinyl (stickers) throughout the entire body of the car in a Itasha livery type fashion or partial areas as you will see below.
This is definitely not everyone, but nothing really is. For Nathan Villalon’s 1st generation Mazdaspeed 3 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida; it’s the perfect blend of two of his passions: cars and anime/manga.
Like most automotive enthusiasts, Nathan drew his inspirations from Japan, but for him it was more specifically the onikyan style.
A veteran here on MazdaFitment.com, we have, Yoshiyuki Hamasaki’s 2001 Sunburst Yellow RX-7 FD3S at the Yoshima parking area with the Seto Ohashi Bridge behind.
A bunch of our Mazda Fitment Japan friends gathered together recently to put together the first Low Foot Mazda meet up held in Shizuoka, Japan.
Plenty of variety in models and style. Enjoy the photo dump from this meet up.
Garett Ferguson’s 1991 Crystal White 1.6L Miata from Alberta, Canada.
Not too long ago Nate King’s 2010 Black Mica Pearl Mazda 3 sport hatchback from Dallas, Texas looked like this: Texas MZ3. In about 6 months the car was transformed to be wider and cleaner than ever before.
Suspension was updated with stiffer rates, and a custom wide body was done by Jose Murillo at Jose’s Autobody.
