Having made his way through a large portion of the show and putting together a photo gallery for our initial coverage, pbskids's front man headed back to Osaka Auto Messe to take in more of the massive affair. This time around he had enough time to get a little closer to some of the standout cars on display and collect some additional photos.

Like any Japanese aftermarket event, '90s-era cult classics can be found in every other booth. It's one of the main reasons this event is so high on our annual events list. Along with the staples, you'll also find a number of modern offerings, as well as concepts that give you a glimpse into the future.

As expected, Nissan builds took up the majority of real estate at the show...

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Phoenixs Power R35
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Volk Racing Te037 Dura

PHOENIX's POWER brought out their aero enhanced R35 that rides on Volk Racing TE037 Duras tucked under flared and finned front fenders.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Origin Labo S15
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Origin Labo Nissan S15

This S15 from Origin Labo features an array of the brand's top aero pieces, including their complete Racing Line body kit, under panel set, canards, GT-wing, and fenders.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Er34 Skyline

With a Z Tune front end and 18x9.5 Nismo wheels on the outside, along with a host of GReddy, Tomei and HKS goodies under the hood, this sedan looked picture perfect.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Club RH9 R34 Skyline
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 RH9 R34 Skyline
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Nissan Rb26

From Club RH9, this R34 was pretty mild on the outside, sporting little more than 18x10.5 Volk TE37SL. However, under the hood is where it shines, packing a 1,000-plus horsepower punch!

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Widebody Nissan Skyline
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Greddy Intake Manifold

This sedan throws subtle out the window entirely with its angular arches and aggressive fin treatment.

Although they outgunned the other manufacturers, there was still plenty to see outside of the Nissan circle...

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Three S Design Lc500
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Three S Design Lc500
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Three S Design Lc500

The LC 500 certainly held its own at this year's show, and continues to grow its fan base. This version features a Three-S Design "Division" body kit and massive 21-inch Haila Diamond rollers.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Lexus Gt300 Car

And if you were looking for something a little more competitive from Lexus, this carbon bodied GT300 car should do the trick.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Nsx Gt Concept

On the more modern end of the spectrum, this line up of GT cars, which included the NSX GT concept you see in the foreground, pulled in a huge crowd.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Subaru Sti
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Subaru Sti Concept

And speaking of concepts, Subaru's potential STI replacement, previously seen at the Japan Auto Show and TAS, made an appearance.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Gazoo Racing Super Sport Concept

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Mugen RC2GT Concept
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Mugen RC2GT Concept
  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Mugen RC2GT Concept

Mugen's RC20GT Concept, based on the FK8 Type R, debuted at Tokyo Auto Salon and since then has been bashed countless times by much of the automotive social media world. And while the outside didn't really do it for us—mostly due to the oversized wheels that, although 20 inch just like the OEM versions, looked even bigger and really don't suit the look of this chassis—the seats and digital display left a lasting impression.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Garage Km1 Subaru Wagon

Garage KM1's Subie is built for battle, featuring cut and extended front fenders, a Voltex rear wing atop its rear window, and Work wheels.

  |   Osaka Auto Messe 2018 Kuhl Racing Chr

We always expect some crazy body mods from Kuhl Racing. If you remember in recent years they've become well known for the intricate engraving work they apply to GT-Rs, vans, and other builds. This time around their C-HR was on display, using their new aero kit and trunk spoiler, but it's the paint everyone was talking about. Using a grinder and some incredible paintwork, they achieved a very unique look—even by Kuhl Racing standards.
