A few quick notes:
The HSC delivers great visual impact. There's still uncertainty as to when we might see this styling on the road in the form of the next NSX, but I would be surprised if the all-new NSX doesn't appear in the '05 model year. Assuming it has at least the potential of the current NSX-R model (yes, I drove one in Tochigi - WOW!!), it's going to be a real gem.

The JDM Odyssey was a pleasant surprise, with details released just prior to my departure for Tokyo. I haven't driven one yet, but it has a very low driving position and a nicely aggressive stance, topped off by a beautifully executed interior. Unfortunately it seems that a 4-banger might be the only feasible power source, which diminishes the chances of seeing our own version here in the US.

The ASM Concept was about as production ready as any concept I've seen. It appeared to be a fully driveable vehicle, complete with DOT certified glass. Many parts and trim bits appeared to be lifted straight from the production line. Interestingly, several representatives from Honda's Lincoln, Alabama plant were on-hand at the show, leading me to conclude that the ASM is quite possibly a shortened version of the next generation US-market Odyssey. Note the rolldown rear windows in the sliding rear doors, dual zone climate control, 60/40 rear bench, 8-passenger seating, all seemingly in response to the '04 Sienna.

We have many more photos to share and several stories to tell. Stay tuned...
