Honda released pics of three concept vehicles it's planning to show at the 2006 Tokyo Auto Salon — Japan's celebration of the aftermarket — this week: the Hybrid Modulo, Airwave Modulo, and Step Wagon Modulo. The cars, built to reflect various modes of customization, express the show's enthusiastically punctuated theme, which this year is "More! Active." The first (pictured) is a Civic hybrid seen through the eyes of the tuner crowd, the second is a wagon for older adults with JC Whitney—meets—Neiman Marcus appointments, and the third is a plush minivan for young, active-lifestyle types (which, in Japan, refers to those in their mid-30s who'd rather not have sex in their parents' apartments, where they live). The show starts this Friday the 13th (boo!) and runs until Sunday.
