11 years going, Honda Day brought yet another great event. Compared to the last few years, I have to say this year was a lot more organized and well run. Granted arriving at the venue at 6am, there was hardly any traffic getting to the track. Great job and I hope this continues in the future. Another change this year was the addition of a VIP car show section. Competitors, prior to the event, had to submit photos of their car in order to be entered into this section and I thought this was great. It was nice to have the more elite class of cars in one section rather than to have to weed them out throughout the 800 other cars that attend the show. On the other side of the bleachers was some exciting drag racing. 8 second turbo civics and 9 second all motor cars running down the 1320. I can remember when I first started going out to races, if you were running 10’s or even 11’s, that was considered Fast. Anyways, congrats to OGS for putting on another great event and putting together a fantastic give-a-way car. For those that wasn’t able to make it, click the photos above to jump to the gallery.
The Arco meet isn’t your typical meet where you expect thousands or even hundreds of cars to show up. It’s actually more like a gathering of friends just kickin back and having a few beers together. This year however, they were taking donations for a good friend that recently had their car stolen to get him back on his feet. I look forward to this meet every year because the quality of cars that come out aren’t what you normally see at other meets or even shows. Check out the photos and I hope to see some more quality cars come out next year.
A couple of my buddies have similar taste when it comes to modding civics. Its not too often that Andy’s coupe and Joeham’s hatch are seen together so I had to jump at the chance to snap some pictures of them together. From the front end, besides the height difference, it would be hard to tell whose car is whose until you make your way around the cars. The Work RSZ-R’s and a load of JDM goodies accent the non-pink milano red paint. Lots more can be said about these cars but you’ll just have to wait for the details. Enjoy the pix!
Knowing some of the people I know, I was lucky enough to get invited out to this meet. This isn’t your average meet at your local Best Buy. These guys have some of the illest rides with some of the rarest JDM parts on the East Coast. Sadly, I was only able to stay for a short time as I know more cars had shown up after I had left.
Enjoy the pictures…
While most of the popular aftermarket manufacturers in Japan are welcoming the hybrid craze with open arms, Spoon Sports has been quiet as of late. This can mostly be attributed to the fact that Spoon focuses and specializes with the Honda platform, and quite honestly, Honda hasn’t had an attractive enough hybrid platform in the recent years. But this is all about to change, with the CR-Z gaining a lot of momentum as the new “hot-hatch” appealing to passionate Honda aficionados worldwide. Read the full article HERE.
