Eibach Honda Meet 2012 Coverage…Part 4 of 4…The Finale…

IMG_8178

WWhat’s folks… Here is the 4th and final installment of The Chronicles’ 2012 Eibach Honda Meet Coverage. I’m going to try my best to get through all of the photos today and not keep you guys waiting until the next week. Normally, this would be relatively easy for me to  do if I was sitting in front of my regular computer but I am currently sitting on the balcony of the Honua Kai Resort & Spa in Maui, Hawaii. It’s about 9pm here (12am Pacific Standard Time) and I finally had a chance to sit down and go over some emails. By the time you see this it’ll be well past that time though as I will be uploading this update late in the afternoon Friday. The internet isn’t the best but it’s probably better than I’ve yet to experience at any other hotel/resort I’ve been to. I’m working on a lap top that isn’t even mine but again, I want to be able to get this update out so it’s not backlogged until next week or the late weekend. You may be asking yourself why I’m fucking with the site while I’m in a beautiful place like Hawaii on vacation but that shows my dedication to my craft. That and well, it’s our first night here and everybody is relaxing so why not crank out an update right? Hawaii is amazing and I plan to have a wonderful time here watching my boy DPK David marry his long time love Jaclyn. These past two months have just been so hectic and crazy that I could really use a vacation like this right about now… I know a lot of the times you guys think we have this perfect life and how we do all this great stuff but I promise you, it’s just a very condensed version of what we do. Many of the other days you don’t see, we are slaving away and working our asses off to have a better life…

Anyways, today will conclude my coverage of Eibach 2012. Photos will include some cars but also a lot of other random stuff that I was able to get since the event slowed down by the late afternoon. A majority of people had left by then and the remaining people were just sticking around to hang out with their friends. Vendors were cleaning up and most of us were just chillin’ at the booth…

Despite the madness that surrounded the morning, I felt that it was a very good event. It’s hard to compare this with the ones of year’s past because this was a completely new experience. I think no matter what, many will always prefer the old Eibach events in their original home in Corona, CA. That’s where it all began and that’s where many developed their greatest memories of the Eibach Honda Meets. Things change over time though and inevitably, we all have to grow. This event outgrew the Eibach facility by leaps and bounds and the Irwindale version just showed how big this event has gotten over the years. Where, when, and if the Eibach Honda Meet will happen again remains a question, but you can rest assured that the staff is working hard to improve it from year’s past and taking steps to make things easier for everyone…

My hope is that all of you enjoyed the event as much as we did. Many of us helped and we worked our asses off in the morning. Even though it was stressful and trying, we all still had a great time and would do it again without hesitation. Now, enjoy these last set of photos and I look forward to seeing all of you again at the next Eibach Honda Meet, wherever it will take place…

Here are links to the previous three possts if you missed any of it. I encourage you to take a look at them if you haven’t. There were some great cars this year that you may have not seen before…

It’s rare to see Epsilon mesh wheels these days and even more rare to see them on Hondas. This set looks like it may have been refinished and re-lipped but I don’t know how I feel about seeing them on a DC2 chassis…

IMG_8157sized

Big Mike’s Prelude of course, on black Volk SE37K…. Larger Version (1400×933)

May’s new dessert business venture, Love is Sweet Desserts, was out at Eibach 2012 with a booth and had cupcakes on sale for everyone that was hungry… So far things have been going good for her and she’s picked-up a lot of business…. I’m proud of her and hope that she continues moving forward with it because I think she’s on to a good thing…

IMG_8196

Slammed EF sedan on Work Ewing mesh wheels…I believe this is the same EF that participated in the “So You Think You Can STANCE” event and was just taking chunks of pavement out of the ground because the owner was just down to fuck his undercarriage up…Funny because Tony from It’s JDM Yo!! brought up the idea of doing something like that in Japan to Takeshi and Takeshi responded with “We can’t do that in Japan because people in Japan care about their cars”…haha…

Everything was for sale at the NWP and Chronicles booth, at one point we even tried to sell Maddox but people kept asking for a t-shirt if they bought the baby and that’s just plain ridiculous…

Big Steve’s LS400 wasn’t a Honda but it was there that day because Steve stopped by to hang out as well as help out at the Autofashion USA booth… Weird because we never get to see him drive this thing anywhere but he ends up showing up in it at a all-Honda event…

IMG_8370
