Here’s some more images of Honda’s that were present at SEMA 08. Honda barely made a presence at this year’s show. Of course as expected, it was dominated by the new Nissan GTR and Dodge Challenger. The lack of a Honda presence most likely has to do with the lack of corporate backing. The big name tuner companies are all headed in a different direction and pumping money into newer makes and models. A majority of the better Honda builds have come from owners who fund their own projects. It’s almost a welcome change because Honda owners are headed back to the stage where they originally started: in the garage. I personally love garage built cars over shop-built/sponsored cars. I think it adds more character to any build as well as a more involved sense of ingeniuity. People in general tend to respect a garage-built show stopper over any shop-built project. That’s how it started and that’s how it is meant to be. It’s no real knock on sponsored/company-backed vehicles, but doing your own thing makes it more of a hobby. When you get a car, you want to “make it your’s”, not pay for someone to “make it their’s”, you catch my drift? Anyway, more pics, less jibber-jabber…
Amuse widebody w/hardtop….looks pretty sweet. Wheels on the other hand, bleh….but it’s probably there because of the wheel company…Like those deals where you roll in and ditch the wheels immediately afterwards? Haha…I’ve known a couple of people from my old crew that used to do that.
And a Pilot….
