I promised myself that I would get some sleep this year because last year I crashed super hard when I got home from Nisei. I set a goal to be in bed by 3:30am and it is now 3:28 am, just hours away from the 2011 Nisei Showoff event and I am pretty excited because this year, I am bringing you guys what might be might of the best collection of Honda builds ever. Just because of the pure history of some of these builds and how many of them were landmark builds in the West Coast Honda community. There are some Hondas that are appearing today that haven’t been at an event since 2005! If you can even grasp that. For you older guys it may not seem like that long ago, but if you really sit back and think about it, man, it has been almost 7 years. In my collaborative effort with Ken Myoshi from Showoff, I set out to have a collection of some of the best Hondas from the past, present, and near future, and this group that I have brought together couldn’t have been any better. Of course there were some cars that I really wanted out there but they just couldn’t make it, or the guys are long gone from the car scene. Either way, this line-up is going to be SICK….


I wanted to keep the roster a secret and debut it at the show, but since we are only a couple hours away anyhow, here is what is in store for Nisei 2011 at the “GENERATIONS” section, presented by none other than THE CHRONICLES…
