Norm Reeves Honda 2011 Car Show/Toy Drive Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

Happy Thursday all…the holidays are fast approaching so I hope you can read this generic comment I have about Christmas and shopping and what not. Anyways, back now with part 2 of the annual Norm Reeves Honda Car Show/Toy Drive coverage. Just two parts to this series of coverage because there weren’t that many cars there and I think I covered most of the ones that caught my eye. One of you guys commented and asked where the del Sol coverage was and I apologize. Apparently I missed out on the del Sols so maybe I’ll catch you guys at the next event. The only del Sol that caught my eye was the one with the crazy Lambo doors and I try not to take too many photos of high-end exotics because they don’t fit my demographic so I didn’t photograph it. With that said, let’s get going with the second and final portion of the Norm Reeves coverage…

Let’s kick it off with some photos of the Bisimoto Engineering 2012 Honda Civic Si coupe…I hope you guys enjoy this build because you’ll be seeing a lot more of it on the cover of the upcoming issue of Super Street magazine…

Many of you won’t notice, a few of you will, but I’ve seen some comments on various forums where they raised the issue with the angle of how the turbocharger was mounted on the K24z7. Yes, Bisi was aware of the issue after the manifold was fabricated but with SEMA going on, he didn’t get a chance to assess the situation. Since SEMA, adjustments have been made with the manifold and now the angle of the turbo has been corrected…

After going through my photos from that day, I realized that I had not taken any photos of the exterior of ATS Anh’s Integra Type R….This is the only shot I have of anything related to the exterior aesthetics but trust me, it looks just about the same as it has the majority of the year. He did sell his Mugen Gen. II wing recently though so he’s been rocking the wingless ITR look. The car has been down at ASC Speed Metal for the last couple months getting some new additions to the bay and I’ll show you some pics of it right now…

An overview of the bay from both angles… you’ll notice right away that the teal-coated ITB horns are gone and there are a couple new additions. The front strut/shock tower bar has been re-done as well…

Custom engine breather unit made by ASC, color-matched to the same teal that exists in the bay…

Custom oil catch can also made by ASC…

ASC emblem on the strut bar…

Polished ITB horns…

…and a shot of Anh’s wheel and brake set-up…

A couple shots of DPK David’s EJ1 coupe…

After I finished walking around inside, I took a glance out the door and noticed that it had started to rain… People still stuck around though and didn’t let the downpour affect them…

I don’t really know what the deal with the blue tape on the corner of the bumpers was, but I really liked how this Honda Fit looked…The color and aero set-up just flowed really well with the wheels…

Volk TE37s have always been a popular choice among our crowd, but it’s not that often that you run into a set of TE37 Cup wheels…

Another shot of the JDM EF2 conversion on this white Civic 4-door…

Both CR-Zs stuck around even though it continued to rain…

Man, this is a blast from the past…Haven’t heard the name “Cyber Racing” in quite some time. If you don’t know, Cyber Racing is probably one of the original Honda car crews from back in the early 90s. I think it was around 1988 when it all started. Tony Fuchs and a couple others started that group and were drag racing before there were any corporate sponsors, internet forums, anything “online” in essence…Pretty wild to see that they are still being represented…They were known back in the day as one of the first “11-second” car clubs in our community…oh how times have changed…

I don’t know why, maybe because of the rain, but I decided to head back inside to take some more detail shots of Bisi’s 2012 Civic…

AEM’s high output ignition coils being represented on the Golden Eagle intake manifold of Bisi’s Civic…

Bisi’s Turbonetics 72mm mid-frame turbocharger….

I walked back outside and snapped another photo of the Bisimoto Honda Civic Wagon…

The crowd was by no means large, but there was definitely a steady group of enthusiasts walking around…

Michael Mao’s Taitec JGTC 2000-type front bumper…

His brother, Bay Mao’s Honda S2000 on custom Mugen M7…

A couple more of the Basis CR-Z on Spoon Sports CR93 wheels…

Umm… Jagged S2000 fender – 1, Nitto NT01 tire – 0….

Jerry-Built turbocharged FG2 Civic coupe…

Accord coupe with a massive Volk wheel and tire combo…

Acura RSX from Royal Origin…

Acura TSX with some Enkei RPF1s…

Saw this dude wiping his car down after the rain stopped and he mentioned that he drove all the way down from San Luis Obispo for the Norm Reeves meet…some real dedication right there…

Spotted this beauty parked across the street during the meet…owner was probably there to visit some of his friends from Japanese Nostalgic Car magazine, which had a booth at the show…

Oh I couldn’t end the coverage without displaying some of the more interesting Hondas at the meet….these guys took the saying “racks on racks on racks” to a whole new level…One dude had a motorcycle, the other a Gyno-chair, madness I tell you, madness….

That pretty much wraps it up for the coverage… after the raffle and awards for the show were announced, we gathered up our belongings and took off to go grab some lunch…

I don’t know if you guys are at all interested, but I included a desktop image for you guys….the shot was pretty random but I liked how it came out so I turned it into a 1080P-sized wallpaper…

Desktop Version (1920×1080)…

Thanks for looking…
