Cali Accord Meet 3 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

What’s up everyone, hope you’re having a good Friday so far. Today we’re gonna look at the second half of the Cali Accord Meet 3 coverage. There isn’t that much more to go through and I actually got some stuff I need to take care of before this Father’s Day weekend so I’m gonna go ahead and dive right into the coverage. Thanks to Ralph and the rest of the Cali Accord Meet organizers for having me. It was a pleasure to be there and I wish them the best in the future…

Cali Accord Meet 3 Coverage…Part 1 of 2…

Here’s the rest…

As mentioned yesterday, the third Cali Accord Meet brought out a pretty sizable crowd of Accord enthusiasts. Here they are all gathered in anticipation for the raffle announcements…

Ralph handling the raffle and chatting with the crowd…

A closer look at Ricardo’s CB7 sedan, which as mentioned, has been confirmed for a feature in an upcoming issue of Honda Tuning magazine…

His re-barreled Mugen M7 wheels…

IMG_5818-Edit

Classic Nardi woodgrain steering wheel. You know his CB is an early model Accord because it still has the automatic sliding seatbelts, whereas the 92-93 chassis did not…

His H22A swap with wrinkle blue F20B valve cover. I believe that the GReddy oil cap and GReddy/TRUST header on his car were once mine. Cool to see that the parts live on in another CB that will soon be in HT…

Clean Accord coupe on polished Work Emotion CR Kai…

A 6th gen. Accord coupe on AME Tracer wheels…

One more of the VIP-inspired Acura CL coupe…

IMG_5852-Edit

Ralph’s coupe that I now remember seeing during the Falken Tire advertorial shoot months ago…

IMG_5856-Edit

Tommy’s RA1 Honda Odyssey from Fast Eddie’s Racing never fails to impress….

The cornerstone of this build is the reverse-head swapped H22A…The head is the easiest thing to spot but there are also a ton of other things done to it. Because of the reversed-head a custom exhaust manifold had to be created, the H-motor also has individual throttle bodies and little things like the VTEC solenoid also had to be relocated because of the flipped head. Another quick observation reveals a AEM C.O.P (coil over plug) set-up…Great build. Check it out in Honda Tuning’s “Odd Swaps” issue…

Henry Pulido’s RA3 Odyssey slammed on Privat wheels. I say “Slammed” because this is about as low as a Odyssey can go. The upper control arms are already resting on the shock towers at this point and I’ve been trying to figure out a way to get mine lower without having that issue myself…

IMG_5861-Edit

Odd combination of parts here with the VIP-styled dish wheels and the Stillen front lip…

IMG_5867-Edit

Clean CB coupe on Sprint Hart CP-Rs. The owner is a super nice dude and there were so many H-swaps there that it almost felt weird to see an Accord with the stock F22 motor in it, haha…

IMG_5869-Edit

Tommy and Kevin from Fast Eddie’s Racing chatting with like-minded enthusiasts…

IMG_5871-Edit

One more of Timmy’s classic CB coupe with Xenon front lip and Racing Hart CP-035…

IMG_5758-Edit

Before I go I thought I’d give you guys some more shots of Iakona’s Accord. His build is very unique but there are certain styling points about it that would make it a little difficult to be featured in a magazine, like having air suspension and a roll bar, and ITBs and what not, so I thought I’d spend some more time showing the car off here on The Chronicles….

IMG_5875-Edit

IMG_5877-Edit

The most eye-catching exterior modification of his Accord sedan has to be the re-barreled Dunlop Formula Hart wheels…

IMG_5881-Edit

Seated behind the Hart wheels is a big brake kit from VTTR…

IMG_5898-Edit

IMG_5882-Edit

Glossy white H22 valve cover and his TWM individual throttle bodies…

IMG_5885-Edit

A better look at his STACK tachometer…

IMG_5888-Edit

…and his Mugen FG360 wheel. In the distance inside his glove box you can spot his paddle switches for his air suspension. Also not the blue shift boot that was done…

IMG_5890-Edit

…to match his Sparco seats and re-wrapped rear seats…

IMG_5893-Edit

Nice touch swapping out the Accord rear window insert with an “Aska” piece. For those that don’t know, the Aska is actually the Accord that was sold under the Isuzu label overseas, similar to the Honda Odyssey/Isuzu Oasis. Pretty rare to see Aska stuff here in the U.S. as the Isuzu version was never sold here in the U.S. There were subtle differences with the car like the headlights and what not but overall, it was basically a re-badged Accord. Here’s a photo of it for reference…

IMG_5725-Edit

I didn’t get any photos of my Odyssey since it is in rough shape right now but here’s a back window with some of my favorite sites and companies that I support. Thanks for looking guys. Have a great weekend….

One thought

  1. Nice coverage as usual, I love Iakona’s Accord. I had a hand me down that was the same color so that car definitely hits the “spot” for me. Even though your car got cannibalized, it’s still good that some of the parts have gone on to some nice CB’s
