Eibach Honda Meet 2015 Coverage…Part 1…

FINALLY. Holy shit man. The Eibach Honda Meet seems like so long ago now in retrospect. I just had so much Japan footage and coverage to put up that EVERYTHING just got pushed back a little over two weeks. I’m overwhelmed by the response that the newest Vlogs have been getting and I think the last part really helped to put a great finishing touch on that series. I hope to do more throughout the year but let’s be honest, that last one is going to be pretty hard to top….

In any case, we now finally arrive at the Eibach Honda Meet 2015 coverage. The show, as expected, had an incredible turnout and I was happy to be a part of it once again. The show just seems to get bigger every year and I found myself a bit lost when walking the lot by myself because the area was so vast that it was hard to really see everything there. I also had a booth to sell some Chronicles merchandise so I found myself in the vendor area more than anything. By the time I got to walking around the rest of the show, I noticed some cars had left. Even still, a bulk of many of the better builds in attendance were still around so I just captured what I could. The weather this year worked out perfectly. In the year’s past, it seemed incredibly hot in this particular area of Southern California and the weight of the heat just made it troublesome to venture the entire show. This year, it was nice. Hot still but a nice breeze carried through most of the day which made it much more bearable than in the years prior. I began shooting early in the morning when I arrived and then resumed the rest of my coverage in spurts. I would go up and down the rows and then take a break, and come back to finish the rest. There isn’t any particular order to the photos since I was going to and from but I think I was able to cover much of the show. There are still photos that I am going over so bear with me. That and I have online orders to process but it shouldn’t slow the posts down any. Enjoy the coverage and thanks for checking it out….

  1. Thanks for the pics, being sick in the heat must have been rad. Need to make it out to this once. Looks like a good mix of form and function coming together. I dig everything Honda, from weird to lame to amazing to innovative, as long as it is clean and ready for business.

  2. More Honda stuff… I was beginning to lose my way with my EF build. This site really keeps me inspired especially after Honda Tuning went away. Keep it up!
