Eibach Honda Meet 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

What’s up folks. I just wanted to thank everyone for taking the time out to read the previous post about the Hope Night Meeting in Japan. Everyone over there is really overwhelmed by the response and all the positive messages sent their way in regards to the boy Yuki and his health. Even the guys at Super Street magazine got together and put a care package together for him. As mentioned, his time is short but hopefully he sticks around as long as he can because a lot of people out there care about him and his well being. If there is any news I’ll be sure to let everyone know. Thank you all again for caring and reading through the piece…

Today, we’re going to get back on schedule with the second half of the Eibach Honda Meet photos. Unlike year’s past, I really condensed my coverage this year and really captured what I wanted to post up on the site. In the past I think I’ve gotten a little crazy and just tried to capture as much as possible and the posts just became way too long. I walked the lot a couple of times to make sure I gave everyone an equal opportunity for me to see their cars but honestly, it is just very difficult to be able to see everything while managing a booth and stopping to chat with people. What you see is what I got and are also the cars that caught my eye. I’m happy to see there there were some new cars out and about that day because we have so many events out here that you just end up seeing the same cars all the time. I think that is what makes the Eibach Honda Meet special. Some guys save their builds specifically to showcase at this event and you get to see some stuff that you won’t see anywhere else. With that said, enjoy the photos below… Wekfest Los Angeles stuff comes next….

The engine bay of Johnnyfame’s Civic hatchback that you also saw above in the featured image. There’s a lot going on with this car but it seems to have a very track-oriented feel to it with a host of good parts…

IMG_8150-Edit

Chargespeed wide fenders up front, flares in the rear, cut rear bumper with a custom metal diffuser and a Osaka JDM Devil Wing for that bit of style. Overall a really cool build that I’d never had a chance to see before. Nice job…

Always been a fan of Sintype’s coupe and how it never seems to change. Engine bay is nice and clean and I love the subtle touches like the SiR bumpers and the silver Desmond EVO wheels. There’s a consistent theme throughout the car and it is just timeless. He even has the OG Chronicles decal on the windshield before I slightly altered the design…

I really enjoy seeing cars that make you remember a specific time period when you look at it. To me, that is what makes a really good build; when you can remember the time period and how you felt about the cars when you saw them. This hatchback that you see above is a Honda build straight out of the early-to-mid 2000s. To me, that was the West Coast Honda community in its prime and simple builds like this dominated the scene. There’s nothing crazy about it, no shaved bay or crazy boost set-up. Just a simple build with parts that made Japanese-style tuning popular here in the States. Just spectacular and a round of applause for this. Seeing this build makes me miss the days of old…

This is a set-up that will never get old; Midori Green hatch with EK4 SiR bumpers and black Spoon SW388s…

IMG_8213-Edit

Pepper White EK that you’ve seen plenty of times here on The Chronicles. Yet another nice build that I always try to capture whenever I see it. For this year’s Eibach Honda Meet, he came out on a set of white Advan RG wheels. Not sure if the two whites work together but I do love RGs…

Closing it out with some photos of this coupe belonging to the guy runs EnjoyLifeDriveSlow (or however its spelled). Dude straight ripped photos off from me in the past and cropped my watermarks out which kind of pissed me off but I’ve come to learn that I should just move on and not worry about it. Good luck to those guys over there. Some day there will be no more Stickydiljoe.com and I hope the future generations understand the importance of creating their own content and moving the community forward in the right direction. Maybe these guys will learn. In the mean time, the car doesn’t look half bad so here it is…

In any case, thanks for looking folks. Have a good one and I hope you enjoyed the coverage…

  1. Nice one man, seeing this was like a time warp for me (2008 -pre stance) haha, nice to see the honda guys keeping it real & reminding me how much i love this jdm inspired movement.. while i enjoy most trends this was the one that i really got into & still appreciate the most.

  2. Sick coverage !! Hey Joe, when i saw that odyssey up there it reminded me of yours, do you have any plans for your RA3 or are you building something or what? Just curious lol
