SEEKER Japan Visit 2016…

After visiting Spoon Sports that morning, we stopped to grab some lunch before making our way over to SEEKER. I didn’t originally plan to go to SEEKER but we showed up at Spoon Sports so early that day that it left us a pretty sizable gap in time after lunch. I remember SEEKER being not too far away so I asked Yasu to give us a ride over there. The shop itself sounded interesting and I always wanted to see their fleet of orange Hondas. We had no idea how the situation would look like when we arrived since it had snowed so much early that morning. Upon arrival, we saw a lot filled with Hondas, most covered in thick piles of snow. This prevented us from getting really detailed looks at any of the vehicles but I was still excited to see what they had to offer. I’ve attached the Vlog below just in case you missed it…

Though I had never been to Seeker prior to this trip, I’d known about the company and their history for a number of years now. I’ve even written a couple stories for some of their cars whenever they were featured in popular publications here in the States…

The shop itself is not very big so most of their cars were relegated to the outside lot where all the snow from the week had piled-up. This BB2/BB4 Prelude on Volk Racing SE37Ks stood out like a sore thumb among a sea of Civics, Fits, and S660s….

It’s so rare to see these Prelude modded anywhere in Japan these days. I believe this one was the only one of this generation that I saw the entire trip…

The S660 seems to be getting quite popular in Japan. There weren’t that many on the streets yet but every tuning shop we went to seemed to have decided to build the new S660…

It’s crazy how small these things are. I mean, photos don’t really do it justice or show its true size. The Fit next to it in this photo looked huge compared to the new roadster…

Only in Japan will you see a Mugen RR sitting out in the snow nonchalantly…

The RR doesn’t need much work as it comes from the factory in pretty potent form. This Mugen RR at SEEKER had a set of AP Racing big brakes along with a set of Volk Racing C345 Ultra Light wheels…

This AP1 S2000 had a pretty unique color to it paired with a set of Volk Racing RE30…

Inside their workshop area was n NSX that was getting serviced by one of the SEEKER technicians…

IMG_6846-Edit

I didn’t get a chance to get very close to it but I could tell it was an NA2 NSX on Prodrive wheels with mild aero upgrades…

IMG_6856-Edit

It was really cool to see the ass end of the NSX poking out of the service area with its center-exit exhaust peeking through…

Another angle from inside their shop area…

…and that pretty much wraps up this set. There wasn’t much going on and we were a bit short of time since we still had to head over to FEEL’S Honda Twin Cam that afternoon. In the next update, I’ll probably throw up that set. Stay tuned and thanks for looking…

Oh, here’s the Vlog covering our visit to SEEKER in case you missed it…

  1. THANK YOU for getting shots of the Prelude!!! I was hoping to see something on it in the video, so this is cool. Wasn’t until about the third or fourth look at it that I noticed the vented hood…
