Eibach Honda Meet 2017 Coverage… Part 2…

I got word a couple days ago from Rodrez and Ryan from the Eibach Honda Meet that they’re currently working on the questions that I had for them for the next “Epilogues” post. I’m sure it will be a good read once we connect to talk about their long journey in this automotive community, but today, we’re going to continue going through the photos that I captured from this year’s event. I spent most of the time shooting in the vendor area but we did eventually make our way over to the other lot where the rest of the display vehicles were. You’ll see some of them towards the end of this post and in Part 3 of 3, you’ll see even more from that side of the event. The clouds made for some pretty epic photos so make sure to go through all of them and take a good look at some of these engine bays. There is a lot of good stuff in this post and many of these vehicles displayed here have great attention to detail and overall execution. For some of you who are still early-on in your builds and need some inspiration or ideas, these are probably the cars you want to look at. For those who are seasoned veterans in this Honda community, these are the cars you’ve come to appreciate, along with some new builds that you may not have seen before. There’s something for every Honda-lover here to see. Enjoy!…

You wouldn’t notice just be glancing at the engine bay but Ryan actually has a brand new, updated, Quaife sequential gearbox with billet housing. The car moves around now, the paddle shift system works, and all it really needs now is some time on the dyno for an adequate tune…

Still more to come, everyone have a great weekend and come back for the rest of the photo coverage!…

  1. I LOVE that JACCS tribute car! It’s so refreshing to see a Civic done in that style, compared to the very conservatively styled cars that we typically see in the U.S. I could see that car fitting right in, on the streets of Osaka’s Loop highway. Props to the owner for a well executed car.

  2. I hate to say it, but seems like every car is looking the same. Race-inspired, big turbo, gutted interior and bay. I miss the classic builds with OEM parts and rare JDM bits ie Alexs Mugen ITR. Maybe it’s just me.
