Honda Collective NYC 2022 in Photos… Part 2…

Honda Collective NYC 2022 in Photos… Part 2…

When we last left off, myself and the rest of the enthusiasts who had gathered for the Honda Collective were preparing to move to our next stop. The Riverside Drive Overpass was a fantastic location to shoot at but we were all looking forward to see what photos we could get in one of New York City’s most iconic locations; Times Square. I had shot cars there in the past but it was always during the late evenings. We had similar gatherings before whenever Wekfest was in town but it had been a few years since we had done a pre-meet in the city. Those photos always came out pretty epic so I wondered how it would be during the day…

A few days after I returned home from my trip out east for Wekfest, I was contacted by my friend Edwin from Prime NYC about possibly attending a Honda event out there. The first-ever “Honda Collective” happened last year around this same time and I was interested in seeing it for myself. The Honda builds over there have vastly improved over time and a couple of them had definitely captured my attention. Out here in the West Coast, the Honda community has seemingly cooled down and most of the serious builds have gone back into hiding. The younger enthusiasts have their eyes on BMWs and other makes now while the older diehard Honda enthusiasts generally keep to themselves, building their cars away from the social media spotlight. There are still really fantastic Honda builds here at home but I’d be lying if I said we had any sort of ‘collective’ here. Times are just different now so seeing a committed grouping of Honda guys in a different part of the country was of interest to me. We chatted about possibly collaborating on an event together but the winter season came and went while I was busy working on things at home so nothing ever came to fruition. I always thought that it would be cool to have a Chronicles anniversary event out there but I’m having enough issues with trying to have something again out here so my focus was strictly home-based…

A Weekend In New York City With The Honda Collective…

I was recently invited by some fellow enthusiasts out to New York City to attend the second-annual “Honda Collective” event hosted by Prime and the boys from NAR. After I got back from my trip to Wekfest East, they contacted me to see if I wanted to be a special guest at their event. It would consist of a meet-up in New Jersey, followed by a cruise over to New York where we’d make a stop in Harlem for photos before eventually cruising through Times Square. The whole thing sounded pretty elaborate with a lot of thought put behind it so it was an honor to be invited! The Honda community out East is as strong as it has ever been so it was important for me to show them som e support as many of them have also put their faith in The Chronicles over the years. This was a blast! Huge thanks to everyone there for being so great.
