Cali Accord Meet ’16 – Wagons & Odyssey

Family haulers with character and style

Jul 1, 2016

Consider this a tease of things to come from our coverage of the Cali Accord Meet (CAM) 2016. From the event that celebrates an unusual Honda tuner platform comes the most unusual of the lot – a niche within a niche, if you will. Ladies and gentlemen, these are our favorite Accord wagons and Odyssey minivans from this year’s CAM.

We have nothing but love for the owners of these vehicles, because they take the relatable approach of modifying a mundane grocery-getter and apply it to models and trims seemingly reserved for nothing but utility. Seriously – who puts an MPV on airbags and huge rims? Dresses up the engine bay and scours the Internet for JDM gear engineered for Japanese equivalents of their family hauler? Well, these people do.

We didn’t notice any Odyssey at CAM that weren’t first gen., and while all of them weren’t complete makeovers, they were massaged just enough that we could totally see ourselves doing the same to our minivan if we had one. On the Accord wagon end of things, it’s all about two generations of chassis, the fourth generation CB9 and fifth gen. CE1 – really the last two generations of Accord in North America to have a wagon version.

The wagon that announced via its license plate “1SIK CB9” wasn’t joking – it was pretty sweet. Rocking clear corners and what looked like repurposed TL Type S rims, we also dug the Word Werx refinished front brake calipers on the blue CB9. The car to really set the standard, though, was the dark gray CE1 that was heavily Mugen-ified. When it showed up on MF8 wheels and sporting a rear spoiler that we’d never seen before, it was love at first sight.
