There’s something uniquely cool about going to an event like Cali Accord Meet (CAM) and seeing examples of every generation – all nine of them – of Honda’s midsize workhorse on display in one place. Say what you will about using the Accord – generally viewed as a grocery-getter, a mom-mobile – as a tuning platform; when committed folk come together from all parts of the U.S. to show off their cars and/or pay respects to the model, making up the biggest meet of its kind without the help or official blessing from Honda, you know you’re experiencing something special.
We called out some of the finer Accord wagons and Odyssey minivans in a previous article from the show, and this photo gallery covers essentially the best of the rest. The biggest numbers seemed to be from the fourth, fifth and sixth gens of the car, with smatterings of the really old and really new. By and large the extent of many mods were just suspension and wheels, but the more serious modifiers swapped in H-series mills or even Honda V6 power. While we circulated the show, we ran into Honda community friendly faces like Big Mike and Daniel Hill from Werd Werx, who had on exhibit his CB7 EX that we featured previously.
In all, organizers claim over 200 vehicles were on display in the parking lot across the street from Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, Calif., and the weather was perfect for the brief Saturday get together.
