It's occurred to me that I have obviously been away from the Honda scene for far too long. Case in point: during the huge Honda meet at Eibach's main headquarters, I noticed the once-popular Asian fade has been replaced with some strange mutation of what I think is a fauxhawk (or another emo hairstyle of your choosing). And if your outfit doesn't cost as much to put together as your car (i.e.: $200 Nike Dunks, some sort of Crooks and Castles clothing and selvedge denim), you just don't belong. Even black eyeliner saves you in some instances. I somehow looked like a degenerate from the mid '90's, standing next to an old Persian dude (But I wore my mandals and Old Navy pocket-tee!- JN). Where did our sense of style go?
Despite our lack of fashion, it's clear to see the latest generation of Honda owners are doing everything right- strong attention to detail, old school wheels more perfect condition than when probably first bought, and engine builds done up every way possible in all letters of the alphabet (B, D, H and K). Our old age prevents us from keeping up with the usual suspects, but we did spot some of our favorites. Like AM Seven and Team Supastar, who surprised us with an H22-converted Odyssey mini-van. Eibach flexed its own tuning power, displaying a mid-engine Integra DC with a H22 engine. With every road leading into the facility and parking lots filled to the brim with SoCal Honda enthusiasts, the Eibach massive was once again a huge success.
