Honda enthusiasts can be somewhat of a strange breed. Many of them realize that there are quite a few stereotypes and negative connotations that come with owning a Honda. They can be subjected to little to no respect by local authorities, and non-enthusiasts are convinced that all Honda owners are accident-prone and out to street race. However, at the Eibach Meet shows, an innumerable amount of die-hard enthusiasts are still out there building flawless cars. Many people say the tuner world is dead; Honda tuners beg to differ.
What started as a meet at the Eibach facility in Corona, CA, has grown to be what some people consider a full-on car show-so much so that the event had to be relocated for the past two years. The Diamond Stadium in Lake Elsinore was the choice for this year's festivities and many would agree it was a proper venue. Of course, there are going to be some who seem to hate any sort of change, whether it's the venue, entrance fees, or parking areas. That didn't stop thousands of Honda aficionados from flocking to the small lakeside town. This wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of Honda Tuning Editor Matt Rodriguez and Ryan Hoegner, who were the pioneers of the renowned event.
For years the Eibach Meet has been showcasing the true spirit of both USDM and JDM trends. It continues to be a tribute to the engineering prowess that is Honda.
