9th Annual PA ITR Meet

The thin line between car friends and car fiends.

When most think about car meets, they immediately conjure up zombie-like car fiends dragging around a parking lot looking at strangers cars, and rarely actually engaging in conversation. For Integra Type R owners attending the PA ITR meet, it was the complete opposite, as this get-together had almost nothing to do with cars, and everything to do with the people.

Last year marked the ninth PA ITR meet to take place and as in years past, Innovative MotorWorks, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, graciously hosted the first half of the meet. This portion was comprised of the usual meet activities, but cars were not wiped down, and only a few hoods were even popped. The dyno was open for owners to test the power output of their ITRs, with a few people taking advantage of the offer, as most had already done it in years past. With the announcement that this could be the last PA ITR Meet, many came out of the woodwork providing an excellent turnout with previous owners and friends showing up from all over, including the Carolinas, Texas, Illinois, and Massachusetts, among others.

After a few hours of catching up, it was time for IMW to close the shop for the day and for the Meet to move forward to the portion that everyone looks forward to the most: a cruise through the back roads of Pennsylvania from Carlisle to Gettysburg where Jon D. graciously opened the doors to his house for the meet attendees. An instant feeling of relaxation swept over everyone as they kicked back with beers in hand and chowed down on barbecue. For most ITR meet goers, this is the real meet—a laid-back party to catch up with friends both old and new, cars are optional.

Compared to last year's show, the 2018 Eibach Ohio Meet was a frigid slosh-fest. Yet despite the weather, Honda fans still managed to link up and celebrate what makes Honda so special.
