The Hondas of AutoCon LA 2016

Los Angeles Convention Center - April 23rd, 2016

With car show season underway and a rather reasonable start time of 1pm, we made our way through the always crowded LA streets to check out the AutoCon event at LA Convention Center.

As with most car shows and meets in So Cal, you're guaranteed to find at least a handful of Honda builds on hand - some street, some show and, in the case of AutoCon, even a few track cars. With plenty of high-end vehicles in attendance, (GTRs, Porsches, exotics), we expected to find just a few NSX and S2000s scattered throughout the venue, but actually, we ran across a group of Civics, CRXs and even a boosted Prelude on hand as well.

As with most car-related events currently, widebody treatments and universal fender flares tacked on to just about everything from Lambos to Nissan Jukes were plentiful. In between all of the man-made fiberglass girth sat a few interesting builds that we took a closer look at.

We don't see many Preludes at car shows, especially ones built to race and using turbo motivation to scoot around the track
