When you make your way to Lake Elsinore's Storm Stadium for the annual Eibach Honda Meet each year, there are a few things you expect to see - namely Civics, Integras, plenty of right-hand drive vehicles, some spotless, well-sorted engine bays, and more K-powered cars than you can possibly imagine. What you don't expect, however, are two rows of top notch NSX builds lined up perfectly for your viewing pleasure.
An NSX sighting isn't all that common of an occurrence, even for those living in forgiving climates. Closing in on three decades since its inception, the mid-engine, rear-wheel drive Honda flagship has gone from surprise hit to collectable, to virtual legend, drawing even more attention today as fans eagle-eye the long-delayed launch of Honda's second iteration of the iconic sports car. To see 40-plus in person at an event typically reserved for some of Honda/Acura's more easily accessible models is an event in and of itself.
As Eibach Meet celebrated its 12th year of Honda community enthusiasm, over 40 NSXs made their way into the massive stadium parking area to fill their reserved section. The organizers set out to add the attraction to the 900-plus registered vehicle lineup and were able to confirm the group on just one-day notice thanks to the assistance of fellow NSX fanatic, Leon Casino. Here's a look at the awesome spectacle.
Early in the morning of May 15th, the NSX group began rolling in and quickly lining up prior to the massive flow of registered Hondas that were set to make their way through the gates.
Though his personal NSX was in the Falken booth during the event, Leon Casino was responsible for rallying the troops and organized the NSX group's attendance.

In the AutoFashion booth sat this highly modified Rocket Bunny-equipped NSX. So involved is the installation process that AutoFashion tells us a good chunk of the rear end has to be cut out prior to adding the aero pieces.
Your NSX not light enough? Maybe carbon fiber is the answer.
Michael Mao's NSX might be the most famous on planet earth currently. He's made multiple changes to his twin-turbo, widebody build over the past few years - some of which landed him on the cover of Super Street.
