Hondas of Import Alliance Spring Meet '17

The Honda movement in the South is stronger than ever

For a ninth year in a row, the Import Alliance (IA) crew pulled off yet another massive gathering at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Under their Spring Meet banner, the event had some rather large shoes to fill - namely 2016's successful showing, which ushered in over 10,000 cars. And while we don't have an official car count, it seems as if they met their mark and surpassed it.

After 12 years of conducting events, IA has developed a loyal following unlike any other, and each time a meet takes place it tends to bring in enthusiasts from all over the map. That collection of participants, Honda and non-Honda, includes die-hard, long-term fans that never miss an IA event, as well as newcomers making their way for the first time.

The Honda crowd in the south consists of all types of builds. Some lean more toward the show side, others toward the track end of the spectrum, and then there are those that do it all. Import Alliance provides the venue and the date, and Honda owners continually come out in droves, outnumbering every other make. From mild to wild and everything in between, the Honda/Acura badge can be seen everywhere.

Bryson Richards brought his turbocharged, Rocket Bunny Civic EH track car to IA with its Senna-inspired graphics and some recently added changes under the hood. Here's a look back at his HT Digital feature.

About as simple as it gets on the outside, with a gorgeous bay and K-power perched in the bay.

Collector of all things JDM, John Perez displayed his '89 LX sedan, which now sports B-series power rather than the D16 he used during his feature.

If the fact it's a Civic Type R didn't get you, then the K-swap, CE28 rollers and First Molding flugel plate lip will certainly garner a double take.

This fifth-gen. Si duo could serve as a template for what many Civic fans aspire to. The formula isn't foreign and consists of a K-swap, Volk or Spoon wheels, First Molding or Spoon lip ,and a straight, well-maintained body. Simple, effective and timeless.

When Midori Green was first introduced on the sixth-gen. Civic, it was hated by many and loved by few. These days it's the exact opposite, and builds like this K-powered version could very well be the reason why.

Plagued with issues before heading out to IA, this supercharged S2K was quickly fixed and back on the road in no time, thanks to the help of a few friends. The Voltex aero and CE28s are the perfect combo.

How many turbo, K-series Odyssey minivans with hood exit exhaust systems have you seen lately? Not many, we would imagine.
