Hondas of Wekfest Seattle 2017

The unstoppable force makes its way to the Pacific Northwest

The Wekfest Tour, already a well-established staple in the import car community, recently decided to spread their wings and take on some new real estate, this time in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle and its surrounding cities are no strangers to car shows and large-scale gatherings, and in fact years ago a saturation of events took place; since then, there haven't been nearly as many shows passing through. That all changed on July 9th, at the Century Field Event Center.

Regardless of the number of events that have decided to avoid the Pacific Northwest, there's never been a shortage of hardcore enthusiasts, especially when it comes to Honda builders. High-level projects are heavy in this region and you've probably seen a number of them in the pages of Super Street, but there are plenty more that were just waiting to get cleaned up for an event like Wekfest. The number of Hondas in attendance was staggering, but that came as no surprise to locals in the know.

As you might expect, 5th and 6th gen. Civics and 3rd gen. Integras were plentiful, but one of the unique things about the PNW is the number of slightly newer chassis that have been built up, like EP3s and RSXs, along with a strong showing of Honda's flagship, the original NSX.

The Wekfest tour continues with a stop in New Jersey on August 20th. Visit wekfest-usa.com for more info.

Back in 2010, Terry's 2001 GS-R was featured in Honda Tuning Magazine, but it was around well before that issue. And as of Wekfest Seattle, it's still around, looking better than ever with a few changes like the custom finish CE28 and coil-on-plug conversion.

The night before Eibach Meet West, Heeltoe Automotive owner Marcus Di Sabella said he would make the mad dash to finish up his classic turbocharged, RHD 1st gen CRX for Wekfest, and he certainly delivered on that promise.

If a J32 sticking out of the bay of a Civic hatchback doesn't catch some attention, then the polished supercharger tacked on to the side of said V6 certainly will.

You know it's serious when Huy (aka Wiiizzer) brings out his turbo, 2.2L K20 RSX that landed on the cover of Super Street in 2015.

Mel Diego's '03 Si was featured in HT in 2011 and hasn't aged a bit. A new set of MF10s look right at home with the rest of the authentic Mugen goods. Mel's other Honda is something a little newer, a 9th-gen. coupe on Volk ZE40s.

Bill's boosted blue EP3, featured in HT back in 2013 not only makes solid power, it also won the Honda of the Festival award at Wekfest. When Bill's not blowing-off on potential victims he's cruising this TL SH on 20-inch TE37s and fitted with OEM optional aero.

You don't see a ton of del Sol builds around and even fewer CRVs, but Austin chose to heavily modify both, and we're glad he did. His RHD-converted del Sol features a supercharged K-swap while the CRV relies on a 2.0L ITR block, built and boosted.

We're suckers for DB2 Integras and Jeremiah's Mugen-clad version is one of the cleanest we've seen.
