Eibach Meet Midwest 2017

The Honda celebration spreads to Ohio

When Ryan Hoegner, Eibach's Business Develop Manager, decided to throw a Honda-only get-together at the Eibach facility in the heart of Corona, Calif. 13 years ago, he probably wasn't thinking about the monumental growth that would come after that first effort. And he certainly wasn't thinking about expansion, taking the event across the U.S. to Florida and Ohio, but that's exactly what's happened.

Having built on the success of the wildly popular Eibach Meet at home in Southern California, Hoegner set up shop in Orlando back in April, and on September 17th took a trip to the Honda Heritage Center in Marysville, with over 2,000 of his closest friends. That total, split by 325 display vehicles and over 1,700 visitors throughout the day, quickly proved the Eibach Meet as a brand has some legs.

In addition to the stellar turnout, a handful of vendors joined in on the first ever Midwest gathering, including Falken Tire, who continued their role as the event's title sponsor, and Downstar Inc, who've attended just about every iteration of the Eibach Meet.

The appreciation from the locals was apparent, and the need for an event in the region brought fans from all over the eastern seaboard, as well as Arizona and even California. The big question is, what's next for the Eibach Meet that seems to be approaching series status? The traditional May event is set in stone, but the staff has also hinted at something new for SoCal fans that will be happening as soon as January 2018. Keep tabs by following @eibachmeet on Instagram and Facebook.

Slick black TL Type S not only packing a boosted punch from its J-series heart, but also sporting a nicely constructed, custom intake manifold. Also, the Gram Lights 57C in Gun Blue II are a nice touch.

The look is no doubt familiar by now but no less effective; Voltex body armor and the wheel of the century, Volk's TE37, make for an aggressive, purpose-built appearance.
