2018 SoCal Eibach Meet Pt. II

More pics from the biggest Honda meet on the map

May 15, 2018
Photographer: Luke Munnell

In part I of our SoCal Eibach Meet coverage you saw the early morning set up, and in part II the coverage is from later in the day. By this time, the sun was overhead and the temperatures were well above comfortable. Nevertheless, the drag racing continued and the neverending spectator line didn't slow down until late in the afternoon, toward the tail end of the event.

Even if you weren't a fan of drag racing, it made for an incredible backdrop. Not far from vendor row, the burnouts and fierce launches overpowered the D.J. and everyone took notice. Combine that with over 40 vendors that featured all types of performance and aesthetic parts for every Honda imaginable as well as apparel and accessories, multiple food trucks and a huge raffle, and there was plenty to take in. Also, a few lighthearted awards were handed out and included the Road Warrior trophy, awarded to Keith Thrasher who drove all the way out from Florida! Not far behind him, however, was Javier Ortega/OGS 1320, creator of the massive HDay event on the East coast, who made the drive from New Jersey in just 48 hours in a 4th-gen., 4wd, JDM Civic sedan.

With that said, here's more coverage from the 2018 SoCal Eibach Meet...

Clocked forward with lean mounts and fitted with an ITB and carbon fiber intake setup, this Civic could sneak into a car show though it's built for battle.

The number of late-model Hondas continues to increase at each and every Eibach Meet. This eighth-gen. FA5 falls within "late-model Honda" territory and features an FD2 Type R conversion. It sits in a precarious spot as the following generation Civic's K-series engines doesn't have the same amount of tuning flexibility and after that, other than the Type R, the celebrated engine family is non-existent.

But even with the additional eighth-, ninth- and tenth-generation Civics on hand, the early '90s builds continue to pour in as well. This Jasper Green Integra DA and ED chassis Civic with EF9 front-end conversion both serve as perfect examples.
