Eibach Meet Philadelphia 2018

The all-Honda affair lands in Philly

Between the mega-car show events that travel the country, the regional events, and not to be left out, the countless local meets that, whether reoccurring or spontaneous, typically attract a large and loyal following, the summer months are packed with car nerd activities. Some prefer fully coordinated events complete with big-dollar sponsors, while others are more apt to hit a meet for a little organized confusion in a free-for-all sort of environment.

The Eibach Meet has always hovered somewhere in the middle—organized and structured, yet offering a "come and go as you please" type of feel. Being forced to stay put for 8-plus hours isn't everyone's idea of a good time, and having the freedom to choose is one of the things that makes local meets so much more accessible. So you can imagine that when Eibach Meet announced a Philly stop for August 25th, the local Honda enthusiasts, along with surrounding regions, were understandably excited.

Hosted at Turn 14's warehouse parking lot, the Eibach Meet brought the same laid back, tightknit feel you would find at their massive SoCal event, and along with that comes incredibly well-built cars, some of which regularly keep a low profile but shook things up by making an appearance at the event.

Throughout the day, plenty of Type Rs and a healthy amount of genuine, tough-to-source Japanese goods could be found at every corner of Turn 14's property. The K-series movement was out in full force, but that doesn't mean the B-family was disregarded. A number of built and boosted, as well as naturally aspirated setups made sure the '90s hero wasn't forgotten.

We'll exploit Ray Delgado's AP2 any chance we get. One of our favorites, it was featured in SS last year and still looks immaculate. This time around his S2 is on TE37s rather than its previous Regamaster Evos, but his signature wheel color remains.

You might think the word "classic" is thrown around far too much in the Honda world, and I'd be inclined to agree, but when it comes to a white NSX on bronze Mugen MF10s, well ...

Positioned right next to Christian was this Acura DC2 fitted with just as many Mugen pieces and powered by its native B18.

William Wang made an appearance with his del Sol, which was featured on the cover of HT way back in 2013 and still draws a crowd.

We know, we know, you had that car in your Gran Turismo garage. We got it. This CTR is looking better than ever after a restoration and some choice additions from the Spoon Sports catalog.

Carlos Resto has been putting in some serious hours to finish up his boosted 5th-gen CX, featured in SS in 2014 After running into some engine issues he was able to make a comeback and the hatch looks better than ever.

Compared to last year's show, the 2018 Eibach Ohio Meet was a frigid slosh-fest. Yet despite the weather, Honda fans still managed to link up and celebrate what makes Honda so special.
