In case anyone out there was thinking that the Honda tuning community isn't what it used to be, one pass through the recent Eibach Meet held at Lake Elsinore, California's Diamond Stadium would no doubt put all that smack talk to rest. There are still untold numbers of Honda enthusiasts out there pouring their blood, sweat, and tears into their rides, and they were out in force at the Eibach Meet.

Usually held at the Eibach headquarters, Diamond Stadium instead seemed like a more proper venue for what's considered the original and biggest all-Honda meet in the U.S. Roughly 700 cars were showcased in all and literally thousands of spectators flocked to the small lakeside town. This wouldn't be possible without the efforts of Honda Tuning editor Matt Rodriguez and Ryan Hoegner, who were the pioneers of the now legendary meet.

HASport did an amazing job hosting an engine and transmission swap demo during the event. Of course Integras and Civics easily outnumbered the other Honda models, but that didn't stop a handful of Preludes, S2000s, and NSXs from coming out. The Toyo Tires booth had an elite lineup of cars which included Michael Mao's NSX, John Marinas' NSX, Luigi Arroyo's J's Racing inspired S2000, and Ben's Top Secret S2000.

Honda enthusiasts may have the biggest egos in the industry, but when it boils down to it many of them have become masters at their craft. While there was some groaning about the venue, high entrance fees, and the parking situation, I guarantee thousands will come again next year. And even the Honda haters out there would no doubt appreciate the engineering and heritage of it all if they came out to see it next year.

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.
