July 2014 Hole Shot - Inspiration

May 21, 2014 SHARE

If there was ever an issue of Super Street to inspire you, it's this one. The builders featured in between these pages have poured years of blood, sweat and tears into their project cars. From the EK built in the Northwest, to the brothers from SoCal, to our Bay Area cover car that took over a decade to finish... this issue is about more than the best Hondas in the scene. It's also about the amazing enthusiasts who helped each other out and are unbelievably dedicated to our passion and hobby.

Gettin' Bisi
A man who needs little introduction is Bisi Ezerioha. He's a living legend for creating some of the most powerful Hondas of all-time. Just to name a few, he's set drag racing records with his Insight, engineered a fully functional 500+hp CR-Z hybrid and took his 1000hp Civic Si 230mph down a half-mile airstrip. The Odyssey is his latest work of art and may just change the perception of mommy mobiles forever. Interestingly enough though, one of his inspirations behind the minivan was his '88 Civic Wagon—show stopping quality, plenty of storage room and comfortable enough to take a family on long road trips. It was also powered by a 724whp D-Series motor. The wagon was ahead of its time, but now with the Odyssey, it's safe to say Bisi is the king when it comes to building not only high horsepower Hondas but ultimate family haulers, too!

Keys to the Game
I wanted to take a moment and familiarize you with two contributors who have helped shape not only this Honda Issue but also countless other issues over the years.

Joey Lee - Simply put, Joey is the man. You can find him at almost every event and he knows virtually everybody in the scene—he's kind of a big deal! Flip over to the next page to read more about him and the cars he helped track down for this issue.

Aaron Bonk - A Honda guy by nature, Aaron first took an interest in making slow cars fast in the '90s when he realized his CRX was a turd. He's never owned a body kit, amp or anything chrome. While studying mechanical engineering, Aaron started up a shop specializing in swaps where he developed Honda-specific engine swaps—long before mount kits and aftermarket wiring harnesses were realities. He later transitioned into a career as a journalist authoring books and contributing regularly to almost every major sport compact publication. At Super Street, he's brought his technical expertise and excellent writing on a regular basis. Along with Joey and other contributors, Aaron's been a great member of our team and you can look forward to more from these great enthusiasts for years to come!
