Honda enthusiasts always seem to have an easily updated virtual list of cars for their ideal garage tucked neatly away in the back of their head. Ask to unleash the particulars, and you're often met with the almost requisite assorted Type Rs and the flagship NSX, both of which are detailed right down to the exhaust they'd chose and the steering wheel they'd swap in place of the stocker. For guys like Tyson Hugie, however, the ideal garage isn't a fantasy, it's reality, and the long list of mods that you might expect aren't at all missed.
While he didn't set out to be a collector of Acura, he'd be hard pressed to put up a fight to dispute that. As of the video in this article (shot in 2019), he had eight vehicles mostly from the '90s in his fleet. And though that's changed slightly since last year, his collection is well worth a closer look, and includes the coveted 1st-gen. NSX, a DB2 GS-R, seldom-seen Vigor, and a Legend with over half a million miles! As you'll see in the video, they don't sit idle very long, as Tyson stacks miles regularly on all of them and, yes, that includes the NSX.
Former Honda Brand Culture Champion turned independent Honda brand advocate, Charles Schnieber of Kokoro Honda, is a walking encyclopedia of Honda and Acura brand knowledge with facts and figures that date back to the very genesis of Honda's humble beginnings in Japan, and he was the Launch Manager for the Civic Type R. Charles leads the tour while riding shotgun in some of Tyson's collection as they talk about the details of these Acura classics. Charles also notes that there are more Kokoro Honda videos in the works!
