Eibach Honda Meet 2016 | Storm Stadium
Had a pleasure attending the annual Eibach Honda meet held at Storm Stadium in Lake Elsinore last Sunday. This iconic event brings some of the best Honda builds from the west coast and most hardcore enthusiasts from all over the world. Check out some of our photos from of one the best events here in California.
The Loi-Spec Garage track-driven Integra Type-R’s on display in front of the ICB Motorsport / Mackin booth.
A Milano red ITR that the Loi-Spec guys just finished building from the ground up with lots of brand new parts straight from the Honda dealership and many other authentic goodies made in Japan imported over by ICB Motorsport.
Must be nice to have a Hyper Blue TE37 wheel as a spare.
One of our favorite S2000 builds from the day. All the way from Arizona, Tho brought his car to the Eibach meet to show off his ASM-themed build. Super clean and on 17×9 +22 Volk Racing CE28 wheels.
A pair of beautiful EG6 Civic’s fitted with lots all authentic and rare parts from Japan.
A beautiful Spoon Sports-themed S2000 in front of the Go Tuning booth.
The Chronicle’s booth strong as always with several timeless builds.
A closer look at the Spoon Sports open-air concept S2000. We got a chance to see this last year at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 at the Makuhari Messe when we toured along with the ICB Motorsport guys. When we first saw it Japan, we didn’t catch that it was a glass top that you could see through, which is pretty neat.
The Spoon Sports fleet. That FD2 Civic is always awesome to see. Good friend and professional driver Dai Yoshihara broke the FWD record at Buttonwillow during Super Lap Battle with a blistering time of 1:45.585 while missing 4th gear.
Hondata wowed the crowd when then unveiled the Euro Civic Type-R at the show. Really cool to see in person especially since we’ve been watching these Civics dominate WTCC this season. At the last round in Morocco, Honda swept the podium with a 1-2-3 finish. There are rumors saying we may have it here in the US by 2018, so let’s keep our fingers crossed!
Behind the scenes of the Super Street Magazine guys always working.
Can’t go to the Eibach Honda meet without stopping by the Eibach booth! This classic Honda N600 broke my neck and drew me right towards it when I saw the Honda gas tank cover inside the engine bay. Man, I’d totally dip in one of these on the daily. The N600 was the first Honda car to be officially imported to the United States and was sold through the Honda Motorcycle network since that had already been established. This rad build looks like it was fitted with a 98 Honda Interceptor (VFR800) motor that screams up to 12,000 RPM and we think it’s for sale.
One of the many visitors who came to all the way from Japan for this show was Yasu from Exceed Japan. I met him last year in Osaka when we were hanging out with a bunch of other friends from LA who were in town for TAS2015 and he was a super cool guy. He even drove me all the way back to my AirBnB after dropping off the other guys off at their hotel that night, which was very courteous. Nice seeing you, Yasu!
A couple of race vehicles from Drow Sports out of Signal Hill on display at the Eibach booth.
Another timeless build right here from Nemos Garage. Quality and authentic parts never go out of style.
We got there late and ended up chatting and catching up with a lot of people, so we didn’t get to walk the show much outside of the vendor area. It was a huge turn out and another great event by the organizers who worked hard on making this event happen again.
The day after Eibach, we got invited to the secret Honda Museum in Torrance and was able to get an awesome tour of the facility. Not as impressive as the Honda museum at the Twin Ring Motegi that we visited last year, but still really rad. Look forward to those photos coming up real soon.
