In between the cars and coffee gatherings and impromptu word of mouth meets that take place just about every weekend, we’re finally starting to see some signs of life from paid events like the Honda Super Meet.
A product of Import Expo, the all-Honda/Acura affair brought a trio of events to the world famous Irwindale Speedway and included a car show, car meet, and drag race competition. The heavy Honda presence throughout SoCal has been itching for something to take part as some of the region’s staple events have pulled back in light of the pandemic. Unlike your local get-together, in order to be granted entrance your vehicle has to be accepted by the organizers who reserve the right to refuse cars. This in an effort to maintain a certain level of quality associated with their event.
Like most Honda-specific events, the 5th- and 6th-generation Civic model, 3rd-generation Integra, and S2000 were by far the most popular models in attendance. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t a healthy amount of older Hondas and modern-day builds, but they were heavily outnumbered by undoubtedly the most popular series of chassis in the Honda line up.
If there was an award for longest ownership, Mike G would certainly be in the running. His Urban Green Civic EH build is closing in on two decades, still sporting its original MOB Works paint job. Minor changes here and there have maintained the car’s relevance within an inherently fickle sector of the import community.
Other than the switch to Mugen MF10 wheels, this K24/20 ITB Civic EJ looks exactly the way it did when we featured it last year.
The 2nd-generation Integra seems to be getting a second life of sorts as its popularity is on the rise. When introduced, it became a smash hit among enthusiasts, though its following dwindled upon the release of its younger sibling and accompanying Civic models that pulled attention away.
30 years later, the DA/DB2, like other ’90s Hondas, is experiencing a renaissance and we even attended a DA/DB2-specific meet recently.
In a virtual sea of Civics and Integras, this TSX stands out. Taking an OEM-plus approach to the exterior, owner Angel Pena focused on adding a long list of power and performance engine and suspension upgrades. He also did his best to stay on the right side of the law with C.A.R.B. exempt additions, like the Comptech supercharger that helps the internally stock 2.4-liter reach over 350 hp. You can get the entire story on this clean sedan right here.
Very aggressive Advan GTs squeeze in just under the fender extensions both front and rear, while under the hood you’ll find a turbo kit fed by the front mount intercooler.
