Hondas are rampant in this scene, they’re a dime a dozen. But let’s not deny the truth, many if not all of us got into the scene and lifestyle because at one point or another in our lives we saw a bad ass modified Honda. From that first sighting we fell in love with the scene and yearned for more. Hell many of us in the scene have at least had one Honda! I guess it’s safe to say that Hondas are kind of like a gateway drug into the tuning scene. Let’s face it, there are many parts available, swaps can easily be accomplished, a lot of shops that specialize in them, buying one is not as hard as buying oh say a used Evo or STI. I can recall a time when you picked up a tuning magazine on the cover was a Honda, many of the articles and pictures were Hondas.

But to all these positives there were also negatives. Prime example of this is the fact that you can probably pick up a decently used Honda Civic hatch for around 1500-2000, so this makes it accessible virtually to anyone; and the possibilities of tuning it are only limited to anImage individual’s budget and imagination. Second downside to it, since basically most Honda parts are universal easily

swapped, if you have enough done your car is prone to being stolen. Finally, since Hondas are easily attainable they’ve become a symbol of the ricer; many of them get built for the sake of being accepted or a sign or status of being in the scene. Unfortunately those are the types we often encounter.

Like all things there is always an exemption.

These two prime examples of a Honda done right! Built out of passion and made to serve a purpose!

Mikey B and Dennis have built themselves fun little toys, while proving that not all Honda owners are doomed to be marked as a ricer.

Mikey and Dennis’ EFs has a wide array parts of the beckons to be respected. No cut corners. I can tell these cars were built for a purpose and to suit their individualities. Now they may not be the prettiest to some people’s standards, but to me they are beautifully and eclectically done. I can rant on and on about these two track made cars but I’m not trying to write a book ; I’ll let the mod list and pictures do the talking.





Both Mikey and Dennis have run Gingerman for the WMHM last year, with even bigger plans to run more tracks this year. Again proving that not all Honda owners are stuck in the days of the FAST AND FURIOUS. Well done chaps well done!

The FB one is a little rough around the edges. Not bad for a track toy though. I've always had a sweet spot for EF hatches.

The writer of the article needs some literary upgrade.
