Event: Eibach Open House 2011 v.2

.

OK, on to round two of the Eibach Open House coverage.  Hope you’re liking the content so far – the sites traffic always shoots up dramatically when I post event photos.  Now that I’ve browsed through the shots I took and can truly say I am floored by some of these builds; like Mike G’s internet famous EG.  I’ve known Mike for a few years now on theJDM and NWP but he always seemed to elude me at shows.  I’m glad I finally got to meet up with him.  Cars aside, these shows are a great chance to meet the people behind the scenes; those who constantly push the industry to new heights.  There has been a ton of coverage popping up on forums now that it’s been a few days, and I thank you guys for visiting NDF.  Check out The Chronicles for Joe’s coverage of the show from his point of view.  He’s got a great knack for free writing, and his posts are always interesting.  Enjoy the second gallery past the break!

Event: Eibach Open House 2011 v.1

.

For 7 years now Eibach Springs, with the help of some dedicated people, have been hosting the largest Honda/Acura meet in the country at the company headquarters in Corona, CA.  Each year I attend, and each year I am blown away at the quality of some of the builds, as well as the sheer amount of people in attendance.  Despite the rain in the morning, thousands of Hondas stormed the gate and filled the side streets even before the show officially began.  If you’ve been before though, it’s to be expected.  I tried to get the best coverage possible, but with this many cars it’s pretty tough.  Click past the break to enjoy the new gallery feature of NDF.

Event: 6th Annual JCCS, Long Beach V.2

.

On to round 2 of the JCCS coverage.  Like I mentioned in the previous post, engine swaps are all to common at this show;  and this coupe is no exception.  This is Steve’s car.  Steve drove 2,000 miles from Alberta, Canada to show at Long Beach.  This is the way I like to see cars; put to use!  As if that wasn’t special enough, Steve had something out of the ordinary at the disposal of his right foot.  How does 260 ft/lb.’s of torque sound?  Yup, a 4.0 liter, V8 taken from a LS400 sits in place of the stock engine.  I got to talk to Steve for a little bit, and to my surprise, he said that the first generation UZ engine fit rather easily in the bay.
