JCCS 2014 Part 3: Preludes, Civics and CRXs

Welcome to part 3 of the 2014 JCCS coverage! One car that seems to show up infrequently is the Prelude, but this year, we got a good sampling of the classic Prelude offerings. Starting with this convertible Prelude.

The convertibles are the best for viewing those minty vintage interiors.

Straight from the Honda Collection hall, was this 1st gen Prelude that looked like it rolled off the showroom floor.

And Chris Green’s latest Honda showed up to the show as well, winning the Japanese Nostalgic Car award. One look at this thing know, and you understand why!

Something you don’t see much are the 3g Civic sedans. And especially not often do they get the same treatment that we see on the hatchbacks. This one stood out with it’s clean DOHC swap.

A very well kept example of an all original base model CRX.

This CRX was looking purpose built for lightness tearing up the track.

This car was looking ready to tear up some canyon roads on it’s Volk wheels. It was cool to see them with and without the aero covers installed.

And for a little boulevard cruising, we would drive this drop-top all around California!

Multi-award-winner Chris Hoffman brought out his CRX that has been at the show every year since the show started 10 years ago.

This Civic, which you may have seen in Honda Tuning recently was killing it with it’s extremely clean engine bay and all around flawless, clean build. Nothing but engine in there!

Sadly there was an absence of 1st and 2nd gen Civics at this years show. We’re hoping to see some come out next year!

Check back with us for our last fantastic batch of classic Hondas to make JCCS 2014.

    Do you know anything more about the Prelude convertible? It could be a Silcco, National Coach or Global Coach conversion, done when new.

      Hi Slim, I did not get to talk to the owner at the show. But I will ask some sources and see if we can find out more!
