Spring is finally here! Along with the clouds burning off, and the sun coming out, people are starting to bring their cars out. Winter projects are getting finished up, and people are out to drive and show off their cars. This weekend, there were a couple of Honda gatherings we’d like to share with you.
On Saturday the 20th was the 3geez.com meet and dyno day in the Seattle area. The meet was rather small with about 10 cars, but we had a fun group of people. 3geez is usually all about just the original 3 generations of Accords, but this year the invite was extended to other classic Hondas.
We love it when a bunch show up at the same time!
Shawn Seely’s clean, stock hatchback is seen here trying to blend in with some Corollas. Quite the resemblance!
A couple of clean EF Civics showed up too! The wagon put down almost 100hp on the dyno! Not bad for a dual port D-series!
The moment everybody was waiting for. Josh Rendon’s 86 Sedan with an LS/VTEC swap on the dyno. He put down an impressive 198hp all motor!
Here it is, making some noise on the dyno!
Brodie Conway’s A20A3 was cleaned up and all decked out!
An all around favorite, this 1g Civic wagon built by Justin March was packing a turbocharged B16!
Just look at that engine bay!
Here he is putting down the power on the dyno!
Who doesn’t love a wagon with it’s appropriate accessories?
Josh Babb was keeping it old school on the dyno with his Accord DX hatch, with a Weber carb swap.
Later in the night, after some awesome karting, those of us who were able to stick around decided a quick photoshoot would be appropriate. Not sure how that Golf got in there….
The next day at Pacific Raceways, Honda Tech had organized a huge meet! The lot was completely packed, and people were having a blast drag racing their cars. Most of the cars at the meet were relatively new, but there were some stand-out old-school cars that had shown up as well, and I thought they deserved some attention.
Of course, there were a few of us who showed up from the 3geez meet the day before. Like Josh here, showing off his LS-VTEC swap.
Justin’s wagon here again is always a show favorite.
A 2nd gen Prelude Si showed up, slammed on steelies.
And an example of a 3rd gen 4wd Civic wagon was here too. You don’t see these nearly as often as the EF wagons.
This 2nd gen Civic hatch was on display. Lowered just a bit, with color-matched steelies and trim rings.
This old school 1g Legend was here. Showing off Honda’s first line of Luxury cars, demonstrating fine execution of boxy 80’s Honda style.
Tucked away near the trees was this 1g CRX Si.
On the strip found Brodie Conway again, showing this Integra how old school does it.
And this clean 1g CRX giving this RX8 a good scare. Way to go!
