It has been a bit quit here lately, but I’m back from my vacation to Hungary! Like every year I make photos of all interesting (Japanese) cars I see and like every year I also visited my parents in law. Opposite of their apartment someone owns the illest Honda Civic EF that I covered two years ago and this year there was some progress on the Civic:
Sorry for the grainy photos, but when we visited them it was already past 9 in the evening which means in an Hungarian summer it will be dark. So I had to keep my hand steady and shoot the photos because this was the only time I could take them and there was no other chance…
Anyway, the Honda Civic EF has been fitted with some really fancy rims that look like Enkei mesh rims: Continue reading
It is time again to share some more great finds from Hungary!
This Honda Civic EF was parked opposite of my parent in law’s house so maybe it is owned by the same person who parked a Prelude on the same spot four years ago.
This Civic was done in a very nice way. Not too much hellaflush and no stickerbombs: Continue reading
I’ll continue where I left off: right at this Honda Civic.
For some unknown reason the whole meeting was overcrowded by Civics and for another unknown reason the roads around the meetup were clogged up with high revving VTECs. Once is funny, a couple of time is nice, but after several hours it just gets plain annoying.
Anyway, let’s talk a bit about this Civic: I think the IKEA background suits this Civic. This Civic does not seem to have a clear theme and is a bit of various popular parts together. Take a bra / nose protector, ground scrapingly low coilover set, wide steelies and you are done with it.
Of course that summary is very harsh and I actually did like the car as a whole and took several more pictures of it… Continue reading
I watched this JDM advertisement for the Honda Civic 35XT and it kind of puzzles me what the 35XT stands for…
It just looks like a regular ED sedan, but then with the dual carbed hyper 16valve D15B2 engine in it…
Last Friday I was commuting by car to my work and just got around the block of my house, spotted something in the left corner of my eye and slammed on the brakes real hard. Why? Well this is why:
Yes, my eyes did not deceive me for a split second: I slammed my brakes for a set of Hayashi Street
knock offs (They are genuine!) on this Honda Civic EG. 🙂
Still these Rota Shakotan (that’s what they are called) still look good on this Civic. 😉
Edit: they are genuine!
BTW: Don’t mind the bad quality of the picture: after the only parking spot that was left the day before was under a tree I found my car covered in bird-crap and I tried to make my side windows at least a bit more visible, hence all the fuzzy stuff in the picture. 😮
There are lovers and haters of the stickerbomb style and I happen to be somewhere in between. If applied in a good fashion I like it a lot, if done in a wrong way I definitely hate it. Given this phenomenon popped up one and a half to two years ago I think we’re currently at the high of the trend, so there is hope for the haters. 😉
Anyway, here is a selection of cars I found on the Japanese Autosport Festival with stickerbombs!
First of all the Miata of which I posted up a bombed flip up light before. All round this car was applied with various stickers, but the bombs were concentrated around the flip up lights. I love it this way: it is easily reversible and not overdone.
Speaking of flip up lights, this is a closeup of the other light: Continue reading
