@THE GRINCH Where's the dislike button when you need one?
This gotta be the best car show for lovers of late 80s & early 90s machines.
Not for me they ain't...80s are old sure maybe whatever, but 90s and up are all new to me.

Yeah, but it's still a Mustang, and just like there are people that look down on Civics, there are as many if not more people that put down Mustangs or anything American for that matter. Nothing against pony cars, but you're comparing grapefruits to oranges.

What's a WRX? A Corolla with boxer engine and a fancy AWD system? An RSX is a technological wonder compared to a WRX.

Prelude Type SH or not, all Hondas made between the year 1990 and 2000 had unequal length double-wishbone suspension design at all four corners (at least those that were sold in US).
I thought phones were illegal to use when driving...

1. Define serious.
2. It has RWB touches and that's what being discussed IMHO
3. What about Idlers events?

@ryukyustriker @apex_DNA I've heard all about it, my buddy has moved to Japan last August and has yet to buy a car. On the contrary, with weaker yen Japanese car parts have become affordable again, for those of us with stronger currencies that is.
@EhruMejil Get yourself a Ford then.
@ryukyustriker Civic is not sold in Japan anymore, but they will probably import the Type R model like they did with previous generation and called it Civic Type R Euro. We'll see.
@aw318i If they will sell them in Japan.
@AdamBezzegh But it's a Ford.
@cgpexcoupe @Gianluca FairladyZ Spaceship-design = Future?
How do you explain the FR-S then? Why can't Honda release a similar-sized, low roof, low and longer hoodline FWD car and call it an Integra?
@Emptypie @6A13TTFelipe And why is that?
@CharlesSangollo There is no JDM one.
@DanielOliva No reason to go with AWD if it's Honda, but for any other car manufacturer who attempted to make a proper FWD and failed? Sure, by all means.
@AdamBezzegh How's Evo 9 not a "factory-made boyracer-looking thing"?
@RSAnthony EK is just a facelift, albeit a major one, of the EG.
@ThelamusCeasar More like 2 decades late. First Civic Type R came out in 1997.
@Nicholas J OGara " It moves effortlessly, it looks like a rwd track car...not a Honda."
That's because it IS a Honda, and it moves accordingly.
@wujaszyna I knew that was gonna happen.
Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension? WTF is that? Honda's version of Toyota's Super Strut? Why can't Honda go back to double-wishbones all around, lightweight chassis, low hood lines, the works.
@EvolveWRC Always liked RSi's. Thanks for bringing it up. Gran Turismo 3 A-spec anyone?
@eddie I'd love to see more of his OG drift builds.

In regards to your deleted comment...
"F1 & FIA clamor about F1 being a lab for road cars. How is that possible with so many restrictions."
Honda's VTEC & PGM-FI systems, double-wishbone suspension, etc. down to the valve cover design of their '80/90s cars was a direct result of their experience in F1. And if you're talking about F1 today, well nothing is like how it was, from cars to music to the government, everything changed after the year 2001, we became "safer" and our lives became more boring as a result. This is solely my opinion of course.

@CaliZephyr70 @RaceSonoma @Speedhunters Same here.
@JustinOdijk And rightfully so.
2 months, 1 week ago on Is This The Future Of F1?
Nothing is on track as far as F1 is concerned, the only thing that will keep me interested this season is Honda working with McLaren again.
@Mike Garrett @apex_DNA Will we see any coverage of the event on SH?

"In my humble 1980's biased perspective Mercedes hasn't produced a car since, with squared off edgy body lines and a racing heritage, that impresses me the way the 190E 16V does. Even when I see other Mercedes on the freeway, costing ten timed more than mine, I feel no envy."
The same could be said about late '80s, early '90s Hondas (depending on the model). I'm also sure other car manufacturers like Nissan of the same vintage would fall in to that category as well.

"It is the opposite of consumer culture. Rather than throwing something
away, these artisans are customizing and reinventing. What if we all
kept our current cars for the next 30 years and each continued to
rebuild and reinvent them every few years?"
It's what I'm trying to achieve, 9 years under the belt so far, and 21 to go.
Very well-written article by the way. Thanks Speedhunters.
