Once a year droves upon droves of loyal subjects of the “Honda-head” kingdom go on a great pilgrimage to a mythical land known as the “Inland Empire”.  Once they reach this place they gather together to enjoy each others company, buy and trade their wares, and tell tales of triumph over unsuspecting V8’s at traffic lights….  Seriously though the annual “Eibach” meet is one of the biggest gatherings of Hondas in the country and every year it seems to gain momentum.  In fact this year marked the event’s 10th anniversary.  The legend says that at the first meet or what I like to call “Eibach prime” there was only 50 cars.  This year there was easily a few hundred cars!  In fact, in recent years the meet has gotten so large in size that it can no longer be held at Eibach’s massive HQ because they just don’t have the space.  Eibach has instead chosen a spot in Lake Elsinore (at the home of their local minor league baseball team) to hold their epic gathering.  Despite being even further away from major cities than Eibach’s HQ, even more Honda fans showed up than before!  I too made the epic trek to the Lake of Elsinore to behold all of the Hondas for myself as well as snap plenty of pictures for your enjoyment.  Even though it was hotter than a volcano’s butt hole and dusty as all get out, once I saw the rows and rows of clean, excellently executed Hondas it was all worth it.  If you want to see what I saw then check out the gallery below!  Also stay tuned for our coverage from Toyotafest 2014 as well!

Hype Event: Eibach Meet 2013 (Gallery)

Posted on 05.19.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Wow, it seems like just yesterday that I made the trip out to Lake Elsinore to visit a fleet of fresh Hondas at the 2013 Eibach meet.  Wait, actually it wasn’t yesterday it was just a few hours ago…  Yes, that fast and I already have my pictures up.  Why?  Because its Sunday afternoon and I am a very boring individual.  Actually, its partly because my gallery is somewhat modest (150 pictures) compared to what I know will be galleries of thousands of shots from other outlets.

 

As far as my impressions of the meet?  Well I should start off with a disclaimer that the last time I went to the Eibach meet, it was actually at Eibach’s facility.  For a while now the meet has gotten so big that organizers have been forced to find larger venues.  This year they visited the Storm Stadium in Lake Elsinore.  While the location was scenic, it was also incredibly hot!  As well as at least an hour away from most of the people who would visit.  I’d love it if they moved it to some where closer and cooler (temp. wise) but part of the fun is the exodus to get out there right?

 

The quality of cars was not quite the way I remember it but, well trends are different now and with the economy the way it is there aren’t many who have the money or patience to pay a premium and wait 3 months for those JDM parts.  I commend those who still do that despite the economic climate but it seems like the Honda scene is now more about creative without breaking the bank and that in and of itself makes for some pretty fresh rides.

I wasn’t able to capture everything but I figured I would just give you a taste of what was there.  Click on the thumbnails for teaser shots then hit the red text for our Facebook gallery. If you want more just stay tuned to your usual internet haunts and I’m sure many more galleries will pop up.  For now, enjoy!

Hype Video: Skunk2 15-Minute K Cam Swap Teaser

Posted on 07.28.09 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Skunk2 wants to know how long it takes you to swap cams in a K series Honda/Acura motor?  They dropped a teaser vid of how quickly they can pull it off.  Although I have to say, using fast motion is kind of cheating isn’t it?
