Everything’s Lower in Texas

If you’re not from Houston, you may wonder why every other tuner car is so low here. “Most” of Houston is low car friendly, typically in the suburbs and the freeways are usually the flattest compared to other states. But it also helps that every other car is also bagged here. I’ve always found it funny that everyone claims that their city has the worst streets for dumped cars. I can honestly say Houston for the most part has very driveable streets, and starting next week- the fastest as well.

Static?

Definitely bagged.

The reverse rake on this one seems odd.

Once you go black?

We got a chance to catch up with Andre Mikhaylov, an old school ricer that lives in Houston. Believe it or not, his Berlina Black NA1 NSX is also his daily. It being NSX #2 for Andre, he knows exactly what he wanted this time around, and it’s really great to see such a nice and unusual car being put through it’s daily paces. I asked him why he chose to daily an NSX to which he replied, “It’s a Honda”. Point taken.

They don't make profiles like this anymore.

Sexy NSX.

Meet Christian’s NA1 Acura NSX. He goes through wheels like people go through socks. As he awaits tires for his TE37 SL’s, he still has his holy grail Regamaster EVO’s on the fronts. Even though they’re mismatching, we find it to have some cool Japanese character that way.

That’s him sipping on coffee while JohnP tries to show Christian his semi-awkward boner.

Nostalgic Wednesday: 3 Kings

 Few years ago, David posted about the colorful JACCS accord for Nostalgic Wednesday. I must say, the functional style of these cars never get old. One of the reasons why I <3 Hondas were the JTCC Accords. These Accords stood out compared to the other cars on the track. The JACCS, Castrol Mugen, and the PIAA; I personally dubbed them the “3 Kings”. I loved the high-revving symphony from the naturally aspirated F20Bs, the tucked uni-lug 17 inch OZ wheels, and the unforgettable liveries on each car.

Nowadays, Honda head are drawn more towards the Civics, S2000s, and NSXs; attention to the accords are declining especially towards the CD6 sedans.
