EVENT COVERAGE: Honda Day 2012 Englishtown, NJ

Honda Day 2012 has come and gone with this event growing each year and more people sharing the passion for everything Honda.  Waking up and leaving at 1am has become the norm if you want to get a “prime spot” in the car show or whatever they call it these days.  I wanted to change things up this year and actually enjoy the event without being excessively tired, so I decided to enter the gates in the later afternoon. Reasoning being is that I am tired of waiting in line for countless hours in which I could be doing better things like sleeping, but also had prior obligations like doing the Warrior Dash event in Northern NY.

For the past six years, I have been driving my 06 S2000 each year to this event, unfortunately it didn’t make it out due to the catalytic converter taking a crap and breaking my o2 sensor in the process.  So cruising in the Nissan Altima while smoking a Montecristo I head down solo to meet up with the crew.

With it being difficult to contact everyone because of dead phones and no chargers, I was fortunate enough to run into a friend of mine Manny T with his RHD DA Integra.  I know this owner personally and it has taken him a long time to get to the point where he is now.  Car I would  say is 90% done with a little details to be addressed but the end result should be nothing short of perfection.

More Integras but of the DC variety.  JDM RHD Type R nevers gets old, especially one that is done up right!

I swear the ESR (Eat Sleep Race) is at every Honda Event I go to on the East Coast. Anyways I have seen the PY ITR over the years and it is always immaculate.

Honda Day this year was filled with quality builds that were found in the “main part” of the parking lot.  This EK Civic is a prime example of what goes on here in the North East.

I had to post this engine bay.  Fully shaved with a wire tuck, it always looks like it would not run, but it does and runs rather well.

Lots of vendors were on hand at Raceway Park.  A lot of quality parts on hand and available for purchase for the right price,  if you got the cash.

No legitimate Honda gathering is not complete without an NSX.  This interior is in excellent condition even with taking its age into consideration, seats look so inviting.

Exterior is adorned with Rio Yellow Pearl that shows its characteristics in the sunlight. A stock NSX is a great drive and how Honda engineered it to be.

I love seeing Hondas the sport rustless and undamaged quarter panels.  That is something that will never go out of style

Front mount with Mugen bumper and a TSX with CCW’s in the background = WIN !!!!!

We close out the post by saying that we finally had good weather this year.  For the past three years IIRC the weather has not been entirely cooperative.  Englishtown is always a good meet at the end of the summertime.  You MIGHT see us this year at ITR EXPO in Ohio next week so look out for updates and pics.   Keep It Flush will definitely be at Wek Fest on August 26th in NJ doing coverage and enjoying the day with the crew.
