Hondas today are like the chevys in the old days.

I had to go to Wal-Mart a while back, so before I started shopping I went by the magazine section and picked up Honda-tuning.
There was a guy standing next to me. He was around 70 years old, white beard and a USS something navy boat hat. He looked at me picking up the magazine and said :"that's a really good magazine" Do you have a Honda?

We ended up talking for 10 minutes until his wife came to get him (lol)..

Apparently, he has a 1992 Acura with a supercharged b18a with all kinds of shit. The guy knew what he was talking about.... It was definetelly a suprise for me to meet someone like that. I did see myself in this old man. I told him about honda-tech even, and he told me that he has been here before and read information....

K20a. Yeah the import Vs. Domestic battle is tired, but yet its still a rivalry and a fun one. I don't know about you but when I first had my ek after I lowered it, I had those guys tryin to fuck with me all the time. Im not pissed about it but after my motors in I can actually have fun. Thats crazy that guy had a charged teg. He sounded like a cool guy though

Wow. I thought there were mainly imports down in L.A.? guess not. I bet you probably see alot of those 05 Stangs runnin around down there

CA is known to be the Capital of imports...There are a lot of imports here trust me but they don't like to race with us :wink: So we have no choice but race Domestics... :wink:

the import scene where I live is so damn weak that all I race is domestics anymore. The imports that are around here are a joke....90% of everything around here are 15sec. cars...basically stock with some bolt ons. There are a bunch of DSM's but those cars stay at the track usually. I personally don't think the import vs. domestic thing is dead at all. I probably get into some type of arguement (unwarranted on my part) with a V8 guy once a month. Alot of these V8 guys have a true hatred for Honda's around here, and they won't hesitate to be straight up assholes for no reason. In september when I still had my Civic hatch with a mildly built H22/LSD swap I was headed to Sears to exchange some broken tools. There is this guy and his friend up against the wall smoking by the entrance. Well I am walking over and I start overhearing them discussing this dudes mustang. Well I keep walking and the one guy yells out..."hey, there's something wrong with your exhaust..it sounds funny...like a joke". This particular hatch of mine had an HKS Hi Power exhaust with 2.5 inch mendrel straight back then pulling an angle, I fabbed the whole thing...no leaks, no nothin..so I knew he was being an asshole right off. Well I looked over and said, "I dont' think so man" and kept walking. He got all pissed all of a sudden and yelled "Oh I'm sorry, I forgot you have one of those fuckin racecars" and him and his friend busted out laughin. Meanwhile I glance over to see his stock early 90's 5.0 mustang that I could give three car lengths to and still own. I let it go though cause I just get a bad feel from the fuckers. V8 guys are hostile, so nothings dead around here. I make it a point to go after them. All they see are the cars that are a joke...nothing thats about any kind of business.
