A force to be reckoned with known by many as the Honda-Game which by the way makes up more than 60 percent of imports. With a wide selection to choose from Hondas are one of the most popular and common machines to build. To all die hard Honda owners it was something that brought you into the Honda-Game, whether it was your first cheap daily to commute in or simply having that one friend that took you around the block to feel what v-tec really is, and boy o boy it was all down hill from there. You are now hooked to the adrenaline and excitement that one can experience.

Personally coming from a past of my first car being a honda civic I know first hand what it is spending countless hours under the hood seeking performance upgrades and I can’t even count on one hand how many times I have pulled my motor out either for a rebuild project or to do a swap, but this feature is not about me.

Brian Myers repping “Team Blur San Diego” out in SoCal has one of the cleanest well put together teggys I have came across in a while. The mod list on this beauty is as long as my arms.

Words by Brian 

I’ve been into cars a long time, and the first time I felt “pulled” towards an Integra was when I picked up a magazine with a Championship White Type R on the cover.  I bought my Integra early 2002 during high school after my first one was stolen after a month of owning it.  The car has gone through a lot of changes: bolt-ons, nitrous, turbo, body kits, lip kits, wrecking it, rebuilding it, raced it, showed it, to just cruising it and enjoying being in it.  I find inspiration from various things around me and from the culturally rich automotive community that Southern California has to offer, I enjoy it all.   I had to learn everything along the way from just the tools in my garage and I look forward to challenging myself with things I have not tried yet with this car.
