    I thought maybe this carmaker needed its own thread, because it seems that Hondas are both extremely loved and hated in the states. Honda's don't in Denmark don't have a huge scene like they do in the states, but it's my impression that American Honda fans are (yes, I know I'm generalizing a lot here) douches.

    What's the deal with the American Honda fags? Because when I watch movies of American Honda meetups on YouTube, it seems that they all sound like douches. Stuff like "Yo bro, check out my mad tyte JDM car". And the worst thing is, their cars often look really good IMO.

    It also seems that Honda owners and other JDM/Japanese make car owners don't go together over there. I hang out with guys with Supras, Silvias, Skylines, etc. but it seems like all the Honda people group up, excluded from the group of other jap-cars, in the states.

    So what's the deal? I just want to clarify all the hatred to the Hondas, and if it really is the cars or the owners.


    Also, I know there's some Honda enthusiasts like me in here, so I guess we can discuss Honda stuff in here.


    Aaaaaand one last thing. Just curious, do you think these look good or bad?

    Cool
    Ugly

    I wish we had those over here. Apparently they were only sold in USA. That'd be the best winterbeater ever!

    Man I now desire getting a EG learn on it and possibly turbo it.

    Only bad thing about in the states with other Honda owner's are them totally trashing them out.

    The wagovan was sold everywhere, it was called a Shuttle in most places though.

    I love Hondas, wish the owners weren't douchebags though. I only occasionally meet a Honda owner who isn't retarded, generally they don't know anything about cars.

    Well I know we weren't the only country with 4WD shuttles. Japan got some rather crazy models of it.

    Personally I like the 4th gen wagon better but it's always been because of Wagon Attack II:

    The Prelude would've been 10 times cooler IMO if it was RWD. The design, IMO, isn't very cool, but it'd be a much better car in general if it was RWD.

    I like Hondas, but all the Honda owners near me put pink tow bars on the back and put them on purple or red wheels.

    With lots of stickers.

    The EG has ONE sticker on it, in the engine bay on the strut tower. It's an ARP sticker. For obvious reasons.

    I'd adorn mine with stickers for the stuff I put in my cars if I could find stickers for all the stuff. But it'd have to be subtle ones like Ferosso's window stickers.

    I can't say I like Hondas because 90% of them are over hyped as hell.
    Yeah kid, good for you, you drive a Civic DX. It's not a sportscar.

    As far as Hondas I like, I'd say some are the NSX, the S2000, and a ton of shit Honda only made in Japan.

    The best Honda ever made was a Japan-only thing... :(

    113 horsepower, air cooled, and rev hungry -- And this was in 1969.

    I like Hondas for very different reasons than most people.

    The chassis are light, other than that theyre pretty lack-luster (poor rigidity, bad suspension, etc.)
    The styling isnt particularily interesting and I could care even less for what people do to them for the sake of looking cool. Admittedly I do like the EJ/EK civic body style, but most of the others I just accept the way they look due to their weight.

    Honda engines are what really impress me. Even the lowly D-series economy engines are capable of impressive NA output compared to many other manufactures.
    They are elegantly simple both mechanically and electrically, making them among the easiest cars to work on and modify.
    Then you add the huge aftermarket support and the low price for tuning hardware and you have the basis for a cheap and effective race car.


    Also, I disslike a lot Honda owners. But thats another discussion.

    I like Ferosso's civic. Acuras are generally pretty nice, NSX is dead sexy but it's an Acura over here. CRXs are pretty nice too. Civics are really reliable and hold their resale for a long time. They're just very generic stock. Some ones like Ferosso's are dead sexy though.

    I don't mind Honda's it's just that over here in central jersey there are honda's EVERYWHERE and they are beat up with a fart cannon and always try to race. I'm just trying to go get a hotdog jeez just because your car is loud doesn't make it fast silly. I see a few that are really nice.

    My Civic is extremely loud, but I don't have a fart can on it.

    It actually has full 2.25" piping from engine to rear bumper, with a catalytic converter, smog legal (if we even had smog here). I run low restriction exhaust so the high comp D can spin up fast and easily, but that means it's also hella loud. At least it's bellowy and not RATTATATATATTTATATA like every other ricebox around here.

    God, it's sitting out there in the shop and all I have to do is get a clutch and head gasket and I can drive it again. I'm so excited I could just shit.

    Then again I still have some cleaning and painting to do, polishing, gotta dig up my correct pressure plate now too.
