EIBACH MEET PHILADELPHIA
››THE ALL-HONDA AFFAIR LANDS IN PHILLY
Between the mega car shows that travel the country, the regional events, and the countless local meets that, whether reoccurring or spontaneous, typically attract a large and loyal following, the summer months are packed with car nerd activities. Some prefer fully coordinated events complete with big-dollar sponsors while others are more apt to hit a meet for a little organized confusion in a free-for-all sort of environment.
The Eibach Meet has always hovered somewhere in the middle: organized and structured yet offering a “come and go as you please” vibe. Being forced to stay put for 8-plus hours isn’t everyone’s idea of a good time, and having the freedom to choose is one of the things that makes local meets much more accessible. So you can imagine that when Eibach Meet announced a Philly stop last August, local Honda enthusiasts were understandably excited.
Hosted at Turn 14’s warehouse parking lot, the Eibach Meet brought the same laidback, tight-knit feel you’d find at its Socal event. Along with that comes some incredibly well-built cars, some of which regularly keep a low profile but shook things up by making an appearance at the event.
Throughout the day, plenty of Type Rs and a healthy amount of genuine, tough-to-source Japanese goods could be found at every corner. The K-series movement was out in full force, but that doesn’t mean the B-family was disregarded. A number of built and boosted as well as naturally aspirated setups made sure the ’90s hero wasn’t forgotten.

››We’ll exploit Ray Delgado’s AP2 any chance we get. One of our favorites, it was featured last year and still looks immaculate. This time around, his S2000 is on TE37S rather than its previous Regamaster Evos, but his signature wheel color remains. ››Christian Loza’s Mugen-clad TSX leading a small pack into Turn 14. ››You might think the word “classic” is thrown around far too much in the Honda world, and we’d be inclined to agree, but when it comes to a white NSX on bronze Mugen MF10S, well...
››William Wang made an appearance with his del Sol, which was featured on the cover of Honda Tuning in 2013. ››Super Street alumni Shyam Sookram brought out his ITR outfitted with tons of Mugen parts, JDM Recaros, and Spoon Sports– decorated engine bay. ››We know, we know, you had that car in your Gran Turismo garage. We got it. This CTR is looking better than ever after a restoration and some choice additions from Spoon Sports.
