Honda Tuning Magazine’s Readers Rides
We were honored when Honda Tuning Magazine asked us to review their “Reader’s Rides” page. While we aren’t really into the “rice” scene as much as we used to be, one of our site owners, Jason, decided it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane…
To start with, here’s a pic of Jason’s old Acura:
Cool right? Lightning bolts and chrome NEVER go out of style!!
But seriously, that was a fun car for Jason. It was a 94 Acura Integra GS-R, with the VTEC B18C 4cyl. Sure, it was only 1.8L, but it had almost 180 hp. Says Jason “that car was sneaky fast — from idle, it would race to 8300 RPM in first gear in about 5 seconds. The hardest part of racing that car was shifting from 1st to 2nd as fast as you could, which you almost always had to do to win a street race because first topped out at about 45 I think. Anyways, it was fun until somebody screwed up the driver’s door trying to break into it.”
So, needless to say, Jason helped us with this review.
To start with, we don’t like the pop-up that loads when you hit the Reader’s Rides page. We’re not sure what the pop-up says (it was blocked), but we think pop-ups are SO 1997. Anyways, the site loads fast, looks good, and has quite a few pics on it. While there aren’t a lot of vehicles on it right now, it seems to be growing quickly. Our favorite car was Jale’s 2000 Honda S2000 nicknamed “Chuck Norris“. Sharp car, seems fairly stock, but the comments had us laughing out loud. Here’s a taste:
- “Chuck” is my daily driver. When I hit bumps on the road, it feels like a roundhouse kick to the back of my head.
- Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
- Chuck Norris cannot love, he can only kill.
Here’s a glimpse of “Chuck”:
We like the Honda Tuning Magazine Reader’s Ride section, and we encourage anyone with a Honda family product to put it up on the board.
This was a paid post. Thank you Honda Tuning Magazine!
