I wanted to get started on this post before it becomes old news like some of my unseen Japan coverage. I wanted to get it out also before the HDAY Video goes live on my youtube in a few weeks.
I want to try and get this post across to you how much of an important event this has become to me. Every so often I need that kick up the backside to reignite the spark inside me that keeps pushing me forward & HDAY is the event for me that really does that every year without fail.
I flew over and had a couple of rest days in Florida before I flew up to Newark airport and headed towards HDAY, which must now be the biggest event on the Honda show calendar annually. To me, its the best show there is. It has it all, incredible show cars, super fast drag cars, friendly crowd and an amazing atmosphere created by the main stage which is almost becoming a mini festival within a car show. It truly is awesome.
S2000 on Enkei RPF1's started off the day for me. A timeless combination.
This stunning blue Turbo DC2 laid host to an incredibly clean engine bay and looked great on the Whistler Wheels.
Another S2000 on the RPF1 but with a different size set up demonstrating my point.
EF Hatch with a creative bonnet showing off the B Series engine & coated in downstar parts.
The Engine bay of an EF sedan was gorgeous, I didnt manage a usable photo of the exterior.
This DC5 looked great on the aggressively sized Work Emotions, matched with the clean engine bay with the Downstar spikes !
Civic Coupe with a 3.2L J Swap...
My friend John's gorgeous DC5.
RAVSPEC had on their stand a Turbo NSX.
This NSX is owned by Javier, who is the operator of HDAY
Wide Body S2000 looked pretty crazy
From what I know, the above cars including the EG above are all also owned by Javier. Work hard & play harder!
Amazing Vivid Blue Ep3 on show, I've got more photos of this from the event I'm releasing at a later date.
This stunning RHD Pheonix Yellow DC2 fitted with Top1 Motors front winglets, side skirts & rear diffuser looked amazing! - Top1 is available through us here, sale now on!
The S2000 had the Downstar S2000 valve cover kit fitted, looked amazing
This S2000 sat great on the CCW's, its engine bay was my favourite part. It really did look amazing !
Gold BBS's looking incredible in the New Jersey sun!
Marty Albert jr. EG looked nothing short of absolutely amazing, I have once again gotten a group of photos of this from the event to show you at a later date but you can see his Supercharged K20 which puts down over 450bhp at 7500rpm looks as badass as it drives!!
This is another Marty Alberts car, but this time Jr's Father! His 500+ BHP EK is insane!! I once again have some great images of this in more detail to show you at a slightly later time, I don't want to spoil it by them getting lost inside this large show post.
Bobby's Midori green boosted B series EK was on show at Franks downstar booth and what a car! Drew the crowds in all weekend, I also did a shoot of this car on the Sunday so we will come back to this at a later date.
I must have a thing for Midori Green as this Acura TL captured my heart over the weekend too.

Downstar is super popular on the east coast which is so sick to see! We stock all his stuff so shoot us an email with any questions ! Lets start getting some bays looking this good here in the UK..
Time for some Drag Racing!
They Run a street class called the SI Shootout which is always fun to watch before the main event
I'm really not sure if there is anything much better than the burnouts these guys do.
The Downstar Coupe laying down some rubber
The noise these cars make goes right through you. When that 2 step kicks in it feels like a new heart beat.
After watching the qualifying for the Drag series I headed back into the show ground to see what I may have missed first time round
This Civic coupe had some incredible parts on.
For instance, Ferrari 458 Carbon bucket seats..
and a crazy boot!!
This Acura had an incredible interior, all together very well executed car ! ...

VRaceworks Em1 Coupe
Love this ITR.
I want to end this Saturday post on this picture of HondaPro Jason & some of his fans who asked for another photo. It almost sums up Honda Day for me, just people who have the same interests enjoying each others company. I love it, i love the variety of the cars and the people, every race of human comes together to bring every type of modified Honda & Acura to the event, which is hosted fantastically by Javier & the HDay crew.
I honestly cannot wait to show you the Sunday show & the rest of the blogs I'm planning on this event.
Thank you for sticking it out.
