    Not too sure what kind of style is going on with this four door Honda. So is this the Socal look finally hitting the Buckeye state????

    Not sure if you can make it out. The top artwork on the doors is a Dragon. Directly under that is a stripe made from skulls and crossbones.

    So I'm thinking a little Ninja and a little Pirate going on here??? I didn't think they mixed. You were either a Ninja or you were a Pirate.

    Back in the day we'd have said it looked like he spent a little too much time in the JC Whitney catalog.....

    Oh those were the days. You could buy all the right parts & get a motor that got 101MPG & made a 1000HP. All for a couple hundred bucks. Oh man that iluminated jester hood ornament was to die for. :lol:

    All that bling for the family sedan???? How many 18 1/2 year olds do you know that like to be seen in dad's commuter regardless of the camo? :D (having ridden herd on two 18 1/2 year olds from a series of family sedans)

    Thanks for the nudge on Whitney, I had forgotten.

    Getting a copy of the latest catalog was a treat. Heck, I bought a JCW because I thought it stood for JC Whitney.

    At one time that was the place to buy VW parts from. As I recall most were from Mexico & Brazil. I bought many a Bug part there too.

    At one point in time, you could buy a 1962 Lotus Elite Kit from the Sears Catalog!
    Body, chassis, wiring kit, engine & transmission, the whole thing.
    All you had to do was assemble it.
    Cost was around $1,200.00.

    I always wondered how much it cost to print, ship all the catalogs that they did (JC Whitney).

    Doesn't the rear bumper look MINIesk?

    And is that a "Justa" rear wing?

    Hell.... even the rear tail lights look similar. And are those MINI wheel arch lights?

    So, we have skulls and crossbones, dragons, ye olde English lettering, a racing wing, an exhaust, and wheels... All on a dusty gold Honda Accord?

    Tell me it is Multiple Personality Disorder. A legally blind person?

    Please be something other than no comprehension of taste whatsoever... Please...

    I don't want one, but for some reason, the 500 is growing on me way faster then the Coupe is. So, that is a good example of why having the MINI line grow, is a good thing. :yesnod:

    Yeah, the first couple I took kept getting the wipers in the pic. So I turned off the wipers and ended up with a rain splattered shot.:incazzato:
