Congratulations! A fantastic looking 110. BTW We had an impromptu Honda S luncheon today and a visit to your garage came up as a road trip destination - now we have one more reason to visit!

Anyways, congrats on your Kenmeri. :wink: :tu:

I thought Mopars were rare. I have a 71 'Cuda and under 17K were made. By American standards, that isn't much. By Japanese car standards, there are a million Mopars to get parts from and make something worthwhile.

Now that I'm getting into Japanese cars, I'm getting an appreciation for actual rarity. I think I've seen a whopping two Honda S5/6/800s on eBay in a year. I've seen one solid kenmeri on eBay. One or two hakos.

Looks like a very cool car! I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Thank you for your kind words.

Sorry for the delay, work has been hectic & haven’t had much time to post. I still haven’t taken many pictures other than the ones I took the day it arrived. I will post more soon.

Well I had purchased the car early in the year from a private seller who has a large collection Japanese & European sports cars. His name I’ll keep anonymous but he originally imported the car himself years back. He flew out to Japan to specifically buy a few cars. Visited a few dealers & ended up buying this and I think two others from FLEX in Japan. It had been so long since I had seen the car last I had forgot the condition it was in. I must admit I was quite happy to see how nice & complete the car was.

The interior is very complete & in good condition. There are a few things that I want to change but overall Im very happy. Unfortunately on it's trip home the driver mentioned he went through a few rough storms. Both quarter glass rubber seals leaked & SOAKED the carpet behind the passenger seat. Good thing the carpet is cut into sections & wasn’t much trouble pulling it all out.

I thought I had taken pictures of the front but I guess not. In the excitement I must have forgot. So here is the only one I have.

Image

Image

Anyone know what this decal stands for?

Image


L20 w/tripple Mikuki & headers.

Image

Image

Plan to get some new tires so they match all the way around.


Image


Image


While washing the car this lil guy came out.

Image

He should have stayed where he was & it wouldn't have ended this way.

Image

Ran out to get these dry packets to absorb some of the moisture left behind.

Image

Image

With the change of time. I only have about 2.5hrs before the sun goes down after work. I did take it out for a short test drive and snapped this picture.

Image

Two of my good friends came by to check out the car. One of them had a REALLY nice SLR. Maybe he can post some more pictures.

Will post more tomorrow.
