this is my 1982 honda prelude automatic.. with a pretty good story. vehicle was saved from a junkyard waiting to be crushed they gave it some time to try and sell the vehicle because it ran great and was in pretty good condition but would not drive. my friend was freinds with the guy that owned the junkyard and told me about it and needless to say went and looked at it and was sold as soon as i saw it. purchased it and it ran great. got it on a lift and there was a crack in the transmission and fluid was rushing out of the crack got it welded and it's been running and driving ever since.

anyways i was raised a military brat lived in japan for 6 years and since i was little have just always loved old jtin vehicles im not sure why but always have. i'm a huge fan of what the japanese do as far as drift, vip and especially bosozoku and that is the reason for the little bit's of bosozoku i have done with the car

had the car did a little bit of work couldnt afford it with my crappy job at the time so i sold the car to a good freind who had the funds to fix what was needed well he got a job offer had to move away and i got to buy it back

sorry for the crappy pics all done with cell phone but you get the idea

first day i seen it at the junkyard
Image

after it was sold and at my freinds house. he started doin the body work
Image

then he painted it white (i'm not to fond. i want to paint it back red eventually)
Image

this is what it looked like when i purchased it back
Image

then i started with all the modding.


boso exhaust first off (dont mind him lol)
Image

came home one day and found a wooden post with concrete on the end and this happened to my car
Image

installed steering that i got in japan many many years ago added some tacky floor mats just because adn some fuzzy dice
Image

then the wheels went with rota aleica 15x8 +10 offset with some 175-55-15
Image

this was before raising the car back up so it could drive
Image

next thing was external oil cooler my freind had this one laying around so i tryed it out
Image

the other oil cooler was temp until i could finally find the fc rx7 oil cooler
Image

lastly installed some fender mirrors.. here's a few shots i took earlier today out of boredom
Image
Image




sorry for the long drawn out thread... still searching for some peices to complete the car and repainting down the road plus a few other things to add on

Must say I think the dangling oil cooler hoses just look pretentiously silly when any sane person would secure them behind the bumper.. but I guess that is the whole point of bosozoku. :mrgreen:
Burgundy interior certainly looks suitably lush.
Wheel design & lowness look great, and nice to see the effort that has gone in to it so far.

How about some insane amount of camber like those Oni kyan Bippu cars?
(And lose the fuzzy dice)

Whoa.......great looking SN! So curious as to how you lowered it? What type of coilovers did you use in the front and back? Was it a lot of modification?

i'll have to look into it it's been so long i cant remember we actually cross refreneced the shocks to something that fits ok.. had to shim the shocks in the knuckles but they hold great for a couple years now and for springs it's ground controls.. i have about 3 inches more i can lower in the rear and about 2 in the front

Car looks great. Wheel and tire combo turned out nicely too.
