For as long as I can remember, Hondas don’t always have the best rep. Clear tails, non-matching body panels and exhaust canisters bigger than a toddler could be to blame but every once in-awhile comes along a Honda that makes you shut your trap; one that actually gives Hondas enthusiasts a good name. They come boasting a quality mod list and a look that has you doing a double-take. This Honda S2000, owned by Karl Perez, is a prime example of how you piece together an automobile that doesn’t embarrass a whole brand and group of enthusiasts, so whip out your pens and pencils and take note.
We here at Canibeat hope your week rolled by just as quick as ours did. Before we let you off into the weekend, another submission from photographer Ejay Marte displays a sleek Corvette z06 on carbon fiber Strasse s5 wheels. Oh, did I mention this black beauty has over 700 horsepower under the hood?
Most often in the modified car scene, we start to see trends, and things like wheels and such quickly become “played out” and unoriginal. In other cases, we get thrown off our rockers when someone actually steps out of the box and expresses their taste without care of what people might think. Joe’s WRX wagon fits this bill to a T! Upon quick inspection, it is not hard to tell that this car has received a lot of attention, and most importantly, Joe built it for himself and nobody else.
Wow! There have been a lot of quality builds that have been spawning out of Hawaii as of late and this 2010 Genesis 3.8L is no exception. This beauty belonging to Jon Macapagal and was previously featured on Canibeat prior to him obtaining this rare set of Gram lights you see here with CRAZY specs (19×9 -10 f & 19×10 -20 rear). The previous feature was shot by our own Anthony Lezada when Jon still lived in California, prior to being stationed in Hawaii. Check it out here.
To the general public, the car is seen simply as a means of transportation whose sole purpose is to get you where you need to go. However, when does a car become more than just a car. Miguel’s show-stopping 1992 Honda Civic is much more than an average daily; it’s embellished with character and every part tells it’s own story.
A couple of years back, the automotive market in China was in desperate need of a revival. With gasoline running through his veins and aspirations to change the local automotive scene, Zhang, along with his wife Candy, founded their own performance shop: A-One Racing. Based in Shanghai, China, A-One hit the ground running, and through their exponential growth in business, their dream to become Rotiform’s exclusive dealer for the Chinese market became a reality.

Leaving a good impression is something we all want to do in this lifetime. Whether it’s helping someone out in a jam, being a polite host, or just being a stand up person, everyone strives to leave a lasting mark on this earth. Like so many of us, David “Slim” Whitehead wanted to make sure he built a car that left a lasting impression. His plan for the RSX you see in front of you was to be a nice signature; not over the top but something clean and tidy. At first sight, it’s easy to understand why this car stands out in a field of many; the color, the wheels, the engine work, and everything about it just flow so well together. David, having done most of the work himself, is always happy to receive the looks and questions from people that come across this unique Acura.
Hope you northerners are surviving in this cold weather! This Wednesday we warm you up with Jarald Yutadco’s bagged Honda RSX, shot by Jordan Adkins.
Whether it was sports, homework, or learning how to ride a bike, chances are your father was by your side, teaching you what you know today; passing down lessons and tradition is how families extend love and knowledge to their younger generation. Up in the Pacific Northwest in Everett, Washington, that father-son relationship was more than early Sunday morning football sessions in the backyard; it was Dad’s prize possession sitting beautifully in the garage.
To be completely honest, I didn’t expect much from this KIA when it was first posted by Carlos Villanueva on our local Atlanta forum. Carlos had recently traded in his light modified Suzuki Aerio for the black Koup, and seemed to have serious ambition for the humble Forte.
