HONDA DAY events cater to the vast Honda enthusiasts gathered together to celebrate anything Honda. Honda Day comprises of two events; one on April 13 and 14th at Atco Raceway in New Jersey, and one on August 10th and 11th in Englishtown, New Jersey. This was my first time attending Honda Day, and I was really overwhelmed at the amount of people that were in attendance last weekend at Atco. I've been thinking of visiting the E-Town event since I was told that the English Town event packs even more spectators and vehicles. Would be interesting to see. Originally I did not attend the event with the intention to provide coverage, however as I walked and checked out the vehicles that were present, I naturally wanted to capture the imagery and lifestyle and share it with our viewers and followers. I managed to snag my buddy's Canon T3, a far cry from my usual gear, however it did surprisingly well! Special thanks to Jason Cao for letting me use his camera, and the whole PSI crew out of Rochester, NY who I drove up with. Also helping me with this one was Hieuy Truong from AZN photography in Rochester who assisted by providing some juicy wide angle shots to give us a different perspective. Read More

For the third year in a row, our annual First Class Fitment meet at Princeton Airport has been a successful bookend to the East Coast show circuit. The event is organized as an invitational showcase for the best examples of the fitment scene on this side of the Mississippi, and the key draw for this show has always been a concentrated diversity that simply doesn't exist in other events. First Class Fitment is a manifestation of Canibeat's commitment to bringing our readers the largest variety of cars in our community crammed into a single day of food, music, friends, and feature-worthy cars Read More

Porsche is a brand that people dream about owning from when they are little kids pushing around their hot-wheels to when they are adults pushing around wheels of their own. Their philosophy when it comes to building a performance influenced chassis, has remained true to its original form for the most part, has managed to last decades and has done all this while succeeding even with all the changes that have come, technology wise, through the years.

2012 is a tough year to be a Honda/Acura enthusiast. The Civic Si, once the poster-child of the import scene, has become, at best, an also ran. While the car isn't terrible, this year's Civic marks the 12th year of the ~200 hp K-series motor as the heart of Honda performance. The announcement of Acura's new ILX brought nothing to the table either, sharing the same 2.4L powerplant as its Honda twin (and the TSX seen here). While the CR-Z should serve as a shot in the arm, the two seater's hybrid setup brings unwanted cost and complexity, and falls short of what enthusiasts expected from the long-waited CR-X revival. While there exist some excellent choices in slightly older Hondas and Acuras, the performance and luxury options have changed significantly since import fans first scooped up Integras, Preludes, and Si's en masse. Those in the market now have the options of used Evo's, 350Z's, WRX's, and RWD Lexus and Infiniti luxury sedans that offer significantly more performance and status than a TSX, RSX, Accord, TL, or Civic could possibly offer.
