The Black Prince

If you have been watching for the ones that stand out at meeting in Holland, you must have seen Lex Prins his “Black Prince”. The Honda Civic started as Lex his first Honda and has seen many transformations. Lex got hooked in the stance scene and has been busy all winter to make the coup as it is right now.

Lex was already featured back in 2014 with his buddy  Calvin in our “Coupe brothers” post, Calvin went all-out drag civic and lex went the other way with more and more stance. Someone once said that 10J wheels don’t really fit a civic, but Lex shows this is really possible.

Lex has been attending most of the japanese meetings in Holland and is now scheduling to show the car at the Honda Euro Meet in france.

This in combination with the good weather the last few weeks, was a good moment to do a shoot with the “Black Prince” With the above two pictures you can see the overall look but also the interior has not been untouched. Lex decided to go with a Wood/Gold combination on his GripRoyal steering wheel and make sure he can shift easilly with the D1 shiftknob including 2 extenders. Also the doorpanels have been covered by burberry fabric to change the inside look of the car.

Breaking Necks and causing wrecks with the car is possible, hence in need for a Junction Produce headrest to rest your neck when driving on the road.

Lowering your car and making it look a bit better by colouring the trim parts of the car in the orginal colour of the car is one thing, but we can all agree that wheels make the car. You can have a freshly painted car, but if the wheels don’t add up, you can completely miss the boat. Lex had the wheels custom made in the UK with a 16×9 et5 and 16×10 et0 setup and finished it with the spike lugnuts. Also the BMW E36 trunk spoiler is a nice addition to the overall look of the car.

Eventually the sun started to go down and it was time to call it a night. Soon up we will also feature the Fiat 500 lex his girlfriend drives, who also got hooked and low and clean.

A Moment of Silence for These Abandoned Fukushima Cars

Since it is already 5 years ago. Have you ever thought about the many cars that must have been abandoned in the radio active Fukushima area? Seeing these pictures below makes me realise that not only human lives we’re ripped apart but also some human-car relationships. I mean, we all know that cars are more than just a heap of metal, so imagine what it would be like if you suddenly had to leave your beloved build behind, the one you had been working on for years, because that very metal was becoming increasingly radio active.

Therefore I would like to ask a minute of silence in honour of our JDM brothers and sisters and the cars they had to leave behind, not excluding of course the hundreds of cars that had been waiting at dealerships for a new owner that would wash and polish them, take them to meetings and fit them with new parts as that will probably never happen  🙁

At the very least, google has made it possible to visit the site of the tragedy so we can see with our own eyes the many cars that have been left behind. Also a big shoutout to Juicebox for doing a good job sorting through the google streetview imagery to find these JDM jewels.

Just looking at these Evos, 350z’s, S2000s, Skylines, Supras, 300ZX’s, AE86’s, Silvia’s and many more will make you cry like a leaky radiator. And this is just what we can see on the streets, imagine the cars we can’t see! It makes you want to go out and drive your car this instant or give it a good service.

Streetpower 2016

As with every big event, it always starts with a small pre-meet for everybody who got up on time.
This year our group was even bigger with ofcourse Alex being late…
Special addition to our group was a friend from Lex with the stance coupe. He brought Lars who was kind enough to take pictures throughout the day.

So at the local gasstation near Circuit Zandvoort, you can imagine that we were not the only cars to stop before attending the event.
This UK civic was competing in the dragracing shootout due to the markings on his window.

Also Laurens had his Integra Type-r MOT’d and roadlegal again for 2 weeks and was a last minute entry to our group. Next to the repaint and some suspension upgrades, the car was back on the road without a few of new parts, which will be shown on Hondafest.

Laurens his co-passenger Thom Kwerreveld also shot some great footage and will be writing for San-toso this year.
Next to the stand with our cars, some of us were also competing in the dragracing event helt on saturday an sunday morning.
In the picture below you can see Calvin having some late-minute discussion with the rest.

Calvin entered with his B18 Turbo Coupe, Sidney ran his B18 all-motor civic coup and Lex was running his little DOCH D-series ED Hatch.

Next to our own cars, we also love to see the other cars people bring to race. One that stood out was this Toyota Corolla station, all caged’up with lexan windows. And also the little Toyota Glaza aka pocketrockets were fun to see racing.

The thing we have been seeing for the last couple of years is STANCE. Running camber with deep wheels used to look like a thing for the bigger lexus models but Civics are getting the hang of it like this yellow EK hatch and our own Lex with his “Blackprince”  Coupe with 10J wheels on the back.

For those who have missed 100% tuning last october, might have missed that our friendly belgium neighbours have a Liberty Walk kitted Nissan GTR, which looked way better in the bright sunlight from last sunday.

Ofcourse when you talk Nissan, you cannot love Jim his R33 GTR with upgraded brakes and Volk Racing Ce28N wheels. Jim again enjoyed him on the track the day before. Also 2 jewels of Datsun cars were present by the Kamikaze Speedshop.

Due the large amount of the pictures that Lars took, we won’t keep you from work any longer and continue our review of Automaxx Streetpower in the next week. Again, Thank you Lars for providing us with footage.
