That one time #backintheday we watched a movie then built a car.... ill try to make this story as quick as possible
#circa #2002 ish, watching the #1st @fastandfuriousmovie for the 50th time with a close friend, @arxfitness, & I knew this car had to be made ...... Before the film was even close to finishing, a plan was set to build one of those #Iconic understated yet #menacing #BLACKCIVIC 's that were seen in the beginning & end scenes of the movie which made such a big impact on the storyline.
our friend asked me, can you build something like that with my base model dx #civic ........ "ONLY BETTER", Eric said of course he can & I said
" heck yeah let's do this !" Then I said, it had to have the biggest honda motor possible. At the time that was a Prelude H22. It also had to have supercharger for low-end torque stop light action and of course some real big brakes to slow it down lol.
Well in order to make sure that was the path that this Civic was going down & what the owner really wanted to do with his daily He requested that we start small. so we added a cold air intake & exhaust to his anemic DX motor that way he could see if he liked it, well the horsepower bug got him. he said I have to go through with your plan now #LU_KA_ZIE .....
THEN he put a BIG roll of hundreds in my hand and said " This is going to be magical just wait and see"
Little did I know at the time of this build the connections & friendships that would be made because of this event then & into the future. ... so awsome. .
We set out to build one badass LIL Street Machine in #honda clothing and ended up creating something so much more than that.
That Civic may be gone now but the story will always live on because of @FASTANDFURIOUS
