Yea.. actually. Part of the reason I bought the prelude was because of the people on the forum here.

Exactly my stance on Hondas and "ricers". It's the optimistic viewpoint, if you will. Even though I own a 240 and like to go sideways instead of straight more often nowadays, I can still appreciate a nicely done Honda. Especially a Prelude...I see you own a 4th Gen Lude too. I'm considering getting a 4G VTEC and building an all motor monster. I would boost it...but I find alot more integrity and respect in a NA car. Well a NA Honda with drag racing in mind at least, as opposed to a boosted Honda built for dragging.

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

ok, so i drive a honda prelude too (3rd gen si) and i love it. sure, its a little plasticy on the interior, but hey, for 3000, ill take it.

and yeah, ive made mods, but there is a difference between mods, and style. no wings, no lights, no body kit, no aftermarket rims (though a set of 16 inch five spokes wouldnt be bad) no funny colors or stupid stickers. i even considered sanding the beast down and spray painting it flat black just so it would be less the ricer.

and ill be the first to admit my 4 banger b21a isnt the fastest engine in the world, but ive shown my tailights to more than my fair share of v-6 camaros and mustangs pulling up on me because they think their car is fast simply because of the name on the bumper.

its not the car that is hated, its the additude of the driver. car pride is one thing (i'll defend my car against any insult or attack) but car stupidity is another (no, your civic does NOT need a 4 foot wing on the back...indy cars dont have wings that big)

I don't dislike hondas.They are very economical cars. I'm just curious.You bought the car for $3000.00.How much would it cost to make it really fast???

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

define really fast.

i have no trouble defeating other NA four bangers and many NA 6's. even beat a v8 once (dodge truck, on the highway, no big deal)

all this with only (quick estimate) $350 dollars worth of intake, headers, and exhaust work.

plenty fast for me.

but if you mean to make it run 12's or 11's....jesus man, we're looking at another 5-6 grand for the h22a swap, then another 3 grand for the turbo kit, a grand or so in suspension upgrades.....etc etc etc

point being about 3500 down the road ive got a quick car, that still gets 35 miles to the gallon (in the city no less) and IMHO looks pretty nice (please note, it is still BONE STOCK in appearance, if you dont notice the flowmaster muffler, which most people dont.)

sure, it wont outrun a GS-T, but im only 19 and still in college. ive got awhile to go. lord knows i wont be driving this car all my life.

A Turbo H22 still gets 35 mpg, think you'd better check on that!

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

I can see why people hate Hondas. First of all, Hondas are imports that are affordable and popular among teens. Younger people tend to "sup" up these cars becasue their cheap and look "cool." Second they are the most stolen cars in the United States. Personally, I think Hondas are OK. But what I hate about them is that people think that their little "rice rocket" can outrun a Ferrari or Lamborghini. A while back, Some guy in his Civic was saying shit that his Civic can eat my Subaru. Turns out I beat him easily.
