I previewed Honda Day a few weeks ago, and today I've got some photos from the event. Lots to look at.

First, I'd like to direct your attention to some awesome air intakes. As you can imagine, providing a fire-breathing turbocharged engine with adequate breathing is a challenge. Some have responded to this challenge by replacing headlights with intakes:

While others have gone with something a bit more radical:

It's important to note that the vehicles shown are drag cars, as these types of modifications typically aren't done on a street-legal vehicle.

Here's something you might see on a "normal" Honda - a short air intake with an after-market filter (not that this is really normal...but you get the idea):

Next, let's take a look at some dressed-up engine bays, starting with a bay that's "stupid fresh":

Painted and decorated valve covers can really make a big visual difference on a smaller motor, as witnessed by these two bays:

Now let's check out some stanced Hondas that would make the guys over at Stance Nation swoon:

Finally, the obligatory picture of the Honda Day girls.

For more photos from Honda Day 2013, check out the Honda day photos page on HondaPartsOnline.net (they provided all these photos, btw, so be sure to check them out if you're a Honda owner).

Also, anyone make it out to Atco the weekend before last?

    For the non-Honda owners such as myself, what's the largest appeal of the Honda brand? What would entice me to switch?

    I can definitely tell you what their appeal is! Like jlancaster just said, the 90s ones, like my Civic feel 10 years advanced for their time! I have friends who drive Ford Contours and even one with a 1999 Corolla that don't even have remotes or alarms. The design is incredibly sleek and handling has got to be the biggest part; being able to go into a corner blazing and have little wheel spin is an incredibly satisfying feeling. Being light weight, having decent horsepower, an amazing fuel economy, and great looks is a formula for satisfaction and that is what a Honda will do for you.

    "Sleek" is a really good descriptor...I agree completely.

    I think it's design - Honda's aren't necessarily blazing fast, and they're not really luxurious, but they're very well-made.

    I guess I'd say the appeal of a Honda is like the appeal of a nice set of tools - you can buy a set of cheap wrenches that will get the job done, or you can buy some beautiful wrenches that are perfectly carved. When I jump in a Honda - especially a 90's era Honda - it feels like they were 10 years ahead of the industry in terms of fit, finish, and efficient design.

    Today, however, the appeal is a bit diminished...I think Honda has slowed down while their competitors have closed a lot of distance. Not saying I don't like Hondas (I like almost all vehicles in all honesty), but I don't think they're as special as they used to be.
