Carnival Yellow EG6

•January 12, 2011 • 2 Comments

I’ve been toying with the idea of trying to source an incredibly rare Carnival Yellow EG6. Arguably the rarest EG6 ever made, it had matching yellow tweed and was predominantly made as a Zenki-spec model.  The majority of Y-53 EG6’s were made in 91 and 92, before demand obviously tailed off and Honda barely made any Kouki versions. Sadly the Kouki versions didn’t have the yellow interior, but the standard black and red cloth with black plastics. Here is a beautiful example that was exported to America:

British Civic EF2 Restoration

•June 8, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Considering most of the blogs concerning Japanese cars either originate from Japan itself or the ever dominant USA I am going to try and showcase the best of British builders. This build is being documented on numerous websites, and whilst it is a fairly modest base to begin with (JDM import EF2 Civic) the level of restoration and detail is staggering. The final goal being a prisitine EF9 replica.

  

Power Sports/ DogFight Pro EG6: Central Circuit

PowerSports ridiculous EG6 at Central Circuit (Hyogo, Japan). I haven’t been able to find any stats on this car, but it seems to be able to keep up with the Amuse S2000 fairly well!

James and a Staffordshire Adventure

I finally picked her up on Monday, and wow, she is an absolute minter! The paint is flawless with only a couple of minor scratches marring it. The car has keyless entry (remote locking) and a number of other goodies I wasn’t expecting including a parking pole (well, just the button, the pole itself seems to have gone awol). The car pulls very smoothly and whilst it isn’t as torquey as I expected (it feels pretty similar to my old d16z6 at low revs) the engine feels so refined and not at all ‘raw’. The Zeals are, as expected, awesome. Having had a poke around I think I have ascertained that they are Function B6’s, although the spring rates don’t seem excessively high. They dealt with road expansion cracks etc very well, I stayed well clear of potholes though! Currently due to my chosen Sparco NS-II’s needing special wheel nuts, Tegiwa have lent me the Enkei’s for a little longer. Big shout out to Luke and Johnny for being totally helpful and great guys to boot. Here’s a couple of shots from the day:
