When you think of a show car, Honda models don’t exactly come to mind…unless you’re a Honda enthusiast. The expansion of models at general car shows and a change in attitude has lead to greater acceptance of less traditional models at car shows — expect to see more econo class show cars at more than just model specific events. However, even though the models are changing, the markers of a good show car remain the same — don’t expect that to ever change. So, what exactly is a show worthy Honda?
Regardless of who made it, a show car must be clean, that’s a non-negotiable. That means the outside should be pristine…
…the interior should be well cared for…
…and nothing (dirt, debris, messy wiring) should draw attention from the powertrain in the engine bay.
Beyond being a very clean car, a show Honda can be classified in many different ways.
Many Honda enthusiasts appreciate highly custom builds.
A great example of the customizations you might see on show Hondas is this vehicle with vinyl wrapping, ground effects pieces, and aftermarket wheels.
This custom hood/ode to Marilyn Monroe is another example of the highly custom appearance modifications that catch attention at car shows.
Other show cars are modified for speed and display those types of customizations proudly.
Then there’s the show cars with more subtle appearance customizations, such as this Honda with a very stunning carbon fiber hood.
This S2000 with custom wheels and engine bay covers catches eyes without an elaborate overhaul.
Another great marker of a show car of any make is a model that has a large following.
One that’s a hit amongst drivers and enthusiasts in any form.
Cars that represent the best of the brand…
…and even those which represent the most popular generations of cars amongst the enthusiasts.
In other’s definitions, a show car is a dream car or something made specifically for public display, but many people believe a show car is simply something that turns heads for any number of reasons, and Honda show cars are no different.
