Most of you should know this car by know, in my eyes its one of the best EG6s this country has ever seen, with its unique front end conversion from a DC2 to its brown paint job which was unheard of in Ireland when car was sprayed, sparking others to go down a similar route. The car has always been progressing towards the perfect car, daily driven on some of the most horrible roads in Ireland and sitting low enough to look amazing, I have nothing but respect for Jackie and his quest to build his ultimate Civic. Wr put this video together, just to showcase how it looks at present, but believe me this will just keep evolving and help push the car scene in the right direction.
The phrase “from rags to riches” was the last thing I wanted to call this feature, but the more Peter told me the story I couldn’t believe how the car had turned out. Eventually I realised after trying to come up with something a little bit more imaginative, this car truly earned the title. The common build we see in the United States of a bog standard civic being converted into a flawless masterpiece in both the exterior and interior is really something that has only started to come around over here in Ireland over the last few years.
So last sunday brought another Honda meet up in Portlaoise in the carpark at Midway court, the good thing about Midway court is it has a subway and is very central for everyone from all different counties to make the trip. I know your wondering about the picture above also, we managed to get stuck in a High nellie world record on the way up, which was extremely amusing to say the least.I really had no idea there was that many High nellie’s left not to mention useable! I’m sure they bet the record as there really wouldnt be any comparison!
It has to be said that Japfest 2011 was such a good day, not because team need for speed came to town… which don’t get me wrong was a good part of it too, the amount of people and cars that showed up was really something. It just goes to show that the scene is still holding it down regardless of this economic bullshit. Everyone should give themselves a pat on the back for effort. The car park usually has just as much interesting machines as the show your attending, that’s why here at Juicebox we love lurking the car park to see what the people are driving.
We decided to take a trip to Portlaoise, its usually the best place for everyone to meet as its a pretty central part of Ireland to get people to show up. The biggest problem it seems these days when it comes to car meet’s is a decent turn up. What was good about this meet was even though there wasnt a crazy turnout the quality of some of the cars that showed up was awesome.
This EG6 has definitely come along way since the day it was purchased at the Primo dealership in Japan. Most of these changes have happened in the last 3 years when Someone with an idea to go against the norm and try something different got their hands on it. The car started it life out as a Blue EG6 SIR, at the time of purchase Jackie had already intended to do this front end change. I know what your thinking about the title, I’m sure your thinking of that film with Nicholas Cage and John Travolta trading faces and all that jazz. Despite the title usually being associated to the Action Flick, it has taken on a whole new meaning in my eyes when it comes to a car like this.
Everybody in the Honda scene pretty much knows this car, it has caused quite the stir amongst people over the last year. This Friday we will have a full feature on this amazing Honda.
A very tidy EG on some Sprint hart CPR’s aye? But that’s not the best part, whats really interesting is the fact that the car has been themed to look American (USDM) but is in Japan. The trends have made a full circle and have filtered back across the Pacific. (more…)
Some cars leave a real impact on you. I remember the first time I seen this car. It was a dark choppy winters night. It was parked amongst a nice collection of Honda’s just by the port road in Waterford. The car just bounced against the cold winter night. The second I got close to this car I realized how serious this little EG actually was. I was totally shocked by this setup because there is always so much internet hype about the parts that grace this car and the whole Spoon EG itself. More>>>
Alot of you may have seen jackies eg6sir/dc2 front conversion, and how well done it was compared to many. He has decided to take it a step further which by all means is a good thing. Im going to try and get as many updates or pics of this if i can as it goes on. Getting pictures from people is hard haha. Heres what i got so far and its looking tasty.
Stripped out and naked
I found these on my old pc thought they were gone. These i think were supposed to go in MIJ but never happened and i had stored them away. Here they are well the best ones. I was surprised to see that there was so many decent cars at that meet. Really, people had stepped it up and it seems the scene of buddy club and wings west body kitted smooth mobiles like these warriors with the delicious wolfrace katanas and the colour coded interior with them lovely f.u.k badges is becoming more of a rarity day by day.
Some nice cars out being cars at 3am. Cant get enough of the k20 powered eg6 with the spoon calipers. Check back for more pics of the eg6 soon and some more.
This shit is too nice to even use. When you go that far its kind of scary. In a good way though.
Every one knows about this car by now and if you dont well you do now. Its perfect but the funny thing is it will probably change again..
Its definitely fashion over function but still works so well.
Hey. The sites up. its simple and stuff and kind of blank for now. I’m just going to start chucking stuff up each day so be sure to check back.
Ive got some pics up on my computer from the last year that i am going to stick here of track days events etc.
Here’s a few from a track day in Mondello in 09
Abit old i know.. but i didnt get a chance to put the pics up anywhere or some of the video. i dont have much because most of the pictures got deleted somehow. Thanks fuck some of the more decent ones didnt.
This is the dodgiest quarter mile ever. The inside of a horse racing track. Here are some times filmed on the day. Just a few before i got bored.
Monster is just too much for bees.
Jackie’s eg6 slash dc two. Which is currently being turned into something else stay tuned for updates on that….
Mad racing stall with Toms old s14. Everything just looks better with some sun.
This was my fave of the whole day because its just cool as fuck.
This is turning into such a nice car. This is how it should be done.
