Terry Huang’s 2000 Acura Integra Type R

Calgary has been getting some nice weather lately which means toys are out early! First shoot of the year and I think it went pretty well. Terry messaged me asking if I could snap a few photos before he lets it go to the new owner, and of course I said yes. Who wouldn’t want to shoot this beauty?

Terry has owned this car for a while now and decided it’s time to part ways. I know he’ll miss this car but I also know Terry has had his fair share with it. He’s taken it to the track, he’s been to shows and he has cruised around the city. His ITR is in incredible condition despite it being a 17 year old car and actually driven. The car is fairly stock, how an ITR should be, with the exception of some tasteful upgrades from Mugen, Spoon Sports and Ray’s Engineering. Enjoy!

Shane’s 1988 Honda Prelude Si 4WS Coupe

Some of the local Honda fan boys might recognize this car from a build thread posted about 4 years ago on Beyond. If not, here is the link: http://forums.beyond.ca/showthread/t-364897.html

I think a lot of us were extremely excited when Shane began that thread… A mint BA4, a car that you don’t see too often, being modded with the highest quality of parts with an aggressive functional vision in mind. But as everyone knows, sometimes life gets busy and sometimes things get pushed aside… So the build was put on hold.

Fast forward to now and Shane finally decides to put in work! He’s not sure if he’s going to continue updating the build thread but I will try my best to document it as long as he’s cool with it.

There is still a lot of work to be done but so much potential…

He is currently prepping the engine bay and interior for paint. Don’t mind the tires he is currently running… I’m pretty sure those are winter tires up front haha but he’s just testing sizes for now.

Love me some reverse stagger.

Chopped and pulled fenders. They’re barely bolted on in the right position here but it will look killer when it’s all done.

Sheepey built manifold. I believe he’s still deciding which turbo to run.

And one last photo with the 50mm.

I hope this give’s Shane some motivation to finish the build and hopefully I can continue documenting it. Cheers!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I started going back through my archives to see if there’s any photos I’ve missed that are worth posting. I found a couple so far, I may post more randomly through out the winter…

31337142033_7734681e32_h

This was during a random shoot at a church just before a thunderstorm was going to hit. The rear quarter panel shot has to be my favourite angle of the car, the reverse stagger just looks so good!

Josh’s EG with everything Spoon Sports… Still one of my favourite local Hondas right now. I’m not sure how I never put this photo up in the original post but here it is!

Hope you all had a great 2016! All the best in the new year.

Philip Thi’s 1997 Integra Type R

The Honda guys got together for some bubble tea the other day. Prior to this, I asked Philip if I could try shooting his car before he stores it for the winter. His plates expire in a couple of days so we agreed to try shooting the car before bubble tea, which left me about an hour before sun set. This is my first “shoot” so I’m not really sure what I’m doing but damn am I ever learning lots! And that’s all I can ask for..

The first one to arrive was Josh with his clean K swapped Spoon Sports themed EG6. Philip didn’t arrive yet so mind as well snap a few photos while we wait right? Haha

Has to be one of my favourite local Honda builds right now.. Spoon everything.

I forgot to take an engine bay shot or interior shot because I was just mesmerized.. Next time.

Next one to show up was Alex with his K swapped EM1 track/show car. Philip hasn’t arrived yet so mind as well shoot this car too!

This car is every Honda fan boy’s dream.

I was lucky enough to have such nice Hondas to practice shooting with.. Hopefully I can continue shooting them and other clean ass builds!
