Eibach has a history in the Motorsports world, competing at various world-wide known events and manufacturing top-of-the-line performance springs for various vehicles. But also, they are known for one more thing here in Southern California; the biggest Honda meet, known as Eibach's Open House. Last Sunday was Eibach's 7th year, opening the warehouse for a meet and greet for Honda's only. If you don't drive a Honda, expect to park a mile away because this place gets pretty insane with overflowing spectators, vendors, and highly modified Honda's.
As most of you guys know by now, it's been a pretty hectic weekend here in SoCal; Toyotafest and Bimmerfest on Saturday and Eibach's Open House and Rotiform's Open House on Sunday. For some reason, the major events were packed all in two days and covering all of this was enjoyable but tiring at the same time.
The gloomy weather helped out a lot during Saturday because of hours of walking and taking photos, but on the day of Eibach's Open House, it was constantly raining till afternoon. This event is known for cop problems, and driving a modified car near the HQ takes guts. To avoid this situation, I parked pretty far and walked about 10 minutes in the rain. Result? I got drenched in rain.
This was my first time coming to this event and I had no clue what places were open to the public. Luckily, part of the warehouse was opened and I quickly went inside to dry myself up before taking photos.
There was an EG and an exotic S2K being worked on, but I didn't get a chance to take detailed photos.
Right next to this warehouse was another one with all the vendors and top cars. The place was really packed, so please understand the non-wide angle photos.
Trendy Threadz were in the house and I'm sure they got a lot of sales.

Went back into the building because of the rain and took this shot. I didn't know the cars were parked around the warehouse. More shooting!

Great job on this Prelude.
Personally my favorite shot of the day.
As mentioned earlier, the sun came out around 12pm. I had to leave to check out Rotiform's Open House but because I wanted to take better shots of some cars and cover the rest of the showcase area, I walked another round.
I remember seeing this ride on a blog..not too sure where.
I'm digging the meaty tire look these days.

Not too sure if those wheels were true CP-R's because I've never seen one with a crazy lip.

Had a great time covering this event for our site. There were a few cops around the area ticketing tons of cars and from what I've heard, there was an Integra that got towed. Hope the owner solved out the situation. More info at The Chronicles.
Have a great day guys! One more event coverage coming up this week!
