    Those that have been around a while may remember the car thread we had going, and I posted my bubblegumbox in freshly featured in a 5 page spread in Honda Tuning magazine...


    Well...... Tommy Lee Byrd approached me about putting my bubblegumpile in his "Sleeper" book a while back. Book just came out. REALLY well done. If youre a fan of the "sleeper" concept... Definately a cool coffee table book.


    It is one of two Japanese cars in it and the only Honda in the book, and got a 3 page Spread. Also It got a perfect ten score on the sleeper scale LOL. Cant say enough about the job he did on the book AND article. VERY well done book ALOT of really dirty street raping machines in it. My tricky 10 second 4 door family hauler was definately in good comapny LOL. If you like that sort of thing, Its a really cool book, and not just because my junk made it in. Weird, I never would have thought my pile of bubblegum would be in 2 Magazines... Or Book or a magazine, or whatever... I just wanted it in Grown mens trembling nightmares LOL. boobshake

    Recognized a few from YellowBullet.com. LOL. jasonz

    Hardly a "bubblegumpile", defiantly a sleeper. And a quick one at that.

    Mr. Byrd has a good eye.

    Nicely done, if you don't already have one may I suggest a "baby on board" sign to top it off :D

    Wow, awesome car. You should post some better pics if you have some, those don't do it justice.

    Very cool.

    Did you fab your own turbo header? I've got a couple guys around here that have asked me to build them turbo manifolds for Hondas.

    Can you keep that thing quiet? Seems like that would be the hardest part of keeping the sleeper image going with a car like that.

    Ever put any thought into E85? I'm running 26# and 22 degrees of timing on my Buick GN with it and it runs great. Smells good too. :D

    Later,Sean

    Japanese & euro cars aren't much better. I had a turbo eclipse that cost a bundle to mod.
    Heres the current toy:
