just plain classic miata, these cars are soo rapidly becoming classics and have quickly become the go to car for the budget sports car, replacing the ae86′s which are now either over priced or destroyed by “drifters”.
I installed new struts and lowered my odyssey a bit (1.5″) and it’s 100x better driver than it was before.
but this is not mine.
Ok so you all know I have a thing for vans..esp japanese vip styled vans. but I have always hated newer modified north american spec odysseys …. but i like this one (I know it’s not in the vip style, more sport)….. but do i like it because it’s nice or because it’s nicer then the rest I’ve seen…. I’m not sure.
so I sold the corolla ae86 and the 02 crv and I got a 98 odyssey, its basically an accords wagon but taller, funny thing is that it’s the exact same length as an accord and only 200lbs heavier…. which is pretty great for a mini van
anyways.. no pics of mine yet …but here’s some inspiration.
with the bbs rs wheels and the rare oem fog lights
ok soooo some of you dig the vans and some of you hate the vans… but either way here’s more vans.
a bit of history first… in 1995 honda released it’s first odyssey van and it was a good van, but it was unconventional, it had 4 normal doors, all 4 doors had window’s that rolled down, it only had a 4 cylinder engine, and it wasn’t as wide, tall, or as long as much of the competition…. but there is good in this.
the new van only weighted 200lbs more then the accord(1995) and because of that it handled very well like the accord, stopped well, and also got good gas milage like the accord….. but north america didn’t like it that much and so the next version in 1999 followed suit of the rest of the pack, and gained ~700lbs!!!
so for some of us the 1st generation was the best mix between a sedan and a full sized “mini” van, but in japan the original style carried on still under the odyssey name, they 2nd gen was basically the same as the first with minor styling updates, but the 3rd gen was all new and received the newer K series 4 cylinder motors(2.4L with 160 or 200hp)
since i showed some pics of the first gen ody’s here in a recent post , I’ll just show modified 2nd and 3rd gens here.
kinda bonkers stuff, I know, but if your not having fun… then what’s the point
2nd gen ody’s
and here’s more of the 3rd gen ody, which had it’s roofline trimmed down compared to pervious versions.
a few suggestions from the comments on my last post made me wanna make another post. Someone suggested I get a mazda 6, great idea and a good car… but I would seriously modd that, also some interest was shown in the accord wagons and odyssey area as well.
I’ll start with the Mazda 6, these are cool cars with great suspension and decent motors altho a little thirsty in fuel department… but whatever. but with a little suspension work and some wheels…..
this white one is totally stock…. the wheels are original mazda 6 wheels, it’s just lowered.
The accord wagons on the other hand are just as cool and wayyy cheaper.
I’ll admit i can only find one decent pic of a 1st get odyssey and it’s not that great but this is it. (I’ll keep looking for a better one)
found more ody pics.
this one is my favourite… never mind those lame scissor doors tho… i wish i could find a better pic of this one.
