Nasty NSX

So if you don’t know who Mike is, you probably have seen a few of his cars in the past. His current car is a Formula Red 1992 Acura NSX. You can catch a glimpse of his nasty NSX at the local car meet or showcased in the SMG Hawaii booth. Mike has started his journey into modified cars with a Honda EF. After he was done with that, he moved on to an EG, then a CRX, an Integra, a few S2000s and finally is current project is this NSX. As you can see, Mike has come a long way in his modifications. You could say that he “Started from the Bottom”. We at Racesauce decided to feature this car because of what it meant to us and the Hawaii import car scene. Not only is it a stanced vehicle, it is still driven hard out on the streets. Still a work in progress, in it’s current configuration, you can see that there was a lot of time and parts put in.
