PA Meat: 2013


Well in case you haven’t noticed its been a bit of time since I’ve posted anything. Since the closing of Honda Tuning my automotive photography kind of took a back seat and I’ve had no motivation to pick up my camera to shoot. Even after getting a new car (a year ago almost!) and having something new to shoot, I haven’t. Besides not shooting, I’m sitting on a back log of stuff that was never released, but I think it’s time I changed that.

 

So today I give you the last PA meet to happen back in 2013, which was the 9th annual one. It was one of my last items in Honda Tuning and now here’s the rest. The PA meet has always had two aspects to it. The first was the actual meet part, hosted by Derek at Innovative MotorWorks. The second half was the meat part, a BBQ with tons of meat, at a local’s house. This year Jon D graciously hosted everyone. As rumor spread that it was going to be the last one, confirmed attendance went up and a lot of old owners even showed up.

And in case you missed it, here’s the original Honda Tuning article.

anselms_m3

Over the years former Honda owners almost always upgrade to something more refined and Anselm was no different as you can see here with his M3.

Steve and Nate chatting it up.

Bernie picked up an NSX and surprised a lot of us with it. The Iroc-Z stickers were there just for the meet as a stab at Steve and his former NSX.

derek_dynoing

It wouldn’t be an official PA meet without finding out something is wrong with my car. We tossed it on the dyno only to find out my clutch was slipping. Fast forward a couple of weeks later and after swapping the clutch and final driver the B blew. And well now K is the way.

installing_rollbar

These two pictures are a bit out of order. I brought that roll bar from Long Island for them as it fit easier in the hatch of my R better than Anselm’s M3 sedan. They decided to install it that night. I think when I finally crashed back at my hotel later that night, they were still out there working on getting it in.
