Of course you do.
For those who don’t know, the owner of this magnificent CRX is Wayne Denman.

However, the car was lost in 2004 in an accident. (Thank the heavens he walked away alive!)

 He ended up selling the car in 2007.
We all have seen situations like that before…

Then one day out of the blue they get that itch to build another…!

The USDM style seen on his DC2 comes from his love for the American culture. He installed EG6 hubs so he can use the 4×100 lug pattern, reflecting a common style seen here in the states; a clean Honda lowered on OEM wheels.

Tomohiro isn’t just into styling a car to make it look pretty. Before owning his DC2, he also had a B18C powered EG6 which he attended many race events with. Once a gear-head, always a gear-head!

End of an era

1015342823

“A car with a massive amount of history. Purchased from my mom in 1997ish as my first car. Was just a first car too get me to and from work and to bike races. Years later I got into Autocross racing. Earned a FSP National Championship win. Two time SMF B.C Champion, and the car ran up the iconic Knox Mtn Hill Climb 4 times. Fastest time was a 1:59 up Knox. Lots of track days in the car traveling long nights beating the piss out of it. Almost killing my self once LOL and still making it home for work the next day.

The list goes on… so much time so much money… it was a blast !!!!! The only way the car was cool and fun was the knowledge of the builder and the fabricator that help with my journeys with the car.

Special thanks to Justin for all the help over the years with last minute shit, parts, and countless exhaust fab’d up and shit like that lol. Huge thanks also for teaching me a shit load of skills at JBDR. It was a good run and man we made some cool stuff. RIP Team Limit Boys, Ryan Cali, Dave Mann, Ryan Watson, Ryan Lorke, Greg Anderson, Nick Kirkley, Jaime MacDonald, Sead Causevic, Tyson Kaempffer and the Sherrif for support at races and I hope you keep racing your cars.

Many who know me well will know I loved to drive my car more than anyone I knew in the car scene. Burning up back roads at night when you could get away with it…

I wouldn’t say I lost the love of driving it, but more the time and money I had to invest to keep it going. With race tracks so far away the stress of making it home in one piece was way to much. I’m back into MTB racing and somehow have become more addicted to this than anything else the past couple years. Going faster than I ever have at the age of 36 feeling good about riding my bike again. I met a lot of cool people along the way and I will still be in the scene verbally abusing dumb kids with my vast knowledge and telling them how to correctly setup a Honda.

 What I like about Shane is that he’s straight forward; when given car advice, he doesn’t sugar coat anything. In example, like how he talks shit about my stock wheels… LOL peace!

PVT Runner V. Dabis Jr.

Rothmans Group A Rally PVT Civic

pvt_vdj01

No members of the Private Runners own a show car. If we decide to show our cars at an event, it will act more as a display to show what we are about. PVT member V. Dabis Jr did just that. Before the event; the night prior, he took his Civic out for some good ol’ rally fun, leaving it dirty for the show.

pvt_vdj02 pvt_vdj03 pvt_vdj04

Not being much of a car show person, he left his car on display and went ice skating for most of the time of the show. When he returned to the event he was granted with the trophy for best engineering.

Congratulations brother!
