Southeastern Wisconsin is lucky enough to be home to one of the greatest Honda tuning shops in the country, King Motorsports. They are a world renowned Honda tuning shop that have competed around the globe in different racing series, have had multiple cars featured in magazines, and built a name for themselves not only with their own personal shop cars, but also with high quality and well built customer cars. Every year they hold an open dyno day that draws a huge crowd from the Milwaukee area. This year was no exception and some beautiful cars came out despite the wet weather.
I have been going the past 3 years and this year was as enjoyable as always. Unfortunately the cars end up being packed quite tightly so photo opportunities are slightly more difficult than at other shows, but being able to see cars on the dyno is always a plus. I arrived a little while after Brandon, and he had already been snapping quite a few photos, so I only snapped a few photos and left the majority of the coverage to him.
Walking into the show requires you to park down a long street and then follow the row of cars into the show. There are always a number of really cool cars parked along the side of the road.
It is always a pleasure to see clean NSX’s around. To think that these cars came out in the early 90’s, and the styling still turns heads 20 years later is a testament to their timeless beauty.
Over the past few years, there seems to have been a big swing in the Honda community towards more track inspired cars. I am happy to see high quality Honda’s still being built as the community grows around the newer makes and models.
It is always a pleasure to see a Galant VR4 around, especially in this good of condition. This is one of the nicer ones I have seen around the area in the past few years. I spent quite a bit of time admiring this since I am a DSMer at heart.
One of the coolest things about the past few years, is seeing that people are really taking to the culture and getting the kids more involved. As many in this scene are getting to the age where they are having kids and getting married, they are making sure their kids are enjoying the day just as much as they are.
King always has a fantastic showing of their shop cars inside, and this year was no exception.
This NSX garnered a lot of attention throughout the day. It just recently underwent some new aero pieces, and was looking as georgeous as ever. This car was parked next to our booth at the Wisconsin Modified car show in the Wisconsin Dells this past spring during Automotion.
I was very impressed with this car. I love the in your face color, the wheel choice, and the license plate. This looks like a perfect daily.
Not to often you see a supercharged RSX!
You may recognize Jeremy’s Boosted S2k from one of our first featured car articles!
And speaking of featured cars, we also ran in TJ with his 650+whp MKIV Supra! For the link to his feature car story, CLICK HERE.
Besides Jeremy’s S2000, there were a number of other beautiful examples of well done S2K’s around the show.
