About “The Blown Banana”

Well this is the newest vehicle I have ever owned. I have been a car enthusiast for my entire life since i watched transformers cartoons when I was a kid.
Well now I do transform them. I help build and paint hot rods to honda's and do performance upgrades as well. I vowed to make this car my new every day driver and project.

The car came stock equipped with the G85 pkg. Thats Recaro racing seats, sound system, upgraded suspension that has been tweaked about 1in lower that stock, mild engine tuning. I bought it with the Injen cold air intake. Since then I had the bugs worked out of it. Cut the cat out and added straight pipe. New Maxxis tires taller and wider for handling. Tweaked the suspension, painted the headlights and added the Autobots emblem to the turn signals. Painted the rear taillights and side markers. Debadged the rear emblems. Installed a UV7I dvd entertainment system. Painted the interior trim peices the same color as the rims, along w/the dvd dash kit. Also installed a custom wire mesh grille in the front bumper and painted a ghosted SS in it.
