KING

Have many of you heard of this manga?

It’s been a few years since I first did.

Written between 2002 and 2004 by  Keiichiro Shinmura, KING only has 2 volumes.

The story is about a CRX driven by a schoolteacher. This is no ordinary CRX, though. The CRX that stars in this manga is a Mugen widebody-kitted, SSR MK-2 equipped, Subaru Impreza mounted rear-engined street racing machine. 

For those of you who enjoy diecast cars, specifically Hot Wheels, there are now 2 KING inspired CRXs available. A red and chrome one, and a new blue and grey version.

You can read the first volume in ENGLISH here:

Thank you so much to everyone who has followed this blog, reblogged a post or a picture, liked a picture, or shared the content in any way.

It warms my heart to see so many people enjoying the Honda content I post!

The automotive scene in general, especially in North America, looks down on the Honda name and the people who enjoy them. Every picture I post is hand picked from my vast photo archive, and every image in my archive is of a vehicle that I personally admire. 

The hope is to inspire some of you to purchase a Honda, work on a Honda, perhaps race a Honda! To sway those who shun Hondas, and show them the joy these cars possess. 

I have many, many more images still to share, so stick around!
