After 8 years in the making, the JDMYard DC5 finally made its racetrack debut in 2013. Here it is parked at JDMYard Honda Showoff 2013 in all of its glory.
I came across this ED Civic at last year’s Garage 88 Christmas BBQ meet and couldn’t help myself from checking it out a little closer. I found it sitting at one end of the meet, away from any other cars and parked quietly in an empty area, but on closer inspection it turned out to be a real gem. The simple additions really add character to what would otherwise be “just another Civic”. A steering wheel boss kit with a Nardi Deep Corn steering wheel and a Broadway mirror and tsurikawa furnish the interior whilst the SiR-inspired paintwork, Mugen CF-48s and a front lip and rear spoiler finish off the exterior. I wouldn’t change a single thing about it; not even its imperfections. To me, this is how a Civic should be done. Pure 90s fashion. Enjoy!
2013 has been another great year, with many lows but also many highs. I might not have gone out to shoot as much as I would have liked in this past year, but I know that along the way I’ve met a lot of amazing people and made some great new friends, all the while continuously growing in my photography and in life. I’d like to extend a sincere ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has supported me and helped push me to greater heights in 2013.
