Hooniverse Weekend Edition: The Mercedes-Benz of Hondas


Starting off on another Hooniverse Weekend, I thought I would open with a reader submission from Texan_Idiot (Thanks Man!). It is a tragedy that someone would take a perfectly good 1994 Honda Prelude and perform this type of cosmetic surgery.


According to the listing, this guy spent over 10 grand on the conversion, including the ever repulsive “Lambo” doors. Here is the wording directly from the ad, spelling errors and all:

94 HONDA PRELUDE H22 TO S500 MERSEDES
I transform the outside look to the new S500 Mercedes with GT factory lambo door.
under hood: AEM cold air intake and AEM pulley, DC sport header, strut bar, oil cap.
Inside car: custom black and red leather seat, custom Mercedes shift knob,
carbon fiber dash trim, Kenwood DVD head unit with 6.5 Boston component with tweeter.
In trunk: custom speaker box wrap with black and red leather with One 12′ W6 V2 ,
2 JL amp run the mid and sub. Suspension: blue tokiko strut with ground control coilover
and a complete greedy Evol 2 cat-back exhaust system,
car run on a set of 18′ american racing (casino) chrome wheel with Bridestone tires RE950 225/40R18.
I spend $10K for the S500 Mercedes and the lambo door conversion.
Head light from Germany $1000, taillight USA dealer $500,
bought GT factory lambo door kit at SEMA show in Vegas 3 year ago $500.
Labor for lambo door $2000, labor for S500 Mercedes head lights and taillights conversion $6000 including paint the car.
Must see to appreciate!!! reduced price!!!

So I have to ask, would a stock 1994 Prelude actually bring in more money? Let’s here your opinion. Go here to see the listing for yourself…

    Dude, fucking get a real Benz. This is sad! It's like a sheep in wolfs' clothing.
