The Black Duo [Part 2]

In a world where ricers want to be tuners it has become difficult to tell these two styles apart. These two Hondas are prime examples of Cape cars, where its pure style and no rice. These cars have lots of time and money put into them to get them to where they are today. Adeeb’s civic is probably one of the best on the roads today. What started out as an ordinary civic is now an extra-ordinary car. Everything is done just right. The ideas and influences come from the land of the rising sun, yes none other than Japan. Although the Jap cultures have been influencing the market quite a lot lately, he has still managed to make the car stand out from the rest. This is the list of mods that were done to the car.

Onto Chads car. Well he went with a different approach to get his car to where it is today. Even though his mod list is not as extensive as Adeebs, what he has done still does the trick. Instead of just taking the Jap culture he decided to mix it up a bit with sum Euro stance.
