Allow us to introduce you to Scott Miyata’s Honda Accord. Purchased brand spanking new in 1994, it has stayed in the family ever since. Throughout the years it has undergone quite a few different stages, but all that changed when he met Samson Mak from Revision Audio. For those who aren’t familiar with Samson, let’s just say that he plays a huge roll in the Hawaiian automotive scene, especially the VIP side of it. Scott has an idea of what he wanted to do to with the the car and with the help of Samson, things started to slowly come together. The end results are a mixture of JDM and VIP style, and a touch of what Scott likes to call “Tsuraichi”. We’re talking lip to lip action here! Take a look at these awesome pictures below taken by our photographer Emil Corpuz.

We’ll have the full mod list at the very bottom of this post for you, but we’ll run through some of the most notable stuff with you. This 17 year old Honda Accord is laid out on JDM Air Runner Suspension kit (bolt-on kit from Japan with dampening), and we mean laid out. If it wasn’t for those big 18″ wheels, it’s frame would probably be sitting on the ground. It’s obvious though that Scott’s intent was never for the frame to sit on the ground, but rather sit on the lips of his sick & unique wheels.

You’re probably wondering what’s so unique about the wheels right? Well, we’re told that those SSR VF1’s are the only ones stateside in the SBC (super black coat) finish. Front wheels are 18×9″ and rears are 18×10″, and if you’re not impressed with their width, it’s not a problem. You should know that it’s all about the offsets! Front tires are 215/35/18 and rears are 225/35/18 Federals. Check out more photos and specs by clicking the Read More button below.

Up front you’ll recognize the Greddy valance while rear and sides are from Wings West. V.I.S took care of the CF hood and trunk, and for the CF gas door, Scott went with the JDM OEM Honda Carbon Fiber one. Also, almost all of the exterior lighting was swapped with those from JDM OEM Accord.

Under the hood it gets even better. A 2000 Honda Prelude (H22a4 ) swap, with matching 5 speed transmission (converted from Auto). Apexi WS2 fully stainless cat-back Exhaust System, Exedy stage 1 clutch, Type S pistons & rods, and Type S valve springs and retainers were also added. Those are just a few of many other things. Scroll down to read the full list.

As you see in the picture above, the interior is far from stock. Up front Scott got himself a pair of JDM OEM Euro-R Recaro racing seats and Takata 4 point seat belt Harnesses. You’ll also notice A pair of Authentic Recaro Pillows (super autobacs) in the backseat. Trust us, there is a lot more to it, just scroll down! Big thanks to Scott and Emil for making this shoot/feature happen!
