Well, we always knew we had the best fans EVER on our Facebook page, but our recent photo contest really proved it. Three Honda/Acura owners won prizes for sharing pictures of their cars with everyone they knew. And it just so happens that they are ALL women. Welcome to the girls club!
First prize went to Bethany Harvey. Bethany teamed up with Kevin Marques from the Herb Chambers Honda Seekonk Parts Department to build her current car, a 1999 Honda Civic SI, in Electron Blue Pearl, so she could “park with the boys” at car meets: “I didn’t want any girly colors, and we also chose an aggressive front end.” Bethany and her car meet friends dubbed themselves “Team Last Minute.” As she tells it, “It started as a dig from other people at the track or car shows, but we owned it, got stickers made, and decided it’s not such a bad thing. You never know when inspiration will hit.” Looks like it hit big on this one!
Second prize winner Ari Freitas has been into cars for 3 years. She sometimes works on the cars herself, with people helping her out. Having driven two Honda Civics, she knows her current car, a 2007 Acura TL in Royal Blue Pearl, is her favorite. “Acura is a luxury car, so everything is more expensive, but it’s worth it. I wanted to mod it because not a lot of people have done that,” says Ari. “The interior and the body lines of the 3rd generation TL are perfect.” We agree, Ari!
Jenny Hogan won third prize. She entered the contest late, so she didn’t think she had a chance. But she kept sharing the picture and her persistence paid off! Jenny loves Hondas because “The look and shape is good, and you can do a lot of customizing, the part options are endless.” Her 2013 Taffeta White Honda Civic offers her the perfect palette. “It’s a great basis for other colors and enhancements,” says Jenny. Hmm, we think so, too!
But don’t think for a minute that these girls are just about pretty colors and cute enhancements. Every one of them has personally modified their car, whether it’s designing the look, or choosing custom options, or working on parts installation. (Just ask Bethany about her parts list.) Girls have arrived on the car scene, and they’re not just here to stay, they’re here to win!
