HHO HHO HHO HHO

This stuff really works once you get ALL the bugs out.

(And with the snorkel on the front, I can even suck in all the unburnt fuel from other cars and run on nothing.)

Wish dad could see this!!

Now this is a very rare photo of what I believe is a Honda's proboscis. One would only find it tucked under the hood where it's protected.

The only other undocumented sighting reported was when another Honda was just about caught trying to feed from a Mayflower truck.

Very rare photo to see a Honda sticking it's proboscis out!

Woman to Toyota service manager "Then the brakes quite and the gas stuck and this thing popped out of the front!!"

Service manager "Lady thats just the ""fail safe, back to basics"" red rubber bumper we installed from that recall. It worked didn't it."

Woman "But it's embarrassing!!"

Service manager "Just bring it in. It only takes five minutes to retract it."

All the other little imports had smooth bonnets, but after a few thousand miles the blue two door began to notice that he was different somehow and was left out of most social activities. That is when he began to take up drifting.

Big air filter - Check

Even bigger tin can megaphone muffler - Check

The hot motor - no check

air filter + turbo = $1500.

tin can megaphone muffler = $250.

hot motor = $ priceless
