Holiday Gift Ideas - 2003

With the holiday shopping season well underway, you might find yourself still looking for that perfect gift for the Honda enthusiast on your shopping list. Here are a few suggestions from the TOV that will hopefully make your shopping a little easier.


Video


Volume One of the new series of English-language Best Motoring Videos (VHS Only). The monthly editions of Japan's BestMotoring video magazine have been long time favorites of the TOV. Finally we can understand what those guys are saying!


BestMotoring International Volume 2 Featuring JDM Integra Type R. DVD Version to be released January 20, 2004. Other Hondas appearing include DC2 Type R, NSX Type S, Accord Euro R, Amuse S2000


BestMotoring International Volume 3 (VHS Only, English Subtitles). Honda content includes Civic Type R and NSX Type S


This one's a full-tilt 11000 rpm VTEC-fest, so it should appeal to all TOV fans. (VHS Only).


The crew at BestMotoring finally embraces state-of-the-art 90's technology with their first DVD release (DVD Only).


BestMotoring International Volume 6 (DVD Only). The 350Z is pitted against S2000, Boxster, Skyline GT-R, and M3. Also, 2 Liter VTEC Challenge (modified Accord Euro R, EK9 Civic, S2000), NA on the Run (Amuse S2000, others)


BestMotoring International Volume 7 - The Evo Strikes Back. Release Date: 20 Jan. 2004. While the main focus of this DVD is Mitsubishi's awesome Lancer Evolution, the AWD (WRX vs Evo) Tsukuba battle is quite entertaining. H-cars finally make an appearance in the fourth chapter of the DVD, battling it out in the Touge Showdown. Special Holiday Bonus: Preview Video Clip of the Phase Integra R on the Touge. Windows Media (4.8MB)
MPEG-1 (16.8MB)


BestMotoring International: Drift Bible. Release Date: 20 Jan. 2004. Check out BMI's take on drifting. All the cool kids are doing it these days.

Kids, don't try this stuff at home (or anywhere near me or my family). This "reality-based" video is entertaining in a juvenile sort of way. This video features amateur footage of all sorts of illegal activities, none of which we condone. (DVD or VHS)

This book is a must have for S2000 owners and admirers

The Audiotron remains a favorite techie toy of mine - it's easy enough for non-techies too!

For the enthusiast on your list who has everything! Great to have at the track for zipping between the pits, paddocks, parking, and spectating areas.
