Honda Havasu SUT spotted testing in Dallas

 Credibility Rating: 10


TOV member 'Closer2001' posted these photos in the TOV Forums last night and we received permission to repost them here. His 9-year-old son shot these pics from the back of his family's 2004 Honda Pilot. Special thanks to Closer2001's son - a TOV baseball cap is on its way.

Here's the story as posted by 'Closer2001' in our forums:

This is a bit humorous:

My wife and son were cruising down I-20 east of Dallas in our 04 Pilot RES when they ran up behind another Pilot sporting an " Ohio Manufacturer" tag. Lightly noting the presence of a "twin," they passed it and next surprisingly found themselves next behind an MDX sporting an "Ohio Manufacturer" tag as well. After the MDX too moved over, they found themselves staring at a lightly disguised 06 SUT!!! The casual atmosphere quickly changed as they brought out the digital camera. The SUT driver went into an immediate evasive mode, slowing from 75 to 40 instantly. The "Manufacturer" MDX and Pilot also quickly shielded the SUT from our Olympus camera's lens. Not to be deterred, my wife played cat and mouse for the better part of 20 miles with the SUT as my 9 year old gleefully snapped pictures from the back seat. Overall, I think he did a great job getting some outstanding detail pics of the upcoming Honda truck.

ENJOY!!!
