Owner: John Little John
Car: 1998 Acura Integra LS
Club Affiliation: Menace 2 Society

HAFADAZE! Very much like Jimmy Mendoza is known in the local Nissan game, John Little John’s name is just as spoken about in the Honda crowds. When he isn’t working selling copious amounts of overpriced brand name goods to tourists in Tumon, you can find him putting in work on one of his many Hondas.

John has owned a list of Hondas longer than the number of potholes you can find on Bello Road. Where did his laser RED 97 LSVTEC’ed Integra go? Sold. That bright YELLOW 91 Integra? Wheeled and dealed. How about his 97 papaya GREEN Civic Hatch? Painted and sold. This guy can open his own used car lot…. and red, yellow, green? Bob Marley would be proud of you prim! One love! In all seriousness, I hope that he stays with this 1998 Acura Integra LS, because it is definitely a keeper.

When John originally purchased this Integra last year, it came with a bunch of JDM ITR exterior pieces including the front conversion, wing, sidemarkers, and emblems. The car looked fresh as it was, but John just had to give it a brand new look. He turned to Mike’s Autoworks for the BMW Laguna Seca blue paintjob and added simple touches like OEM mud flaps and the Datum 1 tow hook to finish off the exterior.

John followed the ITR theme in the interior, installing a set of JDM Recaro SRD seats to match the ITR ’98 Spec SRS steering wheel, gauge cluster, shift knob, climate control, cigarette/coin dispenser, cup holder, dust pan, and walis ting ting. He rolls the streets of Liguan Terrace on a set of Function & Form Type 1 coilovers with 16” Volk TE37s matched with Muteki open lug nuts. Camber correction is provided in the front and rear by a Skunk 2 kit.

John originally purchased this Integra last year with a gem under the hood  – a 97’ Spec ITR B18C motor. The motor is pretty much stock with a bunch of bolt on mods including NGK wires and plugs, a Godspeed radiator, and an Apexi N1 exhaust system. The setup provides enough ‘oomph’ to go on a Sunday ride with his  wonderful wife and two boys.

Hopefully John will finally settle down and keep this ITR converted Integra. That way, all his friends will no longer have to keep flashing and saying wassup to those other cars he sold thinking it was him strolling in it.
