Reader Ride: Honda Fit

E-mail Print PDF
We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Kelby Spacely, a THMotorsports customer from The Bay State who is living out his dream of building a radical Honda that stands out from the crowd. But, then again, how many tuners do you know that have tackled the tiny Honda Fit? First launched in the subcompact field back in 2001 and now in its third generation, the small car with the ability to pack a surprisingly large payload was first launched in Japan where it immediately won the Car of The Year Japan award. So, take a moment to see what Kelby has done to his Fit in order to transform it into a ride that stands out from the crowd!

Q:  How long have you owned your 2014 Honda Fit?
I have owned my Fit for one year this month.

Q:  What did you drive before this?
Before purchasing my Fit, I drove a 2010 Toyota Corolla. Before that I owned a 2004 Honda Civic. And, before that I drove a 1994 Honda Accord.

Q:  What led you to build this car?
I had wanted to get into the Honda game in a big way for a long time. But, I wanted to drive something that was unique...Something that not a lot of other people would own. So, after doing some research I decided that the Honda Fit was the perfect car for me. You might even say that this car was just a good fit...

Q:  How did you become aware of THMotorsports?
I found THMotorsports while surfing the web for affordable performance parts for my car.

Q:  What was your goal while building this car?
My goal with this build was simply to build a show car that I could enter at all the local events while still having a car with a little added performance.

Q:  What problems did you face while building this car?
Believe it or not, I haven't had any real problems during this build. Working at Honda was a big plus since the techs I work with were always willing to help out and share the knowledge I needed to work on this car. It also helped that I have a lot of friends that were willing to help me work on the car.

Q: What are your future plans for your car?

I still want to complete a K-series swap 
Q: How long have you been into tuning cars?
Believe it or not, I really wasn't all that into working on cars until I started doing it for a living. So, only for about two years.

Q: What is your favorite thing about this car?
I love the suspension and the wheels on my Fit. 

Q: What was your most memorable experience in this car?
For me, it's all about cruising with my friends and showing off our cars.
