Jonny Couture: 1991 Honda CR-X

Jonny Couture has been into the car scene for as long as he could remember. When he was younger, his dad used to take him to the Barrett-Jackson auction for his birthday. "I was into American Muscle," mentions Couture, "and my first car was a 1966 Ford Mustang." He would lose to all of my friends (on the street) with their Hondas, and at the time he hated import cars. "After getting beaten, I got talked into getting rid of the Mustang for an import," remembers Couture.

The first import car that Couture built was a 2001 Acura Integra with a JDM B18C motor, boosted on 18 llbs and made 606 hp. "It was love at first drive," states Couture. "I started adding more bolt-ons, and eventually started beating V6/V8 powered cars with my 4-cylinder."

To this day, he and his father disagree over which car is better.

Couture has owned his current build, a 1991 Honda CR-X, for over a very long time. It was completely stock when he received it. While cleaning the CR-X, Couture debated and planned on the many different ways to built it. "I decided to go with K series (motor)," mentions Couture, "at the time, very few people had done it." He went full-force and went legit parts.

"My son inspires me for this build," states Couture, "and will be passed down to him when he is older."
