Would you like to have your first generation CRX, or classic Honda featured on the blog?  If so, that's great!  Fan Ride features are the meat and potatoes of this blog.  I'm always happy to share people's passion about their 1G CRXs and/or classic Hondas.  Please read the following to help you get started.  

To create a blog post that features your car, I will need you to provide your own images as well as some background on who you are, and details on your vehicle.  However, if you are local, ( in the northern part of Georgia, USA, or in the Southeast in general ) I might be able to shoot your car for you.  You will need to send both your images and your written background via email:

Take the time to capture some quality images if you do not already have them.  When it comes to process photos such as the garage/shop pictures, send what you have.  No one expects you to handle an expensive camera while covered in grease, and everyone likes to see what you've done to your car.  Be sure to title your images with the same tag line as your corresponding background email.  For example: Images: "JoeR_image-1", Email title: "JoeR_Vehicle Submission...".

Technical specifications:

Image Size:  No smaller than 600px in width (longest side of the image).  The larger the resolution, the better.  The more resolution that I have to work with, the better the quality of the image is, after it is compressed for web use. 

All images submitted will be watermarked with the blog logo.  If the images already have a watermark, I will make sure not to cover up the original watermark.  If you are submitting images from a third party, please provide proof that sharing the photo does not infringe on copyrights.  Also, please provide the name of the original photographer for proper citation.  If you have any doubts or questions about your images, just shoot me an email. 

Emailing Images:

Hopefully there won't be any complications when sending images via email, but if there is, there are other options.  If you have large image files and/or a lot of images, it might be easier to load them onto an image server site, such as Google's Picasa.  Then you can provide me a link to where you placed them on the server, and I can download them from there.


Below is a list of questions you can use to help you get started in regards to the type of information I would like to include in your feature.  Remember, this information will be on a public site, so make sure that the information you provide in your submission is suitable for public knowledge.

Who are you?

Where are you from?

What was your first experience with a 1st generation CRX (or Classic Honda)?

When did you purchase your car?

What was the story behind the purchase?

Do you own other Honda/Acuras? If so, what are they?

What have you done to the car since you purchased it? Modifications? Restoration? Just regular maintenance? 

What do you love most about your 1st gen (or Classic Honda)?

What do you use your car for? (Daily driving, autoX, track)

What are your future plans for the car?

Do you take your vehicle to local or nationwide car events? If so, which ones?

Has your car seen any previous recognition? Awards? Articles? Photography?

If you race your car, where do you race, what racing organization(s) are you a part of?  Racing history?

Any interesting facts about your car?  (ex. Found a rare Mugen steering wheel in the trunk...)

Hopefully this will get you started.  The more information you share, the better.  Don't worry about your literary skills, I will be writing each post with the information you provide.  If you feel it is necessary to be quoted directly, just let me know.  

As I stated before, to submit your background statement, just email it to me at this address:

GENONEBlog Email

Please try to send both your images and background submission at the same time.  It will help me keep track of it, and process your submission quicker.  Since this is a '1 man show', I'll need about two weeks to complete your submission.  If I have any questions, I will contact you. Thanks for your interest!!
