No one can deny the popularity of cars like the Civic, Integra, or even the S2000, but let us not forget about those chassis that reside among the outskirts of the cool crowd. The aftermarket and, admittedly, the media have long neglected cars like the Prelude, Accord, and Civic wagon. Make no mistake about it though, cool crowd acceptance isn't limited to the big three but memberships are steep. Even in import-rich Southern California, tastefully modified, well-balanced versions of less-than-popular models are a rare sight. It isn't easy embarking on a build that's not fully supported by the aftermarket. Careful planning, a bit of ingenuity, and a whole lot of creativity are crucial to ensuring the project will actually draw some positive attention rather than fall off the map. Introduced in 2003, the Honda Element is a car that doesn't really fit into any specific category. It's not really a car at all and, by all definitions, isn't really a truck either. It's really just a big box with a ton of interior space and unmatched flexibility, as well as a quirky outward appearance. Add to that a hefty curb weight and an absence of cutting-edge aerodynamics and it's easy to see why the Element hasn't infiltrated into the cool crowd yet.
