What is the Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle concept?
Meridian Honda only sells the manufacturer’s cars, trucks and crossover SUVs. However, it isn’t much of a secret that there are a lot of products that bear the Honda logo. One of the company’s most popular products is its side-by-side all-terrain vehicle the Pioneer 1000. Honda did an interesting thing at the SEMA show last month in Las Vegas where they combined the ATV platform with some components from the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck. So, what is the Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle concept? Well it uses the base platform from the Pioneer 1000, but also employs a modified body structure and suspension system from the Ridgeline. The result is an open-top off-road vehicle that looks like it’s all but unstoppable. It’s worth pointing out that this is NOT COMING to Meridian Honda. It appears to be a one-off thing Honda built for SEMA. Take a look at the photos below. Read the rest of this entry »

American journalist and modern humorist, Dave Barry, is responsible for one of our favorite quotes of all time, ‘You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.’ If we look at the subtext of the statement, we can infer that Barry’s message is that it’s ok to fondly look back on our youth. Honda is tapping the powerful feeling of nostalgia by using some of the most popular toys ever sold. So, what toys are in the new Honda commercials. We thought it would be fun to take a look at why these toys were so fun and how they’re being used by Honda. If there are any toys you would like to have seen, let us know in the comments.
