The Dream of the '90s: Ando's 2012 Honda Fit Sport

Words and Images by Andy Carter

We recently took a trip up to Nashville, TN to visit the Lane Motor Museum and had a chance to hang out with our friend Ando Rajavong and see his incredible teal Honda Fit. Granted its a little newer than what we usually post, but we won’t ever turn down a rad little Honda in teal on white wheels. And the Fit just happens to be the best little sport compact left, so just go ahead and enjoy it.

Honda has recently rediscovered that cars could be made in neat colors, and Blue Raspberry Metallic lead the charge. Paired with a set of white TE37s, this thing screams ‘90s despite being made deep into the 21st century. Furthermore, the modernization of economy cars has done a lot to suck the soul out of the sub-compacts, but the GE model Fit managed to hold over just enough from its Golden Era Honda ancestors to still scratch the itch.

Like any good Honda owner, Ando has covered his Fit in rare parts from Japan, including JDM-spec LED clear tailights and a Modulo front grill. That rear wing is a real-deal J’S Racing piece, creating enough downforce that a custom steel bracket had to to created to prevent it ripping off the OEM mounting point. A USDM-spec Mugen rear lip was modified (yikes!) to create the aggressive track-spec rear.

Future plans for the Fit include a K24 swap, 15” Gram Lights, and a whole lot more track time. Follow Ando over at his Instagram, and stay tuned for way more coverage from our trip to Lane Motor Museum!
