DaX's N600 Restoration

First off I'd like to thank Matt for re-lighting the fire under my *** and getting me re-interested in owning a Honda N600.

This thread will document the restoration of a Honda N600.

As some of you may know, I bought one on eBay a few weeks ago that Matt found for me - there is a thread HERE that talks about it. Yesterday I received two more 1971 Honda N600's for a grand total of three of these cars.

Here is a picture of my stable...in this picture is ALMOST as much horsepower as in a D16Z6!



The car that I will be restoring is in the foreground left. The other two cars will be used for parts. I probably won't be starting this restoration until a few weeks out after my house is built. The cars are currently stored at my dad's house.

My goal is to have a running car that is registered and insured by April 1, 2007, so that I can show at the annual Georgia Tech Auto Show. The restoration won't be complete by then, but I would like to be able to show my "work-in-progress."

Additional pictures of my N600's can be found HERE. I will be updating these pictures from time to time, but I'll post in this thread vital shots.

Good luck, Dax. Looks like fun.

There's something inherently amusing about looking at 3 of the same tiny cars packed in the same space. I have a couple of pics like that from when I was a VW Rabbit "restorer" in my university days.

I like the 2-tone green one best.

The link to more pics requires registration, though. Is that right?

so the car you'll be restoring is the one with the headlights seen in the picture?

Ok, I think I fixed the link on the pictures. Try it now.

Yes Compaq, the one in the pictures where you can see the headlights is the one I hope to drive.

It does my heart good to see the 600's. Reminds me of my childhood. Use to see them alot. Seeing we had Fiats, the little Hondas, Subaru's, Opels and other small to micro cars where always picked out. Simca's, Austin's, MG. The list could go on and on.

There is a Honda dealer in Tulsa that keeps a 600 on the sales floor. Ive also seen one on the sales floor in Lawton.

Lucky Americans. The car was never sold here (an odd reversal of Canadians often getting the small cars first). The first 600 I ever saw was Matt's, right here on this site.
