It's filled with mint condition cars and memorabilia.

The 2021 Acura TLX looks like a major turning point for the Japanese brand, reviving the Type S name after a long hiatus and bringing the company back into the performance luxury limelight. The TLX Type S will be a direct competitor to the Audi S4 but with a turbocharged engine and 10-speed automatic transmission, there are still bound to be enthusiasts who prefer Acura's older catalog of cars with models like the Integra and Legend.

A YouTuber named Tyson Hugie is just such an Acura megafan and you simply won't believe what he keeps in his collection. Owning an assortment of vintage Acura models is rad enough but Hugie has taken his passion project a step further by turning a section of his house into a 1990s era Acura showroom.

The 15-minute tour video begins in the laundry room, where the entire roofline is covered with license plates from around the United States. Automotive-themed artwork adorns the walls including several Acura Radwood posters, original photography, vintage car magazines, and Hotwheels cars. A glass display case also houses original Acura badges, keys, memorabilia, model cars, original brochures, and even awards from MotorTrend and Kelly Blue Book. This portion of the collection is fascinating all on its own but it pales in comparison to the cars themselves.

The garage portion is just over 1,000 square feet and houses six cars. A television shows a looped sequence of period Acura videos from the 1990s while you marvel at the condition of these vehicles. The collection includes a 1992 Acura NSX, 1996 SLX, 1994 Legend sedan, 1994 Legend Coupe, 1994 Vigor sedan, and 1992 Integra GS-R but Hugie also owns other Acura vehicles including a 2013 ILX with a manual transmission. Few enthusiasts display this level of passion for a single brand and this is easily one of the coolest collections we have seen.
