In the spirit of the holidays, we thought we'd link up with one of the most gorgeous models in the automotive industry, Nicole Reckers, with one of the hottest cars on the market, the Civic Type R. She's sweet and definitely knows more about cars than your average girl. Nicole is a Cali native, which means you can catch her at a number of car shows that happen throughout the year. Make sure to give her a follow on Instagram at
