Pictures speak louder than words, and this picture says it all:
Can anyone guess what this was??
Instead of guessing here is a picture of what it looked like prior to that fatal day (car fatality, nobody was harmed not even me)
I always like those movies that show the ending first and then discuss how it all happened in a fairy tale like setting. It’s romance for a gear head, our wedding, love story so to speak.
This go’s out to all my Honda junkies out there, those guys who will always be a lover of N/A (normally aspirated cars…..in non car junkie terms, a car that does not have the help of forced induction aka a turbocharger or supercharger to produce more output from the motor). Those who love N/A more than anything are the true car junkies, and the ones that can really understand where I get the term a car and the “soul” it has. There is nothing like a car that produces over 100hp/litre from a normally aspirated engine. Drive one and you will understand exactly what I mean.
Car number 2 I first fell in love with when I saw a more base version of it driving around town. I always wondered what the hell that little car was and finally I was able to inspect one in a parking lots one day and saw “Prelude”.
Shall we begin!
On my 16th B-day I already was a severe addict for the automotive world, more specifically having the “mod flu” that could not be healed unless I bought a cold air intake for anything and everything. I even considered putting an after market exhaust on my lawn mower just for the hell of it to gain /001 hp and potentially cut 10 more strains of grass per revolution. Yes it truly is an illness but let’s share our stories of our cars we had owned and loved and what we remember most of them…..all of mine will be about mods of course haha!!
I was 16 yrs old, and 8 months (quickest route to get license in Canada) and I had my sights set on one car for a very long time, the mazda MX-6. The year was 2002, and my local dealership had two on the lot, a 1994 v6 mystere 5-speed, and a 1997 mystere v6 4-speed auto. Since I was a coward I decided to take the easy way out and purchase the more expensive auto v-6 for 9500$. I remember the day I picked it up like it was yesterday, god I was so excited. Finally I could begin fighting the mod flu…..little did I know it’s chronic and untreatable at the time.
