Thats right!

I just can't do it. Everytime I drive my car I am thinking...NO WAY I AM SELLING IT!!

I'll just get another daily driver and park the Prelude for fun only.


The WRX is still a possibility...but who knows we'll see...might take the cheap route so the modification can continue.

I'm obsessed.


I am just glad my wife accepts me for who I am.

I know it is really sentimental but isn't it a money pit??? You might as well get a good trade in value for it and go for the WRX, it will give you some money to do initial mods to it. Sometimes it is better to think with your wallet thatn your heart, eventually you'll grow to love your new investment as any hardcore tuner would

I know the feeling, a prelude is a hard car to part with. Glad you decided to stay with it.

I am looking at it like this.

1) It gives me more enjoyment to drive than any other car I have owned.

2) I have invested an awful lot in it, I might as well have some fun with it.

3) Go back to #1


4) Its a sleeper and a half.


5) Its not finished, will it ever be..lol.

6) It has to run high 12's one day, even if that means running with a hurricane force tail wind..
Thats my goal, as hard as it is to reach.

7) Go back to number 1 again.

8) Go back to number 4 again.

9) It has a lot of great memories.

10) I will never get out of it what I have in it, so I am going to enjoy it for a while longer to get the most out of it.

Good for you! Thats awesome that your wife supports you, I'm sure 99.9% of women would force you to sell it. I want you to hit 12's before I move to Cali

have you run it since the 14 second massacre???
i wanna know how quick it is now

Only G-Tech....but thats not the strip. But the time had dropped quite a bit, not going to say until I run at the strip.


It was sub 14 though. I also noticed a 3+ m.p.h. increase. I used the G-Tech at the strip before and the times were dead on...just the m.p.h. are higher using it.

yeah gtech is instantaneous speeds not averages and such. We compared our times also, they're dead on the track times. at most off by .15 when you calibrate it right. What times did you run on gtech?

I really don't want to say yet, I want to get track confirmation. I'll just say I was really impressed.

Sub previous record.

Someday, if I'm ever speeding through Atlanta, I hope that YOU'RE the one who pulls me over. (Even though I haven't had a ticket since January of '86)

Hell, I've been banned for 6 months for speeding and had loads of points on my license.
You are either lucky or you drive like my gran!
