total lack of inspiration
not sure what’s up lately but it’s been 3 posts in a month… rather then 3 posts a week. Fall really sucks, it’s rains all the time here and it seems everyones project cars are on hold till after christmas. as for my ’92 civic si hatch project…. well I lost interest, it’s the on going dilemma of the daily/family car and project in one, it can’t be done. I can’t please everyone or even myself, the civic is great in town and the Koni/H&R race combo works very well for me but my wife hates it (she misses the cressida on the coilovers). but the car is irritatingly noisy on the highway even with the stock intake and exhaust and driving people around and running errands with a 2 door really sucks.
I need to get a car that I have absolutely have no interest in modifying to use for daily/family stuff and road trips. Then I can get a 2nd vehicle for my project that I can drive to work in the summer, modify however I want, and drive the hell out of… and if I break it now and then… no biggie I have a normal car as a back up…. or if the project needs to go under the knife for a season or 2…. so be it.
I might get an accord for the family stuff (94-97) but I’d want the v6 or the wagon (can’t get the v6 in the wagon tho) I’d want this car to be an auto but the auto makes the 4 banger too slow, hence the v6 would be nice…….. BUT the big problem here is that the accord is a totally modifiable car…. I can almost guarantee I’d end up modding it.. at least with just some springs and wheels….. but most the cars I’d consider for the “family” car I’d mod, like a legacy, impreza, civic, ls400, gs300, is300….. I’d have to get something soo boring (camry) or something soo ugly (forester)…. that modding it would produce no gain…. just money lost… or I could get a van like a 1st gen honda odyssey, but no a previa… I’d totally mod that
here’s some pics of modified accords that are very simple with only a few mods…. but mods that I would certainly try to replicate.
I know that most of these cars you’ll think… why bother…. but I’m a car junkie… addicted
