Default 94 SSEI Finally

So i made the long trip up to Amherst Ohio to pick up my semi shiney 1994 ssei. Got to meet a member and even got a few bonneville club cards he left in the car. (Now i get to card a few people). But enough random talk here are my thoughts on driving the car for about 4 hours straight.

First off the room in this car is fantastic 9 way power seats should be standard on EVERYTHING.
The interior is really easy to get used to where all the gizmos are. This is a very well thought out car.
The heads up display is a little hard to see in the daylight but can still be seen.
I babied the car almost all day just testing the gas mileage to see what i could milk out of it.
That is until i got just outside my parents house. Back in the day me and my buddies actually got out a measuring tape and marked off a quarter mile. So of course i had to pop off a quick run just to see what time i clipped at the 1320 mark. After couple launches to try and find the stop spinning my tires launch my best was roughly 90-92 mph. So im very happy with car and Pinky is a great honest guy who is very helpfull.

Not sure if this is the right section for this topic but had to put my random mispelled unpunctuated hard to read thoughts down somewhere.

Thanks glad to be in the club

Glud to have you aboard...

If you think the seats rock now...try 36 hours straight. That'* the test I put mine to and they pass the 36 hour mark and want to keep going.
