thanks man. I am planning on painting it and taking off the spoiler and selling it and getting something more useful. I am going down in the world, yes I am. I have accepted the fact that people think my car is a piece of ****, hell I am lucky i can drive in my physical condition, so what the **** ever. I have a car that I take better care off then most people do around here so that makes my car special and unique. I always put super when I go to the gas station, change the oil every three thousand miles, wash it, vacumm it, shine it up, and it looks good in those pics. It'* comfortable to ride in, and it has a kick *** heater to when it is freezing cold, and i live in maine and i know cold.

I did the same thing to mine, looks like yours is in good shape, so make sure you preserve what you can...

my engine looks pretty much similar to that, except I don't have a strut tower bar. I took up my air box and put in a custom air intake. other then that, it is bone stock, except for new radiator, new battery, and new plugs and wires.

To up your handling nice and cheap...get an STB...and watch your handling get way better. Its ties in the front end very nicely

Best mod I did to RLD

I am not planning on dumping too much more money into this thing. I have got well over 2.500 into it already I have had it slightly over a year. I plan on changing my ignition to MSD, painting it of course, upgrading my exhaust again, replacing my alternator, and whatever else I can throw in there that isn't to much money but will make my car run a lil faster and last a little longer.

Fortunately I wasn't really looking at them, just caught them on the corner of my eye because there were about 4 people in the car. Now I don't know what was going through the driver'* mind because he was pretty confident he would whoop my *** because he has a civic and I have a bonne. Now if I am not mistaken, civics have only 2.something liter engines while my bonneville has a balls to the wall 3.8 liter v6. But none the less, the light turned green and I blew his doors off. Then I came up to another red light and he tried to get the jump on me but with my 5 second 0-60 time, to say the least he failed and I whooped his *** again. Unbelievably in my one year of having my bonne, that is the only civic I have raced, but it is my most memorable kill because I hate imports and everyone who has one is unoriginal and dull. Remember, just because u have an import doesn't mean u can beat everyone, and when u line up with a bonne, whether it be mine or a ssei supercharged, don't be so cocky, cause there is a good chance your gonna get your *** whooped.
