When she found it it was Bone-Evil'*, she was ok with it.

(part of that had to do with the custom laser engraving, which she thought was super-cool)

That'* true. The whole week I was there we never used it except for parts storage. Eat on the couch.

It was hard to time washing the dishes when the parts washer was busy.

Your daughter looks almost like a Katie that I went to school with in the dining room pic.

That'* not a bad looking accord, either. Very clean. Always liked that body style.

..Are you gonna put an M62 on there?

Neat car. Before my LeSabre, I had a 1994 Honda Accord EX sedan which is mechanically identical to that car (if it is also an EX). Slower than grandma with a walker in a straight line but could handle pretty well. It was a fun car to drive.

Actually, the F22'* weren't all that economical...I couldn't ever seem to get more than 22 mpg with a mix of city/highway driving. Sometimes as low as 18. It was rated 25/31.

Couple of things to be wary of:

I see you are already replacing a power window regulator...watch those, I had several go out.

Wiper motors tend to wear out faster than normal.

If it'* an auto, expect it to shift rough. I've never driven a Honda auto that didn't but that one was particularly bone jarring at times.

I also had my ABS computer die on me, don't know if that'* a trend or just my problem.

Hard to think of anything else really...accessories aside, it just kept on going.

My Civic is pretty bad, but my dad'* 1992 Accord EX is especially heinous -- neck-snapping, even.

Completely normal it seems. And rough shifting, unfortunately results in a more frequent occurence of broken motor mounts

LOL...there is a bunch of stupid ricer Accords/Civics at my school with dumb LED exhaust tips, off-color body panels, and they rev there engines and they all sound like **** and I laugh so hard. They think they got a fast car and all and it pisses me off... I just want to race them all one day and smoke the crap outta all of them.

Take it to the dragstrip. Every year at WCBF we see a bunch of 'em turning their noses up at us during test and tune on Friday afternoon (we bracket race the next day).

They don't pay much attention to us, as they race each other, and we race each other, but you should see the look of "what a loser, he has high hopes' when we paint our dial-in times on our windows.

Then you should see the look on their faces when we nail those times (typically a couple full seconds quicker than them) during 'practice' bracket racing.

It'* funny how many of them add weight with body kits and huge subs and amps, and leave all that in the car, but pull the back seat.


Wanna school 'em? The track is DEFINITELY the place to do it.

Careful though, they don't take much to be quick. There'* one in town that i couldn't beat for the life of me, civic hatchback, b18 swap, sucker was quick!
