My First Car!

First Post! lol no but really, I figured why not post an introduction of my first car which happens to be a 1995 Honda Prelude SR. I Bought it from a friend of the family, and it is in decent condition, I say decent because it does need some work. It has 200,000KM on it which I believe is around 125,000miles. This car was my friends winter car (drives a mustang in the summer). I purchased the car for $2000 the exhaust is brand new this year as well as the suspension, as soon as it gets nice outside ill take some "Before" shots because while I have the motor out it will be sent for body work and a new paint job. Motor is bone stock as a matter of fact the whole car is bone stock so I plan on using the guides and examples from this site to help me with the build of my first car.

As for the body work ill be doing most of it I'm going with a gun metal grey mettalic similar to the skyline and sylvia greyish silver, and black trim. I've got a quote for $1500 because I would be doing most of the work, as for the motor I've yet to have it checked for compression but am confidant that the numbers are fine. I have about $1000 set aside for anything the motor might need but Again I will be doing the work myself in a friends shop.

Anyways thanks A lot for having such a great data base looking forward to posting the pics.

Re: My First Car!

Hmmm how old are you??? I bought my first lude when I was 16 (last year), now im 17 and actually bought a second one which i just got done doing my engine bay shave on, and i just got done doing body work on the driver side, and put the driver side and bay in primer. Check out my build in my signature. You can see where I started, we sound fairly similar, doing almost everything ourselves at a young age. ;) But Im only paying 600 for the body shop, just to buy my lexus paint. Post pics man!

Im 21 Cody, I do however own a 1997 Ford F250 but thats my work truck I plow snow in the winter with it... I posted with the thread title "My First Car!" because it is my first car lol. But yeah I guess I would still classify as young? and it actually is pretty cool that we both are tackling a project like this at a young age I'll be sure to get some before pictures up ASAP, the weather here in Ontario Canada has been brutal and they are saying it will be brutal for the next week, Nice Tien shocks in your pictures btw man If mine weren't brand new OEM I would have Bought the same ones you did. Keep in touch though man nice meeting you.

Re: My First Car!

WOW^^^^^^^^^^^^ For real!!! Ya I moved outta Minot 5 years ago after my dad retired from the USAF. I hated the snow and cold, but loved going to the 2 out door hockey rinks that were literally 2 houses away. I lived on north hill by the airport if you were wondering. Thats by the KFC and all that. We lived as close as we could to the air foprce base...
