My passion for my lude

Ok heres the deal, i rolled up to an import dealership somewhere in garland,tx where they had an nsx rx7 vipers, you name it. I saw the most beautiful black rx7 FD model. it reminded me of my old one that i had in japan. it was twin turbo, rebuilt motor and new apexi seals and the price was 12,500. my eyes were set to trading in my lude and getting this baby, however, i couldnt let go of it. something about my prelude wanted me to keep it and build it. my friend had a decal that said "built not bought" and i was in that position where i had to decide. so....i denied it and left, i drove my lude for a good 100miles and felt good about not trading in the car. Theres something special about this car, and i know i made the right decision. who needs an rx7 when you got a prelude, that gets better gas mileage haha.

Re: My passion for my lude

Good read, that's pretty cool you decided to keep the lude, it sounds easy to do but when you have the opportunity to get something faster it's hard to say no.

Re: My passion for my lude

haha hell yeah thats the place. that nsx blew my mind. after thinking about it i thought the lude was a better choice. the usdm rx7 has so many problems. blown apexi seals, factory turbo not lasting, rotors needing to be replaced after 80k, too much fuel consumption, gear grinds, and its so much more money to build them.
