the first time i ever kick my old 5th gen was the day i took her for the test drive. i was going ez at first then when i was away from the car place i got on it a lil bit not floored out still kinda ez like, then all of the sudden it hit 5200. my first thought was 0 S**T, the sound of a caged up beast waiting for the chance to be set free, .0005 seconds later i had the biggest smile and was hook, i still cry myself to sleep some nights wishing she was still mine

LOL the first time I ever experienced VTEC was on some backroad before I ever even knew what it was. Just floored it and I knew there was something special about my car. Especially when I got up to about 90 or so. Dang. Me and my baby have been through alot together.

First time I hit VTAK was the night I was bringing her home after buying her. My dad was following me in our Tahoe, and i pulled off from a stop sign down in the middle of the sticks where I live. She straight up FLEW! (and its the first night i had ever chirped a gear in a car). I was pretty proud of that car. every time i hit the VTAK, it still feels like the first time. Isnt that a song?

I test drove a 5th gen w/ my boy in the car. I beat the PISS outta that lude because the salesman was over 300lbs and couldn't fit in the car. we got to the first stop light and my boy looked at me and said "yeah, this car suits you just fine".
