Memories of a Black SH

Just thought Id post this up. This was the first prelude I own loved the thing but never got a chance to fix it up the way I wanted. Picked it up April 17th of 2009 in Eau Claire Wisconsin for $3500( first vtec car so I jumped a gun here), this car had a nice body but a lot of mysteries inside it.

The first day I got it home


the guy had 10.2 wires which I thought was a eye sore so I got rid of them


The guy also decides to paint just the front wheels...


A few weeks later Ive been driving around thinking something is missing on the car so I pick up this PU WWRS lip kit for $300

back


Bought the car with 178,xxx miles on it I knew it was high but then again its a honda...I planed on swapping it eventually. Ive had the car for about a month now and being the the Kid I was I street race quite a bit back then, thinking that everything was good one night I raced a friend just for fun and took him buy a car but long story short the mounts for the trans mission were not bolted ion tight and I never thought to look there thinking the engine was good. The tranny dropped on me after that pull some I knew my night was done managed to get the car home and left it in the garage for about a week.....Then I bought this PDE stamped H23A





1 week later Motors in




found some window tint so I decided to have a little test try with a eye lid idea...thought It looked straight but no one else liked it so it was taken off


Did the same thing to the taillights


heres a side shot


shot of the engine bay


Driving home from a friends house one night and its raining out some guy cuts me off and I spun out....now It looks like I have one of the 4WS 5th gens


cracked a good chunk of my rim




replaced by sub-frame and everything in the back for about $480


few months pass and tax money comes in so My depo headlights were purchased along with new plates


new city lights to go along with the fogs



searching Craigslist for parts and I come across a post for some AP1 rims with slicks for autocross, all 5 for $250 I saw it as a steal




Never got the chance to put both these in


some rims I was thinking about getting but didnt


everything had been going good till the day I brought my car to Tiresplus for an alinement. They were supposed to check everything and make sure all my cotter pins and nuts were good but they let me drive out of there not knowing that would be the last day I drive my baby. so then the tie rod dropped of the freeway






smh car is done and I signed there waver so they wont do a thing for me


Another year passed and I pick up my 98 base. I knew I had to keep my SH till I found a good transplanter so the dream lives on




After I swapped everything over that I could I posted my lude for sale for $600...I find one buyer and he says he wont take it with out a motor I found a radiator support for it because I thought that was the extent of the damage, but anyway I told him $1200 with every thing so he decides to ask for just the motor I say know and he quickly offers $800 for everything so I say fine and Off She went
