Sup guys?

Well, long time no post. Last time I was active on here was back in around 2012 I believe? When I was active, I was living in California and had a white cb7 sedan I was building. I ended up moving back home to Delaware. And took a break from cars. Started making adult decisions and purchases. Schooling, full time work getting a place, etc.

Well, 5 years later of no post on here, I'm stopping by too p at homage to my favorite forum. I learned a lot through this site, and you new guys here will learn a lot as I did. I know some of the members have their ways of doing things, but before you guys get butthurt, it's ultimately beneficial to you. So just relax and take in the knowledge.

I haven't quite been around since that unofficial facebook group got ran to the crapper, but I've managed to keep in touch with a few. Alex, Doug, Andrew, Julian, and a few others I'm sure. So for those I lost touch with, I did get back into cars and nodding. I however have went to the dark side. I now am building a 98 civic ex. I'll add pics of it in a few. As it sits, it's dropped down with all the look pretty nonsense. Wheels lips etc. I got it painted about 4 months after buying it and would end up swapping in a b20b with a gsr trans. As it sits now, it is getting the bottom end rebuilt as I had blown the rings last week.

Before that, I took on a car payment. I we t with Deev's advice which was exactly the same as my father's. Get a car that I had no interest in except for driving. It was an 03 Pontiac grand prix bro. For what it was, it was fun. Very much reliable and affordable. I used that time to like I said, get myself situated. Point being, here I am NIW back in the game, and doing adult things. Oh and for those that remember me being the smart was 20 year old on here, I'm now 26. Just to show how long it's been lol.

Well, here's some pics of it all.

My cb7 I had in california





The Pontiac I had during my 4 year hiatus





And my current build.





And with my girlfriends matching civuc at Honda day



And because I bring it up, here's a roller coming from Honda day of her civic



Well that about sums it up. Any questions about the cars ask away, for those who know and Re member me, say what's up! Let me know how you all are doing. Outside if that, I look forward to hearing from everyone!

Welcome back!

I had one of those Grand Prixs about a decade ago. Drove it too hard, put 50k on it in about a year, and the poor thing ended up needing too much work to fix. I traded it in for a 2009 Fit (which I put 390,000 miles on before selling it to a CB7tuner member, who has since gotten it above 450,000!)

The Civics look good!
I almost went to Honda Day this year. I haven't been in so long!

Ah deev himself! How's it going man? I see your old fit around every now and then. Julian is actually local to me. Good guy he Is! He takes that fit everywhere too lol. Honda day isn't what it used to be you aren't actually missing too much from there. I was however impressed with the amount if older accords there. One of them being an imported cb coupe! Was impressive to see nonetheless.

The "dark side" to me is an old Mopar with a 440ci engine on it. There is something so very dark about those Coronets, Satellites and Barracudas that keeps calling to me. Welcome back and nice Civic!
