To those who know me personally, through this community, or Instagram, the news about my decision has been out. Approximately two months ago, I had to make a hard decision. I had an opportunity to get my hands on something I've been interested in for some time now. I had my eyes on a 6 speed 6 cylinder 8th gen Accord. Some of you may not know, but the availability of these are very slim. Although they were made in several quantities, it was not nearly as mass produced as the automatic versions. It's a rare breed indeed.

I wanted to test drive the car and debated whether or not I wanted to purchase the vehicle. If that was the end result, it had to meet two requirements. It had to be faster or nearly as fast as my 93. Secondly, it needs to be far better than my 2011 Accord i4 automatic.

I test drove it and made my decision. I purchased the vehicle in terms of what was more practical for me and longevity wise. The result of this purchase meant that I would have to get rid of the other two, the 93 included. The way I can best describe it is, this is both of my cars merged into one. The realiablilty and comfort of the 2011 with the speed and power of the 93.

After taking the 2012 6-6 home, I made freeway runs on both the 93 and 2012 to get a comparison on speed. I believe the 93 wins at a 1/4 mile but the 2012 wouldn't be far behind. The torque is quite outstanding and far more impressive than I thought from a Honda. It puts you in your seat.

Indefinitely I will miss my CB. It has been a passion of mines for over a decade. Although if I was wealthy, I'd keep it. However I'm thinking practicality and practicality finally won sentimental value. I also plan to build a family soon and so keeping this isn't in my future cards.

Furthermore, this is a better platform to build on out of the box, with Honda's amazing realiablilty, mods are almost endless. Smog will no longer be a headache and worrying where I have to park my car won't be so heavy. I love my CB but it's finally time to put it down. For those who tell me not to, it's too late. Yes this build was not of the typical, and it was tastefully done. No it wasn't a "buy all the jdm parts yo" and threw it together. This was my build, and it has my personality, love it or hate it.

...And that is why I stand by my word I could never sell it whole. There would only be a small handful I would sell it to whole and that's because I would know it would be in good hands. However even that thought is hard to swallow.

The legacy of this car will be spread across this forum however parts are already reserved. Close friends and friends who have helped me most with my build has first selections, regardless of how much more I can sell it for. My gratitude is to them and it is worth way more than the extra cash I could ever make. When the parts are for sale, I will post them in a FS thread. If they aren't on a thread, don't bother. Your message and PM will be ignored. Give me time to sort out what I have to remove first and last.

Also as mentioned before. I am and will forever be an enthusiast of Accords. Like my friend and tuner told me.
"Man you really stayed true with the Accord. I know your style. You make sure everything coordinates together".
He's absolutely right. I brainstorm often and I make sure everything interacts with each other. Everything. It's just the way I do things, and if you know me, any car I get my hands on will have its own style, cause it's whatever I envision in my mind that's possible.

So to a new build, my hats off to you all to keep us on the map!

Finally the cars.

A sad day for me:


2012 and 2011. I will be swapping parts over:


2011 and the 93:


8th gen potential on the 2011:


And the completely stock purchase...oh and me lol. The man behind the car:

Wow... The end of an era. I may not have said much on your thread, but I have spent a lot of time checking it out!

Good luck with the new build! It goes without saying you'll make an impression in that generation.

If it's still together by July 30, FFC will be having their annual BBQ. You should bring it as I never got to see this beautiful cb. It's in alameda so not too far from you.

I was just at Blacktrax on Friday, and thought about you. While I am saddened to check in and find this, I get it. I had a feeling it was eventually going to happen. I support your decision to put your family first.

3rd and final wind for me. It's been a few years. Looking forward to a comeback. The parts I've sold will be repurchased out of respect and support from the buyers to help me bring this car back to life. Love at its truest.

Since my last post I've owned a 2012 Accord 6-6 that I have sold and currently own a 98 CDM Prelude. I'll be posting once I figure out what uploading website I want to use. I'm not paying Photobucket.

In the meantime, I'm on IG. jdm_inspired_93

Glad to see some are still around.

Paying for photo hosting is just what's happening, it seems there's no way around it. It can't be cheap for those companies to store so much data, though, so it's only right to support them. Personally, I don't know what I'd do without somewhere to host my photos online; I've been on forums since I was a teenager.

Glad to hear you're coming back, your car was a favorite from day one for me.

Flickr's free to a point. I have way too many photos to qualify for their free account. But they seem like a good company with an honest passion for photography, so I stayed on and pay for a full account.

Yeah I actually have Flickr. Thanks, I've gotten that a lot actually. Part of the reason to bring it back. So much love for this build.

Every time I see a cb7 driving down the road. I think about when I had mine and how much more I could do with one now. I've been seeing so many for sale down here for dirt cheap too, that I'm like maybe I should be the one to save that one haha. I need more garage room and not to move around anymore. I have gone through a few projects/daily drivers since the CB7. A 93 eg hatch, 2006 VW GTI, 95 Civic Coupe, and now a 03 Mustang Cobra.

Long story short what I'm trying to say is I was always a fan of your car, and can't wait to see what you do with the next one. I'll be lurking again
