jdm_inspired : 1993 Accord EX







Hello. Thank you for taking the time to view my Members' Ride page. A quick background about me. I joined this site sometime in September of 04 as nocturnal cb7. Before, I knew nothing about cars. I originally wanted a 3rd generation Accord hatchback. What drew me away from that chassis was the interior. So instead I decided to settle for a Black 1990 EX sedan M/T.

The plan was to fully tint the windows and slap some big 20" chromies. It never happened. In fact, the complete opposite route was taken.
I am what they call on this site, an OG member. Unfortunately my join date doesn't say so, because I didn't carry on the IP account.
Instead I started over with a coupe in 2006. I hated the motorized automatic belts, and to tell you the truth, I wanted something sportier so I purchased a Black 1993 Accord EX M/T impulsively from a craigslist seller selling a subwoofer.

I had no idea this small car hobby of mine would turn into a money-eating monster. I started this build from scratch. Yes, built not bought. So much time was invested, so much money was spent, and so much blood was bled and I have the scars to prove it. So many lessons learned, and some very costly.

I never thought it would progress into something like this, and through these pages you will see my inclines and downfalls, trials and tribulations. I am truly honored to have inspired many; some who have surpassed my build, and was unaware my build was motivation to them. I almost gave up on this car a handful of times, but it was the very members on this board that convinced me to keep going, and I deeply thank you all. I would've regretted it.

Please feel free to browse around and if you have any questions, to PM me.

Enjoy my build chronicle.

Anthony
