The '88 Accord! Now in hibernation.

Recommended Posts

:o Replaced spring with OEM item?!

Get it lowered [smash.gif];)

Yeah dude, not worth lowering as she is, plus it was proper cheap at £30 for the spring! [smash.gif]

Well I went to my brother's garage after work to fetch the Accord, he hadn't even done the MOT yet so I hung around and helped do it! [smash.gif]

Here she is during her MOT yesterday having her emissions tested!

45 minutes later we have this....

Happy days!

She's now sat at home, waiting to be used! The next few weeks she'll sit pretty, then I go off to Le Mans and when I come back, the Saab will go up for sale and as soon as it's sold I'll insure and tax the Accord for daily use!

Though my mate who's going to be in the car with me on the Le Mans trip keeps trying to get me to take the Accord on the Euro trip! Tempted as hell but would mean a lot of messing about and paying to change the vehicle on the ferry etc! [smash.gif]

The biggest problem if I were to mod the Accord is parts, nobody makes anything for these in the aftermarket division! Customising is not something I'd be able to do! [smash.gif]

The couple of trips I've done in her to the garage etc have had me smiling, she's by no means quick, I mean an OAP on a mobility scooter will do the 1/4 mile quicker but the charm of her is epic! 8-)

That's lush! [smitten.gif]

Will have to see how things pan out! At the minute having her as a daily will be plenty! 8-)

I'd be happy to make the trip down to show her you at some point! :idea:

Good news on the MOT, I see you have an advisory for coil springs though, now you definitely have to get it lowered. :D

Yeah it's not much, but again, will see what happens in the future as I need to deal with debts etc, possibly look into buying a house, priorities and all that lark! But I know the car will last as long as I need her to! :D8-)

When's the Somerset meet?

Are you bringing the deck to the meet then?

Le Mans? No, would be too much messing about this late on and I can't be doing with the hassle and cost of changing details on the ferry etc so she'll sit pretty until after I get back, then it's a matter of time of getting the Saab binned off as quick as possible! [smash.gif]

Edit:Just looked into it, Gold Member inboxes (well mine) is now only 50 PMs big, I had three times that in mine!

 

So I suspect Krzys needs to be emptied.
