    Ya... I, too, used to have an Integra. '88 with a tricked out B16A. Oh how I miss the VTEC. Its too bad that I had to crash that car. Into a Mazda Protege. What a waste.  
     
    And now I drive a Saturn Ion. It ain't much, but I can TOTALLY buy a turbo charger for it from the factory. Nice.

    My friend Nick had an Integra. It was a nice car until he took a sharp turn at 50mph and we played where's the drainage ditch. I also had a girlfriend that used to drive a Honda Civic. She took a gentle curve at 90mph and flipped a couple times. Only a scratch. Car was totaled.

    I've gone sideways in a frys van, I've gone rallying in a frys van, I've gotten a frys van stuck on a stump while off-roading in it, I've gotten a cumulative 23 or so seconds of airtime in a frys van with all 4 wheels off the ground, I have done 3 doughnuts in a frys van, I did a 30 second brake stance in a fries van, I forgot what D meant on an auto transmission so I left it in 2 while going down the freeway at 70 where the rev limiter would kick in, and I drove it on one wireless total of 10 miles freeway and about 2 miles surface streets with 0 oil pressure the temp gauge was pinned the whole trip oh and my auto trans amnesia hadnt gone away yet so it was in 2nd gear.

    WOOOOOOOOOT went to the local park hollister to scare a friend. I was climbing up a hill about 45 deg slope forgetting i had adjusted the gas to keep from redlining on the freeway. not enough power = stall not good on a 45 deg slope so I start it back up. and slowly back up down the hill but the brakes keep getting spongier and spongier until they really wern't doing much. The bottom half of the hill was done with no brakes along with the drive home and the drive here to nano.Looking for my head ............... yeah the eight valve one yeah ....

    Two reasons: I need two cars because my twin and I work in opposite directions. To top that, we were thinking about selling the Yamaha and getting a jeep because on the weekends, my twin and I go ghost towning and dont like to borrow other's cars when offroading.  
    And also, because a used jeep is relatively inexpensive.Superhero!

    IF ..... but it is still clunky slow and not right for off-road .......... unimogs are great but kind-of big ......... tatra's and kraz's are also good ........ but a jeep is americanized heavyness if you had a brakeline failure in a jeep in the same situation with the same mods as my zuk you would be in the hospital if you go and get a really old one they are worth it but the new junk hasnt impressed me build a tube frame buy a 1970 whatever and you now have a road legal whatever with a tube frame and boggers. The only thing a similarly equipped jeep will beat me on is power and speed but i'm planning on stuffing the hood full of 302 or rotory in the next year or so ....... crap that then makes it a minimum of 300 lbs closer to a jeep damn.Looking for my head ............... yeah the eight valve one yeah ....
