Akina Speed Stars?

Virgin?

Respecc for Save the Manuals tho. Saw an E60 M5 with a Save the Manuals sticker the other day. No joke brightened my entire day XD

Haha I like the license plate bracket. Curious as to a 0-60 time…

The virgin one was originally a Virginia one. A friend of mine cut the ia as revenge for a prank I pulled on his car. We have a bet going to see who caves first and removes it.

As for a 0-60 time, I’ve never gotten an official time, but my amateur attempts yielded low 7 second numbers. Granted there’s usually 100 pounds worth of tools in the trunk and it still needs new plugs, wires, and tranny fluid. Only mod so far is a resonator delete. I am gonna open the exhaust up to 2.5 inches after I replace the timing belt. I think the 1MZ is one of the better sounding V6s. Also gonna get some sports tires once the cheap ones on there now wear out. And gonna do some suspension upgrades once I replace the steering rack. I’m definitely changing the bushings. Might do the sway bar too.

Edit: In my defense on the weeb flair, Takumi also drove a battered old Toyota.

Changed the Camry’s transmission fluid today. I don’t know when (or if) it was last changed, so I’m gonna let the fluid run for a week or so and change it again. My plan of slowly building the car up to being better than it was is working. Also ordered a new fuel filter for it. Not sure if that was changed either. Also ordered a couple parts for the Neon. It’s also gonna need a new starter.


#85

Ordered the new starter and a new solenoid for the Neon. That should be here sometime next week. Also the Camry has had some electrical gremlins over the past couple of days. I had half the dash apart trying to diagnose it. Turns out it was the dome light fuse (there are 2. 1 in the cabin, 1 in the engine bay. The engine bay one was kinda blown. I initially thought there was only the one in the cabin). Even my headaches with this car aren’t so bad in the grand scheme of things.

I bought yet another car today. It’s a 1988 Honda Accord LX. My 1st 80s car and my 1st carbureted car.

(note: these are the pictures the auction took. But it looks the same as it does here)
It has the A20A1 2 liter I4 making a whopping 98hp and a 5 speed manual (yes, the clutch is good).

If cars could tell stories, I’m sure this would have many. Fine shitbox, sir.


#88

It’s so beaten but it still looks happy. Full of life even after such great an odometer. I love it, congratulations on your new car!


#89

Carbureted in 1988? Puts the “shit” in shitbox! Surprised it doesn’t have a 4-speed! Seems like it’ll be a lot of fun to beat up. Congrats good sir.


#90

This is my 1st proper shitbox. And yeah, this was the last generation they offered with a carb (they did offer fuel injection on the higher trims). The USDM ones only had a 5 speed manual or a 4 speed auto. I’m going to pick it up this tuesday, so I’ll comment further on it then.

Picked up the Accord yesterday. I mentioned an issue with the popup headlights on discord. That went away on its own. The issues it does have are:
The synchro on 4th gear is weak
The radio doesn’t work
There’s an exhaust leak causing it to run rough at idle (the idle mixture is electronically controlled via the O2 sensor)
