    Well, an Integra that is. I sold my Tacoma and picked up a SUPER clean 90 Integra GS.

    It's probably the cleanest that I've encountered so far, as most of them are torn up and scavenged and what not. Hmm, lets see.... It's red, lowered, tinted windows, the interior looks like it hasn't even been sat in, carpet in in wonderful shape, the fabric on the door panels is coming loose a little, but I'll get to that eventually, no wheels but some really nice- smooth tires that I'm unfamiliar with the name, so I'll have to take a look and post up the name. It's got I/H/E, all done very well with quality parts, but the exhaust is a bit loud for my taste. When I get some spare $ I'll look into replacing it. I'm thinking RS*R, unless there is a better/quieter option out there.... It has Infinity speakers all around and a small sub/amp combo that gives me a nice back rub, which is plenty for me. Power windows, and the passenges side is a little slow. Sunroof is there as well, and works great. There's a type-r style shift knob and a guage cluster and some red lights inside, which I'm not really into, but it's tasteful enough that I don't feel like replacing them.

    Overall, I love it! It rides very smoothly and handles extremely well. Drives exactly how I want it to, so basically I'm super comfortable in it. I'm very happy with it, and I also get an average of 32 mpg, which is a huge + for me.

    :woot: for a new car!

    EDIT: Oh yeah... Pictures up soon!

    It was a 1998 Tacoma 4x4 with insulated topper, BedRug liner, bike rack, new Yoko's, and 175,000 miles. I got $6,000 for it. Picked up the Teg for $3,000.

    B, if you would have come to my house for it, then you could have had it. I was trying to sell it for a while, and then finally did. :w00t:

    Well, luckily it's getting cold out so I won't be using the window as much, but yes, I've been meaning to do that and some other minor stuff, I just need to find the time. Even a couple extra hours is hard to come by these days. I need to get my temps and insurance in place first, lol.

    Diez picz is coming soon!

    For now, I'll have to take them and then email them from my dad's computer. I need some time to figure out how to use my new operating system, lol. I'll probably post a thread in the technology forum for some quick help with Linux for those who use it....

    I paid $6,300 for it last year and put around 20k miles on it. Plus 175k miles is quite a lot to be had for a 98. $6k was about the right price actually, with Colorado's used car market. Only losing $300 off the purchase price? I'm cool with that.

    w00t for another g2 owner! :) you'll fall in love. i guarantee it. :) I still can't bring myself to get rid of the widow.... never will... *sigh*

    I wanna seeeee!!!

    RS*R FTW, I got some good ideas for sound, too, considering I've experimented... I'm wondering though, do the windows still seal nicely? Everyone I know with pw tells me that after a while the seals get old, etc. mine still seal great. no wind noise when on freeway. It sucks when that seal pops randomly while driving... gets all loud...

    Yay! :)

    I think the window seals are good for now. Seems like a little air is starting to get through though.

    I'm pretty sure it's a new paint job, but it was well done. It blends perfectly. Although red isn't my first color choice, I like it a lot. Hopefully I'll get some pictures up soon. You guys'll flip when you see the engine bay... AY BAY BAY!
