Hey guys. I havn't been on this site for quite awhile and I'm not sure if anyone remembers me. My old lude:



After a shitty tune and too much boost, I traded it in and got my S2K:



The plan was to sell the Lude because I couldn't afford to dump anymore $$$ into it. The S2K was left stock as I was preparing to purchase a condo. Durring the condo hunt I started thinking, "Do I really want to park a $25K car outside in a condo parking lot every night?" I worried about door dings, and theifs, and all kinds of shit. So I figured I need to get something I can drive every day and something that I don't have to worry too much about.

I drove a couple local 5th gen Ludes that were for sale, but I just couldn't find anything that great in my area. As it came closer to the closing for my condo, I found this car and said "fuck it" I need something and this is nice enough:



It's a 99 Acura 3.0CL, automatic. Nothing speical. Got it for $9800 with 75k miles. It's great for daily driving, and I was able to purchase my own condo last month.

Anyway, on to the real reason I'm posting. The S2K, and sure as hell not the CL, ever lived up to my Prelude. You don't know how many people I see that say, "Where's the Prelude?" or "The S2K is great, but your Prelude kicked ass." I really reget not being more carefull with the motor so I could have kept it. A year after selling it, I still miss it like hell. It's been the background on my desktop forever.

I hope you guys appricate the car you have, because I really don't think there's any other car like it for the price.

Damn, first the lude now the S2k?

Your lude was one of the nicest/cleanest ones on this site, it was a shame to see it go. Good luck with the CL and hope to see you stick around the forum more. :emthup:

Damn man, it's been forever since we heard from you. Great to see that you're doing well, even though you are driving an old ladie's car ( just kidding ). I loved your Prelude, and I still love it to this day. Sometimes I go back into the picture thread and stare at it for a long time.

I'll go out on a limb and say that your Prelude was the cleanest and best-looking that I have ever seen on any online forum.

It's nice to see you got an S2K. Did you sell your Prelude? How you like the S2K?

Seems like you have more money than everyone on this board combined. :eek:mg:

Those CL's are actually pretty cool IMO. If you're want it to be more like your Lude you could always do an H22 swap. I know it already has the 3.0 V6 but the H22 is just more fun and you can't put a 5spd tranny onto the V6 motor.
