VEHICLE STORY

In May of 2015, a ruthless hail storm rolled through Southeast Missouri and murdered my 2006 5-speed Scion tC.  It was on that day that I came to have an ill opinion of fixed glass roofs.  Thanks to American Family Insurance, I had enough money left over to purchase this black beauty of mine (Chaw reference).  A lot of people overlook the Accord's capabilities (I was one of those people).  Like most FWD cars, it does have that undesirable understeer, but these things absolutely haul off the line.  I was pleasantly surprised with the power of the 3.5 liter engine.  The car won't be winning any track days, but I think it's hilarious when I shut down 90's and early 2000's Mustang GT's from stoplight to stoplight.  I haven't had a chance to slam a bunch of upgrades on to the car, but the warranty will be up soon and the tasteful mods will commence.  This car won't have anything too balls-out strapped to it, I'm saving that project for a RWD car that I plan to purchase as soon as I graduate from college.
