    1. Is this your first car?
    No. My first car was a Daihatsu Charade GTi which i got when i was 14 years old.

    2. How did you end up with the accord?
    I had a 5th gen before this and had too many problems with that so i decided to go for a new car. Went to the dealership and instantly fell in love with it.
    The title of EX-L helped the buy also lol

    3. When did you first start modifying cars?
    At the age of 16. But it wasn't untill very recently that i had enough funds to heavily modify my accord and have it as much show and track status as i possibly could.

    4. Did you run into any problems along the way when you were modifying stuff?

    Thats the name of the game

    5. What other mods do you have planned for the car?

    That i don't want to reveal as of yet but hopefully will be done by mid summer.

    6. Any other cars you're tinkering with?

    Recently bought a salvaged S2K which is going to be strictly a track car.

    7. What's your favorite thing about your car, specifically? Which money do you feel was your best investment?
    My PSPEC short shifter.

    8. Is there anybody you would like to credit or thank for helping you along the way?
    There are a whole lot of people that i would like to thank for including RIPP modifications, Ron, Andy, John, Brandon, and the entire 6thgenaccord.com community
    that has always helped me out. If it wasn't for you 6ga.com, i would still prolly be a forum lurker with my two toned accord as some of you might recal haha.
