History
I bought this 6th generation Accord in January of 2007 with 74,000 miles. I originally wanted black but the paint was so good on the car I bought it with cash and brought it home. Started modifying it in 2008, and since then it has continued stealing from my wallet. I was lucky to avoid the auto transmission failure that plagued these cars, and it was still strong when I pulled it out at 133,000 miles, as was the 3.0L motor (200hp). In June of 2011 the car underwent surgery at which point it was given a 3.2L motor out of a 2003 Acura CL Type-S (265hp), mated with a 6spd manual transmission from a 2006 Accord. The new drivetrain had about 38,000 miles when it went in. It continues to be a solid daily driver and keeps me smiling.

Exterior-wise the only other thing I would do is get a little body work done, and a respray. Right now I am focusing on an interior project.
