    Default Sam's Accord Type R

    So as you may know, Sam (the wife) bought Walkden's ATR.

    After coming from 2 Evo's i was worried she wouldn't enjoy it as she is used to high power figures and the feel of Turbo. I can safely say she is loving every minute of it, even though she's got get used to thrashing a car now to get the best out of it.

    We gave it a good claying today and a wax. Some pics and a few before and afters.

    Thought I'd better update this for once.

    Generally it's been great.
    We have had to shell out some cash to keep her running but with 93k on the speedo it's not a shock.
    Its in great condition for its mileage and as long as we keep up the maintenance then I can see it running for a long time.

    It's slower than my old DC5 but I'm still having fun, recently had to have the drop links done as I could hear banging while driving it. Thought it was the exhaust hanger had broken and the exhaust was loose.

    50 later and it's ready to go again.

    I'm really rather impressed that it was Sam (the wife as you so succinctly put it) took the photos. Both of them are keepers.

    Accord for '85 civic, straight up? It's like the lady-parts of all civics.

    Mark, tell Sam it seems strange looking at her arse with clothing in the way.
    Last night I reached for my liquid Viagra and accidentally swigged from a bottle of Tippex. I woke this morning with a huge correction.

    I would be lying if I say it's not crossed my mind before but I'm waiting for a warm summer. Or hell to freeze over.
