'96 Honda Accord, 188K, Most power options (No sunroof or powerseats)

It needs a little washing and everything, water is low here so it won't get a GOOD one for a little bit. No interior shots, I just vacuumed it, needs shampooing :s And needs just misc. things that don't really matter for this topic, haha. $3500

And ignore the trashy background, yard is in progress >.>

I would've posted in the GDT.... but, it would've taken the page forever to load, so here. :D

Heh, thanks. The nasty front spot is from the license plate locater, I hated that. And I don't have to worry about him, he's lazy. xD

But speaking of wheels.. anyone wanna donate to my fund of buying them? 1million tgtap monies for $500 IRL? :D

So, what's first (after you clean it properly).

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

Timing belt, tires / brakes, muffler, inspection. In that order, I think.

And so it begins...

You'll learn a lot taking care of your first, but if you live to be 100, the first one will probably always be your favorite.

Hey, my uncle has an Accord! And it's missing a hubcap!

Seriously, though. Good job on your new car. It sure beats what I'm gonna get.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

Yeah, I'm gonna keep stock things up first, then go on from there. Probably just an intake to get rid of the nasty looking airbox. It's gonna be around 2K for nice wheels / tires / tein coilovers. Then tint and a cd player. I'm gonna have a good bit into this car, but meh, why not be stupid with money while I can?

Of all the dumb things, watch yard sales. I've found a few deals that way. Your car is common enough, you might be in for
a real surprise what you could buy for under $50.

A junk yard might be a little steep on some things, but do you have any scrap yards (scrap yard will just crush the cars for
the scrap value). They have to pay to get rid of tires so they'd be inclined to make a deal.

Beats paying $2K for a set of wheels.

$500 for wheels (Something nice, I'm wanting Rota's. Knockoffs, but not terrible wheels by far)
$500 for nice tires
$750 for Tein basic coilovers

Plus shipping / mounting everything.


BTW, how would I get that stuff off the front bumper? It's going away right now just from where it's been raining.

Watch your car magazines. Various Mustangs have run ads for sets of wheels & tires for around $900 - mounted, balanced &
shipped in the US. I think I've seen 16"s as low as $700.

Better yet, start here -

Yeah, I could go wheel and tire package. 16's shouldn't be bad, they're an inch bigger than the ones it's rolling on now. + coilovers = nice handling. Though, first thing I should get for it is a damn rear swaybar. It doesn't come stock with one >.< Not that I saw of anyway.

Go with a bigger rear swaybar than front swaybar ... then you'll get some decent oversteer.

If I could find the parts, I was thinking of going with bigger swaybars from a Taurus SHO ... but coluldn't find any.

Inspection and muffler done. Looks nice, and inspection was at a little service station, if you know what I'm saying. Timing belt Friday, and tires Friday or Saturday.


And yeah, it turns into a truck to haul fat chicks. :lol:
