just filling you in, the timing belt is usually changed after someone beats the piss out of a car. you might wanna have a good mechanic give a once over on your engine, just to be safe.

AAAAActually it's recommended on Honda's and most other cars to change your belt and pump once you hit 100,000 miles

Yeah actually on Hondas i was reading that you should have your timing belt changed at least every 70,000 miles on every honda/acura and i plan on getting 16in rims and lowering it a lil bit and then gettting a stock accord spoiler

#12

It seems weird at first, but all of sudden it's no big deal. It's good to be able to drive stick.

have you killed it in traffic yet? that REALLY sucks..I did it when the light turned green once.. I felt so stupid starting my car back up to take off.

once you've driven a stick for a few months your feet will automatically move and your hand will put the shifter in place automatically..you dont really even think about it..its so cool, and its always nice to know how to drive stick.
#16
yeah ive killed it a few times not when the light turned green or naything really noticible but i think im getting better but it keeps you more awake than driving auto which is a good thing for me at least

Not really... timing belt and water pump is like $200, MAYBE $300.

I always felt so dumb whenever that would happen (happened a couple times). Like, at first people would be mad, but when I got it started and drove by them they felt bad for me because my face would always be bright red and I probably looked like my eyes were popping out of my head.

I've got a '94 accord, the interior looks just like yours. mine has about 225k miles on it, and it's had no major problems yet. You've got a good car there, just take care of it.

I only stalled in traffic once, driving a stick is second nature to me now. I love it. I dont think I'm gonna go back to automatic to be honest.

No, I drive a '98 Wrangler. Once I pay that off, probably next year, I'm gonna buy a C-5 Corvette.

As far as stick goes, my Wrangler's a 5 speed. I didn't know how to drive stick when I bought it. The next day, I drove it to work. Just remember, you know how the gas and brake work, just concentrate on the clutch

Looks like a good car you've got there.
Manual = Fun
4 door = Practical
Honda = Reliable

I'm a firm believer that your first car should be something to remember, not just a form of transportation.

Alright, well the reason I asked is because my former roomates (best friend and girlfriend) just graduated from college. They work at Target and Walgreen's (best friend at target and his lady at Walgreen's) and they already got a nice condo and they have been buying stuff like crazy. To add to this, they have bought a brand new car, along with a used car that set them back a bit, but I cannot figure out how they are affording all of this. I know, it's their life, but it seems a bit strange that they can afford all of this.

This relates to you because I know you work at a law firm (right?) and I thought that if you were working a REAL job and you and your wife were still sharing a car that it might clear their situation up.

Sorry for questioning you on your business man.

Driving a stick is some kinda like unspoken group it seems..I dont know if its just me but when I walk past cars I tend to look in to see if its a stick.

There's only a few kids at my school with cars that are a stick mine a civic, and a mustang are the ones I can remember...kinda sad everyone drives automatic now. 5speeds are 10 times more fun.

Heh, I do that too.
I hold so much more respect for men that drive manual :P

I dislike people who disregard it as an option entirely, people who don't even attempt it that is.

Lol i drive a stick, the thing i hate about it the most is when your revs are to low. so you get the "chug-chug-chuga- chuga-chugachuga-Vrrrrroooooooooom!"

or when your going to fast to change down a gear and you like... lock up the wheels and get jerked forwards...

yeah, i'm a **** driver but i'm only learning!

Here's my first car, a 1985 Toyota MR2 5-speed. I got it about 3 months ago, it's ok for a 15 year olds first.
Not an exact pic either.
