I'm the same way. I know it has its faults, but when I hear the "snick" into first gear and the engine gun -- I'm all smiles again. :D

Also, after 6 years of driving auto, I'm still surprised that I'm driving stick...o_O

I know what you mean. Ive been driving old Caprices for the last 7 years...never thought I'd be driving a Honda. I got over the whole "American rear wheel drive is superior to anything else" mentality and enjoy my 8 airbags, mp3cd player, aux port, temp gauge, 2 doors, cold ac, sunroof....etc.

Of course any of this could be done to a Caprice...but at least its not stuck in a shop somewhere....its already brand new....*first brand new car*...can you tell?

Someday when I start my career I will get back the old "highschool" muscle car Caprice.

I figured after going through *since 1999* a 94 cavaliver, 91 caprice, 81 caprice, 99 tahoe and 96 Caprice...and $35k(cost to buy and mod/repair)....I should have bought a freaking car like this back in 2000.....Id have a 7 year old car with about 60k because I average 8-9k/year on a car. Would have been out 30-35k anyways...but with a car with good resale value...not $2000 even though the Caprice has a brand new engine and many mods done. =/

I feel the same way. Everytime I walk up to my car, I get a great feeling of excitement inside and can't help but saying (out loud) "damn, my car is SO nice". Then sliding into my driver's seat and cranking the engine...it's music to my ears.

I've had my Si since Nov, and every time I go out to drive it, I still do the "walk around", and admire it's beauty (and also to check for scratches/door dings). It's been the best, and nicest Honda I've had to date (out of three), and I intend to own it, and enjoy it for many years to come...unless somebody gives me a new GTR:biggrin:

i dont get to enjoy mine...cause im always trying to look for faults....

as in WHY IS it IDLING louder...

why do I feel a feather vibration while idling without AC ?

Did I screw up my valves while redlining it last night ?

Although the car drives great.... I look for faults...

But I do enjoy its looks while im not driving it.
