2002 Acura RSX for Sale

[11/19/12] – Update It has been sold. She’s coming by to pick it up today. I think she got a great deal – especially with all that I’ve done to it and the great shape it’s in. I just got the front struts done, which was $700 worth of work. …

RSX Seat Covers

My car is a 2002 and I’m at just about 150k now, so the seats are showing signs of age. I searched around and found some seat covers for my RSX that I thought would work well. I’ve tried the $25 ones at Walmart and they didn’t fit well. Also …

1988 Toyota MR2 Supercharged for Sale

The 1988 MR2 is for Sale! Yes, it’s time. I don’t want to store it another winter, so I need to sell it during the summer. It’s tough to sell it. I get compliments on it all the time. We were out last night downtown and I was getting compliments …

This was the second time I’ve gone there and my second time ever on a track. It was great. We had awesome weather (in the 70s and sun).   I was registered in the Intermediate group but I sat in on the Novice lesson again and took the first session …

Heading to the Track Again

I’ll be heading to the track again next week. I’ve been driving the MR2 for the last week and now I’ve switches back to the RSX so that I can get used to driving it. It’s funny how skiing and racing have some similarities. You get trained or take a …

Learning How to Double Clutch

Double Clutch and Heel Toe Driving I plan to go to the race track again this month with the Acura. Part of what I’m working on is double clutching. I can work on this with my normal driving. Here’s a video on how to do it: And then I’ll just …

The MR2 is Alive!

It’s even dirty here and looks good. I guess I have to confess to hooking up the jumper cables the wrong way this spring when it needed a jump. In my defense, the battery IS under the intercooler and I haven’t had the car that long. Anyway, it sat all …

Acura TL Rims for Sale

SOLD! I put them on Craig’s List. These are the ones I thought might fit my car but no way – they would have stuck way out. Oops. My loss is your gain. http://madison.craigslist.org/pts/2461512389.html
