Default Obligatory New Guy Intro

What's happening TCG!

I'm Nate, 25, from Boston-ish - just moved into Uptown about a month ago. I'm kinda pissed to just be finding out about TCG now, because the tour looks like a great time, but my car's a little...pedestrian. It's all good though, I love wrenching and driving regardless.

Here's my wheels:



2009 Accord EX. Silver on Black, 177,7xx miles, and...



3 pedals! Because I'm addicted to shifting my own gears, even in stop & go traffic.

Anyway, drop a line and say hello - I'll be around and making as many friends as I can.

Cheers!

Welcome Nate! Better finding us later than never. Where in Boston-ish are you from? I went to high school in Westborough.

There's nothing wrong with bringing a pedestrian car! We had a few last year. Come on out!

Welcome! Nothing wrong with pedestrian cars! Just sucks you couldn't get the V6 accord in that vintage with a stick. That would be a fun DD.

No kidding! I say Boston because most people would have no idea where Gardner, MA was, but you probably do! North Central, 15 minutes south of the NH border.

I know right? I test drove an '06 with that combo before I bought this one. Same color combo, Silver on Black with leather and all that - kinda high miles, but I'm used to that (I bought my first car with 182k on the clock, high miles don't scare me one bit). It was FUN - great power and torque, and it handled beautifully. The trouble was, it had this HUGE dent in the side of the rear quarter panel that the dealership straight up spray painted over. You could see the rust underneath. I asked them to fix it, they said no, and then tried some tricky stuff with the price, so I walked.

Then, two months later, I found this and got it for $2,000 off list because of a dealer mistake! So it all worked out.
