Default Haven't been active in a while but new car!

Whats up guys, haven't been on here in a while but I got a new car!!

Picked it up last friday for only 1700!! My neighbor was selling it to carmax and I stopped him and told him I'd buy it for the same price. Glad I did! (You know you got a good deal when ou buy a car for what Carmax was offerin for it lol)

It has 158xxx on it but is in mint condition. I hand-buffed and waxed it and it looks almost brand new! An I30 selling at private party value with 159000 in "Fair" condition comes up for 4000! This thing is good-excellent which means I can sell it for 4500-5500 if I wanted to! But the thing is so nice and luxurious I'm gonna keep it for a bit B)

Only problem right now is code PO420 which is catalyst flow error so gotta fix that but everything else check out OK. I Inspected it at school before I bought it

The Prelude is still here and I'm still selling it. I might trade it for a bike (turning 18 in 2 months) or just sell it and pay the rest of the car off along with some debts.

Here are some pics

Inspection at school (before wax and buff):

As much as I want to give you Kudos on picking up a real car, that last comment was really lame... STUPID to do 135 in a car you JUST got when you are 17, AND TO TAKE A PICTURE OF IT WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING!!! You get tagged, You go to jail, and you loose your license, no questions asked...

Again, Glad to see you back, AWESOME new find, Please watch the moronic comments like that, I'm sure there are local Police on our boards by now honestly...

There is actually reason to believe that a certain department is viewing the board. Whether or not his post is proof enough to go after him or not is debatable.

I also gave it to a professional driver who took it on a closed track and he hit 135 with plenty left to go!

Not a bad pickup for $1700, that's a good motor? Were they not buying a car from carmax or something? That trade in could have saved them a bit of tax and if they sold it to you for the same carmax offered that wouldn't be that smart.

Nice buy My buddy works at Carmax and he always calls me about people trading in their cars and possibly offering them the same price or a few hundred more than Carmax would offer

glad to know you were fumbling with your cell phone to take pictures of the speedometer while you summed up all of your talent and skill to push the pedal until you were going 135

Compared to his rusty 93, oil burning prelude, this is a 'real' car, one I wouldn't point and laugh at on the road if I saw driving buy like I would have at the prelude pouring smoke out the back of it.

Its not fast, nor special, Just worlds better than his old one.

As if the cars you drive are more "real" than his prelude...
