Car of the Month: January 2017 - There's No Place Like Home



New year, new Car of the Month contest! With winter weather in full swing, we're keeping things simple for this month's theme: driveway and garage shots. Whether your Acura is parked in your driveway surrounded by snow banks or just sitting next to your significant other's car in the garage, we want to see where your car lives when you're not in it. Simply post a reply in this thread that includes your favorite photo of your Acura in your driveway or garage, and one lucky winner will walk away with an exclusive AcuraZine travel mug (pictured below).





Submissions for the January 2017 Car of the Month are open until Tuesday, January 31. Full contest rules can be found in the PDF attached below. Good luck!

Headlights redone

A pic during the day of my headlights redone and a little front end change up. Painted grill and fogs. Can't wait to drop the car!

The car is actually a 1984 Dodge Conquest also known as the Chrysler Conquest and Mitsubishi Starion ,they were made from 83-89 and have a 2.6 SOHC Turbocharged 4 cylinder engine. That is the car that i traded for my Acura, i paid $1500 for the Conquest and put around $2000 in it bringing it back to life. The Conquest was a all original car with only 58,000 miles on it so it was a very nice very clean car.

i have a build post for the car on a Conquest website with pics of all the work i did to the car.

My new (not really that new, but new to me) Acura 3.2TL needs some work, but mmmmm just look at it. In the words of the great jermey clarkson, I cannot look at the front of one of these without getting sexually excited.

You guys should change the rules and allow users to vote for car of the month rather than you just choosing one.
