Just turned 63.7k miles on the ODO; 3.2k of those are mine. Will be driving down to the Outer Banks in North Carolina in mid-June and then maybe to Pittsburgh, PA later in the summer. Here's a recent shot from her first long road-trip to Cape Cod.... She ran like a champ, averaging 33 mpg over 1,200 miles.

This is my 08 Acura TL Base Navi with 130k. I will be taking it to Import Alliance Tennessee in July. Excited for another nice long weekend cruising to a huge car show with friends to see other peoples rides that share the same passion as i do!
