Oh, I definitely got to enjoy it. I've said before, I would have kept it forever if I'd had the money to keep it up. It was a great deal of fun to drive. Mine wasn't anything like the one in the video. It's just that it did require a lot more maintenance than any other car I've owned and when it broke, it tended to break big.

The 2003 Honda Pilot Family Truckster has 204k miles on it and was dying. Replaced it over the weekend with this:



2016 Acura MDX Base, White Diamond Pearl, Parchment interior, 21,350 miles, $28k at CarMax. Thing is immaculate.

Congrats on the MDX. It should be able to challenge the Pilots mileage by the end of its life.

Can't go wrong with an MDX and quite an upgrade from an 04 Pilot.

Boy, you got that right. There's nothing that isn't better on the MDX.

Congrats! Definitely a worthy replacement and I'm sure it will last you just as long, if not longer than the Pilot.

So, today I met up with a long-time friend of mine for lunch. He's very much a hard-core car guy. He's a also a long-time Porsche-phile; he's had a very custom 914 (with a 911 engine) in his stable for many years. Today, he rolls up to lunch in this flawless '89 964 with dozens of subtle but wonderful custom touches. Absolutely fantastic car.

I didn't ask and he didn't volunteer, but I'm pretty sure it's worth every penny he paid. It's really that good.

The picture doesn't really show it, but this one is actually in a color called "Dolphin Grey".

I'm not exaggerating when I say it is an incredibly unique and well-done classic 911. It's not my story to tell, so I won't go into detail, but this car quite literally landed in his lap after he had seen it in a garage in his neighborhood for YEARS.

I'm so jealous of your backdrop.

Car looking good, man...
Nice that you keep up with waxing.
I do it about 3 or 4 times a year in FL. That sun is no joke.

Occasionally, use an off-the-shelf headlight polishing kit.

Does your car get left outside a lot? My car is always garaged at home and at work; I'm sure that has a lot to do with it.
