    Here it is, the Car of the Month 'Christmas Edition.' :Xmas:

    We've got some more great nominations for members to peruse while they (probably!) eat and drink far too much over the festive period.

    Please do GET INVOLVED by commenting and voting on this thread - you never know, next month, if you update your garage entry and tell us about your car - it could be your car that is nominated.

    The vote this month will be open for 2 weeks, as it is the holiday season, so there is no excuse for not looking through the garage entries for each nominee, and voting for your favourite.

    Without further ado, and in no particular order, the nominees for December are:

    1. @Kris81 with his 7th Generation Accord.

    http://hondakarma.com/garage/kris81-k24-cl9.531/

    Apart from a very thorough project log and garage entry, this nominee shows what a good plan for both performance and cosmetic upgrades looks like - without necessarily breaking the bank! This is a fantastic looking Accord, and thoroughly deserves nomination for COTM.

    2. @numpty67 with his 1982 Prelude.

    http://hondakarma.com/garage/honda-Prelude-sn-1982.21/

    I don't think I need to spend too long explaining why this car has been nominated. Again, it has a comprehensive project log and garage entry with loads of great pictures. Cars like this - when looked after like this, and shared with others - give most of us a nostalgic feeling, with the 'when did I last see one of those' question. A great car, and well deserving of nomination for COTM.

    3. @2.4 8thGen with his 8th Generation Accord.

    http://hondakarma.com/garage/2-4-beast.850/

    There is a lot of love for the 8th Generation Accord, especially the 2.4 version. This nomination shows what a difference subtle modifications can make to an already great car, and the value of really looking after it. Most of the mods here are OEM, and should give inspiration to other owners, showing exactly what can be achieved. A well deserved nomination, and if it is your favourite then you know what to do...

    4. @Sadsack with his Legend.

    http://hondakarma.com/garage/2007-honda-legend.243/

    This nominee doesn't have a thorough project log - after all, what else do you need to add to a Legend?! Nominated simply because it is a great car, in great condition, and obviously loved and treasured. Many of us here would love to own a Legend at some point, and garage entries like this only serve to increase that desire!

    5. @legend-ary with his Jazz.

    http://hondakarma.com/garage/katto.825/

    The last nominee from a very varied bunch for December. So, why have we nominated a 'humble' Jazz? Well, read through the garage entry and you'll see that this is a great example of keeping an older Honda on the road, sharing hints / tips and repairs with other members, and gradually making improvements. Cars like this are often ignored, but they shouldn't be - one day we'll notice how few of them we still see, and cars like this that have been looked after may still be around.

    That's it for December. As they say, the choice is now yours...congratulations to all the nominees. And good luck!

    :congratulations::goodluck:

    Thanks guys for the nomination.
    My cars a bit poorly at the min as need the new Rad.
    So hopefully will be on the road in Jan and ready for another mod.
    Not sure what else to do as yet maybe a new set of alloys.
    I'm quite liking the black Honda 18 " wheels but can't think of there name as there are 2 Iv seen.
    - - - Updated - - -
    Got them the wheels are inferno or nitrogen
    Not sure what black will look like though on a silver car.

    ^^ IMHO you can't beat the Sigmas that you already have - especially on a silver 8th Generation.

    True but getting a bit bored of these now so thinking about a change.
    Also might consider delta alloys

    Hi Guys and a big thanks for the nomination. Have not had much to report on the the old girl recently , thankfully :Smile:. The car is running and driving so well I'm just enjoying her while I can before she goes off the road for the winter, away from all that nasty salt.

    Good to see the COTM back up and running, have been casting my votes over the last couple of months, love the new format, a wee bit of history about each car to help you choose, well done to all involved.:clap:

    Good luck to all the nominees.:goodluck:
