    My name is Dave and I live in extreme Northern California, a stones throw from the Oregon border. I'm a retired communications engineer of 43 years and have chosen to take on a '98 Prelude as my retirement hobby. I had owned an early '80s Accord that I put over 400,000 miles on. The Accord was a wonderful experience that made the purchase of the my Prelude an easy decision to make.
    My Prelude is 99% stock and only needs a fresh coat of paint to be in overall excellent condition. However, I do plan a few little upgrades and mods to keep myself busy and make the car just that much more fun to drive.
    My other main hobbies are photography and the Premier League ... I have been a Manchester United fan since the 1980. George Best came to my home town to play for the San Jose Earthquakes of the NASL. Because of him, I started following the Red Devils and have been a huge fan since (hope I didn't just make a whole lot of enemies around here).
    I really look forward to contribute where I can and learn from you all.

    Cheers ...

    Amen to that Legend-ary ... I'm going to do a little cosmetic changes like some new wheels and maybe a wing on the boot before I do the repaint and maybe a couple of simple changes to the motor. Nothing major by any means. The car is so well designed to start with, it really doesn't need much to enjoy it like it was intended. Anyway ... thanks much for the kind welcome.

    Welcome to HondaKarma @Hawki :welcome:

    That's a nice little retirement hobby you've got there!

    Don't worry about the Manchester United thing either - many of us have crosses to bear when it comes to football...:forgiven:...mine being Watford.

    Hi Nels and thank you for the wonderful welcome. I am honored you took to time to view some of my work and I would love to share some of my work here. I think I'm going to have a lot of fun here.

    Thanks FirstHonda ... that's actually quite a relief about the MUFC thing, it tends to have a polarizing effect when it slips out.
