Hi All. Just joined this forum yesterday. Firstly, i won't bore you with too much info about myself. AS you can read my profile if your really bored.But basically, i have worked in the motor trade all my working life, mostly selling cars, & caravans , & motorhomes. Any way, i have sold a few honda cars, but never owned one till now. Which is suprising, as i am a real petrol head. As well as owning a couple of modern cars, i also own several classic cars & a couple of jap import cars, various motor bikes, & a few scooters, inc a couple of old lambrettas, & a very rare classic motorhome. Told you i was a petrol head. Any way last weekend i bought a honda that i have admired for years. This paticular car i have been trying to buy for the last 6 months. The garage on the east coast where i live, where i get my MOT done, had on the day i was there this very car in for MOT. The mechanic who brought it in, said it belonged to a old customer of his. I asked him if it was for sale, & would he give his customer my mob no. Months went by but i never got a call from him. Any way 6 moths later i am driving through this small town on the coast not too far from where i live, & i see the very said car.It was parked outside his house. Turns out the mechanic never gave him my mob no. Rotter.... Suffice to say, after a test drive i bought it. Must be fate. I think sometimes things are meant to be. Its a 1993 honda Del Sol. Its the 1.6 DOHC VTEC sir transtop manual gearbox model. Its the jap import which as im sure you know. 170 BHP, with a VTEC controller fitted. Metallic blue, with white after market alloys fitted, & with 6 months MOT. A little rust in the usual places. The rear wheel arches & both doors. But have seen much worse. Its going into the paint shop hopefully next week. The painter i use is very good. Turns out the old chap was only selling it, due to ill health, as he was finding it hard to get in & out of. What i also like is the fact that he as owned it for nearly 9 years, & every thing works on it, inc most importantly, the transtop. I am really looking forward to getting out & about in it, & hopefully meeting up with some of you. Sorry for such a long introduction, & thanks for taking time out to read this. Regards. John.
