It was a nice short ride ... havent gone in a while, plus I needed to come back this afternoon to work on some essay for school, anyways on with the pics

First we waited at starbucks for a while for syd to show up ... he said 9:25




Here he is


Fashionably late


hmm when did napa get traffic cameras?


looks like its sell cherries on the side of the highway season


so once we got there we had to do some last minute maintence


and neal had to get his kneepads on which he has trouble with everytime

so then we packed up








did about 2 1/2 hrs of riding or so ... not bad


cruisin back


yet another cherry stand


and this old integra in front of us which I found amusing because it had a VTEC sticker, and honda did not introduce VTEC into the US until 1993 or so, and this car is an 89 or older

Nope, looks like a 87-89. I owned one, hated it, but we won't go there.

You never know what could be under the hood of a honda,
engine swaps are cake in those cars.


Nice pics, looked like a fun day!

believe me its an 86-89 ... the taillights on the second gen integras are red on the bottom and clear / amber on top. Im fairly into imports also and drive a 1991 Civic LX with a SOHC ZC swap. I am a member at automotiveforums.com, superhonda.com, illusiverides.com, and shatter-box.net ... same username on all those sites.

As far as the possiblity of the teg having a swap I doubt it ... the clear coat on the roof was coming off, and the windows were full of bubbling purple tint.

Not as classic as the guys down the street who had a base line mustang with lots of extra plastic trim and several big "Shelby" stickers.
Nice pics. Excellent narration.

Great pics, sounds like a fun day. One thing stood out, though...a pickup truck with a bike rack on the roof? Where I come from, that's like mounting the gun rack on the hood.
