Lowered - Coilovers that adjust to a 4 inch drop. 
Automatic moon roof 
Limo tinted rear windows
0 gauge wire from when the sound system was in. 

I bought a brand new lock cylinder for the car because the car was stolen before and the lock cylinder was busted, but I have not had the lock cylinder welded on. Being the lock cylinder is not the stock cylinder the keys to start the car is different than the one to open the door. The passenger side window track needs to be fixed. The window rolls half way down but will move slowly at times because the track needs to be adjusted. There is a crack on the windshield but will not go any further because it was stopped. The hood of the car has a small hole. I believe the exhaust has a leak but not sure. The pole that holds the hood up was broken. The car was red before and was painted black about 6 years ago. The car has been sitting for about a month and we have tried to start it but the alternator belt is screeching and slipping so the battery is not fully charging. And with the heavy rain it makes the belt slip more. So the car will start but it needs a new alternator belt because it drains the battery and shuts off. I believe the car will start with a boost or with a new alternator belt put in but I have not had the time to put work into it.  This car has never given me any problems when I drove it, I guess being it has been sitting for about a month it just needs some minor work to get it moving. These are small problems as the engine is strong and will run I just don't have the time to put the work into the car like I used to. So the car is being sold as is.

Other than the minor repairs and will run for a very long time! 

If you have any questions let me know!

Honda Accord, Civic are America's most stolen cars

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 14:20:00 EST

The National Insurance Crime Bureau has released its latest Hot Wheels study on the most popular stolen cars and trucks for 2012. The study has changed a bit from past years, with the new findings listing only the make and model of each vehicle, while taking into account all model years in its totals. Previous iterations only focused on the most stolen vehicles of a particular model year, with that make and model not appearing anywhere else on the list so as not to appear to call out a particular car. Confusing, eh? Said another way, in previous studies, if the three most stolen vehicles were the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Belchfire Turbo from Fictitious Motors, only the model year with the highest number of thefts would make the list.
The new study takes all model years into consideration while breaking down the number of vehicles stolen per model year in a full, in-depth report. Separately, the NICB is also listing the top 25 new vehicles stolen in 2012. That list is limited exclusively to model year 2012 entries.
Honda took the top two spots in the most stolen vehicles list, with 58,596 Accord models stolen and 47,037 Civic models stolen. The study is interesting, though, in that the most recent model year for the Accord is 1997, while the most recent the Civic is 2000. In fact, Hondas from 1990 to 2000 make up 16 of the top 20 cars stolen in 2012, according to the NICB. Compare that with the MY2012 list, where Honda's vehicles are eleventh and fifteenth, and it looks like the Japanese brand has been beefing up its theft control.

Watch this LSR Honda Insight crash at 190 mph in the desert

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 20:00:00 EST

Like any form of motorsports, attempts at breaking land speed records are inherently dangerous. To wit: During a recent speed competition at El Mirage dry lake beds in southern California, racer Brian Gillespie and his first-gen Honda Insight crashed at nearly 190 miles per hour, and it was all caught on video.
According to the Southern California Timing Association website, which hosts the event, the weather was good and there was no wind on November 10, so it isn't clear what may have caused the crash. Despite the car being destroyed (including the entire front end being sheared off), Gillespie suffered only "minor injuries" and is recovering. The SCTA site does state that Gillespie managed to crack the 200-mile-per-hour mark in a previous run with a top speed of 200.9 mph, so congratulations to him on that! Scroll down to watch the horrifying crash.

Honda Performance Development reveals new ARX-04b LMP2 coupe

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 08:01:00 EST

Make no mistake about it: Honda is big in racing. It was the first Japanese automaker to enter Formula One, remains the most successful and is set to return as an engine supplier next season. It's powered more IndyCar race winners and champions than any other manufacturer, hands down. Honda has won races and titles in Super GT, WTCC, even motorcycle racing. Just about everything this side of NASCAR, really. And that includes endurance sports car racing.
In fact Honda Performance Development prototypes claimed over 70 victories and numerous titles in the American Le Mans Series, and took the first LMP2 title in the FIA World Endurance Championship. And with sportscar racing in the US now grouped together into the United SportsCar Championship, Honda is back with a new chassis design.
Called the ARX-04b, it's Honda's first closed-cockpit LMP2. Like previous LMP2 and IndyCar projects, it's a joint development between HPD and Wirth Research, and packs Honda's HR28TT engine - a 2.8-liter twin-turbo V6 based on (and using many of the same components as) the J35 engine you'd find in a contemporary Acura. Designed to exceed the latest safety regulations, the ARX-04b features low-drag bodywork, quick-change front and rear panels, the same locking fuel filler system that Honda pioneered for Indy, top-exit exhaust to meet noise regulations, a 75-liter fuel tank and a gearbox that can easily be optimized for individual circuits.
