Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
I find myself driving slow when I enter a school zone or when I see a car that could possibly be law enforcement.

Why did you pick the car you own?
From the 1st time I saw an Nsx at the dealership in 1991 this was the car i knew I had to own and has always been my dream car

Tell us a little about this build:
I have always been very passionate about cars. As a kid I had a subscription to Hot Rod magazine and loved muscle cars. I had thought one day I would build a 67 Camaro or maybe a 57 Chevy. Once i was old enough to drive I bought a 1977 Toyota Pick up for $800. I drove it so hard with 200k on it and it ran perfect. I then got hooked on imports and realized how well they were built. When i turned 18 I got my first Honda which was my 1st and only new car i have ever owned to this date. I bought a 1995 Civic Dx coupe. I modded it as much as a could with little parts available on the market. I put 16″ rims on it and at the time nobody thought you could fit a 16 on a car that came with 13’s. That should tell you how the scene was then. LOL. I was hooked on Honda’s from then on. Next I got a 94 Vtec prelude but didnt keep it too long. In 2000 I bought a bare 1995 Civic coupe shell. I wanted to build a fast FWD car and at that time there were very few. After about 2 years i ended up with 700+whp and was running low 10’s. The car turned into a money pit and I was ready for a change. I bought my next favorite car the S2000 and sold my Civic for a HUGE loss. The S2000 was and still is one of the favorite cars i have every owned and I met some great friends during my ownership. I still always wanted the Nsx. Everytime i saw one I would go crazy because you never see them. I had some tragic things happen in my life and realized how short life can be. I had the opportunity to finally get my dream car the Nsx. I had always wanted an Nsx. It’s a japanese Ferrari to me. I had already owned a really fast car so I didnt care if the Nsx was slow. The GTR is great performing car but I love shifting gears and light weight cars so I never thought twice about the Nsx. I found my car in Rhode Island and flew up there and drove it home. I have since built it to just how I wanted it. I plan on keeping this one for a long time. Every time I walk into my garage and see this car sitting there it almost doesn’t seem real and I think how lucky I am to be able to own it. -Ron
