    Bought a little over 2 years ago and used as a daily driver ever since. There were 780 NSXs imported to the US in 1995, mine is number 712. It's hard to tell from pictures sometimes, but the color is Brooklands Green Pearl.

    It is stock except for headers, exhaust, and CAI.

    I've taken it on several long road trips, including a drive from Florida to Maine and back. I've driven the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway twice with it now. This picture is me charging down the Tail of the Dragon in North Carolina.

    I work hard (and spend more than a few bucks) to keep it looking good and running perfectly. The build quality of this car is insane.

    So, that's my baby. I totally love this car and plan to drive it for many years to come.

    Thanks everyone.

    I didn't really have a color preference when I went NSX shopping and just as well since there aren't really that many for sale at any given time that met my other criteria. It has grown on me though. Seems like 90% of NSXs are red or black, so I get to be a little different.

    It had 56K miles when I bought it 2 years ago and has 88K miles now. If I don't hit 100K by the end of the year, I'll be close. I'm driving to Indiana for a week on business next month and get to spend several days in the Smoky Mountains on the way home, so I'm all excited for that. :)

    Wow, nice to see you praising something not turbocharged. I didn't expect you to be a NSX fan.

    Anybody give a shit about more pictures? How about some upskirts? ;)

    The underside of this car fascinates me. I bought a low profile floor jack just so I can crawl around when I wanna. This is the rear suspension.

    What really amazes me is I never wash or try to clean the undercarriage. It's all aluminum, so while it's not shiny it certainly looks clean (not bad for 12 years old). Here is the front suspension.
    [​IMG]

    The different colors on the bolt heads indicate different alloys of aluminum. I've heard that matters for the type of washer to be used so as to mitigate the galvanic effect of different metals on each other.

    Here I am at the end of world...

    Nice ride!! Have you had the typical premature tire wear problems?? Or was the camber/caster problem fixed before you bought it??

    I wouldn't characterize the tire wear as premature or as a problem. The car was designed with a very aggressive suspension that had a side-effect of wearing tires quickly.

    Honda did dial that out a bit after the first few production years. I get about 10,000 miles on a rear set and about twice that for the fronts. In fact, next week I'll be replacing all four tires. This will be the 3rd set of rears and 2nd set of fronts in 2 1/2 years (not counting the tires that came on the car).

    I'm giving the Goodyear F1 GS-D3 a try this time. Hope they're as good as everyone says!

    No, but he's a good ways down the road to making it look like one.

    AFAIK, there were never any LHD NSX-R produced by Honda.
