Want me to fax you a copy of the title?

Of course I own one, it is not that big of deal. You find one make money and buy one cash.

If you are driving less than a NSX find out how to make more $$ and start living a real life.




When I think about all the working people busting thier ass to make ends meet I get teary eyed. :bash

That's cool, Mr. Douchebag.
BTW, I fixed your rep for you.

You just told a guy with a ~1000 hp Supra, a guy with a ~450 hp Z06, and a previous owner of a '98 NSX that they are "mutants". All of them, BTW, have positive reps in the thousands (which is a direct result of them having a fucking clue)... while you are well into the red.

Every time I think to myself "Man, that ignorant motherfucker couldn't say something more retarded", you prove me wrong. At this point, I am fairly sure that a bag full of pencil shavings would double your score on an IQ test.
AHAH.. you bring life to words... a true comic indeed... :aww:D

Oooh.... 27 mpg out of a 270 hp 3.0L V6!! How impressive. Let me clean my underwear now.
BTW, my car does BETTER (28 mpg) stock w/ a 405 hp 5.7L V8. Dumb shit. And that's not even getting into the 30+ mpg I routinely get with the intake/exhaust uncorked, while making 450+ hp.

I do, also, find it interesting that I am a

and you are


When YOU can't even manage to spell or form coherent sentences.




At the end of the day, you can drive around in your 14 year old poor man's pseudo-exotic thinking you are "one of the Elite" and are so much faster and better than everyone... and we can all point and laugh at the dumb shit with a slow OLD car. Contrary to your beliefs, I would not suddenly become a more important person had I lowered myself to buying a VASTLY SLOWER, CHEAPER, and a whole decade OLDER car. Nor do I currently give two shits about the opinions some 21 year old ignorant ricer who barely affords such a car. Especially when they are as laughably fucking stupid as you are.


WOW........ speechless... owned !!! its old but shit... owned !!!

Don't worry for the NSX

^^^^

Very good post, I see your points and you weren't bashing at all.

I'll add a little summary of my own opinion of the two cars. Hopefully Nathan approves :) I have to start at the beginning though and work my way forward (this may be long).

I'm speaking from direct experience and I can confidently say I'm probably one of the biggest NSX fans on this forum. I've followed that car since Honda whispered about it's development in the late 80's (I was in 9th grade). I worked at several different Honda / Acura dealers. Conversely, my father was a Chevy sales manager for a long while and I've been around Vettes and the like for a good part of my childhood.

With that said, the NSX completely rocked the world when it was introduced. I could string out so many points that many of you have never heard of and bore you all to death. BUT, the bottom line is it's not 1991 anymore. It kills me to see what Honda did (or didn't do) to the NSX and I'm almost happy to see it go. Honda should be ashamed at the fact that it designed a car so superior to it's rivals and then let it become stale and underpowered while the competition "matured". The last year I would say the NSX was competitive was 1997. I was working for Porsche at the time and the car was still basically on par with the 993 (non-turbo). Once the 996 and the newer C5s came out the NSX had completely lost it's performance edge. All my last remarks were in regards to performance and there are people who would differ with me.... let them, I've been around more NSXs then anyone on this forum (I'm fairly certain that's a fact) and I've run with plenty of Vettes in my own NSX. Just recently I remember arguing with a NSX member at Limerock about the NSX versus a C5 Z06. My point was that there is no way on a performance standpoint that a 2nd gen. NSX could stay with a Z06. He argued with me tooth and nail, but when you look at the figures it's simple. The Z06 has far more HP and it's just about the same weight!! It's better in every performance category! Now, I will also tell you that if you throw me in a NSX and your average driver in a Z06 I will easily stay with him, or pass him. That's for a different reason though, the NSX is extremely easy to drive, numbers don't do the car any justice because it's simple for a driver to extract 90-95% from it. A Z06 on the other hand has a higher performance envelope, but it takes a more skilled driver to reach those levels. This is why I have photos of NSXs passing Z06s on the front straight on WGI, not because the NSX is faster it's because some of the Z06 drivers suck ass. I tell this same story every time I get into this argument, the Z06 is faster, but on a back country road the NSX will probably stay with it because it's so easy to drive fast. It's so easy that I can't even describe it in words.

So after all of that, it kills me to see what happened to that car. Honda did it such an injustice. I'm sick of hearing how Honda was losing money and they couldn't afford to upgrade the car. If that's the case they should have ended it's production and let it go admirably. Then I would have to sit here and defend it every other day on friggn' STi forums.

Now, why is it a great car still....

1) Fit and finish is second to none. I've had mine apart, it's insane!! the build quality is something to marvel at....seriously!!

2) It's super comfortable, sure some of you say you don't care. However, you would if you drove as much as I did. I took my NSX to Florida from New Jersey and I can say it was one of the most comfortable cars I've ever made the trip in (tie with my 04' TL).

3) It's all aluminum. Hell, I'm buying another one almost for this fact alone. Many of you know I like to hold on to my cars :) The NSX will NEVER rust. The entire car is Al. Even the damn jack they give you to change the tire is aluminum. Take a look at some of the 1991 NSXs, they look brand new, no shit!! After spending 38K restoring a CRX it's a shame to think I'll have to put it back in the shop in 10 years because it's rusting again, plus when I do I'll never find a JDM front end again. That sucks!!

4) There's not many around. I had the only NSX in my county (and I live in Jersey!!) I've seen more Ferraris on the road then NSXs. To some this doesn't matter, but I loved it. I don't like to blend, and I also don't like to stand out like a sore thumb. For this the NSX was perfect it didn't scream look at me, but it demanded respect. Even the pure haters look when they see an NSX, why? because they forget how cool they look (although they usually never admit it).

5) Reliability, I don't know how many people here have had a Ferrari, but until the 360 Modena they were called "engine out cars". What that means is when you need to do a major service the engine needs to come out and that's huge $$$$. You may say who cares, if you own one you can afford it, that's very wrong. The NSX is a Honda at heart, it's so easy to work on and after a hard day at the track she still idles and runs smoothly on the highway home, always composed, always ready to go to Blockbuster and pick up some movies :) I drove my NSX 35,000 miles in the 2 years I owned it and I had absolutely zero problems with it, and let me tell you they were HARD miles. I abused the shit out of that car, and she loved it!!

6) They're one of a kind, born to be a classic. If you pick one up now (they're getting cheaper) they will be worth something one day. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Hemi Dodges are pulling big bucks these days and do you know how many were out in the 60's?? Now imagine a car that only sold around 200 per year over it's life.... do the math. and remember all aluminum, they're going to last!!

I don't know what else to say, I'm gonna end up with pages, so I'll just stop now.

In closing you can't compare these two cars, you just can't so people should just stop. The NSX is in a league of it's own, and I'm not saying to the Vette. I mean to the Ferrari, Porsche, Lotus, Vette, CRX, and EVERYTHING else!!! It will always be a car that redefined what an exotic car SHOULD be and it changed the sports car forever. The Italians finally realized that the days of making unreliable shit boxes were long over and Japan is gonna start wiping their asses with prancing horses if they don't shape up.....and they did. Ferrari started making better, faster, more reliable cars and what did Honda do......... nothing!! Damn Honda, the NSX should have had a V10 long ago!!

Kar and I will forever miss Eileen.......







Just had to add a few lines to your words of wisdom. I completely agree with all your sentiments about Honda and the NSX but owning an NSX is a bit like a religion, your born to do it and although there are more powerful or popular mantras out there, you will always come back to it. The NSX is just fine in Hondas hands and believe me they dont often disappoint their "believers". ;)
