Welcome to another edition of Daily, Garage, Sell, JNC‘s version of Bang, Marry, Kill. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, you any glance at the local bookstore magazine shelf was sure to reveal at least one Honda cover car. Not only were they the choice of tuners, they seemed to take whatever horsepower or weight in bodykit bondo thrown at them. And to the normals, they were reliable transportation as well. Whether driven by the neighborhood little old lady or ripping drags down the street near the industrial park, the iconic nameplate of CRX, Civic, and Integra offered something for everyone. Now you must choose, and for the purposes of this game you can choose your trim level, but they must max out at Si or GS-R (sorry, no SiR Type Rs — that’s for a future round). So without further ado:
Daily, Garage, Sell — Honda CR-X Si, Honda Civic Si, or Acura Integra GS-R?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What’s JNC life like with a baby?”
We received a lot of good advice this week, and the running theme seems to be, don’t sell your beloved JNC because of the baby. Banpei, Luke, Dennis BD, and emuman all cautioned against it, as did our winner, Chase, who gave us the most reassuring words a new father can hear, as well as a good chuckle:
Words of wisdom? Hope you have some STA-BIL and a battery tender! Those will be the next two upgrades to your JNC (if not already).
In all seriousness there’s nothing to be anxious about when bringing a kid into the world as a car guy with an already needy baby on four wheels. First few weeks car will probably sit untouched as you re-calibrate your new daily routine. Get a schedule locked down and find time to slip away into the garage for wrenching, cleaning, or maybe a quick cruise around. It’s good to get away sometimes as you yourself are trying to acclimate to this life change too.
The life balance between the two is different for everyone. Just remember babies don’t stay little forever, and your JNC will be there when you’re ready for it.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
