So, I have been a HUGE Honda nut for quite some time. I own a forum for the East Coast enthusiasts (www.eastcoasthondas.com), I have owned over 12 Hondas since '09.

Got tired of being hassled by cops so I sold my latest endeavour, my '94 EG Hatchback w/ a Cage, Stanced Wheels, JDM H22a and every bolt on you could imagine.

Decided I wanted a CRV. Only catch, had to be 5spd. After much hunting through 600mile radius of NC, I had only found one in Washington, DC. Problem, guy wanted $5k for it with over 200k on the clock.

Kinda gave up on finding one under $3k (I buy and flip cars, I usually find the greatest deals.). A couple days later, I just so happened to find a '98 5spd on the East Coast of NC.

I thought it was a scam to be honest. Two different pictures, 5spd, and $2,500? Yeah, scam. Well, I sent an email just incase, because after all, who scams on a old ass CRV?

Next day lady calls me about it. :) She couldnt meet until the following weekend, however, I begged her to hold it for me. She said it was a base model and FWD and 5spd. Still wanted it.

Show up to buy it, first thing I look is under the rearend, yup! its a awd. :)

Paid $2500. Only thing it really needs is paint. Honda's red paint has sucked. I have owned several Milano Red and various Honda Red's. Every one has sucked.

Enough babbling:
