Hello all, new to the site. just picked up a 99 5speed awd V as a DD/pick up the kids from school rig. not new to honda. i've owned/ built my fair share of honda's over the years, but no a family man that just cant stay away from them. Not sure of my V's fate but I do have a garage full of left over parts from over the years that are taunting me. so a boosted/lifted V may be in my future. already ordered some springs to experiment with to lift it(600lb/in 10" for the fronts and 500lb/in 12" rears) have some left over coil over sleeve's to play with. took the car on it's first trip yesterday and averaged 26.6mpg over a 200 mile trip so pretty happy with that. anywhoo. just saying hi.

You in the dust storm area then too? That is some nasty stuff when it gets blown up. Never had I pulled off due to weather conditions until I ran into one of those.

Id honestly drive through a white out blizzard multuple times , (and have many times being from Minnesota), then drive into just one of those again.

yes mostly farm land around here and we get that nasty stuff that blows up from picacho/newmans peak area. actually got caught in the haboo a few years back when I was out target shooting. was a very erie feeling, something felt off then I turn around to a giant red wall of dirt. lol
