Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
I wouldn’t call it unusual. It was 3rd on the list of cars I was able to own at the time.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
There was definitely more work done to the car than I anticipated.

2000 Honda Prelude On Air Suspension

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
Unique? …yeah, I guess so. I have floor mount pedals and no brake booster. You don’t see that too often. And for rare parts, I have a Greddy header, oil filler cap and Spoon Strut bars front and rear.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
I do not consider the car done. Still have a “to do” list.

Modified 2000 Honda Prelude

What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
Biggest problem was some of the wiring, especially the interior engine harness part. And I still can’t get my reverse light to come on haha.

If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
Probably not. Would want to work on a VIP car.

2000 Honda Prelude With Rims

Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?
I do hangout with a bunch of friends that are into cars too and doing so, my car is a bit more functional than what I first was going for. Shout out to FITTEDTHO.

Custom 2000 Honda Prelude

Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
Yeah, the suspension. Starting off with factory struts then upgrading to aftermarket coilovers then to airbags. I’ve reinstalled that suspension quite a few times.

What is your favorite part on your car?
My favorite part would be between the Spoon upper strut bar and the GReddy oil filler cap.

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
Best memories are of meeting the people I am still close to, even after doing car stuff.
