Stunning love the colour and those arches it must be killing you not being able to use it at the moment

Yep, that's a beauty. The colour is fantastic. Really suits it.
Thanks very much for the comments. Apologies for the slow reply. Yes I hadn't seen Graphite Blue before. It jumped out at me from the classifieds, amongst all the blacks, silvers and greys (the car looks great in these colours too). The unusual blue and cream interior really 'works' as well.

Had this delivered a few weeks ago from Torque GT, a 2001 DC5 Integra which is completely standard (aside from having an alarm fitted!). Treated it to a wash and wax since I can't really take it for a spirited drive/track day yet hehe


Sorry for bumping, seemed a shame for the thread to get forgotten about!

What a lovely car that is.... remember fondly test driving one back in the day. The absolute best front drive car I’ve ever driven. Just thought it would have been a bit wearing to use daily and on the motorway, but can’t think of a better weekend toy. Off to the classifieds....

Thanks! With lockdown I haven't had much chance to drive it on some decent roads yet but it's doing the daily duties pretty well. OEM suspension is probably a little too hard for potholed UK roads but has a huge boot and is even pretty good on petrol (provided it's not constantly in VTEC hehe )

In the spirit of keeping the thread alive, this is my latest toy.

The pics were taken a couple of years ago when it was owned by someone else, but don't have an upodated one as yet

The hope of some post lockdown miles had me reminiscing over some of my past and present loves...... apologies for the lack of variation in the colours!

basic tuned 350SBC 425bhp so a lower powered version than some but a helluva lot of fun at less than a ton in weight lol

easy at mot time too, no emissions crap to worry about, and a lovely induction roar from the holley carb

Couple of Pistonheaders local to me in South Shields, anyone want to show themselves?

Silver 350Z in Westoe and a silver Volvo V70 I see absolutely all over Shields?

I am in the really sheddy mk4 Golf with a PH sticker on the bootlid!

Dodgepot we seen your car at that car event near Beamish. In fact you can see my little boy walking up to it. It was one of his favorite cars on the day. Lovely thing. Hopefully if that event ever happens again we will see it again.
