My first car was a base model Integra sedan the same vintage as myself (1994). Even though it was pretty rough and was an automatic, I really enjoyed that car.

Ever since I moved on from that car, I've always secretly wanted another. If the timing was better, I'd jump on this.

Thank you! It is a fantastic car. I will leave the ad up here for a few weeks. If no one in GRM family wants it, I will take the ad down. I don't particularly want to deal with craigslisters.

I will skip all the maintenance from 0-100k miles, but every maintainenance was done by the book. In addition to the 3,000 mile changes, 15k, 30k, 45k, 60k, 75k, and 90k services were all done.

Perhaps the most impressive thing is that it lived in CA and was never stolen

Blame it on the beige.

It's been garaged at CalTech all its life during the day, and at night at home :)

Trying to thin the herd. Love the car. Was at 11. Told wife would get down to 8. Which I did. Then added 2, back up to 10. 
 

goal this year to get down to 5. 
 

for me all has to be garaged and pristine. I don't want anything outside at all

Wow, i'm extremely disappointed in myself for missing this. This car was so far up my alley it almost hurt. Now i don't even get to know what it went for. I'd probably just be more unhappy. lol.
