Can you believe we’re halfway thru March already! With time flying by so fast, we’ll jump right in!
As most Acura enthusiasts know, March is Acura’s anniversary month. Last year I produced a short video with friend & fellow Acura enthusiast Tyson Hugie of drivetofive fame, called Dueling Acuras featuring my TSX & Tyson’s 94 Legend coupe (which is now over 550,000 miles! I enjoyed making that video very much & wanted to do another one. This time I wanted to work with more Acura fans & from all over the country.
The following video is the result of several Acura owners contributing photos & video to make this happen. The end result is a fun 4 minute celebration of our cars & love of the Acura brand.
There was some confusion by some that all the Acura’s in the video were all members of the 500k mile club. There are actually only two, mine & Tyson’s 94 Legend Coupe. With luck, all the others will also join the 500k club one day.
I recently had the 530k oil change preformed & also replaced the last coil pack.
Coming up really soon is the Torque Converter Seal replacement. It’s a biggie! Parts aren’t bad at all, but it’s the labor that will kill me! But as you can see, it’s not real pretty & needs attention…
I could also go for a new splash shield. You can’t see it in this picture, but the opposite corner is barely hanging on. Chris had to put an extra washer on just to keep it in place. What you can tell by the looks of the splash shield, is that the 530,000 miles on my car are not always easy miles. True, I drive a lot of freeway, but I also drive lots of dirt roads, mountain roads, snow, ice, mud… just about any condition you can think of, Idaho has it to offer & this old TSX has been thru it!
Believe it or not, I have been running this blog for about 3&1/2 years now! I’ve met some wonderful people during this time & will continue to keep it going, so don’t worry. But I’ve found that I really enjoy doing the videos a lot more. The videos are a lot more work for sure, so maybe that is why they are so much more satisfying when they are done. I’ve been thinking about turning the blog into more of a maintenance and mileage journal & focusing more of the “Meat & Potatoes”on my YouTube channel. Most people seem to enjoy the visual side a lot more than having to sit and read thru everything. The YouTube channel is easily getting 10 x the traffic as my blog site & it’s a lot faster & easier for my followers as well, especially once they subscribe.
What are your thoughts? Remember, I’m keeping the blog going, just simplifying it, but would you like to see more videos? Sound off in the comments.
That’s all for now. Short & sweet. I have to finish my taxes to give “The Man” his cut.
Hope everyone is doing well! As always, I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my little sliver of the internet.
