The Best Things In Life

 

My love for cars came to me while playing with toy cars as a young boy, racing them through imaginary race tracks up and down the stairs. As I got older my interest for cars grew. My father started teaching my older brother and me how to change the oil on the family suburban as well as how to change the brakes and how to keep all the oil reservoir’s topped off. It was a wonderful learning experience that has stuck with me to this day. The fun really began when my older brother bought his first car! We did all the maintenances on it together and fixed it up real nicely. 

Rims, lowering kit, intake and exhaust were all the things that were purchased and installed by us to make the car look nicer and drive a lot faster.

 

 

A couple years later and I was able to purchase my own car. I bought a 2003 Acura RSX Type-S. It only had 14,000 miles on it and I knew I bought it for a steal! I immediately started modifying the car the way I wanted it to look like with new rims and tires. I later installed a lowering kit to fill in the gap between my tire and the wheel well. My car looked and sounded just like I had wanted it too.

Then came the day when my heart broke…

 

 

My car was a sports car, manual 6 speed transmission. Like the typical 18 year old guy, I had a heavy foot and liked the adrenaline rush. I was driving along one day when I heard a big clunk noise and all of a sudden the car wouldn’t go anywhere. I was devastated, my transmission had blown and the clutch was burned. I pulled the motor out and had the transmission rebuilt. After reinstalling the motor it was like a new car again and I was able to get back in the driver seat and cruise down the road.
