    Being a dad is the best thing ive done with myself. All that practice to make kids is great. I'm lucky to have 2 fantastic kids and a good wife.

    PA .... I think it was a link on the Honda one website and xlr8aboy (PJC) car. There was a reference to the site there. I have been on pp.com for longer but PA rules!

    Stupidity. That and I decided not to go down the path of the H22. Once I decided the 3g was a keeper more power was a must for me. Flipmods gear was the thing that twisted my arm. Although Chris's car looks sweet as.

    Cheers BUT there are lots of guys on this site who know far more than me me when it comes to Preludes and Hondas. I'm a fitter and turner by trade and just enjoy pulling things apart and fixing them. I know a lot of stuff from general engineering studies but most of the practical stuff is just having a go.

    06 WRX & 05 Type S. I havn't actually driven an S15. I love RWD cars but they only tempt me to drive like an idiot. The FWD platform of the 3g is fantastic and feels like a gocart.
    I considered skylines, supras and the soarer. They just didn't appeal to me.
    The only car id swap the 3g for would be an S8 RX7. But the fuel usage is just too much for what i'm prepared to pay for.

    So.. 3g it is.

    Anna thinks its fine. Its a trade off against buying another car. She knows I'm a car nut and that wont change and at least its productive. Anna and I enjoy the social aspect of PA and have made some great friends. As a family thing its an opportunity to all do something together.

    Abbey is loves the PA meets and keeps tabs on what people are doing on the road. She gets very involved. Ryan is obviously too young to understand but i'm sure he will get involved.

    Its more than just a car. The car wouldn't be what it is without PA and its all good.
