Hey everyone, just thought I'd do the intro thing so I'm not so 'out of the blue' when I post.
I'm 23 very soon, a Mechanical engineering student, and I own an 87 blue auto hatch and a 73 met.blue Jag XJ w/ a chev 350.
I live In Victoria BC, which is on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada.
I think this site rocks, and my non-honda friends are starting to get tired of hearing about it.....lmao.
My stupid name comes from the blue fiber optic bead I have in my peircing.
Besides cars, I like sailing and building things. Oh yeah, and women, although sometimes I wonder if my addiction is healthy!
Nice to be here! :bow: :rockon:
