    This is awesome man! I`m glad to see your hatch up and running and back on the road. I haven`t visited the forum in ages it seems, should come by more often haha.
    Have you guys had much snow this winter? Everyone is bringing their summer toys out lately as we have basically no snow left on the ground.

    yes! glad there was one turbo accord still running around once mine went down. glad you(and the car) are doing good. Hopefully I can get mine back on the road and we can have the only 2 daily turbo 3rd gens for a while haha.

    Whoa Hash! Hey.

    Yea we have had quite a bit of snow this year, but now spring is in full swing, finally!

    The hatch is currently uninsured since I am in-between jobs but I hope to insure it in the next few weeks and get those gaskets and oil change sorted out.. I should also probably go through and re-tighten some nuts and bolts too. I'll have to actually take some pics when I go to do that this time!

    Yeah, my car is just sitting with storage insurance right now too until I'm sure winter is done.
    Good luck with the job thing, it's pretty rough out in Alberta for that right now.

    I plan on at least one road trip out to Vancouver area this spring/summer, so I will make sure to get in touch and we can finally meet up when I am driving through.

    Hey guys, long time!

    I'm still driving the hatch, it has been very faithful to me over the years! It's certainly showing it's age on the body and I don't know how long it'll last but it's running well and I still enjoy driving it.

    I just wanted to post and get a last bump in here before all the pictures come down. Like everyone already probably knows or has experienced, the hosting site isn't being friendly about 3rd party. I will not be paying $400 a year so that the pictures can remain up. It's just not financially smart, I don't make that much money. I guess I can leave a link if anyone ever wants to browse the albums but that's about all I can do. It's really a bummer but nothing I can do unfortunately, fack..

    I was going to upload some new pics.. but what the heck is the point? Just imagine some more rust creeping in and some wear and tear in the engine bay haha.

    I think if I were to keep the hatch for the long term it would be best to get a rust free body and swap over everything I wanted to keep.. maybe that'll happen but who knows(I would like it to!)

    Glad to hear it's still running strong! I miss 3rd gen Accords especially the hatch. Over here in the midwest they're pretty much extinct. Do whatever you can to keep her running strong!
