    Felizidades! Lol in other-words Congrats! You definitely deserve this win! We need some updated pictures of your car though, i think these are the same ones that I saw when i first became active on the board.

    Hope to see some progress with the A-deck soon. maybe it will be AOY worthy as well.

    I think it really means thumbs up. I use it in a different context, ever since I seen that one gif -:P(|)-.
    Anyway, I was just saying the car is a sexy beast

    Re: 2009 Accord of the Year: thegreatdane

    Wow. Thank you for the kind words guys! I didn't think my sedan was going to win this so I'm very honored. The other cars were all awesome. I know most of them have a lot of hard work behind them and they deserve the title just as well in my opinion. It was difficult for me as well to decide who to vote for.

    And I hope to have a new strong contender for the AOY when I finish my Aerodeck some day
