Ami & Dan's 1987 LS

Postby Ami » March 25th, 2017, 12:46 am

In August 2007, I bought this 1987 LS for the first time. I was 20 years old.

Image

I really loved this car. We were two '87 browntops really enjoying our 20th year on this planet.

Image

That fall, the tires on the stock wheels were dryrotting so I bought tires for my GS-R Blades instead.

Image

I drove it to Team-Integra gatherings and a member, budding photographer Andrew Wagner, took this picture.

Image

In the summer of 2008, my mother wanted me in a safer car and loaned me the $ to buy a 4-door GS-R.
I reluctantly parted ways with the 1987 but made sure that it went to a home that loved Hondas and knew how to treat a DA well.

Image

On 5/14/09, someone hit me and ran less than a year later. The GS-R crumpled around me and I walked out in one piece. Mother knows best!

Image

On 6/15/09, I bought a white 4-door GS-R to follow it up and the hope of getting another G1 was put away for a later date.
(Yes, that is the 1987 behind my GS-R.)

Image

In May 2011, I submitted the good old picture to a Tumblr account dedicated to hot cars and found a pleasant surprise.

Image

On 3/15/14, after getting engaged to Dan from Team-Integra.net, G1Teg friend All4AMD (James) messaged me.
He sent some rather suggestive advice on how to make my engagement trip special.
(For some reason, after margaritas, tapas and enchiladas, butt stuff just didn't seem like the ideal way to spice up the night. :lol:)

Image

In 2015, we had a small wedding and invited a couple of G1Teg friends.
G1Teg friend EvtSteward (Robert) RSVPed to Dan so that he could surprise me by checking into Virginia the day before the wedding!

Image

On 8/15/15, 5 years after our first date, Dan and I used my white GS-R as our driveaway car.
(Andrew Wagner photographed our wedding.)

Image

Here we are between Robert, admin of G1Teg and Steve, admin & founder of Team-Integra! Both are good friends of ours and stand-up guys.

Image

At the end of our wedding, our best friend drove us home in my white CL-S 6-speed with Navigation and black interior.
They only made 15 of those. ;)
Shortly after our wedding, he admitted that it would be nice to find a worthy first gen and build it up with me.

Image

In October 2016, as we were preparing his Integra and my CL for Integra Type R Expo, Dan was on CraigsList and found my 1987 LS for sale!
He basically shouted words of encouragement until I set up a test drive.

Image

On 10/14/16, we towed that thing back to our house, more than 2 hours away. That was such a wild night.

Image

On 10/15/16, I installed this DC Sports strut bar that I had laying around. I wasted no time... LOL!

Image

On 10/17/16, we took a picture of our trio of Integra hatchbacks! You can really see the progression between generations.

Image

On 11/4/16, we had this new windshield installed.

Image

On 11/6/16, we found this. Time for a new engine.

Image

On 12/3/16, we went into the garage with our best friend and yanked the tired old D16A1. Teamwork makes the dream work!

Image

It's out!

Image

On 12/11/16, we took a look at the undercarriage and made a plan of action for the rust problem.

Image

On 2/11/17, we got this in the mail... This is a Hasport AVB1 kit! We're going B-series!!!

Image

On 3/16/17, I snapped this picture of the snow-covered 'Tegs for no real reason.

Image

That's all, folks! We will keep you updated as we continue... I'll have to get Dan to stop lurking and start posting! :D

Nice to have some elbow room when thrashing on Acuras. Very nice pic sequence.

If I had a spacious attached garage with air tools the first time I had this car, I may not have gotten rid of it. :lol:

Thank you for always being there with advice when Dan and I hit a wall! Man, we can't wait to get to the B-swap!

Thank you both! I am following the progress on your cars as well.
Let's turn the mothership into a party boat! Post on G1Teg more frequently!
