It doesn't bother you that the tires stick out that far from the wheel well?

$4000?? What did they do and what kind of paint did they use?
I thought the usual price for a good paint job is like $2000 or so.

Yeah ive yet to see one of those on the road! They also had a honda prelude that had rear wheel steering, from what I hear you could fly around corners in that thing. I wonder if this would be beneficial in auto-x or if its just nonsense?????

Yeah I had one those prelude!!! It was the best handling car I ever had (stock), untill you hit a curb and knock the steering out of an alingment, try find a shop that will do a four wheel steering alignment, and get it done right!!!

It would be okay, but i would want to take it to someone that really knew how to align it. What happens often with the AWS is that the alignment between what the front tire thinks is straigh and rear tires think are striaght may not be the same, so the rearend ends up wanting to pull one way, and all you have to do is hit a curb to hard or something and it is all messed up. There is a reason Honda stopped making it. The back tires only move 10ths of an inch, it not like the rear move the same distance but opposite to the front. I'm sure it would handle good in autoX, but with todays suspension technology, and considering they quite making those over 10 years ago, I don't think it would be my choice.

Nice car by the way... I always wanted a VR-4

If I haven't known its a VR-4, I would mistake it as a Hummer with those huge and wide tires.

$ ouch. Is that in the photo or after? ...cuz I was gonna say I'm not a fan of that color. Is it red or orange, it looks like it used to be red but got faded out badly in the sun.
BUT... other than the color, you're all right. It's a very nice car, and in such fine condition, wicked tires. I always love driving behind a car with wide, low-profile tires just cuz it looks so good.
