When stuck in training in a military atmosphere, it never seems to fail the thought of your passion, whatever it may be, to go racing through your head. In my case it was driving, racing, mechanics, anything with an engine and or wheels. So upon my freedom and some R&R I had to do what I like doing and that was time with my car. Lucky for me I was not the only one. Two friends that endured the same lack of sleep, mental stress and at time physical stress wanted and shared the same freedoms I did. We changed and off we went to the car wash to dust off the ladies for a night out.
Clearly in the 100 degree plus weather drinks were a must. Here is an HN showing complete dedication as you will see wit he pictures to come.
The corpsman had just purchased this fine an example of a DC5. It is stock minus some springs and an intake/exhaust, yet the fun it brings to its owner can be seen on his face.
I can only assume a spot was seen
Did he get it?
I guess not…
This being his first car Classified as a sporty car, I can see why the need to be detailed about certain scuffs, stains, or water spots. It happens to us all.
I have never seen a matte black civic in person before, in fact, I have only seen maybe three or four matte colored cars ever. So when a shipmate of mine had his civic painted I was quite intrigued and needless to say the bystanders were also. Here are some pics…
The paint is a bit of a chore to take care of as black tends to get dirty quite quickly but the actual washing of the car is quite simple really. Especially seeing as wax is not needed. The military has quite a bit of car enthusiast within it and that does bring a comfort in knowing I am not the only one interested in this money pit of a hobby….well until next time. Laters.
