NALM 2015 Wrap-Up Video & NAPA “200,000 Mile Club” Commercial
Odometer (ILX): 142,067
From one car adventure to the next! This old 1992 got a wash on Monday night. Next Wednesday, it’ll be rolling out to Palm Springs, California for the NSXPO convention.
I’ve pieced together a few highlights from this year’s Nat’l Acura Legend Meet in Houston for this 8-minute video. A good chunk of this clip – the first 3 1/2 minutes, anyway – are centered around the “surprise” arrival of Maryland-based Chris Miller who had arrived in his new Legend without anyone (besides me) knowing about him buying that car. Skip ahead if that doesn’t interest you!
My friend Ryan shared the following 2-minute NAPA commercial with me. It kind of cracks me up to see all the hubbub being made over getting a car to 200,000 miles. The video also makes the assertion that any car > 10 years old (and with that kind of miles) must have fries underneath the seats and smell like a locker room. Au contraire, my NAPA friends! I think there’s a reason you don’t see any Honda or Toyota cars in the video. For a Honda, getting to 200,000 is just the beginning.
I’m posting this blog entry from my mom’s place in southern Utah, where tomorrow (Saturday) I’ll make an attempt at running a 26-mile marathon with her. Wish me luck.
Edit: OH HEY! This is my 500th blog post on Drive to Five! So, is that a blog post for every 1,000 miles? Something like that. Thanks for being a part of the adventure.
