Memories are what makes anything we’ve ever done worth the time. They give value to life’s events.
Memories are the things we look back at that remind us of a certain feeling and time in our lives.
And the things we hold onto that remind us of those memories become very dear to our hearts.
But for whatever reason, many of us will part with something we really cared about.
A lot of us have built a car from bone stock or worse, into a visual representation of our personal styles.
Putting our hard earned checks and painstaking hours of labor into something we enjoy everyday.
For Cody Kinsch, his car that got away is this 1997 Acura Integra GSR.
After going through various stages, it last arrived at this. Right before he sold it.
Boasting a Honda Element khaki paint and JDM front end – it effortlessly stands out from the rest.
“This was the car that I took with me on my first year of college. It experienced a lot of changes in both environment, and myself. I made a lot of trips back and fourth from Stillwater to Broken Arrow and it was always a trooper.”
This lowly gentleman here rides on a 15″ set of XXR 002’s wrapped in Khumo Ecsta 205/40’s.
And bringing it low to the ground are Cusco coilovers, complimented by
a full set of Comptech bars – front, rear, and lower – enhancing the chassis stability all around.
Wrapping up the exterior styling is a carbon-fiber Mugen-style lip, Password JDM air duct,
Mugen wing, Type R skirts, and Seibon carbon-fiber hood.
“This car tought me how to drive better out of any car I have ever owned.
I drove it the only way it should have been drove – hard and fast.”
Thanks to Cody for the amazing photos!
