Oh the Places You(r 8th gen) Will Go!

This is a gallery I've been meaning to post for a while... I don't have any fancy mods on my car. The body is stock. The wheels are stock. The engine is stock. The interior is stock. Stock, stock, stock. Tre boring, right?

So what's different about my car? Well, I drive a lot. I take it places. Lots of places. I bought it a little more than two years ago, and in the last 25 months, it's been driven 42,000 miles, it's been to sixteen states, to beaches, forests, museums, lighthouses, zoos, military bases, and even its own birthplace. I thought I'd post some photos. I hope you enjoy my modest little collection!

Cape May, NJ


Pennsylvania Railroad Museum (Lancaster, PA)


Batsto, NJ


Barnegat Lighthouse (Long Beach Island, NJ)


At sea! (Cape May - Lewes Ferry)


Hershey Chocolate Factory (Hershey, PA)

This reminded me of a feature on a VW web site where the theme was something like "Your VW at...." and you had to include a picture of where it was. The rules were simple, and few: had to be a VW, car had to be in the pic, and it had to be a publically-accessible space (sorry no pics of your VW inside the White House fence).

Some were silly, like "here's my Golf at the local hardware store", but others were pretty cool.

It was for all VW's, not year- or model-specific. Should we start something similar here at DA? But just for Accords, of any year.

Nice pics and nice ride! mtts60 We should totally start one thread like this just for Accords (every generation). I think the last time my Accord was on a road trip with us was back in 2003 at the Red Wood National Park.

I agree. The 7th gens need one.

And that is a nice looking 8th gen. I might be looking to buy a new car soon and I can't decide if I love the 8th or hate it. Maybe it's the coupes that look nice? Maybe the color? I'm feeling the same about the 9th gens also. But I also felt that way about the 7th gens back in 2005.. I bought mine in 2012.

davidg4781 and datechbpss101, I finally created that thread: So where did you go with your Accord today?

I prefer the design of the 8th generation coupe to the 9th gen. Just personal preference- it strikes me as more aggressive. The engine in the 9th gen is more responsive, though. Speaking of 7th gens, I love (and miss) my old 2003 Accord coupe. That was a great car. I sold it to a relative because it was developing more and more repair needs. The relative who bought it did all the repairs, and it's still running just fine, now past 180k. (face palms)

I wholeheartedly concur with the idea of creating a "where did you go" thread. I'll add to it as well. In the meantime, here are some more shots for my little gallery.

Six Flags Great Adventure (Jackson, NJ)



Eastern State Penitentiary (And if you're going to visit, the "Terror Behind the Walls" haunted house is amazing, although the decrepit prison is creepy enough on its own. Philadelphia, PA)



Site of the first complete dinosaur skeleton discovered in North America (Haddonfield, NJ)



USS Constitution (You can see the masts in the background- this was as close as I could get. Boston, MA)



Bunker Hill Monument (Boston, MA)
