Not too far. I live near at least half a dozen roads with 'cool' names and photographers set up every weekend to catch the bikers and car clubs coming through. It's somewhat of a motorsports destination, for sure.

I’ve been wanting to drive down there at some point soon to experience it with a nice handling car... just haven’t had the time/cash to do it

If you ever do plan to come down this way, let me know and I can recommend some other super awesome roads that are way less trafficked- sometimes the Dragon turns into just one long traffic jam, it's horrible. Best time to go is on a weekday morning at least a couple weeks away from any major holiday. Found it totally empty a number of times that way, and don't have to deal with hordes of people too scared to drive fast or too dumb to know they shouldn't.

That would be really cool, I heard US16 is pretty good near there, but all I have here is US33 and US50 up here that are decent

I will definitely be adding a MPGuino and a vacuum gauge once I get the mechanical bits overhauled. Iíll find a way to flush mount them in the dash or console, just have other things that will take priority. Canít lie, Iím super excited about this car- Iíve never had a car simply because I wanted it- Iíve owned tons of vehicles but all of them were purely a result of what was available and my budget, utilitarian to the max and no element of pleasure or fun and no emotional investment at all. So Iím 32 years old and this will finally be ďmyĒ first car that is mine purely because I want it. Better late than never!

Welcome, Former Asheville resident, ase tech just getting back on here. West coast resident now in OR. I am currently finishing a 1993 ex civic with d16/d15
rebuild and vx transmission swap. I learned to wrench in Asheville. Just picked up a vx drive train in Portland 6 weeks ago. D15 is one of the easiest engines to work on.

Thank you! I'll be learning as I go with this project, but I have high expectations (hopefully not unrealistic) for myself and the end result. I'm hoping that if I make an attempt to not rush it that I can enjoy it, learn something, and end up with a cool end product. Good luck out there on the West Coast!

There are 2 more stock vxs on CL Eugene OR right now. $1800-$2500. There are a lot in Pacific NW. I think due to ports. Good luck!
