A new Acura roamed into the neighborhood this afternoon.  My good friend Jason, who’s joined for various Drive to Five escapades in the past including Coronado Trail, stopped by my home to show off his sporty new ride.

My driveway often looks a lot like an Acura dealership’s lot.  Feast your eyes on this stunning 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD 6-speed manual.  That’s a mouthful to say, so let’s just call his car one word:  HOT.

Paul, at left, has the white 2013 TL SH-AWD.  Jason’s “new” 2010 on the right is Crystal Black, and it’s in showroom shape for being already 3 years old.

Jason and his friend Jouhl made Phoenix one of their pit stops en route to their hometown in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Jason just picked up his new TL yesterday in Sherman Oaks, CA.  His total drive will be 12 hours or so.  Here my ILX is sandwiched between the two TLs for a photo-op.

The interior is nicely outfitted in black leather.

With fewer than 25,000 miles on the odometer, this car has a long life ahead.

I must say, after having taken Jason’s car for a quick ride around the block, I loved it!

This car is powered by Acura’s 3.7-liter V6 with 305 horsepower.  Plenty of oomph for those onramp bursts.

Safe travels to Jason and Jouhl as they continue their journey home to New Mexico tonight!  I look forward to meeting up with them for a drive in the near future.

  1. Tyson, thanks for the feature and those pix sure came out great! I felt like I had a nice warm welcoming back into the Acura scene. Wish we could have stayed longer as it’s always fun to talk cars. You’ll have to take the wheel for a little longer on our next drive! We have yet to find out if this really is “Super-Handling.”

    • And we shall! I’ll get the mental wheels turning on some ideas for our next meet-up. Glad you guys made it home safe and sound to New Mexico last night (this morning). Congratulations once again on your new ride!

  2. Some nice rides there! Admittedly I’m partial to a Legend, but I would love to have any of those in my driveway.

    • Dave, your driveway is already one to lust after! I’m putting Seattle on my top list of 2014 destinations because I need to see “Six” again and I’ve still never laid eyes on that new (old) Bronco you’ve been rolling around in. Great fleet you’ve got up there.
