Driving the Acura NSX: Pictures of the Experience

This past weekend, I made a trip to Carlsbad, CA to visit my godfather and to see my parents who were visiting from North Carolina.  I don’t see my godfather that often so this was a special trip for me.  In fact, the last time I saw him was at my brother’s college graduation in 2009.

In order to have some one-on-one time, my godfather took me for a drive in his Acura NSX convertible.  We took his automobile up into the hills, driving along Elfin Forest Rd/Harmony Grove Rd, so that we could experience the true performance of the car as we sped around the curves of the winding road.  My godfather handles the car like a pro.

As we approached an area with some industrial buildings, my godfather turned onto a cul-de-sac, and stopped the car.  He then asked me if I would like to drive it!  I hadn’t driven a stick-shift since high school (however, that was an SUV – a Mazda Navajo LX). It is quite a different experience to drive a 6-speed, high performance automobile. However, after a few quick trips up and down the cul-de-sac to once again develop a feel for using a clutch, I was ready to hit the road.

My godfather gave me the opportunity to drive the car back along Harmony Grove Rd/Elfin Forest Rd, back to I-5 (where I could open it up a little bit on the freeway) and back to his home in Carlsbad.

It is an experience I will never forget.

Thank you, Uncle Tony!
