1991 Acura NSX: Going Back Home...Sorta
September 27, 2012
There have been many NSXs here before. But today just one.
Here is Honda's Proving Ground in Mojave, California about 150 miles from our office. It's a huge facility with a 7-mile oval, two road courses, several off road courses, including a full motocross track, a wet skidpad and much more.
When business called me to Honda's desert facility a few weeks ago, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to drive our NSX to and from the place, and of course, all around the facility. It just seemed right. And it was right. Sort of coming home for the sports car in some small way.
The NSX and I toured the place. Alone. We were completely unsupervised for 30 minutes or so. Just the car, myself and the dry desert wind. No real need for speed. This was a moment to remember for many reasons beyond the thrill of a fast car on an empty stretch of track.
We're about to sell our NSX. I'm glad I got to do this with it before it belongs to someone else.
