So I walk into a Honda dealer to look at the Civic Si and the Accord coupe and what do you know, they had the Element wide open for me to see. I snuck a peek inside of the E, the same car I called an ugly duckling out on the streets, and fell in love with the thing. When I sat down in the driver's seat I felt like I was piloting large Transformer robot (hmmm, an Autobot sticker would look great on an E). Now I have someone from Autoland who my credit union referred that is searching for a blue 2WD EX with a manual transmission. I can't wait.
