All I Want For Christmas Is This Perfect Imported 1991 Honda NSX

Dear Santa, I’ve been good this year. Except for that one thing, but we don’t need to talk about that—I did what I had to do, remember? Anyway, you’re a busy guy, so I only have one item on my list: this 1991 JDM Honda NSX on eBay, in your favorite color.

Currently sitting pretty at a reasonable $30,300, it’s a Japanese-market NSX the seller says was legally imported here, to America, land of the free, specifically in Long Beach, Calif. The original five-speed has been swapped for a six-speed from a later NSX, but no one will mind that.


Look Mr. Claus, you are going to get a lot of car requests this year. That one lady has been singing a blue ‘54 convertible forever, you should have taken care of that by now. I’m not going to go crazy and ask for a Ferrari or something ridiculous and I don’t even expect you do deliver it with all of your other stops. Just hook a brother up with a PayPal payment and I’ll take care of the rest.

Why this car? Well, just look at it. You are a man that appreciates a fast ride and classic lines. And this isn’t just any NSX, this a car from the homeland. It’s right-hand drive, which means I’ll have to learn to shift with my left. That will be a good New Years resolution for me.


See. this isn’t just a gift, it’s an opportunity of for self-improvement.

The reserve hasn’t been met yet, but I’m sure you can handle it. Auction ends in a day so I’m going to need you to act fast on this one.


I’ll even let you drive it the next time you’re in town.

Merry Christmas,

-Tom McParland
