No pictures as of yet, I'll tease you a little longer. Still getting plates from DMV, but it will be home tomorrow. I'll take pics on saturday when it's sunny.

Now for the car:
-1991 Honda Civic Hatchback
-Red (Gotta watch out for the po-po!)

Immaculate body. I was in the market for an EG but when I saw how good of a condition it was in I jumped on it. The ony exterior problem is little spots of touch-up paint everywhere. (At least the previous owner did it right instaed of letting it peel.) The only interior problem is that the driver seat is torn. Other than that, immaculate.

So, check back for pic's and as soon as I start modding it, I'll make a project thread! My first Honda, I'm stoked!

Not an Si. Although to tell you the truth I don't know what trim level it is. Definately not an Si though. I got it for $1100 at a local car auction. Not bad considering how good condition it is. When I post pics maybe ya'll can help me out with the trim level, lol.

I'm going to the DMV tomorrow morning to get it transferred into my name and get all the legalities outta the way. Once I get it home it's photo-time!

Well, I took some crappy camera phone pictures.

Here we go:

Exterior:





Interior:





Money Shot:


Well, there you have it! I'll take some better ones later. It's really clean for a '91. That's the main reason I got it.

Only problems are:
Paint is faded, Took out rear tire and there was water back there, Reverse light has sediment in it, Trim is faded, Driver side seat is torn, Wheels need balancing.

Other than those things, it's immaculate. I'm happy with it! Very Happy

and its only a 4 speed lol. Time to get a new tranny. Or swap that sucker. I hate when they overdose on the cleaner under the hood lol, takes forever for that stuff to go away.

Still clean though. Other than the seat like you said.

No biggie on the seats, you woulda replaced them sooner or later.

I suggest read up on the dual point conversion, cheap, and easy to do. Plus you'll notice a big difference in power.

For the trim, may I suggest Back to Black by Megiuers. Very good stuff, and it makes your trim look great for months.

Very clean hatch.

Thanks. I was thinking about painting it with duplicolor trim paint. The seat will be fine after a seat cover, lol. I am not doing anything to the engine until I do the swap. Then i'm buying a pre-made obd0 to obd1 conversion harness and swap in the GSR engine i want!
