    Hi all!

    After owning many Civic's i've taken the plunge on an 'oldy'!

    I've known about the car fora few years now and finally managed to prise it away from it's previous owner.

    Sorry if i'm in the wrong section but i thought you guys would appreciate the old girl!

    Anyway, Pictures....










    Plans are to get it straight in the body shop for a small bit of welding to the front footwells before i break out the underseal.

    Hopefully i'll get it up there in the next few weeks so more pictures soon.

    Any comments or help greatly appreciated, it's a million miles away from the EG/EK's im used to! :Smile:

    Thanks for the appreciation Gents, wasn't sure how it would be recieved!

    Plans are to get it welded, undersealed, and prepped for a fresh coat of white.

    Can't believe at 25 years old it hasn't got a parking dent on either side.

    Engine, interior and styling plans are still very much undecided. The old man is pestering me to restore it and keep it original and i see his point however i do have a strong urge to subtly modify it visually and run a B16b.

    Time will tell where this one goes but at least its saved from the scrapheap and now tucked safely away in the garage. :thumbs:

    so much potential, you could modify it relative to the era, so use a d15/16 with keihin bike carburettors. they sound great but still have the retro feel. just one of many ideas youll get :Wink:

    that is a great example! very jelous! id keep it visually stock apart from a subtle drop and a nice set of era reletive wheels. but have something specail under the bonnet.
