    lol all i can think of is that episode of the simpsons where Nelson laughs at this huge guy in a vw beetle... then Nelson is forced to walk down the street with his pants down...

    anyways, cool car, but those are some weird lookin seats. lol i love how you pick the smallest cars.

    I'll get more pics when I get it home and situated.

    The seats are like 11-way adjustable things....Toyota went crazy with that shit in the 80's


    not as much leg room as a CRX, but theres a decent amout of headroom

    I'd like to get an old Mini shell and pimp it out- maybe tub it and go RWD with a Honda transaxle in the back. Hmm.

    New Pics!

    I got the car for $1200

    Clayton, this thing is 4x100 and I think the only wheels you have are a set of Wantanabes and of course the CF's (how many people heads would explode if I posted a pic of this thing on RPR with your CF-48's on it?)


    Also, I happened to have these laying around and they've never been on a car (they will eventually end up on the CRX):

    basically you did an LS swap (4a-GE infact) into a EF Civic Hatch (Corolla Hatch). Its actually pretty cool and it looks nicer than an LS swap. :thumbsup:
