    1995 civic jdm b16 swap

    It looks really nice and the guy has been very honest about its defects so I figured its worth a look, I might be trading my accord for it because he has a kid and needs something his wife can drive... we'll see

    opinions?

    Looks cleanish. But he already has back seats, why would he trade for another car with the same number of seats?

    Looks pretty clean and it does look like he is being pretty upfront about the defects and what not.

    The only reason why I could see him wanting to trade is if its a four door. Loading my 3 year old into the back of a 2 door sucks at times.

    I used the kid excuse to get rid of my rex. And I bought a 92 hatch for the rear seats.. But I just didn't like it as much as the rex, so I sold it.. And here I am, years later with two kids, and another rex. Of course, this time I have a pair of SUVs to handle kid duty. My son who is almost 4 loves riding in the crx, he calls it the "race car". lol

    Haha sounds like a good excuse to me :p

    And I ran the VIN on this car ( if anyone wants a vin run I have 9 left) and it came back clean with the exception of the odometer reading but thats because of the swap and everything, and the guy that has it right now bought it from the 5th owner two weeks ago so he didn't transfer the title to his name.

    I'm a little iffey on this but I guess we'll find out tomorrow, and I think I'm going to have a friend come with me just to be on the safe side.

    why wouldn't he transfer it into his name?

    A) he bought it for dirt and is trying to flip it for a profit

    B) it's not titled since he bought it and it's going to be hell to register.

    proceed with caution

    I think he probably realized once he got it that, his kiddo was going to make that civic a pain in the ass and that he needed something bigger, i.e. a 4 dr. He's only driven the car for a week and a half and had it on craigslist since so I dunno.... we'll see. And, he apparently traded a nissan bagged truck for this car, and now i want to trade my accord for it... So I dont know if there will be a bill of sale, but as long as the owner before him signed the title then Ill have him come with my to the courthouse to get it transfered

    Bill of sale doesn't mean dick in texas. Be absolutely certain to contact the previous owner and make sure everything is on the level.

    Oh, PM incoming, I want you to run the rex I just bought, lol
