    yesterday morning i put the 72 hour move or tow notice on a 89-91 civic hb, it has been sitting abandoned at a shop near my fiances work for about 2 months. i got in touch with the property owner and he said to put the notice up and if the car was still there after that to come pick it up and take it home. after i get it home i will have to file for a lien foreclosure to get the title.

    this car is not in great shape, the passenger side is beat to shit, the roof is pushed in a bit...well lets be honest, i wont be driving this car anytime soon. on the other hand, a free honda is good in my eyes...at least i will have a parts car to tear apart and put back together. this should keep me busy until i can pick up my 89 sedan in a couple weeks.

    That is going to be a beautiful feeling. I've had a chance to dabble around with my mechanic on both of my engines. Either way, it's nice to hear that it's almost free! Now you're going to have to post some pictures. :D

    Take a hot shower, have a beer, take another hot shower and you will feel like you have already done those dirty things twice. :D

    I'm curious to know what you'll end up doing.

    lol theres not much to learn off of the sohc blocks. You have pistons, rods, crank shaft, oil pump, seals and bearings... what else is there to learn?
