well, here's my beater. I bought it for 100 dollars, the hood was black, the whindsheild was smashed and the quarters are falling off it. I had all the stuff for the motor swap laying around and thought that the car would make a nice ratrod. My buddy has since renamed it project rotrod because of its sever state of decay. I travel 100 miles back and forth to school so this car makes the drive a little more pleasurable. Im not saying that its nice looking for fast but it sure is fun to drive. I dont have much money(school) and I have less than a 1000 dollars into this thing. The swap is a obd1 b18a with a b16 hydro tranny, intake that came with the car and the stock civic exhaust that leaks before the cat and the muffler recently fell off. Also if it matters I have an ebay short throw shifter. Enjoy and please take it easy on me, I'm not rice just broke.
