    That's right the girlfriend just agreed to buy an 90 Civic DX 4-Door "Limited".

    I'll post pics once we pick it up on Sunday.

    Curious...Inside the engine bay there is a sticker near the hood latch that says on my Si "Honda Manufacturing of Canada"...but in this one it says..."Honda Manufacturing of Japan"...does that make this car JDM??
    It has a D15B2 in it and as I've said it has the "Limited" plate on the trunk...

    Is this a JDM car? Oh...and we (she) are buying it for $650 CDN.

    no its not JDM... JDM means Japan Domestic Market (ie: for sale in Japan)

    this car was simply manufactured in Japan

    places your honda can be from:
    Marysville, Ohio, USA
    East Liberty, USA
    Alliston, Canada
    Sayama, Japan
    Suzuka, Japan
    Tochigi, Japan

    Not only that...it's left hand drive (duh...brain fart).
    As far as being a sleeper...don't think that will be happening to the girlfriends daily driver ;)

    Could someone do a VIN# search for me?

    Vin#: JHMED3649LS806416

    I want to know what I can...

    Thanks,

    Jason

    PS>...new altenator, new battery, new dist. cap, two new tires, new rad, immaculate interior.

    Drop a VTEC head on that sucker and have some fun! You already have a pretty good transmission mated up to the block, and the car is pretty light...

    Nice find though- the 4G sedans are pretty sweet.
