    The Civic is the driver education car :D that my middle son is now driving. The wife drives a G35:p

    My oldest son totaled the teg in a single car accident that landed him stradling a small ditch which totally twisted the unibody, therefore now parting out, and supplying the engine, trans, and brakes for the EK.

    I've had the S for 4 years now, and it's still awesome.

    I'm also currently restoring my 65 Mustang for the second time. It was my first car that I purchased in 1980.

    Nice car collection! Sorry to hear about the DC... but I'm glad to welcome another S owner to HondaSwap!

    Any plans to mod the S? I'm looking to turbo my 2003 with a LoveFab kit after I pay it off.

    Long story short, let's just say I may never learn of what really happend, just what I was told(heard a big bang and the back end just came around). That being said, the car was lowered so much that it impacted the handleing (bump steer), the left tie rod joint and CV axle joint were both bad when it happened (at least the inspection I performed after the fact) and he over corrected when the car went into the median. Better in the ditch on the right than into oncoming traffic. He was safe and not injured, and no airbags deployed, just a twisted unibody.

    My son is an excellent driver (I even let him drive my S on the track), just doesn't always use the best judgement. Hopefully he has learned something from his experience.

    Cool. That's about how mine looks right now- just stereo stuff until the car is paid off. You have a nice list of mods so far though!

    No, I observed an autocross once, and although they are cheap enough, to spend the entire day to get in less than 5 minutes driving time did not apeal to me. I go to HPDE track events where I get 4 to 5 20 minute sessions on the track.

    I may start autocrossing the S though, as I'm going to try to get my son interested since it is cheap and frequent. Then maybe he can keep it safe on the streets.

    I'm bid on planning & budgeting, so the swap won't acutally occur until next summer at the earliest. First things first, like selling all the parts off the teg, learning as much about the swap as possible, including engine building, paying me off for the loan on the EK, then having the money to rebuild the engine & tranny.

    We will be swaping the 4 wheel discs soon, and I see a coilover system going in before the engine as well. We might put the GSR axles in while doing the brakes.

    That is EXACTLY how I think about autocrossing... too much time invested for WAY too little seat time.
