    Ahhhhh...this is out 10th EF in less than 3 years.

    Its a 1989 Si hatch. It has 362,xxx Kilometeres (too lazy to convert to miles). Blown headgasket and some cancer but I got it for $350.

    I took out the thermostat and left the rad cap on half way to drive it home 20 minutes. We had to stop twice to top up the coolant, we didn't even go through a 4 litre jug. About 1/2 mile away from home my gad gave it full throttle for 2nd, 3rd and a bit of 4th, talk about white smoke.

    Plans for now are to put a spare D15B2 in it and sell it for $1200 to my dads co-worker.

    Here is a teaser pic until morning.

    Reminds me of the one that got away. Craigslist had an EF hatch no engine/trans for 250, friend had a built B16A/GSR trans for 1000. Craigslist guy was a douche...
    I think I'd sell the Si. Finish the Camaro and with the cash left over pick up one of these guys... I dont know what draws me to them. I want one in flat black or OD Green

    I phoned the guy like 1 hr after he posted it. I was at his house paying him 2 hrs after he posted it. After I picked it up he said about 10 people phoned him about it.

    So far I've stripped off the "H CIVIC H" banner across the winshield, fixed the hood latch (wouldn't close all the way), taken out all of the subwoofer and alarm wires, adjusted the clutch cable and pedal and taken off the slippery ricer pedals and replaced them with OE rubber.

    I've been driving it so much. I'll do a couple of laps, top up the coolant, do a couple more laps.
