    I've been waiting for cheap shell to come by my way for a while now because I DO NOT want to heavily mod my RSX. I pay to much a month in car payments to have it down for any reason. I really want a ek hatch but then i ran across this today...

    Looks like all it needs is a new hood and some TLC. I PM'd him and asked him how much if I came and picked it up, he said $1600. As long as the motor has compression, I'll boost the ever living fuck out of it just to see how big of a hole I can put in it lol

    What do you think?

    The DX only had the "bullet hole" wheels. Only the LX and EX had hubcaps.

    4 doors are a dime a dozen.

    Its the hatchies that are teh hotness.

    **CAUTION**
    <-- owns a hatchie, so his opinion is heavily jaded



    P.S. The fodos are heavy lil bastards. Yet another reason to go hatch.

    I'm not sure if you noticed this or not... But that's a 4 door Honda Civic.

    What kind of project are you talking about ? "Project: Babyseat" or "Project: Grocerygetter"

    Its funny, I switched from a crx to a hatch because of baby seats...

    Still wouldn't get a fodo.. Would rather load the kids the hard way than drive a fodo civic.

    Then again, we have a four door teggy.. And we love it.

    gut it and weld the rear doors flush, longer wheel base better for drag racing, although that might only be with rear wheel drive cars
