    91 CRX Si

    I *really* wish I had held onto those Team Dynamics wheels
    I put this car together before the black projectors were available for the 90-91's (I used 88-89 headlights and modified the 90-91 brackets..total PITA)

    87 Pulsar...I swapped a FWD CA18DET in this thing. I got it for free (through work) and it only had 68k
    -Imagine getting whooped up in your GSR by one of these :)

    the SE-R's..1 '94 and 1 '91. the red one had factory black leather, I've only ever seen one other B13 w/it. The maroon one was the car I was driving before I got my EG...

    I'd rock a ca18det pulsar.

    and why keep the wheels on the crx? they're ugly...

    I <3 the Team Dynamics Motorsports...

    I don't like exposed lug wheels and I especially hate those goddamn universal lug shits

    87 Nissan Pulsar e16i.. later turboed and still runs around northern missouri with 7psi out of a 14b off of a 1st gen dsm

    1991 Dodge Ram Wagon.... 318 and a 3sd auto... got itself all the way to a 14.87 in the 1/4 So many good times were had in the back of that thing... 6 people crammed in the back, more sex than a porn king's dvd collection, and a fridge that I center mounted..... Right now it is a tow and work truck for a business

    1988 Pontiac Grand am 2.3l QUAD4..... Not a bad car until certain parts of the electrical wiring decided to blow themselves up and melt surronding parts of the wiring harness.. sitting in my father's field waiting for me to repair it, but I never will.

    1991 Ford Taurus.... I swear to go I never learn..... never..... trans mission went at 110k the first time... then again at 130 and the last time at 135..... I simply dumped the thing in a scrap metal yard for 50 bucks and watched it get crushed....

    1986 Ford F150 with the 300I6... this thing is a fucking beast, and my little brother still drives it around today, 350k miles on the 100% stock long block..... rebuilt trans at 220k and it has been running VERY well ever since... routine shit and this thing keeps on tickin..... "its hard to stop the buzzin half dozen"

    1991 Nissan Sentra xe.... 1.6 with a 5speed.... I hated losing this thing... turns out I bought a stolen vehicle and when the title went in...... SHIT! I am glad I got someone their car back, but I wish that I would have gotten some money from it

    1991 Mazda 626.... I didnt know that they made cars this slow. I thought that 20 second 0-60 times were a joke that I told to honda owners.... 2700lb car... I weigh 170 and it only makes about 88hp on the ground.... SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. The trans recently decided to no longer work and I am still trying to fix it, but I have a large inability to do since this problem happens so much on this specific car..... all of the replacement parts have been bought and broke again...... I want out of this car and I am leaving it soon.

    1987 f150 with a 4sp4x4 and a 302, that and the snow plow on the front end makes for one HELL of a farm truck.

    1973 CJ5 258 3sp... you can talk as much as you want about where a jeep can and cannot go and what it can and cannot do.... 265,000 miles later this thing is still rockin hard and will pull the trees like they are nothing.... fuck stumps, thats nothing... try pulling the whole tree..... yea... 85 year old oaks get pretty damn big.

    1985 Toyota Corolla SR5..... if there was a car I wish I never would have gotten it was this thing... I GAVE IT AWAY... I hated that thing so freakin much.

    theres more..... just remember all of them, makes me happy I stick with nissans.

    steve can talk all he wants about unreliability... 1.6 5spd fo life!

    I miss the following:

    My 1980 Celica Sunchaser Convertible. I had the roof down in the winter. The roof always came down. That car was a party car.

    My 1987 4Runner. I just got rid of it a few weeks ago. The only car I ever dreamed of

    Either of my 1973 Firebird Formulas. this is my curse, I must live with it. I've owned two and couldn't afford to keep them when I had them. I gave them each away. Total loss: $4000+

    my 1982 Supra. That car did anything, but it was a real rat trap. traded it in for my 91 Nissan NX2000

    My NX2000. Another death trap. But I just got another one a few weeks ago, so it's back . (I See a red car and I want to paint it black)

    my 1982 Datsun 200SX. It talked, hatchback, 5 speed ,I swapped the L28 into it, it rocked. Stolen and burned to the ground.

    my Current 87 CRX. Haven't driven it in over 2 years, selling it.

    My 87 Supra. Not because it was a fabulous car, but it was my baby.

    The 89 MR2 SC. That car will never be matched.

    its about as hard as an SR20DET swap in an SE-R...you just pull all the wiring all the way to the ECU

    I used my tranny (original motor was the CA16DE)...took me 3 days from start to finish (running)

    This isn't my car, but its the same setup:

    That car is what I intended to buy when I got my first NX2000. The salesman was so slick that I forgot all about the removable back: The reason I wanted the car in the first place.

    Civicious: You do good things with EDs. The EG and EK are pretty luke warm, but those others are nice.

    You should try not owning a Civic for once.

    YEah, I always loved that Hatch. If I had it, I would just keep it in the garage and forgo the money.

    I am, however, surprised that you got that much for it. Not because I don't think it's not worth it, but getting the right price for a Civic that you've invested time into is tough as hell.

    Trust me, I know. I'm sitting on a mint CRX that I can't get 1/4 what I put into it.

    Edit: I also never noticed the paint flaws on it
