i wouldn't say "very fast". lol

probably b16 in an EG territory...

"very fast" is "very misleading". lol


what happened to the wheels... they look gold or something...

i beat the hell out of a tercel all the way to FL, and it was slow.

I dunno it could be decently quick. Low 14's high 13s probably.

how would you know? you dont even have a running b16. B)

the motor also has torque. a characteristic that seems to elude hondas.

did you use base/clear or something else? i know there's paint that you can just shoot and not have to clear between coats. i don't know too much about paint but i think after you wetsand it, you should spray a coat of clear back over it and then wax it. should shine it up nicely.

nice job btw.

i would have had to laugh a little if it was a 3 banger. At least he stuck with a 4.

btw I think the paint looks good.
