The Civic

Recommended Posts

When the wife said she wanted a civic as a first car she wasn't expecting this. 77,000 k original with a 2 speed honda matic. Have since upgraded and passed this beast onto the sister. I still get the "privilege" of servicing it!! I had a manual one a long time ago and I drove it off the clock 160km/h plus.

 

Auto has 4.11 final drive

 

Manual has 4.93 final drive

 

with 12" wheels you do the math.

 

REVS! I've still got my original engine in the shed. Mostly stock just toyed with the carb/timing.

Sweet lil Civic!! I had a 4 door wagon one of these as my first car! Did deadly handbrake turns and huge rollbacks!

Never missed a beat either!

 

Very tidy! :)

a dude I used to work with had one of these, brown. Dunno what the clock had on it but his mother owned from new. It was, and I say this knowing full well the emotion it stirs in people overrated. Proper overrated. Immaculate. Showroom condition. Impeccable.

 

It still had plastic covering the door trims.

Careful..... Stereotyping us Italians or the Greek race isnt cool buddy.

They either are or aren't?

I bought my ride off a Croatian fellow. Very well looked after.

I've inherited the civic back from my sister.

 

I'll take some photos soon that will make you cry. She's really run down now. Mechanicals are still overrated, but the paint is shagged.

 

Luckily centre road has delivered.

 

I've sourced:

 

Full rip free vinyl interior

 

crack free dash

 

drivers door and guard

 

manual conversion.

 

This is my new winter project. I don't wanna poo poo toyotas, but a ohc 1200cc car that weighs 680kgs still flys.

 

Look out for it next spring on the car runs.

I think this is the only kind of Honda Civic that I like (at all) & you a have an incredibly fine example! Looking good :y:

 

My high-school Japanese teacher had one of these (he hated it though), got a lift with him (a no-no nowadays!) a couple of times & he used to absolutely flog every last bit of speed out of it. Great car :)
