Rescue My Ride: Honda Civic Si

Posted March 30, 2009 5:15 PM by CarDomain

This basketcase rescue actually involves a whole bunch of cars that otherwise would likely have been junked. Robert started with a 300-dollar Civic that had been run into a fire hydrant.

Then he picked up a VTEC and 5-speed for $200 from a friend who'd wrecked his own Honda. Then to fix the mangled front clip, he got forward sheetmetal off yet another Civic that a guy was parting out. Then he picked up a junk Integra for 200 bucks, changed his mind about the Civic's nose, and is in the midst of swapping over the Integra's front clip.

When Robert's ride is done, it's going to be a great example of built-not-bought. Cool project!

I must say, that looks nothing like my little Si from days gone by. I loved that car... buzzing around in that thing was a blast. The only problem: rain = potential death
