Talking Yay!!!

Haha, im excited, i am going to buy a 94' civic dx from a guy for $750, this will be my project car, the paint job sucks, and it burns a little oil every now and then, but 750 is a great price, it runs smooth(most of the time), and there aren't any mods to the car except for a muffler tip! And best of all..... It's a 5 SPEED!!!! :smiles: I'm really excited! This will be a fun project, the first thing i'm going to do is convert it to an auto.... lol im just kidding, i was to swap the engine first so it will be a fun little to keep me busy for the rest of the summer, I'll post pics in about a week when i get it!

:Smiles:

I just think h22's are more work to put in civics than it's worth.

:Bawl: Well.........

forget the civic um.......

the guy i was going to buy it from called me about 30 minutes ago, he said he couldn't find the title and that it would probably be another 2 or so weeks before i could have the car in my name, which by all means i was willing to wait for, good car for the money, i fell in love with it.......

well, here's the downside, about ten minutes into our lovely conversation.... he gets to the really bad news....

his son had totalled the car 2 hours before......

he hit the back of an 18-wheeler doing 75 in a 30, he was drunk and he was out to go to the store to buy MORE freakin beer........ :bawl:

The complete engine to the car came through and landed in the passenger seat of the car,and the kid that was driving had a minor case of whiplash is all, and this is weird.... when he hit it took the COMPLETE exhaust system and left it like 500 ft. behind the stopping point in almost perfect condition, the cat. had some dents but that was it, still comected and all, and he gave it to me for free because "i couldn't find the title"... like i said to ben earlier...

how about you totalled my soon to be car?!?!?!?!

bad night.......
