Well with taxes coming back and expected any day... I'm buying another car, a work and winter car that is. lol don't laugh... 1986 Honda Civic hatchback, 1.3L 2BBL carb, 4spd on the floor in all of its massive HP glory! lol I'm actually buying it off of my uncle and of course it needs a little work, but hell, it's almost as old as I am.

that would be sweet, but no. this will be a strictly work car for now. Needs some work on the rocker panels and other minor stuff.

I haven't checked the import engine market in a long long time but you should be able to do a swap cheap.. Like a B16 or something..

man i understand the whole beater thing, but why on earth would you get something that old? i'd want something at least from the 90's so its reliable as well as cheap.

Or you could have bought a 2000 Saturn off of me!

Also needs some work -- only a front bumper though, being a Saturn they never rust [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I drive a beater 90 C1500 that i brought for 500, 2 years ago and knock on wood its still going.. I'm thinking swapping to a B16 or 18 would prob get better fuel mileage.

agreed! lol. It's an 86 with less than 100k and its been in the family since 86. My Aunt bought it new, and then moved to NC for 10+ years and when she moved back, she bought a CRV. My uncle took the Civic, and drove it and completely rebuilt the engine and put a new clutch in it at 60k. The thing runs like a champ, its just been sitting for two years so it needs a little TLC

this thing gets better mileage than my G5. I drove it for about 6months between my Accord and my GTP. I only had to fill up maybe once every three weeks, and avg 33mpg in the city.

The G5 does pretty good mpg as well, but not like the civic!

Going from 37-38mpg Saturn SC1, to the 21-22mpg Evo hurt a bit, but the fun more than made up for it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The worst part, the Sky gets a comfortable 34mpg freeway, sometimes even better. Got 36.8mpg on a trip to Detroit in it (the only long trip it's been on).

Here's a quick pic of the civic... I'll get some better ones once I get it all cleaned up and a few bugs worked out

I'm not a big fan of the k series... a B16 or B18 would be just fine lol Honestly i doubt i take it any further than it stands, unless something happens to the motor

First trip to work and back with out the assistance of a tow service! The Civic has a mostly clean bill of health. Still gotta figure the low speed stalling... Ugh damn carborated motors lol

Thought maybe the accelerator pump, but me and one of the tech's at work tore into it and actually found that the low idle adjustment was bottomed out. We adjusted it way up and now seems pretty good, but we'll have the best test for it tomorrow morning
