One of my dreamcars too, but consider it twice, I've heard a lot of bad things about these cars. They're getting too old, need really expensive fixing most of the time. And remember, it's a Porsche, anything that goes wrong with it costs a shitload of money.
For the love of God, dont buy this vehicle and become a stereotype. For people who live in the UK, the Honda Civic is a "chav" car. At first, having Honda dorks "challenge" me was fun, but now it is just irritating. My car is this:
Not everyone has the money to buy that car. And besides, I'd drive a honda too if I had the chance. A crx del sol, a hond isn't a chav car, the driver makes it so. Or the morons calling everyone in a particular car a chav just because they know how the car is named.
Hondas are great cars. They make wonderful budget track cars because they're built like Legos. Good suspension, light weight, and many engine options if you have a car that a B-series engine will bolt into.
The best part about them is that if you buy an older, cheap one they're pretty much disposable. So you can buy a nice engine, wad it up at the track, and transfer all your parts to another one.
*edit* I just saw the post you were quoting with the guy's post he was quoting... for $200 I wouldn't even think twice about that, I'd grab that in a heartbeat.
I have no problem with Hondas, it is just that in my experiences, the 16-24 year old males whom acquire 1992-2000 Civics seem to think that slamming it to the ground, putting a fart can on it and a body kit will magically make them faster. Flippy, I have seen this over and over and over and over again. It is to me, taking the easy way out. So my original point was, if the person in question was to acquire this Civic, I implore him to not go the STEREOTYPICAL ROUTE and not do what I mentioned above. Those 92-00 Civics have a almost silly anmount of potential too few have learned to exploit. I mean, just look at the front suspension on them! Amazing!
And I know what it is like to want a car BADLY and not get it, or not be able to afford it. It took me 5 years, 5 years of wanting and waiting desperately for a WRX, to save up a budget so I could afford to pay for it monthly.
And Flippy, I can understand your point of view; if I lived in a EU country, and had to pay the taxes you and others do just to own a vehicle, I would be hopping mad that some American could have such a flippant attitude towards a vehicle that you would consider owning.
But that is neither here nor there. I consider myself lucky, lucky that I work for a Subaru dealership, lucky that I met my wife, got married to her, and that we moved so we could both have better paying jobs, so that I was able to afford a vehicle that I lusted over for many years. Well, also faith in God to point me in the right direction so I can succeed in life, also.
I will say one thing, though. After owning this vehicle for a month, I will never go back to front wheel drive again. If anyone here owns a all wheel drive car, you know, YOU KNOW what I am talking about. It is almost...magical the way my car plants itself when it accelerates and in corners.
you Should on get are car if you badly need it ( for getting to work when theres no train or bus stops near you )
because even tho i could start saving for one theres no point , where i live i have my part time job and school within 15 minutes of my house ill only get the one im working on , on the road if it becomes declared a classic ( which will happen ) but untill then im on my bike
lol yeah ive spun mine in the wet but not in the dry, holds the road real wheel, u can feel it braking traction but it just wont spin (unless its wet)
driving a fwd car just doesnt feel the same now..
u say dont buy a civic because its a chavs car?? and then u come and tell us u own a scooby lmao thats what a chav with a job buys. just a poor mans evo IMO but each to thier own....
Luckily I see a lot of non-rice hondas around here. Although around my school there is this guy with a red Prelude, huge spoiler on it, really ugly. But I'd love such a car, if it's riced, I'll just un-rice it I love small rice, like white blinkers and stuff. I just found it a bad reaction to the guy with the honda.
Bawbag: I just hope you washed it Seems to be in very good condition, nice paint.
