This picture was taken sometime during 1997, the first year of my car. At the time is was still bone stock and it wasnt even smoking yet!! I bought it with only 70,000 miles on it and the paint was cherry. Little did i know that civics are weak but i found out real quick when the tranny went at 86,000nmiles:(...it must of been all thoes burnouts. The spider gear was all torn up and the shifter fork for 1st and 2nd gear broke and the other had a lot of wear and tear on them. So it wasnt worth rebuilding it so i bought i used one for $1700.00 and my clutch was on its way out too so i replaced that as well with a stock clutch. The summer of 98 my car starting burning oil, but nothing to bad though. only when i was idling for a while or just started up the car, but the summer of 99 it smoke like crazy and all the time. When ever someone was behind me i would floor it and go all out and at times we couldnt even see the person behind us because all of the smoke i was putting out. Thoes were the good days. The car laster until the winter of 99. It was december and i went to go pick up nads and when i parked the car it started making a little knocking noise as if the valve were hitting the pistons so i tunr of the car and picked her up and then when i started up the car the knocking was so bad that the car stalled while idling. So i put it to the floor and started it up and drove it home. I didnt hit any stop lights or sign which was a good thing becauce i wouldnt of made it home. I was going as fast as i could which was barely 50mph!! There is a stop sign before my house and u could see if there was people coming and there wasnt so i just held it to the floor and blew by it and my car totally stopped running so i held me foot on the clutch and coasted in my driveway. At the time i was broke and needed my car to go to work and school. All i had was my bike so i road that untill late december. I got my motor rebuilt at a place in glenns fall, NY for $2200.00 including installation.

My car started rusting around the door and the paint was faded and i just thought it was time for the civic to get a new paint job. I looked around for a job deal and everything that sound cheap like 400-700 where places that everyone told me not to go because they use cheap paint and they get paint everywhere and it would come out that great and everywhere that people said would be a good place to get painted would end up costing over $2400+. So my friend that painted my friends BMW is going to paint my car for $1700.00 this included a left door new right fender and rear left quarter panel and rear bumper pice and high quality paint. So i let him have the car for almost the whole summer seeing that i didnt need it because i had the bike anyways.
