so tempting to sell my 2000 integra for this, looks like an all original b16 del sol
So I picked up a 98 civic ex 5 speed with a blown motor and zero rust for 800 bucks!
I rebuilt the motor and now have it back on the road with 227 miles on my fresh engine. Its such an awesome feeling when your driving around a car that you built.
Suspension and brakes next week. I want to get some sort of OEM honda/acura wheels for it as well.
Also see my e30 lurking in the backround.
Good thread! Aside from VW I have a big love for Honda. My first road going car was a 1990 CRX DX in silver. I bought the car when I was 15 and had to have my dad drive it home for me. I wrecked it 4 months later passing ab F350 in a neighbor hood on a 90 degree turn (what can ya do). I still think about how much I loved that car. The interior is just amazing IMHO, handles well, it's all there. If I could ever come across one down here that hasn't been destroyed it would replace my Mk3 daily. Sadly in Texas TONS of them have been just hacked up totally.
Just woke up from an overnight drive from LA. Went to Nisei Showoff and saw plenty of properly put together cars, unlike the cars showing at the other show happening at the same time in Long Beach.
I don't take pictures cause I'm more into motor builds, but this Legend caught my eye.
and the interior, complete with tape deck and Sony discman --
I met Colin (phryxis) and he was taking pictures. I'm sure he'll be posting pictures from the show.

Stock for stock, the ITR is a bit more capable, but with some mods the FG2/FA5 just leaves it behind. Where the ITR really excels is in autoX (due to 250-300lb less) and some subjective 'feel' categories.
Yeah that's interesting because there definitely is a small trend towards period correct styling going on right now...Awesome turbo wheels. We'll have to add those to the thread, never knew Volk made any like that. I wonder if 90's period correct is going to be the new styling direction.
Some of you may remember my expert painter's tape vinyl TWSS/awesome face and Forever Alone face from last year. Well, it's that time of the year again! Time for ITR Expo! I'll take pics and make a thread documenting the event later (it's on the 20th and 21st), but here's what livery my car will be sporting at this fabulous event:
The driver's seat:
The boot, providing tailgaters humor en route since 2011:
I'd like to thank MUGEN for sponsoring this fabulous wing:
And finally, this year's guest of honor:
Gigantic blue tape pedobear is pretty amazing! I really need to try and attend an expo sometime. I bet it's awesome to hear a ton of B18C5s blasting around the track!
I got some more work done on my motor and trans.
I got the OEM serial number sticker back on the trans and also made a little stencil to try and mimic the factory painted "S4" designation on the transmission. I thought it came out pretty good.
