      Cool, I knew lots of kids that drove these back in high school 12 years ago.

      Thanks for the flashback.

      Haha. I had a guy at a gas station over the summer stop me and say "Hey I used to own your car. It was mine in high school". I just looked at him and replied "I assure you, you did not". He replied it with, nope it's this car, mine was exactly like this. Then I had to explain to him I bought it brand new. He was all like "Ohhhh mine was exactly the same, sorry".

      Great looking car!

      A couple of my highschool friends and I worked at the local Honda dealership when these were new. As a result we've all maintained a soft spot for this generation of Si.

      Where are you located at? Sadly there arent many 10+ year old Hondas rolling around near my hometown of Cleveland without significant rust due to the liberal application of road salt during the Winter.
      The correct phrase is "I couldn't care less"

      I'm in Boston. We get a ton of salt on the roads here too. This hasn't been my DD for 10+ years however.

      We also have an owned-since-new 13 year old Civic coupe in our fleet. It's in the shop right now after it left me stranded in the middle of an intersection last Friday. SOHC VTEC power is enough to snap halfshafts when trying to make a left turn apparently.

      Ours has never seen a power buffer in its life, but after this repair is complete, I'll put some time into it and freshen it up a bit.

      Thanks. I'm leaning that way.....mainly b/c I'm lazy and don't feel like contorting myself into the back seat to undo everything. It's such a task b/c of how I have the downtubes passibg through the read side plastics.

      No I sold that a couple years back.

      Thank you sir. It hasn't been easy, especially the first few years when it was a daily driver. The last 10 it's been ok b/c it's always been a second car for me and luckily I've had a garage most of that time.

      lol I've had various different bottles kicking around in my parents garage fridge all this summer and into the fall...I'm thinking since this spring/early summer. There is actually a small liquor store near me that still has 6'ers in the fridge of this stuff.

      I went a few different times in this car. Honestly I'd have to look at the time slips. I know when it was stock it was laughable (granted I wasn't too experienced back then in 2002 or so) but it was in the 16s. A few years later and some mods I managed a respectable low 14 second pass with borrowed drag rads. Now though? Probably back to 16s lol

      Edit: Come to think of it I think it was closer to mid 14s. I'd have to look at the time slips from Epping NH. Like I said this was a while ago. I'm not really a fan of 1/4 mile racing tbh.

      Don't feel bad... I just picked up a Sam's 12-pack sampler that had this exact beer, along with the summer ale and others. It was on clearance for $10.97 and I can't pass up Sam's for that price...

      I love the Noble Pils so if they had it year round I'd be OK with it.

      Just for the heck of it, took my car to the grocery store last night and took a quick pic to prove it's not a garage queen

      That's because he is juvenile. Within the past couple of months he created a thread in Off Topic claiming that he walked out of his job because of this and that and whatever. It became very clear that he did no such thing (Who knows if he even had a job to begin with), and once called out on his bull****, he stopped responding. That's his MO on here. He will create a thread, ride it out for a while, and if people start calling him out (He will put everyone who does on 'Ignore,' as evidenced in his signature) he will disappear for a few weeks, and then pop back up again so that he can get a fresh audience and start the process all over again. Everything he claims is complete bull****, other than owning this Civic probably, since that's really the only thing he posts about consistently.

      because some of us like alcohol?? lighten up, it's not like he posted 20 pics of himself funneling Kegs

      spelling juvenile as "juvinile" is also pretty juvenile ...

      It's not a cage. It's actually a roll bar. There isn't any forward bars or brow bar.
