    Here's my baby I just bought on Saturday. It's a little rough because it's technically a project car but with time and patience, I'll have it better before the end of the year. The original owner had put all new parts in tons of areas around the mechanical side of the car. It has new axles, new brakes and cams, racing radiator (god only knows why), adjustable (i hope) lowering springs, and there's probably more I'm missing. It had a faulty VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor), the middle contact was broke, so I went to my local junkyard and yanked the VSS out of a 1995 Honda Civic EX and it works wonders. My odometer and speedometer work perfectly.
    Here's some pics.

    Well, the guy lied to me about that. He said it had abought 162,000, but the inspection sticker says 190,000 and the odometer reads like 191,200+.

    Sorry, I'm still learning, but thanks for the clarification. I love working on my honda and getting my hands dirty, so I'm trying my best to learn everything about the engine. I still don't know what half the buttons do in my car. Also, why is the dome light connected to the stereo? (I don't have one so it doesn't work. :3)

    It's automatic. My mom said I had to get an automatic car. I'm gonna learn stick sometime soon from my brother.

    And, I'm thinking just getting it clear coated with black or maybe a dark red.

    Hey I drive an automatic too.
    Though I'm going stick when I swap.
    Getting an h brace tomorrow!

    Looks pretty decent amber corners and good aftermarket tails already.
    Yu should use a polishinnor rubbing compound and then a thin layer of wax on ur headlights and tails, it'll clear em up alot!

    It's my brother's car. His timing belt went and hes selling it. He won't give me the wheels. My wheels are 195/60/R14.

    Also, what can someone do with the license plate number?
