A sleeper is a car that is unassuming on the outside and a beast on the inside. This term was thrown around quite frequently when describing Jezek's hatch. Stock silver paint and little to no exterior mods along with an h22 heart is what made this car a "sleeper". Still, clubcivic members wanted more looks as evidenced by his previous defeats in ride of the month. Growing more and more tired of the sleeper look, Jezek finally decided to throw some more money into the car and get a nice silverstone metallic paint makeover. Things would change when Jezek found himself face to face with a fellow enthusiast's hatch with the very same ssm paint jezek desired. At that moment the new color of the car had to be changed, and the new color would be phoenix yellow. Along with several carbon fiber products, Jezek completely shook off the "sleeperness" of his hatch. The most memorable part of this transformation was Jezek;s update thread. With a future mods list and a few teaser pics, the clubcivic community was hooked. The wait was well worth it. In one of the most lopsided votes in ride of the month history, this yellow hatch earned the title of august ride of the month.

Great job on the car. I'm defintly jelous now! LOL j/k. Honestly I'm not really a fan of the newer hatchbacks (being a bubble butt lover) but after seeing this one I'm in love. Defintly a good representation of CT and all the fellow H22ers. Duece Duece in the hatch cant f*ck around.
