    Finally, the Grand Ma GT's replacement

    Got the title in my name today, got the emissions done, and got the plates.

    1996 Civic EX
    1.6L vtec
    Sedan
    214,400 on the body
    110K on the motor
    5 speed

    Needs polishing.
    Body is a little rough by my standards, but nothing major. Interior is about perfect.

    I was getting more and more frustrated with the 'tards on craigslist. How could I trust someone to have maintained a vehicle if I couldn't count on them to call me when I wanted to give them money??

    This one kinda fell into my lap, guy wasn't really planning on selling. He had never listed it for sale, but saw a thread on the local forum I started about needing something. Got in touch, and it was what I needed. I know it has been maintained, so I paid a little more than I wanted too, but this will probably easily go another 150K miles.

    That's a great pick up. Glad you found something that will be reliable and is great on gas.

    Just now seeing the pics as I can't access them from work since work blocks most photo hosting sites.

    Good looking DD there. Looks relatively clean.

    Barely. Wheelchair fits, but it is cramped.

    I miss that car honestly. But this will likely be more reliable and get 10MPG better around town. Better as a DD for sure.

    Arent you concerned about the safety aspect of an older civic considering your daughter will be in the car so much?

    *can't tell if this is a stab at the TBSS or not.....*

    Most of the time I have Sara I will be driving the TBSS. For class/work/etc I will be driving this little thing around.

    Not a stab at all. Question didnt have anything to do with your TBSS, just the fact that an older civic isnt exactly a really safe vehicle to take a hit in.

    I thought maybe it was a stab at the fact mine has been in the shop for the last 5 weeks....
    Fucking paint work sucks.

    Sara won't be riding in it all that much really, just when needed. Bought the TBSS for her stuff, so it will continue to be used for that.
