Music City Matt's 1989 Civic
I hope this thread will be reaches the community well. These cars are getting hard to find and fly well under the radar of many car guys. I think we are one viral bit (Jalopnick, YouTube) away from an explosion in EFs. In 2009 you told me square body Chevy's, RWD Volvos, E30s, EGs, I would have laughed. So, everything has its turn. Is it ours?
I hope this is the community to make it happen in.
Why these cars are great one might ask?
They are well built cars- Seriously! Surprisingly rigid, trick suspension, fit and finish etc. Put it next to a contemporary chevy corsica and you get the picture.
They're relatively cheap- Have you priced a well sorted square body Chevy, RWD Volvo, E30, EG, lately?
Huge aftermarket- Honda D/B/K is the Small block chevy of our generation
Easy to modify- Easy to jack and support bc of light weight. Simple design with minimum electronics.
Fun to Drive- Once dialed in, they are as fun to drive as any small RWD car.
Well styled- These cars posses a quirky lines and angles that serve as a refreshing counterpoint to the current trend of jellybean cagers or beetle-esque crossovers.
With all that said, Let's talk about my car in the next post!
