Picked up a spare car!

The gas mileage sucks on my truck so I picked up a car last week. I wasn't planning on buying one but I got an outrageous deal. It's a 96 civic. Its perfect cause my wife cant drive a stick and her car is a total piece and this will keep her out of my truck! Plus when I drive my wifes car I feel like a fag and this isn't so bad. 140K new timing belt, new gaskets, new belts, and new tires. The rims are great shape. $1,500.

The bad= ps window motor is bad, ds window slips off track so you have to guide it up, and ac has a leak but thats my gig and is already fixed! The seats are in good shape but the carpet needs some attention and some paint is popping off on the bumper and door molding but hey $1,500 I can deal with that!


It is freaking humid right now! Camera looks smokey!






My wifes peice



My truck





And of course my baby! Damn magnesium cover keeps oxidizing too quick!

My wifes civic came stock with 14inch alloys that look nice and are lite. a civic needs no bigger than a 15 inch wheel...

Yeah the wheels and tires most likely cost that much when he bought them

Appreciate the compliments! Its a automatic so it will never be a TUNER and the gas mileage is still better than the focus with the wheels. I am with ya on the factories but for the price I couldn't beat it. Besides if I ever sell it I think the rims would help. I bought it from a girl and she has some 16's for it I just have to dig em out of her shed.

I forgot to add the meanest of the bunch!

As for the nasty floor I changed my oil on my bike and my oil bucket had a big crack in it and spilled 4 qts of oil on the ground. This was like 6 months ago. I learned my lesson and check the bucket before use!
