Ok, I got a 90 civic hatch for free from my mom, it was her old car that she drove back and forth to chicago everyday in to go to work. So she gives it to me and i start buying shit for it and everyone is like youre never gonna turn that in to anything, so im like "wait and see" and theyre like bullshit. What is with that???
Did this happen to anyone else or just me??
Here is what i plan on doing
b18c swap
high gloss midnight black exterior paint
16" White Kosei Racing Rims
Red and black leather interior
And some other odds and end

Tommy,

Call em haters, and smirk knowing that you have a tight ass ride that you can do anything you want with. Seriously, how many new car owners can even contemplate a motor swap? They cant afford to. LABlue is rght, the 4th gen hatch is a great car and with the money you save over newer car you will have a bunch of fun modding it. Is it a stick?

I have seen some fucken sweet 89-91 HB! Sweet enough to make me think about buying one! Plus, its not a common car to do. Not as much as the 92+ Civic or 94+ Integra! Keep at it!

:cool:

what the faheck?
He asked if it was a stick and you said, 'yes it's a 4 speed'. 4 speed stick?!?! better hurry and get that swap. anyway, yeah, those cars are totally fix-up-able. Handle your business and prove em' all wrong. But as you progress, you'll find (as most people do) things don't always turn out as planned. Good luck with that.

well, i used to have a civichatch 93' and my mum sold it because the car would usally turn off and the car would be gliding down until it goes to a complete stop. so now, when i go to my freinds, i sold it, they say good on ya! go buy a 180sx for the same rpice and plus it has more hp and its rear wheel. im still in love with the civic hatch, but im thinking of the 180sx now. im in australia, so i dont know how good or crap a 180sx over there is. :)

Get used to getting flamed for drving a honda. When you start smoking people once you get that b18 in there then some people will have a change in attitude. But there will always be haters, no matter how good looking or fast your car is. You just gotta blow those people off.

I have a friend who was given an 88 legend, it was a big piece when he got it, and people laughed when he started putting work into it. He got it painted, rims, lowered, spoiler. It looks really nice now.

fock then i think it is a badass car i want one too. the black looks so fucking nice on that car. my opinion keep it really clean looking no outrageous body kits. i suggest getting the 91 si front bumper and just drop it. my opinion don't get the white rims. get silver. oh yeah swap is a must my friend had a 4 speed they suck. sorry but it's the truth. peace

go for it man, you have a great car to mod and do a swap with, what everyone's been sayin' is right, how the haters will talk, but they're gonna think twice when you spank 'em, b18cYA!:) nice choice on future rims too.

be glad that these are people you could give the finger to...

im constantly battling parents that complain about me spending too much on my car. i wish i were dealing with haters. dealing with haters is easier than dealing with parents :p im swimming against the current. but i guess its the extra hurdle that makes it more valuable to me.

i used the haters as my motivation to get it done and make them stick their foot in their mouths. prove them wrong.
