    So my best friend calls me the other day and is like "dude, you're gonna love me." I say why... he says "I just got you an 87 civic hatch".......

    I'm like ok.... cool. So long story short I just got a honda. I don't want to drive it, I'm against them, but then again its another project.... also I was just considering giving it to my sister, shes going to start driving soon, and I thought I'd be a nice older brother and give it to her (she won't drive my escort). But my friend wants me to supe it up (hes a honda guy) but then my sis wouldn drive it (I'm not even sure if she'll drive it stock.....its ugly? yeah i know shes ungrateful). I also considered driving it while I turbo the escort in the summer and when I finish the escort I'll give it to my sister when the escort is finished... she gets her license in august. What should I do????

    well give it to your sister or burn it then drown it in holy water or shoot a silver bullet into the block. I heard thats the only way to keep yourself from becoming a ricer honda guy.

    I say drive it while you mod the scort.

    I used to drive a 92 civic , and was able resist "riceing it" instead I RACED it into the ground. (It was called "Crash Test Ducky" it was held togeather by duct-tape)

    I say keep it, drive it as a daily driver! they are decent reliable vehicles. dont rice it out and it's fine.
    I sported a stock 87 teggy. Loved the flip ups. would still be rolling it today if I didn't get hit. couln't find another decent gen1 teg for cheap, so i got a gt. Kinda glad I did.

    So far my Teg's been more reliable then all of my escorts ive owned combined. That being said it gets more attention then I care for. My escort never got that and I Liked it.

    I've not dealt with too many of them. The most I dealt with in Civics was a slipping clutch. I tend to avoid Hondas like the plague, although currently get to deal with an '89 Accord SEi...and hate it passionately. I have never seen any other car that had its oil pan rust through. Gotta love that Honda reliability.

    ^ That's gotta be the stupidest comment I've seen.

    Allyou guys know how reliable honda's are. Look at most 92-95's on the road. Most are running around with 200, 300+ on the odometer.

    Honda's are great cars, great mileage, great reliability. Just some owners are wankers.

    You should read some of your own comments before you try to criticize others. Sorry if you took it personally about Hondas, I can understand that foreign auto roots can grow deep for some. But, if you'd cared to actually read my thread before acting like a moderator, you'd have noticed I stated the year ('89) which is a little before '92-'95 model years you tout.

    doesnt the reliability of the car have A LOT to do with how it was taken care of? maybe the ones you got were just severely neglected.

    My 88 Accord LXi had like 290,000 miles on it when I traded it off to get my 95 F-150. I liked it, it was a 5 speed, had power sunroof, pw, and pl, and the A/C worked. It did however change it's oil on it's own, but so did my Flareside. I trusted that car to go anywhere I needed it to go.

    ^ yeah i bet ur awd matrix could do that... this wasn't the best i did, i almost got up on the hood but as soon as i started to catch and get up on it the bumper ripped down and my tires ain that big to just catch on the hood without a good step up like the bumper... oh well it was still satisfying

    ps: this was done without axle lockers, hell yea its still free and i can do that.
