Man, Mike, she was a beauty.

Not sure if you remember, but I bought mud flaps off of you way back. Had them on mine until I sold her.

I got to see the tail end of this car. Definitely one of my favorites.

Miss this OG car.

If you can, you should post the pics of the rust repair, so people can see what it looked like done the right way.

Thanks! I think you came up just as I was winding down. I do remember selling you the mudflaps. Were you still in FL? I remember how nice the ITRs looked on your cars.

Thanks! You liked the 92-93 OEM tails? I always thought the red/clears looked better. They were actually a trade via Maple of all people since the 1st set of red/clears I got from rebels leaked like crazy for some reason. I still remember sitting in my dorm room circa-2005 photoshopping pictures of your old car for you.

Yeah, it's actually coming up on 8 years next week since I stuffed it.

This is the only picture I've got of the quarter panel removed.

Ya I was still in Florida. I think that was the time in between me getting out of the military and moving to NYC.

Boy those were the days!

I was hanging out with Felipe and Dean all day hahaha

I keep forgetting how nice that car was when you were finally done with it.

I wonder what you'd have done with it had you not stuffed it. Something tells me you'd still have it. It would be on a set of real C2s, riding on better suspension, and maybe H22A swapped. Everything still fully functional and utterly practical as a daily driver.

Honestly, I don't know. I was seriously thinking about selling it around the time I crashed it as I wanted a new car since I had graduated school. If I were to build it now, I think it would be a lot different than it was then...maybe not the specific parts, but the caliber of work would be better. I would have put more effort into fixing issues than trying to make it look super nice. Having a car that could make the winter without leaking would have been nice!

That's true!

Though aside from your rear quarter rust repair, most of your mods weren't high-end. They were perfect for how you both used and stored the car (outdoor parking, daily driving in all weather and all seasons... some legit Racing Harts would've been wasted on that!)

Eh, the only replica things I had were the wheels, and that was because you couldn't get the RH Evo new anymore and I didn't want to risk spending that much money purchasing privately. The only things that weren't high end was the header and struts, everything else were very nice for what they were.

Yep. I had OEM quarters cut off a car from somewhere in the southwest. A local shop fabbed new inner panels off of a Maxima or something they had laying around and then painted the back half of the car and the roof.

I took the time to add the 92-93 trunklid as I liked it worlds more than the 90-91 design and then added an OEM-style spoiler.

I am jealous you still have pictures. I lost pretty much all of mine when Sony shut down Imagestation.

This was a nice ride. I still miss my first one but my Civic seems like a spiritual successor

I have everything backed up on a bunch of redundant drives. I still have a bunch of photos I don't even have posted. I lost a few when Imagestation went down, but nothing that I don't think I have duplicates of somewhere. I actually have them categorized by year. Some of them are actually scans of physical photos. I have a few videos too actually.

It's wild to think how long ago I purchased the car...April of 2001 IIRC. The wild thing is that a 2005 Accord is now the same age as mine was when I bought it. I've owned my STi longer than I owned the Accord.

Really funny thing is how much used car prices have changed. I bought my first CB, which was a 93, in 03, for $2200 with 93K miles on it. No rust either since it was a down south car which was a big deal in NYC. An 06 Accord EX today goes for like $5-8K. I think Cash for Clunkers permanently changed the game, but also used cars are just better now. Aside from the paint problem and a little cold weather rattle my Civic feels brand new to me.

I have all my pics on Imgur and Photobucket now but I need to back them all up. I hope/wonder they kept the originals and didn't shrink them down and destroy them. For vacation photos and shit I have everything backed up on drives at home.

Man, you could get some deals in NYC. Mine was $4,750 in 01 with 79K on it and rust. I still wish I held out for an EX, but finding any Accord back then for sale was a good deal. At least mine was a 5MT though, which was more important than anything at the time. I wanted manual so bad, and since I wasn't 18 yet my Mom legally had to purchase the car and transfer ownership to me and she all but refused to let me get a stick.

Part of me still wishes that I purchased the 90 Integra I found. It was black on black leather, sunroof, spoiler and 5MT. But then I would have ended up in a whole different world and who knows how that would have turned out.
