Default 3rd Gen Civic

Well I guess noone else owns a 3rd gen civic. Well I am the proud owner of a 1986 Honda Civic 1.5L Carb Sedan. Its a beater, but she is on her way up in the world. It generally is a good car, VERY VERY good on gas, I can stretch 10 bucks over 2 weeks doing daily commutes. Very comfortable, if you can find one in good condition. Spacious, bigger than alot of Civics out there today. Design is very simple, very boxy, with some what of an agressive stance. Not the fastest Civic, but it seems the automatic transmission on my Civic wants to be a manual. Its very peppy and rev happy. I'd say 0-60 in about 7-9 secs. Big trunk, [you know for the bodies or sub boxes]. VERY hard to find aftermarket parts and accessories. So basically its best to keep it JDM style as the new generation likes to say. OEM parts all over, maybe a few accesories here and there. Well thats my review, feel free to ask or add some more.

There is always custom parts you could work into it! You should do the engine swap and trick everyone on the road!

Your not alone on owning a 3rd gen civic. I own a 1986 Civic SI HB 1.5L FI & I love it. I'm getting 35+ MPG plus it has alot of giddyup >. I can't seem to find any place where I can get a rear wing/spoiler for it though =[. Does anyone know of a place where I might be able to find a rear wing/spoiler for an 86 civic?
