I want that car. Actually, I want that motor. Teal hatches ftw! Get it if everything checks out. Makes sure you look for rust under the car and in the spare tire well, older civics are kinda prone to cancer

Yea but it's not a bright teal its a darker one kinda like yours but where is the spare tire well? It has a new paint job so all the rust if there was any should have been bondo'd and painted over but I'll check if I get this beast.

the spare tire is in the hatch under the floor, just lift the carpet and you'll see the fiberboard cover

Another tip, take a magnet, wrap it on a rag(so it wont scratch the paint) and run it over the panels to check for too much bondo on repairs. The magnet won't stick to bondo and that will tell you if there's been crappy repairs on the past
