    Anyone out here interested in cars, trucks, and bikes?

    What do you drive? Any mods?

    Im building a 93 civic coupe....well more like restoring it right now lol Mods will happen later in life.


    here are some updated shots. The original condition was just horrendous...I completely redid the interior. It used to be DX grey but now I have EX dark grey. Completely detailed the interior and practically have it looking like new.

    I work offshore in the Gulf of Mexico with a rotation of 14 days offshore and 14 days at home. This past time at home, I took it to get a movie and some ice cream with my wife. It hardly gets driven, just sits in the garage all pretty.

    Never put it on the strip and don't think I ever will. I like to tear people up on the street from time to time, but that's about it.

    I think that when I take it out from time to time, instead of driving it all the time, less people see it this way and more people appreciate it when I do take it out. I'm always getting thumbs up or people stopping to ask questions. Otherwise, it would be like, "oh it's him again."

    I LOVE cars! it's my main photography subject. I have a '68 Beetle that my dad and I restored(ish). she's now The Black Rose, and I've had her for almost 5 years =)

    1600cc engine, new 4-speed tranny (less than 4k miles on it). it's my goal one day to put a porsche engine in it. :mrgreen:

    before (bought for $800):

    after:

    then we had to get new tires for it, but new whitewalls are expensive.
    currently (in front of Morro Rock):

    Slug-a-bug!!!

    Nice looking VW. I favor the whitewalls more than the all black around the wheel area.

    Just to critique the photo a little, it would have been 100% different if you would have been looking off in the other direction.

    Nevertheless, good looking car.

    The current project. I wish I had some more pics but I only focused on the rust before moving the car into the garage.

    71 volvo 1800e. This will be my third one, and this one is far worse off than any other that I've built. I've basically got to replace all the lower bodywork and floorpans, as well as one of the frame rails.

    Interesting car. Not something you see everyday, which makes it unique. I didn't know volvo made cars back then. I can only remember my aunt having an older 80's model grocery getter.

    When you finish the rebuild, I'll challenge you to a 1/4 mile race? Probably wouldn't be fair, but just thought I'd offer.
