I have freinds like those too... all your friend has to do is turn the car on and off when you holler at em too.... (and help you jack up the car )

as for so much smarter... I doubt it... just a backyard mechanic that'* delt with alot of weird things ... I spent some time in a dealership mech shop too ..learned a few new lil tips and tricks. mainly I deal in small oddball imports (lately anyways) I was working for toyota .. when a junkyard souped up tercel hatch that I had blew it'* motor ... got the delta from the dealership it was a trade in.. I only paid $300 and got this http://www.cardomain.com/id/heavytouring

like I said before I'm basically keeping it as a fun daily driver while building a go fast toy... (convertible festiva with a 1.8L turbo in the trunk... basically a full custom car... gonna take awhile to build) ... I'm no civic(or honda period) fan by any shape of the word... I perfer imports with actual cheap potenial (mostly toyota'*) ... the festiva is just something totally off the wall me and a friend planned out ... but that'* not till spring early summer at the earliest ... sooo back to Hbody talk

that'* a very clean car for its age man.. Mine needed many, many hours of scrubbing, just to get in its dirty state it is in now.. when a car is clean, and you bought it clean, is always a good sign of care, and love by the previous owner for the car.. which is always a good thing .

If only the girl I have helping me out knew what the ignition was..

the funny thing is... it'* VERY DIRTY... it'* been sitting for 6months... theres grime and leaf stains all over... scratchs and swirls in the paint... the pics of it look alot better then in person... I'm still deciding what color to paint it... if I do .. I really don't like red (and yet ended up with a completely red car ) I'm thinking a very very dark/deep mettalic blue... and blacking out 95% of the chrome... custom tails ...16" 2000 regal rims...3.5inch drop etc etc ...

should be fun.. and relatively easy for each part... but total time involved would cost someone else a pretty penny
