to keep this from becoming tooo much of a history lesson, try to keep the replies & pics limited to just the last few cars you had right before your current GS... bring on the beasts....

my old '00 honda civic si / '91 civic hatch / '98 GS400

Thumbs up

Hahahaha, I have a 95 honda Civic (Wifes car, and gave my accord to my mother-in-law) As soon as I can get those pics I will post them up for both cars.

I still have the Civic sitting collecting dust in my driveway.

Cheers,

Sweet civic! For some reason i dont understand why there are so many ugly honda civics out there, it doesnt take much to beautify one. Honda civics can look awesome, and this is def a fine example

no pics, but i had a '99 chevy tahoe...the only mods i had done in 5 years were a pretty decent system, tint, and i removed all the chrome side molding and emblems.

things were so much simpler back then (and less expensive).

This is my old ES. 18's, Rotora's F/R, strut bar, AEM cold air, nice stereo.
I had a 92 Accord LX before the ES with nothing in it but a MONSTER stereo.

Before the GS i had a 95 mustang GT Black w/ tan interior... Cobra upper/lower intake, fenderwall air intake, flowmasters, H-pipe, 65mm TB, Cobra hood, slotted/drilled rotors..


I have to say that over 7 years that car was pretty good to me.. The only really major expense was getting the tranny rebuilt.. That car had about 150k on it and still ran great. No smoke, hesitation, etc.. The car also sounded pretty good for being a automatic.. I still have a place in my heart for mustangs..
