This is my second car, purchased May 31/06. I just paied off the loan on my van a year early and found out that my boss had decided to sell her car. I test drove it, and because of my good credit rating, I was approved for another loan! The purchase price was $4400 CDN for a 1994 Honda Civic LX Special Edition sedan. When I had the papers transferred to my name, this car had, believe it or not, 55,200 KMs on it! Completely stock. All mats, manuals, keychains, tape deck, original keys and code tag intact and present. It was even fitted with a factory Honda security system. I have since added a JVC KD-AR560 deck, two 6" Alpine S-types, built-in Sirius salellite radio tuner, iPod interface, and the Eliminator battery run-down protector.
Originally, I had plans to buy another car toward the fall to take my van off the road to work on it over the winter (thats my poor VW bus, sitting in the background of pic 1) Last winter was rough on the already bad body. I plan on stripping it down completly, give the shell to a body shop for a few months to repair and repaint it. I'll take it back, replace all the rubber, door panels, canvas top, etc.. and have myself one beautiful classic.
... But this car came along and I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I'm looking forward to a working rear window defroster, block heater, non-leaky seals and effective HEAT this winter!
