Last Sunday it was a ripper of a day in Wellington City, so after getting burnt all day, we decided to go for a bit of a tiki tour and catch the golden hour of light and take some pics of Joe’s recently reassembled Civic.
From the following pictures you will note a few things:
– It’s pretty low. Low enough that the mudflaps scrape along the road like a bit of colby on a cheese grater
– It retains it’s tow bar – not usually a mod bestowed on a weekend track car, but Joe also uses this as a car to tow his jetski around on occasion.
– the paints a little shabby – yep, it’s a track hack….
A casual Honda D-series motor resides under the lid. In Joe’s eyes this makes it the perfect track hack to learn the ropes in. He can push it to the absolute limit on the circuit, without worrying how much it’s going to cost to replace the motor if he happens to run it a little low on oil round a left hander – they may not be as fast as your sweet 400kw SR20 in your Silvia, but they’re just as fun, and a fraction of the cost to replace when you send a rod through the side of the block. There’s as many D-series blocks out there as there is genital warts in Hamilton – FUCKEN HEAPS MATE.
Anyway, enough shit talk about the wonderful metropolis that is Hamilton here’s the pics of a very functional (unless there’s a judderbar or awkward driveway) Honda EG Civic.
