I took a week off of work to complete 2 restorations. I was sitting here this morning thinking "wow, I need a break from this".

After looking at some pictures of my restorations, I now know why I feel that way. I have done too many. I only have one more planned and I am going to take my time - maybe 3 years and that will be a EF Civic drive train into a 78 Civic.

Here is a sample of the cars I have done in the last 5 years and a status of each;

1979 Civic with 1.6 L Accord engine - 99% Complete. Just some minor things like graphics to this one. Finishing this week - I will keep this one;

1990 CRX HF. Got side-swiped by uninsured prick-up truck. Not sure what I am going to do with it now. It got trashed and I got no $ in the accident. The other driver was at fault. Maybe put powertrain in 78 Civic

1990 Civic SI - Curently not racing, may put powertrain in 78 Civic.

My daughters autocrosser. Restored with her help. Currently she is racing this car.


1989 CRX SI - Fully restored. Overbored pistons. Noce car. Low miles


1992 Civic VX - given to my daughter as a daily driver.


1985 MR2 - given to my daughter as a summer daily driver. Candidate for modification to autocross in future. Just finished yesterday!


1988 CRX SI - keeping this one for autocrossing



1978 Civic 1.2L (Engine swap candidate)
1979 Civic 1.6L CVCC (from accord)
1985 MR2 Hardtop
1988 CRX SI for racing
1989 CRX SI
1990 CRX HF (in car accident, but still drivable)
1990 Civic SI

Daughter has 1989 CRX SI autocross equipped
