    i want a car i can fuck with and make it crazy. i found a dealer with a 99 civic hatchback that was in an accident and was selling it for 1200 but he said hed go to 900 to get rid of it. im considering buying it. he said the engine n tranny is complete n that it had 64k on it. basically its all body work cuz da car runs...wat do you think, i did some shoppin around and all the body parts will run me about 2000...

    Nah they still undergroundish about there work (but they working on it). but i can give you info on them. , can you do your own work? cuz they could just hookyou up with where to get parts from for cheep. and install your self.i can tell you from just looking at it. its all bolt on stuff. so itsnot hard. i could even do it for you over nite. they charge next to nothing for labor. they will do 30 bucks an hour if youtold them i sent you. and thats probably a 2-3 hour job for them. expect new part jobs. but they don't count waiting down time. so holla at me and let me know.

    if i was you i would buy the car! and just do it with no thinking. it doesn't seem that much of damage to me.

    there from Burlington Vermont. like three hours away. so you would have to talk to them about towing it for you. no that i just thought of that. just go ebay on it and get a body kit front bumper, some nice nices and some new fenders like some Z3s. all for cheap! trust me that the way to go.its all bolt-on work.

    dude just do your thing. i got some stalkers on here hating me, just cuz i know cars and they don't. Dude it sounds like a good deal. low miles.not that old. with potential! go for it. go show if you want. its better then the kid that wants the midsized drifting car. and or do both like alot of kids. its what i do.

    Nothing is wrong with show... but why the fuck will you buy a piece of shit salvage car and turn it into show? It is not like it is a 67 mustang 0r 69 camaro or something it is a fucking civic.
