    Great choice of posts today! A '70 Mustang Grande hardtop was my first car and a (three year old, used) '93 SE-R was the first car I ever picked out and bought for myself – i.e. not a hand-me-down of any sort. These are wonderful cars all-around. I loved the high-tech (at the time), high-revving engine juxtaposed against the crank windows.

    Good call on fifth gear popout. I was lucky to have it happen with about 2K miles and 6 months left on the drivetrain warranty. Of course, I had the dealer put in a Jim Wolf clutch at the time…

    I can't justify it myself, but surely SOMOENE's got to want to grab this thing ASAP?

    Sure, a current Civic Si has more power but you have to deal with that double-deck dash and horrid outward visibility.

    This is a real car, and deserves a good home.

      Hey I like the split dash! But that outward visibility thing is a real issue on any new car. I miss being able to run stop signs with confidence.

    They don't use salt on the roads in Washington State so rust is fairly rare here.

      Unfortunately they have started since the snowpocalypse took down mayor Nickels in Seattle. Seattle uses it and I saw some in Bellevue last month when we had that cold snap. The DOT also uses it in eastern WA.

      This car looks like a steal. Just repaint the bumpers and you have a really nice survivor. Wish I had room…
