Looking to get my hands on a super clean "JDM YO" style import like a swapped civic/rsx/s2k/anything RHD. There was a super sweet civic down here on craigslist for 8grand that was completely done up, volks, brides, you know the deal but he sold it the day before I called, ugh. Not really looking for speed just something that would be fun to absolutely WAIL on and not give a shit about.

Where do I look for this kind of stuff? modified car trader has nothing, the Honda forum has nothing but kids shit boxes or stock civics??
Craigslist has nothing in all of florida



*Not into the completely slammed hellaflush go .5mph completely sideways over a speedbump type deal.

buy a stock car and do it all yourself.

S2000, and I'd also consider the TSX. Its like a Si for grown-ups. Considering they're around 30k new, and 25k with a few miles, Id say its a good value. Honestly anything 4 cyl that's light with a VTEC and Manual is an absolute blast to drive.. That's why their so popular. Most pull HARD all the way up to 8k. And then that moment at around 4-5k when the car opens up and starts actually going.. There's no way to describe it. I beat the shit out of my car, I drive full out and shift at 8k everyday and I've had zero problems. Good luck.

First off any RHD car less than 25yrs will be illegal in FL 99.99% of the time, 2nd thing is, it's pretty difficult on these roads. With that said, what is your budget on Jdm style car?

Im not sure what a rhd 8th gen civic type R would cost in the states or something of that caliber. I don't see 30grand being out of the question if it is extremely nice and rare but the less I spend the less I have to give a shit about it which is part of the idea.

It doesn't even have to be "JDM" so to speak just a converted rhd rsx type s/w.e with a bunch of goodies on it would suffice.

If you want a rhd integra shell I can help you out.
Completely uninterested in building my own car. Did this twice with and evo 8 and X. Rather let someone else put 500hrs and not get paid into it.

Most work im interested in doing is tinting and wrapping the car myself and swapping a steering wheel.


Thanks tho



these being inexpensive cars I have no problem buying sight unseen from CA if there are tons of pics so that opens up tons of options I would think. Ill be ready to write a check by the end of the week once I've figured out what jap stuff I really like.

The suby is right up my alley...

I just got my grandmas 97 Subaru legacy automatic I wanted since I was a kid, waiting for me at my place up north as the new beater car with a permanent bike rack on the back. Was considering a trade with my dealer on a new 14 sti for the z06 and 11k but cant make up my mind. always liked the subys
