1994 Honda Civic vx MN

It pains me to do this but my wife is getting a company vehicle so I will be driving her car (C-Max). And as many are, we are limited on parking space.

Location: Cottage Grove,MN
Contact: post here or private message me here
Price $1600 cash only/no trades

Here is what I've done since I bought her:

-New windshield
-New front struts
-New rear tires
-New driver seat belt (replaced by local Honda dealership)
-New radiator
-New idle air control valve
-New spark plugs
-New alternator
-New battery
-Anti theft battery dis-connect switch installed

I had planned on keeping her quite a bit longer that's why I spent the $$$ in new parts. I had planned on new quarters and full repaint but ran out of time before winter.

As you can see MN winter road salt has imposed its will on her over the years but she still has quite a bit of life left in her.

What does not work: The stereo blew a fuse and I just haven't replaced it. I actually use my phone/ipod for music/radio through a blue tooth speaker anyways. The driver side hid headlight burnt out (hi beams work fine). I bought a new ballast box and bulb, just need to plug it all in. The fog/road lights in the front bumper don't light up-maybe bulbs burnt out.

My mileage has been consistent with many other vx's. You can look in my garage to see what I was getting. My best tank was 58.1 last summer but that was a one time only event so I had not mentioned it here as we know one time only tanks don't really count.

I have a clear MN title. I'm listing her for $1600 as I think that's fair for what the car is and the new parts I've added.

Here are some current pics:

I bought the vx two years from a very respected member here. Since his f/s link still exists, and I'm sure he would not mind me re-using it. I will link it here as it has all the specifics he did to this great car.

The shark teeth bumper does not go with the car.

I'm in the midst of switching cell phones so if you want to talk, pm me your number or email address and I can call or email you. I'm happy to answer any questions.
