$810 HX in Saint George, Utah, and $1,400 HX in Phoenix

A friend asked if it would have been cheaper to purchase another Civic than replace my head gasket. Since I am doing it myself in my copious free time from being underemployed, no.

This is an allegedly mechanically-sound 1997 with 227,000 miles for $810:

Here is a 1996 - 2000 HX of unspecified year with 225,000 miles for $1,400. Please note that I am just seeing this ad, which is already a month old, so either they would probably take less, or it is long gone:

They also specify that it does not have air conditioning.
