Description: I bought this from my sister-in-law for $250. She had 41,000 miles fewer than my Civic and seems to drive well. I call Chorizo the car that saves me money. The Accord had better be at least as reliable, I hardly plan on driving her! The Accord looks to be in much better shape and the physical defects seem easier to fix. With the Civic, I could fix scratches and paint, but it seems like I have better uses for my time and money. With the Accord, less time, less money... and I have a piece of art?
A piece of art that loses money (faster) if I drive her!
I replaced the timing belt myself and many related components like hoses and seals. I replaced the windshield (after being ordered to by the Highway Patrol) 10/2017 and again 03/2019. I replaced the front brakes and rotors 03/2018
$86 catalytic converter to replace the $110 one (same part number) my brother-in-law installed a few years ago.
$20.66 new PCV valve
$12.11 Driver Cowl Top Lid (was missing, allowed leaves into ventilation) 03/2018
$13.31 Alternator bolt. The original managed to break and the belt came loose. 11/13/2018
Almost $200 for a front bumper cover, headlight, wiring, fender, and resonator. The tread came off my tire and damaged all of these components, and also the door. I bought two new tires around then, too.
Build Thread: With my continued gas savings I bought this! (1999 Accord LX)
Current Mods: Tires at 40 PSI. Driving my Civic whenever possible.

Planned Mods: Just restoring her. My sister will probably drive the car more than I do.
