I know it's more of a pain to post attachments using vBulletin, but I for one am going to be sad N years from now when imgur goes out of business/crashes/is held ransom by Russian hackers/changes their offsite linking policy and all the pics disappear from this thread.

Woohoo! Thanks.

Let me know when you decide on a thread title. PM me if I don't respond to a post here - I don't see 'em all.

You can change it as long as you can edit the first post. I've changed the title of my civic's thread before.

Back to the Aero Civic
Back to the future is the first thing that came to mind looking at the photos of it.

Either that or something to do with the Jetsons.

Ecky, I am glad you are willing to take this on and the Aerocivic didn't just go the the crusher. When you get it sorted and are able to take highway trips I hope you will continue to post some mpg numbers "with no hypermiling" as that would highlight the aerodynamics of the car over driver skill using EOC and other techniques.

"Technology has really changed in the last 10 years, so maybe 150 or even 200 mpg is possible now." ah yes the new 200% gasoline, 200% more energy per litre. If anything, worse mpg is expected now due to the higher ethanol content they put in fuel.

Just shows, you don't need to be knowledgeable to be a magazine writer. I will be following this thread ecky.

If in the process of restoration you can add pictures of a how it was done then that would be great.
