Pretty cool. What do you use it for?

darrylrobida 09-20-2012 09:35 AM

I haul full sheets of plywood, windows, tablesaw, cement, helpers.
At five hundred pounds lighter it comes right up to 90 mph and is
still eager for more! The body is real wood with pine shiplap put together
with mahogany pegs. It is a real head turner. In fact, I often come out
to see my civruck surrounded by girls all taking photos of my woody.
Thanks for your most entheuastic reply to my post. You are very
positive and this encourages me. Darryl

Rarely, IMO, are girls in inclined to take a snapshot of a nice woody.

"if you build it, they will come" Epic Wood!! :chuckles:

But seriously, if i had a beater i'd be doing this as well. Anyone ever see the PT cruiser truck?

Your particular car doesn't look too Rain freindly?! any plans to make it rain friendly?
How is handling, any oversteer? 500lbs is ALOT of weight to reduce from the rear

Do you have any photos of it mid build? wondering what parts of the unibody you left.

scivicblu83 09-20-2012 01:13 PM

pictures would be really neat, i would like to see the civic taken apart.

Haha holly crap is it less than a ton? I saw a civic just like yours with a Nissan truck bed and it had a turbo charged b18 in it on Craigslist. I was calling it an el civino
