Hi

Hi my name is Michael. I currently drive a 1992 Ford Festiva 5spd LX (i'm averaging 42.33mpg with it) I have been looking for an ideal hypermiler project for a while, and I have a line on a d15z1 1992-1995 honda civic vx Vtec-e engine with low miles (supposedly). I have a few questions about this for anyone with knowledge about these. First of all; What would you guys value this at, if say it had 100k miles? Secondly; What would be the ideal year/make/model civic to put it in? I really like what Basjoos did with his aerocivic and would be looking to attempt something like it. Is there an ideal compatible body with super low c/d that you would take if you had any car to choose from? Maybe even a list of ideal ones so that the search might be a little easier. Thanks allot guys. I've been lurking here for a while and just recently joined. I really respect the work you guys are doing here on this sight, and love the science behind the aeromodding you guys are doing.
