Few pictures... (Its not a pretty civic....yet, she has been smashed a few times but nothing too bad, I will be replacing the fenders soon)

(I just recently painted the front bumper, 13.00 worth of spray paint and clear coat spray paint)



civic+F150



civic vacuum gauge (not mounted yet)


The move from Texas to Pennsylvania, averaged 16.2 MPG over 1600 miles, 1995 F150 XLT crew cab 4x4 5.8L V8 E40D (big transmission) 3.55 front/rear posi diffs. Only currently is electric fan. Best mpg 17.2 (while pulling the civic on tow dolly and carrying 1200lbs+ of stuff in the bed), speedometer is GPS verified as well.





Picture of my 1997 Lincoln towncar signature. Currently averages 17.0 mpg over the last 3 tanks of fuel, avg speed 23mph. (Has a built in computer like a scan gauge 2). I can average 24-25mpg on the highway with the a/c on and level terrain.

4x4 comes in handy on days like these...

They don't plow often enough and my street is a sharp turn with a incline. I tried bridgestone blizzards and studded tires and it has a hard time. I barely made it up some of the unplowed hills with only 3 inches. I only have to use the truck till the plows make it all around and no more snow forcasted ( I am forced to use it about 12 to 20 days which I don't mind)
