The OG VX is For Sale!
 
Text or call me at (704) 408-7395; Daniel

We’ll, the time has come for me to part ways with the OG VX. I wasn’t planning to sell it, but life has taken a turn of late, in we are in need of funds for other things. Honestly, out of all of my project cars, this is the hardest one to let go. I think the new owner will find this to be a true “driver’s car”. I guarantee you’ll fall in love within 5 minutes of driving it.

Rather than eeking through a mod list, please just read my build thread from top to bottom. I know that it is long, but to be blunt, I don’t want to sell the car to someone who hasn’t read it. I figure if a person doesn’t care enough to read about how this project evolved to this state, than they likely will not take proper care of the vehicle after buying it.

My build thread on EcoModder can be found by clicking here.

Also, don’t be surprised if I call you about a year from now and make an offer to buy it back from you. Seriously, I probably will! :D

Asking price: $4,500.00.

1992 Civic VX; drivetrain is completely stock. Only mods are aero and lowering springs.

186,000 miles or so on the odometer.

Good Stuff: Car is mega smooth on the road (drive with a finger at cruise); 65 average city/hwy MPG with NO EOC and car-on at idle. I don't do all that crazy mess, and car is still breaking 65 easy this summer. This VX is mechanically strong, no issues. Great tires, though they are due for a rotation.

Bad Stuff: Needs a new radio. The car will need new front brake pads in about 5K miles or so. Not an urgent need, however. I just noticed them getting thinner when I was working on my custom fenders. The car could also use an alignment, as I never did this after putting on the Eibach lowering springs. As a result, It has a very slight pull to the right.

Here's three preview pics of a shoot i did earlier today:

Thanks for looking.

Such a shame to see a car built with so much love to up for sale. Good luck with the sale, if I had the money I'd be on my way down to NC tomorrow. This might be a good grab for babydiesel or dirtydave IF they are willing to abandon their projects or add to their fleets.

Most important is this car is probably as rust free as you could possibly expect (I'm assuming).

Thanks guys, and yes, the car is completely rust free, to my knowledge. I've had it nearly completely disassembled, and saw no rust anywhere (floorboard, etc...) nor in the quarters. This is a southern-only car, I believe.

Bummer ! Hope it stays in the EM family.

What's going to replace it?

Oh how would you know I would want the OG VX? :D

I got really sad when I got the thread notification this morning that it was for sale. It has been one of my favorite builds of any car site ever, and a true masterpiece. I could never match the level of work you have done on this project Daniel!

That being said, I would love to add it to my fleet. I'll have to see how my finances are, since I am getting married in just over a year. But don't keep it because I have interest. If someone else wants it, sell it to them buddy!

Aw Shucks, thanks Baby Diesel! You've been so supportive of my build throughout, and would love to have you carry it forward.

Man, I never thought I would sell it. But...wife is full term with our third, and I have a house to close on in 4 weeks. Hey, priorities wins, and you can't take a UHaull to heaven, ha!

Well, a third child, and a brand new custom home. I"m blessed. Every time I get down about selling the VX, I think of these two things. Trumps owning the VX 77x7.
