well i have brought a civic vt-i . Well this has turned in a project now as it needs a fair bit of welding due to being patched up over the years and not having the rod cut out and replaced with good metel . but im going to do it right and make a nice car out of it once more .

The pictures and a video from the day i brought the car :
