1979 Honda Civic Drag Racing
Here's me racing Mike the Gremlin at Avon park today. I'm in the nearside
lane. Its funny throwing a 33 year old shopping trolley down the 1/4 mile
Trio of Honda 600's progress
After aquiring three Honda 600's lately, the signs of progress are starting
to slowly show. Most all the cars had flat and or rotted tires. I don't
like having cars with flat tires. I blasted all the rusty Honda 600 "coupe"
steel wheels gathered from mismatched sets on all three cars, and made one
set of good of "coupe" wheels. I straightened, primed, painted, and filled
the rust holes, and mounted up some new sticky radial tires and installed
them on the red car just to roll it around.
The wheels turned out so nice! I just love them.!
When I first got the blue Honda 600 'coupe', the engine was siezed, the
brakes were bad, in fact, rear brakes were missing completely .
I poured ATF in the engine cylinders in hopes the oil would seep in and
free the pistons. It worked!. After some time, a week or so, it loosened
up. Once I got it started, it smoked like crazy for a long time. I wasn't
sure the smoke would clear up. It now runs better all the time. The more I
drive it the better it runs. It's now driving! I can hardly believe it.
Come along for a ride.

(check out the other parts too)
...taken from a field, trees cut down for it to be released, and brought
home to be demoused and flipped, this poor little civic got a second chance
at life this month, after a 14+ yr nap, starting with the de-treeing and
ending with a quick resto, this will encourage the new owner to keep on
truckin! on the engine rebuild and interior rehab; this car sold in 1 day
to the first guy in about 1 minute! I wish I had a stack!
PART 1 of 3? ..the drag home, the clean up, the initial resto begins!
PART 2 ----- ....rockers, primer, etc! coming real soon! 1/2 done already!
This car is clean, solid, straight, complete, rare, mildly sporty, and
missing the engine/tranny.
Sidetracking from the norm, an easy resto 'cause it's so small! Stay tuned,
there's no time to waste! If it was mine I'd stuff a newer mill in 'er and
beat the shit outta it, but I have other projects waiting patiently! And
this one's all about the $$$! Such an in-demand goofy little car! So easy
to work on! Damn!
Next up, a 66 Ford 1/2t, maybe a 61 Impala couch? Probably a 70 Toyota
Hilux! Who knows!
sorry I had to modify the music to satisfy this place, so it was once a bit
better sounding! :(
THANKS AGAIN FOR THE THUMBS UP!, They always make the day brighter!
Build motivation too!
