Bought a 1991 Civic Si

Recently in October 2009, I managed to finally buy a really clean 1991 civic si.
I had been haggling with the owner since January 2009...
There were only 2 previous owners, with the 2nd owner only keeping the car for 2 years and putting less than 5,000 kms on the car.
Believe it or not, the original owner was a gentlemen here named Bill Gardiner of Motoring TV television show on TSN here in Canada. I managed to get a hold of him through email right after I bought the car. He told me it was never winter driven, stored in heated garage every winter, and had no body or paint work. He used it for long trips to his cottage in Ontario Canada and Florida as well. Most of the time it sat in his mechanics shop covered.
The second owner who bought it in 2007 only put 5,000 kms in 2 years.
The car is in amazing condition ! It currently has 108,000 kms or 66,000 miles.
Mechanically it's all original including the original 19 year old Honda muffler !

I had sent the shows host some pics of the car in its current state, for an episode of the TV Show Motoring TV here in Canada. Heres the clip via Youtube.

NEW HKS EXHAUST:





INTERIOR:










Well I finished my engine bay detail.. took about 4 days total.

I used WD-40 and a paintbrush and 4 microfiber towels.
Works amazing on 20 year old buildup of dirt and rustproofing. No joke.
Car had been sitting for 10+ years.. Buildup of rustproofing and dust on it takes its toll.



BEFORE








AFTER
