I came across this 635csi in the Ontario classifieds:
It's a bit pricey at 8999$, but if you consider that my plan was to buy a car for 5000$ and then upgrade it, it's not so bad, given that it has the following:
Bilstein B8 Sport Shocks from Germany
15mm rear spacers from Stance Factory
New Stebro Performance exhaust system ($1,100)
Used BavAuto headers
MotorWork Front and Rear Sway Bars
These are all items I would have eventually liked to add. If this were a straight trade for the Civic, I would probably take it. I don't think the Civic is worth nearly enough though...
I cam across this car on another motoring website. The 5-series can look pretty cool when it's properly modified.
As I was walking around the neighbourhood with J. and my sister, we came across a garage that fixes almost exclusively new Mini's. Jules is fascinated with Mini's. It's a car he easily identifies on the street (along with 911's and Fiat 500's). There were about 15 of them there. The garage owner, a friendly guy named Adam, asked Jules if he wanted to sit in one. He loved the experience, as can be seen here:
I'm not trying to make the boy into a gear-head, but I'm not not-trying either.
Anyway, Pat says we will pick up the Civic engine next week. I hope we do! It feels like the track driving season is slipping away... this is maybe why I am thinking of classic cars so much: you can just take them out any time, right?
Cool cars spotted:
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Audi R8 V10
|Cool car, awesome colour|
|300 CE-24... future classic?|
|Ultra clean, but I don't love these wheels for this car|
