You see, my father used to have one of these. It was red, although with steelies. These rims is not what the car comes with to be honest, it's a very rare Mugen NR-10 one piece rim made out of forged alumunium. For more lightness and better time at trackday bro!

But the thing is, sometimes there's some people that could maintain a car so well that in the end of the day it looks better than when it comes out from the assembly line. And this car is one of them. Look at those mugen spoiler and dual exhaust for instance, it made the rear looks a bit like a Lancia Delta with bodykits.

Here's the problem with this car, the inside looks so good that it's like Honda decide to produce this car again. Or this car just traveled from 1987 to 2014 with some hidden flux capacitor somewhere. I don't even dare to drive it as a daily driver.

My only complaint, and it's only slight complaint, is the engine. It's not very clean like any other parts of the car, but i guess that's just shows that this Civic is still a Civic. It's not a perfect car. Nobody's prefect, you know.

Now I wonder if i could see a modern Civic this clean in the next 30 years. Just wondering if there's anyone out there to save the Civic. And Honda, can I have a Civic Hatchback again, please?
