Introducing Project EJ Honda Civic
By Chuck Johnson
You're probably wondering what this busted ass Honda Civic is doing on the virtual pages of MotoIQ. I mean, it's far from the flawless presentation of MotoIQ's usual project cars and lacks the engineering luster to be excusable like Coleman's innovative crap cans. Instead, this Civic's clear coat is peeling off and almost every panel has some kind of battle wound on it… but every gear head has a story about the car that was their first love.
For our resident editor, Annie Sam, this busted ass civic was her first love. With the odometer now reading just over 260K, Annie's 1997 Honda Civic has seen it all from her high school days of riding on cut spring and scamming on wannabe gangster boys to her first hot laps at Willow Springs.
While Annie was learning how to road race, she faced a very steep learning curve. This was a result of one of her “lessons” learned.
