Alright Haters.

The random-est of updates.

Been a pretty lame and easy car. Figured this can be a long-term "blog" or record list.

Was doing brakes the other day, my goodness, tiny little things.

1.5L is holding up, even though I floor it everywhere I go.

Currently: 265,418k. 37 MPG.

Alright Haters.

Welp. Storm hurt this little guy. And my MJ. Good thing I drive cheap crappy cars!


Civic went back to the original owner for some maintenance. His best friend has a lift in his garage and is a master tech at Honda. Livin the good life.










Soooo. $450 for tie rods and oil change.

I rode around with Julian and grant for a little while and told them that I was just waiting for the day for the motor to blow. They said it probably never will, and if it does, you can pick up another one for $100 with low-ish miles.

Slowest. Most boring car ever. But gosh dang is it practical.


Best part of this being in the shop, I've had an excuse to drive the MJ. MMMMMmmmm.

Alright Haters.

In honor of Fast And Furious 7 coming out...













That's my buddy. He had to drill out the dumb little screws that hold the rotors.



I really only got these cause I needed new calipers, ironically enough, this was the best option for the money.

Re: Alright Haters.

Just rolled 281k today.

Has a few little weird things. Gets a miss fire every once in a while and will take a little longer to start on hot days, but I wouldn't second guess it to drive to California today if I wanted to.

Took a little 500 mile road trip 2 weeks ago to see the trees in the mountains. Had to floor it the whole time going up hills. Still got 37 MPG.

Hate that I love this stupid civic.

Re: Alright Haters.

Car wasn't starting and had some issues with a rough idle.

Replaced the Fuel Pump today.

$60. Took about an hour to do.

Feels a lot more responsive.
