Still going strong

Almost 20 years ago, the 5th generation Civic was introduced into the Japanese car market. This small sub compact was quite ahead of its time and was offered in many different trims all across the globe.

To this day the EG Civic is still immensely popular amongst Honda enthusiasts and for good reasons. Reliability is second to none and most engine transplants are a bolt-in affair and can even be done using only factory components.

This lightweight chassis was also equipped with independent double wishbone suspension and with the massive aftermarket support available, tuning this low cost Honda into a weekend track ready car is only wrench turns away!

Here is an imported EG6 lapping the Horse Thief Mile configuration at Button Willow Raceway. So timeless!
