I didn't look very long, just wanted to show you an example of what is out there for sale.
Here is a 92 Civic, GSR swap, fully built motor, direct port nitrous system, 17" wheels, Ground Control coilovers w/ Tokico adjustable struts, DC sport strut bars, racing seats, VAFC controller, all carbon gauges. He says there is too much to list and the car runs 11.90's in the 1/4 mile. $8,295.
Tons of deals like this or better out there. Civics are perfect project cars. I would go with something like that. www.traderonline.com
Well, the picture won't load for some reason, but it looks like a nice car.
