^agreed. civics are a great car. but i feel hypocritical seeing as i wouldnt be caught dead in one.
if you want something fast, for 4,000 you could probably find a decent vr6 with lower mileage. just make sure its not a swap. or look for an e30 or e36 with lowish miles. my friend sold his e30 for 4,500 with 120,000 and NO rust. it was perfect.
these are just cars that come to my mind.
