  • About me
    Hi, I'm Dave, the founder and owner of Civic5.com. I have been into cars my whole life, spending time restoring classic 70's fords then moving into the Honda scene. Have now been a fan of Honda's for years.

    So, bit more about me. I'm an old git, and was with Dawn (aka Civic5 Moderator crazzzydawn in the forum) for 21 years, married to her for 17 of those years. She helped me set up and run the club and site from the start, and it was Dawn that got me into Honda's! Sadly, she passed away after a very brave fight with cancer (Jan 2013) and is very much missed by myself and a lot of the members here. Her spirit in the club lives on in her car, her beloved Civic Aerodeck ES known as "DD" in the forum (Dawns Deck). It's a car that's been tastefully modded, and one I will keep for ever.

    Recently, I met my new partner Gayle (aka Gayle in the forum) and she has been amazing! She's totally turned my life around, and makes me happy. Luckily, she's a petrol head too! She's also become a big part of Civic5, and loves the Honda scene now too! We got married in June 2017.
    Anyways, enough about me! Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, and welcome to Civic5

Good they can fit you in too when they have a lot of projects on the go, deffo must have a good rep for folk to be entrusting them with those cars for resto....That line up of modern classics.....mk2 xr2.....mk2 cavalier....mk1 fiesta....and then all the older ones like Vauxhall victor and pc cresta, Austin six, old mercs, alfa romeo, mk2 Jag, E Type Jag, MG's Mini....I'd be happy as a pig in muck spending a day there just looking!!

    That has to be the mintest shell I've seen mate, really does look like new. Are you doing the rebuild yourself or letting the new garage do the work?

    New steering pump

    I'm almost sure the Integra DC2 one is the same, Just the rack that's geared different I think? Somebody will need to clarify this though.

    What are you looking for mate, is it a 1.4, 1.6 or 1.8? Aerodeck or 5 door hatch? A bit more info would be good such as is mileage important, service history etc. Oh, and how much you looking to spend? I spotted a few on Autotrader tonight, but were all £1200 and over (seem to be holding their price just now) There was one at about £500 I think but not sure where it was? Looked like it had a few wee dents here and there though.
