Default Should I fix my 1996 prelude or 1994 civic?

I have a 1996 prelude. Power windows and locks. It still runs but barely. Has a hole on number two cylinder. And spun rod bearing. Car is in overall decent shape. Interior almost immaculate. My 1994 civic has a blown engine but I already have an extra block, rods, pistons, crank, an head for it. They both have nice 17's on them. Civic is lowered. And both five speed.

Id fix the Civic. Because a hold in the number two cylinder will require a new engine block. The Civic will need bearings ( The block and head should be sent to a machine shop )

What a choice. The one you like the most is the one you should fix. Every person on here will give you a different answer. Some smart and a few smarmy. I like both cars so I would probably flip a coin. If it was the Prelude, I would just buy an engine. The civic already has the parts so you don't have a giant capital outlay. Fix one, sell the other for incidentals. If you live in North Carolina, I will buy the one you don't fix.
