Actually lawnmower racing is a sport that is taken seriously, im not joking, people drive in from all difrent cities and race riding lawnmowers. and Id get the 96 civic just because its newer. both are failry close to the same thing.

both stock are very un-impressive.































of this tho, many people favor the EG's(92-95's) over the EK's (96-00).































I personally like the 96-00 civic's slightly better.

96-00 I think are the more potential ones. If i had to pick one i would get the 97 EX Manual. That was year of generation if you ask me.

You also should compare car insurance quotes for cars before buying one, for example here - carquotes.sinfree.net

i prefer the 92-95 body styles to be honest. they are also easier to work with, however, if youre leaving it stock, you arent turning one into a drag car. my 95 has a lot of work done to it, including an Si swap out of a 00. and i still wouldnt call it a drag car, its quick, but its not that quick

Darius is right. Hell my lawnmower probabaly has almost as much torque as either of those.































1. Both of those cars are ugly as s***































2. You would lose in a drag to a UPS truck with either of those pieces of s***.































3. Either of those cars would would fall apart after 1 hour of hard driving if you ever got them powerful enough for a 13 sec 1/4 mile

That is the most ignorant statement on this thread.

I have 2 Hondas--one built, and one bone stock--that run 13's in the quarter. I have dyno slips and track slips to prove it.

Know what you are talking about before you open your ignorant mouth.

I run my cars hard, and I don't have to do anything to them but general maintenance. Oil changes, brake changes, fluid flushes, and general tune ups is all either car needs.

To the original poster, you need to figure out what you want to do to the cars, the type of driving you are going to be doing, and how much money you want to spend. You also didn't tell us what motors are in either of the cars.

If you want my opinion, the 92-95 Civic has more potential. It's OBD1, will fit anything under the hood with little to no modifications (except the K-series swaps) and the aftermarket parts scene is astronomically huge.

bahahahaha, dude, you are SO right, that George777 guy thinks he can beat any V8 muscle car on the market.

i would go with a prelude if you wanted something cool looking and they have more than enough room under the hood for any sort of motor swap
