more to come this weekend.
so heres an update but first your wondering how can i afford this???
well when i was 13 i was a typical xbox fanatic and played 12 hours a day HOLY S**T! So my dad got tired of the bs so he smashed my xbox. I hated him for a day then i realized how stupid i was and i fixed that xbox and sold it . From there on over a period of a year i got into computers and made alot of small amount over a time and i got around 1500 bucks. So where i work at, a little arab computer store, one of my bosses friends wants to buy an 2001 civic ex auto, blue in color for $400 . so i jumped on it and ask for the girls number , next day i went to see that civic on a school day , but my dad didnt mind taking me. The car was a 2001 honda civic ex ,2dr auto,141k and the girl drove it with the oil light on for 3 weeks and threw a rod so i buy that car. my cousin swaps the engine and i loved it and washed it every 4 days , even if i only drove around the block at night.I bought rims and exhaust and intake Here she was Name:  47735_1470162406269_1599897289_31105115_3058159_n.jpg

after a year i sold it to a friend and i bought a 99 civic ex salvage title.i slapped a body kit on it and ruined it. I ended up selling it to a person for 4500 and paid 4500 in parts. Over time i earned a couple grand plus the 4.5
and i bought a 2003 vw jetta 2.0 for 7200 with 45k and my dad drove a 2001 civic ex 4dr auto. so i got bored really fast with the car and my dad loves vw and especially this one , so we traded and i sold his civic and bought this one now for 2500 and i got 4000 to use .
So 1500 left for mods .

Now for the update: I woke up at 8 and started to take apart the car and worked up to 8 pm and i pulled the engine , but i did notice that the a/c compressor was totally jammed and the guy i bought it from guessed it was the timing belt , but i think the a/c was the issue, ill find out when i rip apart the old engine.
Ripped the harness off and now i a writing this .
My camera died and i only got a few pics . The bottom engine covers were gone and there was salt all over the engine bay so its rusty inside but outside minor scratches and i rust spot on the bottom of the door.
