Unmolested, clean, well taken care of 1998 DX Hatch

Hey all, just joined the forums and thought I'd upload some pictures. Car's got 286,000 kilometers on the clock, but runs like new and shifts like a warm knife through butter. No rust anywhere on the car; it's even still got it's factory undercoating. There is some bubbling on the shock towers, but nothing some fine grit sandpaper couldn't take care of.

Check out the paint in the first couple of pictures; the sky's gleaming off it like it were new. Honestly, aside from a couple water stains in the trunk, I could see this being on a dealer lot back in 1998.

It looks really good. Get yourself a carbon fiber trunk floor and then cover it with carpet or if you don't wanna spend serious cash just cut a think layer of plywood. Just to make the trunk useable but it looks great.

Sweet! Very nice and clean car!
Now it's time to molest, dirty-up, and destroy!
In a fun and sensible manner of course
