it all started about 5 years ago when i bought this civic compleetly stock with a 1300cc carb engine.
i saw some pics from the Motul Mugen Civic on the net.
and so the project begins and is still running.
i found a lot of info and the original mods thanx 2 rpr and new sealand. thanx!
The specs from my Replica Motul Mugen Civic Si Race Car.
-Civic AG 3rd Gen 1.6SI -1987-
-Replica Mugen Motul Civic Si Race Car.
-Modified front shocks and torsionbar-suspension.
Last March i had a little spin with the Civic on the track.
For a week my necks really hurts..
The Civic is almost ready now and doesn't have a lot of damage.
A found some parts and they only need a colorjob.
In September the Civic is back on track!
Maby earlyer in France :D
In 2010 we've got married and there has to be a diffrent car, ofcourse a Honda.
So we take the plane to England and bought a Honda Beat.
After a trip of almost 1000km back to Holland the Beat got a respray. :D
And now Bobby is living with us in our garage.

Very good, now it's time to build the same engine as the original car lol

I've always kicked around the idea that one day I'd pick up an old 3rd gen Civic and try to recreate the same race car. Your car is pretty darn accurate. Ever think about swapping the motor for a D16A1/8/9 DOHC ZC etc to finish off the replica? I know it's just your daily but that would complete it nicely.
Wow, great job on the replica. I think you should really consider getting a set of Mugen mr-5 wheels, the wheels on the race car seem to be a single lug version of the mr-5. This car is worth going as far as you possibly can to make it like the actual racecar, dohc ZC motor, black interior pieces, and some nice Mugen accesories(specific to the era of this car if possible) would definitely be awesome. I wish you luck and hope you take good care of this car for a long time, I would be led to believe that it's value would increase throughout the years. If I would be wealthy, collecting Hondas like this would be my hobby.
