You Can Be Race Ready for Less with This ’90 Civic Hatchback for Sale
If you’ve got a truck and trailer, this Honda-tech forum member has one heck of a deal for you on a track car.
It seems like everyone wants to take their car to the race track and rip around for a day or two. However, it can be a costly proposition, especially if you take your daily driver and the unfortunate happens in the process. What if we told you there is a way to get on track for less, with less financial risk? Well, we hope you’re sitting down, because Honda-tech forum member Nickabeans is selling their Civic track car, and it’s a killer deal.
The car in question is a 1990 Honda Civic hatchback, that has been modified for track work. Fortunately, it hasn’t been extensively upgraded, and still seems friendly towards drivers of all experience levels.

That is $750 for a running Civic. Sure, the D15B2 engine is a gutless wonder, but it will, presumably, last forever with minimal maintenance. It also helps that the ED6 is pretty much a tin can. Even in stock form, they don’t weigh too much more than 2,000lbs. That means there is less stress on the engine, tires, brakes, and pretty much any sort of consumable you can imagine.

There is only one hiccup for a novice track day driver that we can see and that is the fact that the car currently isn’t street legal. The registration status is listed as non-operable, so unless someone wants to deal with paying years of back fees, and getting this ED6 through California smog, it’s a track-only ride. However, fret not, because the DIY solution is simple: UHaul. You can rent a trailer for $55/day, and trucks start at $20/day + mileage fees. So, for about $100, give or take, you have a rough and ready tow rig for this humble track toy. Sounds pretty rad to us.
