Andrew Ramsay and I went out for what turned out to be my first ever night shoot! I had to borrow my brothers Canon T2I which surpassed my previous Nikon’s ability to shoot at night by a quite noticeable margin, for a camera I have never really touched before, I thought the images came out great!
The car is a 1992 Honda Civic with a Integra GSR powerplant and SiR LSD tranny. This freshly rebuilt engine includes ARP headstuds, a DC Sports header, full Magnaflow exhaust, Skunk2 intake manifold and throttle body along with a cold air intake.
Andy’s car is sitting on 14″ Riken wheels, which in the past have found themselves on many other Honda’s around town, including my own. I have to say these wheels were made for Honda’s, they never cease to look good, no matter the generation of Civic.
Suspension wise the car is sitting on Tenzo-R front adjustable coilover sleeves and lowering springs hugging the Civic’s stock shocks in the rear. The rear suspension was also put under the knife and now sports Civic SI disk brakes instead of the stock drums. Skunk2 adjustable front upper control arms along with front and rear shock tower braces are also bolted on for that little suspension tweak.
On the exterior this civic wears black housing headlights, smoked amber corner lights, JDM sidemarkers, a polyurethane Spoon replica front lip, a Spoon replica rear hatch wing, and Spoon replica mirrors. The car is Andy’s daily driver and is at the moderate height where function and form are in perfect harmony, something that is needed on Regina streets – where any given pot hole could tear off exterior pieces, wreck suspension or even bend wheels. Not everyone can move like turtles, there has to be a few rabbits out there!
