I have a number of BFG and Hoosier R comps for sale.  These are all used but still good for track days and such.

I believe I have 7 BFG's and 9 Hoosiers; I will have to check to be sure. 

$125 a set, $40 per tire.  The more you by, the more flexible I am on price.

So  Rich, you're saying since you replaced the AC compressor (with an incorrect one), it no longer needs anything to be daily driven (although without functional AC)? This may be the exact droid I'm  looking for, for my soon to be 16 year old son. Never owned a Honda before, would you hazard a guess that it should last a year or two with minimal repairs?
Correct. It is pretty close to ready for daily driver, no A/C - truly a beater with a heater.  A few notes:
  • Changed the oil tonight (doubled the value!).
  • Checked the front pads and rear shoes - they are about 50%.
  • Found a broken lug on the LR wheel that I fixed.
  • Tires look pretty new - I think she bought them a year ago.  
  • New radiator about 3 months ago.  Old one had developed a leak as there was a light hit in front somewhere along the way, and the lower core support was bent, bending the radiator eventually causing it to leak.
  • Timing belt was done at 100,000, about 4 or 5 years ago, but I have no documentation.  If I were to keep it, I would replace along with the water pump and tensioner.
  • Bushings in the shifter and / or shift linkage are shot. Gearshift is only slightly more precise than a broomstick in bucket of mud.  But, it is functional.
  • Car is incredibly dirty, especially interior. Should clean up OK.

I drove it a few miles this evening (no plates) just to make sure it worked OK.  I am still going over it, and need to check the lights to make sure they all work, etc.  

I found the original ad on RRAX.  Car was from a  friend of John Vitamvas. http://www.roadraceautox.com/showthread.php?50127-FS-2001-Civic-EX-4-door-5-speed-MD-DC-VA-PA-area-2900&highlight=2001+Civic

Now, will it last a year or two without repair?  I don't see why it wouldn't, but it's a 17 year old car that led a rough life for a couple years with my daughter.

It's a honda from the early 2000s...it'll run forever (boringly) until you forget to put oil in it or it rusts to the ground.

On a more serious note, IIRC early 2000s Civic is one of the bigger takata risks, might want to make sure that gets taken care of if it hasn't been already.

Somehow I ended up with two of these!

Good for all Craftsman 19.2v batteries, NiCad or Lithium.

Damn it, Jerry. I worked hard on the captions.
