Here are some pics from when I first got her home. Bought from the original owner who lived around the corner from me. After seeing it sit for about a year or so I finally got the courage to knock on the door and ask about the car. He had loved it but the timing belt broke and after a local Honda specialist said the engine was toast he retired it to his yard, and there it waited for the right buyer to come along. Guess that was me!

Specs are 1989 RS 195K, manual 5 speed, all stock except for the stereo. vintage Aiwa cassette deck, sony 4 channel amplifier, and alpine speakers :shock:

Fired right up with a new belt! I couldn't believe how lucky I got with this car. Next up is doing the cam and crank seals, tensioner and springs, water pump, etc etc. Glad to have a G1teg again!!! :D

Thats awesome. Welcome to the forums. Amazing enough I hardly see the RS model...or an 89.

Whoo! Yeah I am super excited to have this car guys, it was on my dream list for a long time (as weird as that sounds) She is running good now, and I am in the process of buying out all the remaining Rockauto stock in first gen teg parts :lol:
