What made you fall in love with the 88-91 sedans?

It's always fun finding out what makes people gravitate to these beautiful sedans.  So what's your story?

As for me, I was about 12 when I first fell in love and promised myself that I would someday own one.  My friends older brother was a bass head and his crew consisted of 3 guys.  One of them owned a 90/91 white LX.  It was completely slammed on some chrome 17"s with a system that would rattle your brains.

Edit:  I reached out to Dennis recently looking for a picture, no dice but he did clarify that it was on 17" Momo wheels.  Couldn't remember the exact name.

I was 14. And this guy at the cruise had a 88-89 blurple sedan. It had a ZC
slammed On steelies. With nitrous. It was different, fast, and sleeper. All
at the same time. So when I turned 15 I bought my first car, a 89 civic
sedan. But sold it and went thru cars til I found my car. But yea that
blurple sedan was my inspiration.

Mine was 2 years ago, when i saw a 1989 white civic lx. it was and is in terrible condition, and is still sitting in the same spot. i was immediatly drawn to it and i would like to get it as my first car. If you want to hear more about look at my last post.

My tastes always move back and forth but I always loved the clean lines and interior of the EF. Hatches and crxs are too expensive. So I looked at the sedans and the more I did, the more I fell in love. So I just bought one and it's an amazing thing to drive Smile I smile  every time  I start her up.

And to be more specific i'm in love with the front end. The hood lines turn me on.

EF's have been in my family when I was a little kid. My dad had a EF hatchback and my mom had a EF wagovan. This guy down the street had a slammed ef sedan that I liked alot and ive always wanted four doors so the sedan works out perfect.

A friend of mine had a 91 lx back in 1992-3 with wheels and a few things done to it.. I fell in love with the fact it had 4 doors and it was comfortable for long skate trips.  I looked for the same thing, found one but it was out of my price range.. the guy at the dealership said i can get an 89 for a little less.. The rest is history. I still have the sticker that was on the glass when i got the car. Picked it up for close to $4000.00 back in 1994 (My current 1989 lx). Everything worked, ac, radio, ran like a dream.. Always loved the boxy look.. At one point, there were three of us that all had 88-91 civic sedans. It was the perfect skate car. Pack friends and had great gas mileage. I have a picture somewhere of us three.. Lemme see if i can find it. Smile

It was 08 I went to an EF meet with my EG not knowing anything about any car. I saw a white sedan slammed on XXR 513s and immediately fell in love. I sold my EG that night to someone that offered me 2000 for it. Probably not a good idea seeing as i didnt have a car for work for like 2 weeks lol. That didnt stop me. i took the bus for that time until someone had a sedan for sale. It was grey on steelies, so i slammed it on SIs ( there is a picture in the new to site thread) My love for these cars has gotten stronger and stronger since.
