    One Of The First Supercharged Civics In Quebec From 25 Years Ago Is Still Intact



    One Of The First Supercharged Civics In Quebec From 25 Years Ago Is Still Intact


    https://www.montrealracing.com/wp/wp...-still-intact/


    25 years ago the sport compact car scene in Quebec was still in its infancy. New designs for the Honda Civic (hatchback in 1992 followed by the coupe in 1993) as well as the MK3 Volkswagen Golf (1993 in North America) had served to ignite enthusiasts around the age-old VW-Honda rivalry.


    There was no internet so pretty much everything you learned came from magazines. Sport Compact Car magazine which started in 1988 was a very good source, as was Super Street (but that only started in 1996).


    Seven years before the original Fast & Furious movie came out a guy named Vince bought a 1994 Honda Civic Si and decided to modify it. Most Civics in that era were lightly modified with headlight covers, fog lights and 15-inch wheels. Vince decided to take it a bit further and got a full Xenon-style body kit with integrated PIAA fog lights, yellow 16-inch wheels and a massive wing. To finish it off he painted a yellow racing stripe down the middle to match the yellow wheels.


    What separated this car was what was under the hood: a Jackson Racing Supercharger. The engine was still the standard 125 horsepower 1.6-litre SOHC Si unit but with the supercharger it made nearly 200 horsepower. At the time is was an insane amount. Other modifications included a DC Sports header, MSD ignition, Razo pedals, MOMO steering wheel, Auto Meter gauges and yellow accents.


    I remember seeing this car at the local meet at Lafleur in 1996 and was just impressed by it. I was a 16-year old kid who didn’t even have a license yet but I dreamed of one day owning a car like this. Vince’s car made the cover of Super Street magazine in 1998, cementing its place in history.


    Eventually Vince sold it and bought a 1996 Civic Hatchback to modify. You can see it in the photos below. The 1994 Civic (nicknamed Bumble Bee) changed owners only two more times over the next 15 years until a guy named Marc saw it and bought it in 2015. Marc knew Vince back in the late 1990s and had to have this piece of history.


    Fast forward until a few weeks ago when I was driving and noticed Bumble Bee parked in a residential area. I was simply astonished that the car was still intact because I thought it had been parted out long ago. I was so shocked that I left a note on the car to call me to I could come and take photos of it.


    I chatted with Marc a for a while about the car and how the scene has changed since the late 1990s. He loves his Civic but is likely going to be selling it soon. Hopefully someone else who knew of this car back then will buy it and restore it.
    The car may seem like any old Civic with outdated styling to most people but to the older generation of Montreal car enthusiasts it’s a time machine. Hopefully it can be saved.

    With some TLC , new wheels and less yellow it would look good. That body kit was always on the better ones for the coupes.

    You need to have your fuel pump/ fuel module / pressure regulator bench tested? Contact me
    Any question about in tank fuel system (low fuel warning light, pressure regulator, fuel level sensor, fuel tank pressure sensor...), I can possibly help.

    Je te souhaite de devoir payer à la place de recevoir aux impôts, que ton port de charge te lâche sur ton téléphone, pogne un flat dans la slush, accroche chacun de tes orteils sur tous les coins de table possible, échappe ton téléphone face première lorsque tu sera rendu au dernier et surtout une bonne gastro violente et de glisser dans le corridor lorsque tu essaye pour ta vie de te rendre aux toilettes.

    Looks to be about in the same condition as a 25 week old Fiat.

    Si la mecanique roule bien, ca serait pas trop difficile de rendre ca acceptable visuellement. N importe quel set de roues ordinaire noir ferait l affaire, des bons pneus meaty, tu enleves l'exces de body, aileron, peinture ca noir mat ou wrap ordinaire au pire, si la voiture avance un peu, c est facile s'amuser avec ca.

    Cool write up Danny.

    I’ll always remember going to the movies to see the first f&f movie, those 3 black eg’s used to high jack the vans, that style with big terminator wings was the shit back then.

    Good memories.


    I’ll sure cars moded from that era will be cool again in a few decades, just like tin glasses and grandma jeans are cool today lol

    Jesus Christ. Want some fries with that salt?

    The mere fact that it hasn't been stolen and chopped for parts is impressive enough. Like Greg said, it wouldn't take much to bring it back to a very respectable condition.
    Y'all know what I do.

    Merci Danny pour ce time capsule. Tu devrais en poster plus souvent si tu peux

    Sa rappel de bons souvenirs de cet époque tellement différente a aujourd’hui pour le monde de l’automobile. 👍
