                    yeah around here they get stolen no matter what they look like because they're worth like 4 times their complete value as parts. Its to the point now where if you buy a used civic part in new england its like an 80% chance its from a stolen car.

                          So you've got the RX7, Cobalt, and Civic now?

                          And as for Honda, the Detroit area is about as bad as it gets right now, you can't leave one sitting out anywhere even if it is 100% stock. They also sell for wayyyy more than they're worth. An 89 Civic Wagon with 200k miles just sold for $3000 on my local forum. Ridiculous.

                              first thing wire a killswitch to a clever location. Or wire your horn to the "on" position and to a switch, so there's no way they can be sneaky. nice find though! I was lookin and looking and there's nothing cheap and honda in Mn
