Mike Panzica’s B18C1 Honda Civic

Mike has owned the car for 19 years. It was brand new off the lot back in 98.
It has been a long road but it was worth it in the end. He works on cars for a living. Mike Says ‘It’s a never ending cycle it will never be done’. Mike Says’ I’m always seeing room for improvement i always want to make it better. You know your own car better than anybody else so you know where all the flaws are. Every little knick or scratch that nobody else will ever see, I just want it to be perfect.

Mikes favorite part of the build is he has done every bit of work to this car himself.  He is a real big do it your own person. He sprayed every flake of paint and turned every nut and bolt Himself. He chose to make his car different and It is one of the most popular cars in this game. He had to make make it the one that stands out the one you remember cause it just blew your mind, he has put so much attention in the details because that’s what makes it for him, CLEAN, he mean’s even the little things that can’t be seen like the motor mounts and rear brackets all have matching pin stripping to the bay. Even his bay is 2 tone if you can get past the motor. Then you might see the custom bent copper brake lines too. Basically every nut and bolt on the car has been touched. It’s amolst easier to tell you what he hasn’t done to the car.

Mike wants it to be one of those cars everybody knows, a neck breaker quality build.  That has people wanting you to build theirs. He is in the process of trying to get my own business up and running. So this is also his way of showing the world what I am capable of doing.Fender ShotFrontInterior
