Ah, the EK9 Civic Type R. The last real nice, clean CTR hatchback. The new one is very busy with lots of angles and sharp edges, but that’s Hondas current design language. Let’s take a look at one of their last great cars though. This late 90s Civic is by Ottomobile, so it’s a sealed resin car. But Otto is usually priced fairly, as long as you get it directly from them. Once they sell out and you’re at the mercy of eBay, prices can get pretty high pretty fast. Fortunately American Excellence was running a labor day sale last week so I was able to score this for a reasonable price.
