Nigel Sylvester's 10 Favorite Cars

10. 1993 Honda Civic Hatchback

"After Fast and Furious came out, I got into little super fast tuners. My cousin had a Honda Civic hatchback, and I would go over there and help him fix it all the time. That was right around the point when I quit riding for a year. I was going to get a tuner I was going to just drive around. I quit riding for a year. It was right before I got my license, so I was maybe 14 or 15, and I quit. I was like, 'Whatever, as soon as I get my license, I'm going to get a hatchback, and I'm done.' But right before I did get my license, I got back into riding. I needed to get around, and something just clicked, and that's why I ended up getting the Honda Accord, because I didn't care about the tuners anymore.

But my cousin had that red Civic, and he had that turbo in there. That thing was fast, man. You would hear him comin' down the block like, 'Bap, bap, bap, bap, bap, bap, bap,' like bounce! [Laughs] I used to love driving with him. There was that one day that he finally got the turbo in. 'Vewwwwwww, pfff!' That shit was so ill, dude! I couldn't drive, but just sitting in the passenger's seat, I still got that rush when he hit the gas and I just sunk in his bucket seats. He tried to teach me stick in that car, but it didn't really work out too well. I only had like one lesson, and it stopped after that."
