Readers Ride : Kris Champion’s 1995 Honda Civic

Honda Civics are so popular in the modding community that often it’s hard to stand out. We have all seen Civics with turbos, body kits, altezzas and even air bags. Sometimes it doesn’t take throwing piles of money at a car to stand out. In Kris Champions case he’s taken a little creativity and created something pretty special.

Honda Civic EX Readers Ride

This 1995 Honda Civic EX was saved from the crusher and started its new life as a bare shell. From front to back Kris used recycled auto parts to rebuild his car back to life. What makes his car really stand out in a crowd of imports is the use of camo tape on the body. Kris used digital camo duct tape to wrap the entire car and give it a unique look.

I’ve seen things wrapped like helmets, quads, or guns but never a full car. Kris works at a local body shop and admits that this car gets more complements then a lot of the one off builds they have done.  Its uniqueness attracts attention everywhere he goes. This is car modding with creativity the way it should be.
