Calling All Five Fans Of “Top Gear America”: Rutledge Wood’s Custom Civic Is On eBay

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Here’s your chance to own his bonkers Civic wagon. With the UK
version of “Top Gear” receiving a complete overhaul, the American variant of the
greatest motoring show on the planet is looking a little bit better. For fans of the American version, Rutledge Wood is the zany, quirky and car-loving host that you
would expect to drive a ridiculous vehicle off set. The host’s custom-built
1983 Honda Civic wagon has just appeared on eBay and is a true representation
of his personality. In other words,
it’s the craziest thing you’ll see today.

Wood collaborated
with Charles Warren, former owner of Mainstream Performance, to turn what was a
pedestrian, daily driver into a true showstopper. The wagon features some extremely
vibrant colors that are sure to grab anyone’s attention. The body wears Nissan’s
“Tank Green” paint, while the engine bay is adorned in a cherry blossom hue. Oh
and the craziness extends into the interior with Celery Green vinyl, which is
accented by tartan plaid cloth.

Underneath the
hood lies a B18b engine from a 1996 Acura Integra that has been tuned to produce
130 hp. To complement the vehicle’s sense of oomph, the Civic wagon sits on Eibach
springs in the front, lowering blocks in the back and features 15-inch Enkei
wheels. There’s a ton of
other features that we could rave about, but you get the idea: This is a
one-of-a-kind ’83 Civic wagon that no one will be able to replicate. Bidding is
currently at $8,500, which is a steal for a vehicle with this much work on it. How
much would you be willing to pay for this one-off Civic wagon owned by Wood
himself?
