Video: Brothers surprise their dad by restoring his 4th gen Civic Si

This is the kind of stuff that warms my heart. These 2 brothers, the Cortez’s, run a small youtube channel where they documented an 8 month restoration of their dads 1987 Honda Civic Si. These may not be very popular now, but for a long time, even past the 90s, they were the range and you could find them at all the “tuner” events. It’s pretty cool to see how well they’ve done to restore this thing to a great condition. Apparently, Papa Cortez used to participate in some autocross action, and this thing looks setup to dive right into it again!
