Is there a budget constraint? Instead of a 20 year old Civic, I'd rather buy a 10 year old OHC. Same fundamentals, but much newer & ready part support in India.

budget constraint - yes. cannot spend more on cars. but can spend a little on maintenance and get it to decent running. third car in our house. so cannot spend more on cars.

first check the car & post the details man.

only after that, the gurus will give you true guidance.

before that, IMO also, 20 yr old civic is not worth.
