1995 Honda Civic - Foe Tha Love Of $

Nothing gets attention like Tiffany blue and hundred dollar bills

Photographer: Matthew Jones

So maybe we're generalizing, but have you ever had a girlfriend who didn't take notice of either a Tiffany shopping bag or a stack of hundred dollar bills? Think of one yet? Probably not, which is where Ronysn Barrett came up with the inspiration to build his show-stopping Honda Civic hatchback. It's not built for the track or with all the dopest JDM parts. It was built to get a girl's attention--and it works!

Now 19 years-old and a full-time mechanic, we caught up with Ronsyn after seeing his EG blow-up on the Hawaii show circuit. The '95 hatch started bone-stock but quickly transformed into show ready form with a built B16A swap, T3/T4 turbo setup, coilovers and SSR MK1 wheels. The motor was good enough for 250+whp on race fuel. From there, it was time for Ronsyn to get crazy. His dad helped paint the body Tiffany blue with the exception of an added gold tint. Next came the engine bay...Ronsyn came up with the idea by simply joking around with his friends. No one took his money-filled engine bay seriously so a couple weeks later; he shocked his friends, and the whole community. Of course, we were curious if he actually used real money and thankfully he didn't. "Nah, it's not real. I would have rather given all that money to charity!" he told us. The hunnids were printed out from photo paper and then placed in the bay before eight coats of clear were applied to give the bay its nice finish.

Not everybody likes Ronsyn's EG and we'll even admit, some of the staffers here are a little weary of its theme. But it's something new, which we definitely have to give the teenager props for, and we can't think of a girl we know who wouldn't look twice at something that's Tiffany blue and filled with money.
