Eduardo Lucena purchased the 1996 Honda Civic hatchback from a friend in 2014. It was a project and needed lots of work, but Lucena always wanted an original midori Civic hatchback due to is rarity. "The midori Civic hatchback is hard to find because they didn't make to many," mentions Lucena. He decided to modify the Civic because he loves Honda and import culture, "I'm a very passionate car enthusiast, and my team NvUs has inspired me to continue building this car."
