Frank & Nick Vitulli: 1989 Honda Civic Si

Frank and Nick Vitulli purchased a 1989 Honda Civic Si as a daily driver, and didn't intend to go crazy with the modifications. Being automotive enthusiasts, however, we know that doesn't last long. They entered the car in a show and won the Best Honda award, and from there everything changed. With the help of Frank's brother-in-law, the father-and-son built the Civic Si into a full show car.
