Frost Civic | Chris Gabbard | Indiana

Social media has played a big part of connecting people in our community. Becoming friends with people over the internet and viewing their car builds online has become an entertainment in itself. It’s also shows who is dedicated to the community by traveling to distances to show support for events they enjoy. Chris Gabbard comes to mind, when I think of someone who I’ve been watching over social media building his car over the years.

DSC_0756When Chris was looking for something to build, what he wanted was something he could enjoy driving. The EG chassis was the platform he found to be his favorite. So the build began in July of 2007. He traded a 91 Acura Integra with a B16 for what he really wished to build.  The car was daily driven for 2 years until he really started to tackle the build full force. The infamous quarter panel rust started to surface soon after. It only provided another reason to go full force and clean up the car itself with a frest coat of paint.

DSC_0779This build has been going on for 8 years and he is still progressing to achieve what in his eyes is perfection. Which is something many of the young generation need to learn. Unless you are surrounded with tons of cash laying around, you can’t build that dream car over night. It takes time and dedication.

DSC_0758Building a car now can also lead one to building new friendships along the way. Chris Gabbard has done just that while building his 1993 Honda Civic Dx.  Going on road trips to various events and catching the eye of other enthusiasts with his own rolling piece of art created new friendship in various different states.
