    After running into a number of issues, Miguel Paz reached the finish line for his EM1 and couldn't be happier with the result.

    The '99 Si is a special year in the long running Civic family. A strong, almost cult-like following, it's the Electron Blue Pearl version that is synonymous with the 1.6L coupe that boasts a high revving, 160 horsepower powerplant that most would never consider swapping out for something else. Then again, Miguel Paz Alameda of Jacksonville, Florida, isn't just anybody, and his EM1, nicknamed "Penny," isn't just any old car. If you're anything like me, you probably assume that the nickname is due to the car's copper-like color, but in fact, it's because, as Miguel tells us, it left him with but a penny in his pocket.
