Zombie Apocalypse Honda Civic

Here was have a 2004 Honda Civic EX with some interesting mod choices.  Was it modified for night rallies?  We say no, as the roof rack makes no sense.  So, we must assume this was inspired by the Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine.  Too bad the tire/wheel choice won't make for good off-roading.

Underneath it all is a 220K+ mile Civic in really good shape with claimed regular maintenance.  One big issue: it has an airbag light on and needs an airbag recall completed.  Could it be a Takata unit?  If so, is the goal to get the Zombie into the driver's seat and ram the car into a tree?

True to Honda's "masters of simple option packaging" form, this EX means is fully loaded.  Thankfully, they left a bit of ordering complexity in the mix in that customers could still choose a manual trans!  So, beneath the oddly-chosen mods lies a pretty desirable little coupe.  Sadly, the seller provides no asking price; so we don't know if it's a good deal.

Massive LED light bars, overly-wide wheels with stretched tires and plastic fender flares, a roof rack and an oversized rear wing.  These don't go together, but the end result is oddly appealing.

This shot reveals just how wide those wheels are.  Also, is that a rear LED light bar?

It's not clear whether the Mercedes ride-on toy comes as part of the deal.

You're damn right the exhaust exits through the valance!  Also, this seems to answer the rear LED question.

Yes, those are rear LED bars of some sort...

Interior is basically original and appears to be in great shape.  Note the obligatory "Illest" logo near the shifter.  It's probably also on the seller's flat-bill hat.

Engine is stock save for cold hot air intake, which probably gives it a nice sound.

Was this the inspiration??

What's up craigslist. Just testing the waters to see if I can trade my 2004 honda civic EX, with a 1.7 liter 4 cylinder vtec motor, with a 5 speed manual transmission. Nothing has been swapped engine or transmission wise. It's all original. The cars is around 220,000 miles+ and going. I use this car to make a daily commute to work, that's it. This car is not abused or used for racing, I maintain it on every 3 months. The car has no leaks, no overheating, and no unusual noises. The car comes with power everything, Windows, sunroof, mirrors, and locks. It's got a full functioning A/C and heater, as well as cruise control. The interior is at a 9/10, there's no rips or tears. The car also has a 4 point netami seatbelt harness. Tags are up to date until February of next year. There are no check engine lights, there is however a airbag light on. That's due to an airbag recall for this year and model. You can take it to any honda dealer near you to have them changed out for free with no charge. I just haven't had the time to take it in yet. The car is modified on the outside for the most part, the engine only has an air intake system. It's still passes smog. A new suspension system was recently installed a month ago. The car is sitting on diamond racing wheels with specs of 16×10 with all negative offset, on some stretched tires that are almost still new. So I'm looking for an even trade or if your trade is better than mine, money on top could be possibly negotiated, but I'm mainly looking for an even trade, with the same amount of miles or less. Model years from 2002 thru 2004 would be preferred, manual or automatic. Title status isn't an issue for me. The trade must be in good running condition as mine! Pink slip is in hand, and if you need more photos, shoot me a text. Not in a rush to sell or trade.
