Don Swanson Racing School for sale – Click above for high-res image gallery

We've always thought that if we'd managed to marry above our station, the first thing we would have done with our spouse's money would be to buy three or four identical cars and a meandering stretch of pavement. Friday night with the guys would suddenly become Friday night at the track with the guys with the winner taking ultimate bragging rights.

Now that dream is a little closer to reality. The entirety of the Don Swanson racing school has cropped up on eBay Motors, complete with a full semi, four EJ Honda Civic racers and a Dodge Grand Caravan.

If you're playing the "which one doesn't belong game," we'll give you a hint; it's not the Civic race cars or the semi.

All four of the Civics look to be DX models with five-speed manual gearboxes and non-VTEC D15 single-overhead cam lumps under the hood. That means there's likely way more grip on hand than power, which is the perfect recipe for some confidence-building on-track hijinks. Each of the racers come equipped with plenty of safety equipment and more than a few performance bolt-ons, and the auction even includes all the suits, helmets and gloves you'd need to stay reasonably protected. The buy-it now price sits at a somewhat reasonable $79,000 or best offer, so get to clicking.

      In AU dollars that's the price of a landcruiser prado or like a5. The semi would be pretty cool.

      For those complaining about handling or power, it's not as though Hondas are hard to modify. Second, having the same car(s) are a good way to benchmark performance differences between drivers. This would be EXCELLENT, if I had the cash.

      This should bring back really fond memories for anyone who ever had a set of Hot Wheels growing up. If you never had Hot Wheels, I can't imagine how you wound up on this site.

      honda + racing in the same sentence doesn't seem reasonable for me...

        They've had victories with the HSV-010 in SuperGT and many class wins in VLN. The driver who Nissan picked from the GT Academy had racing experience well before even entering into the GT Academy competition, so don't make it sound like he was some amateur. Plus, they were using old cars that were inferior to the new technology in the new cars. The Civic Type Rs in WTCC/BTCC have multiple wins, so saying their crap is just your personal opinion. I just love how you ignore every other fact that I posted because you know I'm right. And who cares what they produce? We're talking about racing. Just because they can't produce an exciting car, doesn't mean they don't know anything about racing. Oh and by the way, how about we talk about Honda in MotoGP? Multiple championships and I believe the 2nd most winningest manufacturer in MotoGP. By the way, they supply engines for INDYCAR. Not just the Indy 500. You know, that actually just shows your intelligence on Honda Motorsports because you think IndyCar only races the Indy 500.

        Uh, you're kidding right? Multiple F1 wins, very successful NSX racers, countless wins and class trophies in various SCCA races.

        You have GOT to be kidding me... 1. Main supplier of engines in IndyCar? 2. Fielding 2 HSV-010 race cars in SuperGT? 3. Fields Civic Type Rs in the WTCC/BTCC? 4. Spoon Racing has been racing Hondas for longer than you've been alive? 5. Fields 2 Honda prototypes in the ALMS LMP2 class? Look up the Motul Civic SiR. Probably one of the most iconic touring cars of all time.

      AOL, does ebay have you in their pocket, too? There's plenty of other "auction" sites out there. Why not find things on some of them and give them the free publicity?

        They only do this with eBay because that is what the title of the articles are. They've been doing it for 3 years now.

      Somebody should buy this and remake "The Fast and the Furious".

      The "Ron Swanson Racing School" would be much cooler.
