The first gen Civic is a cool little car. It was ahead of it's time when it was introduced.

Honda has always been an innovative company. In the past I've owned 2 Accords they were both great cars.

I see you have an RX3 avatar. Those were really cool cars. As far as Hondas go I'd have to say the Integra, S2000, and NSX are my favorites. The only thing that irritates me about Honda is their slavish devotion to the FF layout. I find FR more enjoyable to drive.

those are some of my fave Hondas as well,the DC2 Integra,the early model S2000 with the 2 liter engine and the NSX,and yeah,the Mazda RX-3 is one of my fave cars,i have a lot of pics of those in my Gallery

at the time in the US they just came here cause of the gas price going higher and was harder to find gas with lead.

I'm not really that much of a Civic fan but I like this one. Someone near me has, I think, an '84. Not too often do you see a civic older than the '90s.
