Yeah. I actually thought about doing that, but I was dropping my wife at work, she works at a hospital, and we would have needed to get off at the next exit and double back. :-(

Huh, wouldn't consider myself a Honda fan but I can think of a few more...








Dat rear wheel steering.


I'll skip Integra and CRX because they're well known enough that I know you've already dismissed them, probably as 'econo-box-trash'. Let's just toss in that because you didn't specify cars only you've dismissed a dominant heritage of sport and dirtbikes, they make a mean 2 stroke.

Had an 84 Civic S that I bought new. $7400 f'n awesome value for the time.
Kept it stock and loaded miles on it all over for 11 years.

On a 2 week vacation down the coast and back it munched itself.
Turns out that the water pump is driven off the cam belt. The pump froze and the interference valves said "HI !!!!" to the pistons.
Luckily I was doing 40 in a 40 zone and had a place to pull over only 3 miles from getting back home.

Got it fixed, but sold it shortly after that. Still like that hatch body style. You could actually see out the rear quarters.

Steering has zero feel. Needs a bar/cage to track (for someone with my toro height anyways), limited space/usefulness. Great trans and engine though.

It's one of the few cars that I've owned that I've never since missed.

That '64 Honda S500 is B&D&SS!
I thought it was a Datsun 2000 roadster at first glance. :-)

Thank you for saying this.

One of the really nice things about the whole BRZ/FRS/GT86 community is that it brought together people from all different automotive enthusiast backgrounds - Subaru, Honda, BMW, Mazda, etc... It annoys the piss outta me when people talk down about another person's car.

What others do with their cars shouldn't decide which cars *YOU* enjoy driving.

Edit: deleted the rest of this post due to edits to what I was quoting.

Including the boatload of trolls who come on here to talk shit about a car they've never driven and when called out on their douchebaggery they engage in skullduggery by saying they have driven the car.

Uh, are you new to the internet?

It's inevitable, it cycles and if you take it too seriously you're just as annoying as the uppity kids who think their post (or any post) has value or weight beyond monkeys at a keyboard.

Stick to the posts that are interesting useful and entertaining to you, let the rest slide. I'm personally proud of myself for only posting one or two comments on stance, staying out of build threads and the cosmetic mods section.
