1998 Civic DX Coupe
My dad bought it as a commuter for himself and so that I'd have something more reliable to drive when needed. We actually went to see a CX hatchback (manual steering, no radio!) from the dealer's ad, but it was suspiciously absent. We grabbed this coupe for $11,688.
It was pretty funny in '98 to have a new car that had no A/C, hand crank windows, no ABS, not even a cd or tape deck (radio only). All my classmates were confused how I was driving a new car that was equipped like all our parents' 10-yr-old cars.
This became my primary car and until I sold it in 2009. I took it to performance driving schools, autocross, some road rallies and did some light modifications (springs, shocks, intake, exhaust) as well as stupid ricer things as a young kid (EL-gauges, racing steering wheel, random shiny bits, etc.). Photo is circa 2003, when I had it built the way I wanted; about 6 months before all the fun parts were stolen.
This is the only Honda I've personally owned, but there have been other significant ones in my life:
1981 Accord 5-spd
My mom had one like this photo for 16 years. I don't believe it ever had any issues other than UV damage causing the upholstery to split. One time, I left a 110 camera on the rear bumper by accident. She drove on the freeway to swim practice and back and found it there when she got home.
1995 Accord EX
When I first met my wife she was driving her aunt's hand-me-down Accord like this one. This was typically what we rode around in as we lived in SoCal and my Civic had no a/c. The a/c on this one, however, dumped water on my feet every time she turned left.
Before I met my wife, she had her aunt's 1991 Integra coupe
, which I assumed looked something like this. This is the primary motivation for her to encourage me to get the new Integra, rather than a Civic Si, BRZ, etc.
