I'd say a really old Civic.. Early 80's late 70's model.<br><br> <p>"Don't argue with stupid people. They just bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience"</p><i></i>

Looks like those "hondamatics" of the late 70's early 80's<br>wonder why the had to advertise that they came out in auto, Like WOW. those cars aint classics so obviously they didnt make that much of a splash <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br> <p></p><i></i>

i think the mid-70's 1200's actually have a real following, much like the datsun 510, maybe not quite as legendary 'tho.<br>i like them, but i wouldn't want to deal w/ trying to keep an econo car that old on the road & thrashing it.<br> <p></p><i></i>
