This is a fun car! I have owned it for a couple of years, making improvements all along. When I got it a fresh paint job had just been done by the local community college with a black and red metal flake. I added the pin stripes and vinyl lady bugs. All that can be removed. The lady bugs are because wife did not want large Asian dragon that I chose! lol! The wheels have hand painted trim. Good tires. New brake pads and drilled and slotted rotors all the way around. I replaced seats with 1989 seats, did not realize they would not just drop in so I had to fabricate mountings, they do not slide back and forth but the originals were shot. I do still have them I think, at least one but I cut some mounting parts of if I remember correctly. The windows have a legal tinting. There is an alpine stereo and new speakers. New floor mats. When I got it there was a new clutch, timing belt, and the flywheel had been lightened. I have replaced the radiator, idle air control valve, injectors, head, water pump, new exhaust with stainless headers, muffler, all the way back. Has a good rumble that is not that cat back pooting sound. Most of the engine still has emissions stuff, I have also made a sort of cold air intake, just a new filter and intake arrangement really. Powder coating and painting of engine parts. Spare clutch cable. It needs a few things like the thermovacuum switch on the thermostat housing. The drivers door is a pain, if you don't unlock it before you try to open it from the inside it will stick and you will have to open the window and open from the outside- can't figure that one out. I believe some of the smog stuff still needs replacing.Sometimes it smokes until it is warm, not sure about that either with new valve seals on the head? The compression is above 175# on all cylinders. I have not exceeded 4000 rpm. A/C works but could probably use a leak check and the fan is weak as they all are. I have added some fog lights and red ground effect lighting. New headlights. I may have forgotten some things as I have done so much but I like it and trust it at over 30 mpg! It is a classic head turner! I can take more pictures if you want, I already had these on my computer. All in all it is a fun sporty classical car! I am only selling because I have too many and am shifting priorities to a Toyota Supra. I am listing locally so reserve the right to sell locally. This is an ad so make an offer. Thanks.

Honda lifted the covers off its refreshed Civic Coupe at SEMA earlier this month, showing off its updated styling and redesigned 18-inch wheels, but didn't unveil its interior or mechanical upgrades until today at the LA Auto Show. Eager to show off its latest arrival, Honda allowed me to check out and drive the new coupe a few weeks ago.

The interior, which was hidden beneath heavily tinted glass at SEMA, features new colors, upgraded seating materials and new technology. The interior themes are now more color coordinated and feature upgraded Tricot soft weave. Black is the standard interior color, with a choice of black or gray seats. A new display audio system is also found on the EX/EX-L trims. The seven-inch capacitive-touch screen, with a matte finish to reduce the annoyance of greasy fingerprint marks, allows users to not only tap once for a function, but to double-tap, slide, flick and pinch - as if they are using a familiar smartphone or tablet. The new infotainment interface not only accepts USB and Bluetooth data exchange, but has also been configured with HDMI for future upgrades. Some of you may have also noticed the exterior mirrors on the SEMA car, as they were fitted with cameras for Honda's blind spot minimizing Lanewatch system. It is now offered on the Civic Coupe for EX trims and above.
Mechanically, the new Civic Coupe rides on an upgraded suspension system that features revised spring rates (front up by four percent, rear up by three percent), a stiffer rear stabilizer (up by 25 percent) and larger 16-inch wheels (wearing 205/55R16 tires). The engineering objective was to improve handling and responsiveness while flattening cornering. According to Honda, the tweaks should give the Civic Coupe better linear steering feel than either the Hyundai Elantra or the Ford Focus.
It was the early 1990s when the last Honda Civic Wagon graced our shores, looking more like a squat five-door hatchback with an extra dose of charm. Well, Honda debuted the newest Civic Wagon Tourer at the Frankfurt Motor Show today, but, as we reported last month, it's a European model that will go on sale there early next year. There's still no word of it coming to the US.

The Civic Tourer was designed by Honda's European studio, and its overall look comes across as more muscular, sporty and stylish than both the sedan and two-door coupe, with bulging fenders and revised windows. Adrian Killham, large project leader for the Civic Tourer, has commented on the styling, saying, "Recently launched cars have tended to follow a similar style. The Civic Tourer has a different balance and appeal." We appreciate the sentiment, and the Tourer's shape is a big reason why we like it.
But we also like the 22 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up, which grows to a gargantuan 59 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. The big Civic will be powered by either a 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with i-VTEC or a 1.6-liter Earth Dreams i-DTEC diesel engine. Manual and automatic transmissions will be offered.
One of the most recent yet notable additions to the modern vehicle's growing suite of fuel-saving technologies is the humble start-stop system. It's rather simple - when the vehicle is stopped, the engine shuts off. It then fires back up when the driver starts to take his foot off the brake or step on the clutch. For one of the most important fuel sippers of the year, though, start-stop tech is a no-go.
Honda will not be offering the system on the North American-spec, non-hybrid Fit despite it being a standard item on both the hybrid (pictured above) and gas-only Japanese domestic models. According to Honda, it's ostensibly due to the momentary lag, that occurs when the gas engine re-fires and power is available. The start-stop-equipped Fits "will lose at stoplights to V6s," Nobuhiko Shishido, the lead powertrain engineer for the Fit, told Automotive News. This is just an observation on our part, but unless the new Fit turns up with dramatically more than the current car's 117 horsepower, it'll "lose at stoplights" regardless of whatever fuel-saving features are fitted.
The other issue Honda sees is more realistic. In the world of the EPA, stop-start systems are not taken into account in fuel economy testing. That makes the cost-adding technology a tough sell for US consumers who are forced to take a dealer's word on real-world economy gains over the milage numbers on the window sticker. That said, wouldn't it at least make sense to offer start-stop as an option? Have your say in the Comments below.
