    Default Curbside Classic - When Honda's Mojo Was Working: 1980-1983 Honda Civic

    Yesterday's piece* about Honda's slippage left little doubt that its mojo ain't quite what it used to be. But there was a time when Honda was on fire, and could do (almost) no wrong. The gen 1 Civic was like a little cherry bomb lobbed into a Weight-Watcher's convention. Tiny, tinny, rude and crude as [...]

    Very good read.

    Honda's mojo is still working for me. I have four Gen II Civic
    hatchbacks and am still lusting for a station wagon.

    I got a kick out of the link above. I knew JT would be posting his
    latest in response ;-). I wish I had more space and slightly better
    tools so I could get into, I dunno, fixing and re-selling these
    classics. Maintaining my 2003 Civic is my sanity in the Dickensian-
    world of middle age with relatives and others fighting over
    inheritances, who is not going to look after whom in their old age,
    and so on. Off to the junkyard where they have a newly arrived 01-05
    Civic for me to get parts from. :-)

    You just live in the wrong area. Move to TX and finding space is that
    great of a problem.

    The thing about Gen II Civics that impresses me most is the simple yet
    elegant engineering. So much easier to work on as opposed to the modern
    stuff Honda included. Cheap yet plentiful parts with the exception of
    some plastic items.

    So, shuck the crazy California lifestyle and come on down...
