Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Down on the Street: Prestine Honda Civic Mk1

It is just a joy to bring my son to school everyday. For almost two years now I’ve been passing either a Honda Accord Mk2 or a Honda Civic S Mk2 (or both!) at the same parking lot. Of course I was very thrilled to see another nostalgic Honda appearing in that very same parking lot:

Yes, a little red Honda Civic Mk1! A 1200 automatic to be a bit more precise. ;)

A bit more up close you can really make out it is in excellent condition:

Those KN Jupiter wheels really suit the car well. Clearance with the fenders may be a bit to wide, but if the springs are stiff enough it should not really matter… Also the periodically correct, probably old new stock, rear window louvres and Kamei front lip look awesome!

At first I thought the Civic would replace either the Accord or the Civic Mk2 but in the past month I’ve seen them alternating each other on a daily basis.

    Hey guys,

    always nice to find one of your cars on the web when you are just scrolling the internet :)

    This red one is still mine. The other 2 cars banpei is talking about are both sold 1,5 years ago. This one is my favourite.

    Cheers André

      Great to found your way here on Christmas-eve! ;)
      All three of them are really nice cars, but I agree with you: the red mk1 is the best of them.
      BTW: I haven’t seen any of your Hondas there lately. Have you moved since?
