Roadster re-born

1995 Honda Civic del Sol VTEC 2dr Coupe


I went 40+ years between "roadsters" & this is wayyyy better than the old English/Italian cars. A little hard to get into, but much more leg/head room than any modern convert I tried. Handles amazing; quick, but always feels like there should be 1 more gear. Unbelievably tight for 13 years & 160K miles. It rains a lot where I live so you better be sure the windows are up, but it doesn't leak when they are. Much less wind turbulence with top off & windows down than any convert I've ever been in. Can't wait for next summer!! My wife loves it despite low entry & she's >60 too.

Best Features

Targa top, rear window. Slick gear box, smooth clutch.

Worst Features

Jump seat big enough for our Corgi woulda been nice, but it does hold the CD changer OK. Road noise makes stereo hard to hear, but so what? Who cares about cup holders with the top 'down'?
