1996 Honda Civic del Sol VTEC 2dr Coupe


Just hit 200K asked wife about a new car, Daggers flew. SO time for a new timing belt, going to have seats upgraded and a paint job. Nobody builds a car like Honda 200k still runs like new uses no oil and 30mpg on premium of course.
Have never replaced anything, except tires Batteries and belts. A 5 speed standard shift.

I know gramps drives easy. Wrong! WE live in TX speed limit 70 here 80 mph West TX. If your not running 90 your in the way. THis is one fun car and what can I say 200k and we are keeping it.

Is it a soft riding blimpmobile. Nope It is a fun little roadster; Can you travel in it? with a good friend and hard bottom yes WE have done 900 mile trips in one day;

Best Features

Hard top convertable, Top is light easy to put in the huge trunk and still pack for a weeks trip. Great for two people but make sure you like each other as your up close and personal.

Worst Features

Bring it back. Could use some in the cab storage space and cup holders. It is a little tight in there on a long trip. if you can't hold it and drive it goes in the trunk.
