    I know, big step down from Ferrari, but the fun of a car built with parts from all different cars cannot be denied. The nickname for my Civic is Frank, as in Frankenstein. It's like having an old hot-rod but one that actually works

    I have an Accord, doesn't really make me a 'Honda guy' though.

    See "My Garage"

    Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but I'm a huge Honda guy. If you are in Southern California you can see my '87 CRX Si at the www.japaneseclassiccarshow.com

    Though reliable my girlfriends civic is a boring car. The steering is so light i imagine it's resistance comes from only a rubber band. My camry is equally boring but something about it's solid and refined build leaves me with warm feelings about it.

    No axe to grind with Honda but i never felt any connection to them.

    Yeah, Honda is trying hard to be the Beige Car Company. Seems to be working for them. But their engineering is still exceptional.

    And the current Civic Si is still a great value for a 15:1 power to weight ratio.

    lol @ beige car company. agree, the cars have phenomenal engineering, and seem to last forever.

    I do like the Civic Si and would own one if it was available in a 5-door hatchback. love that 8k RPM VTEC :D

    Honda started as a motorcycle company - I own a 1967 Honda CL77 Scrambler!

    Love the NSX and the S2000 - would be a nice addition to the garage :)

    I drove a 2000 NSX, white with black (very rare combo) for a few weeks last year.

    Was selling it for a friend, her dad passed and left it to her, sad story. But she was happy to see it being driven and then see it gone to give some closure.

    I loved the car and it was comfortable as a daily driver for a few weeks. Drew a ton of looks, even from the Vette crowd.

    Mmmm I must say the new cr-z 6 speed is one fantastic car to drive. It really is. I can see it replacing the cr-x. But if I am honest. Nismo is the way to go if you are looking at the far east. :p

    I really like Honda. So far I've had a white '94 Accord EX, a silver 2001 Civic LX coupe & a blue 2004 Accord EX V6 coupe.

    I had an '88 Accord Sedan, '94 Accord Coupe, and now Daily an '01 Accord Coupe. All have been absolutely bullettproof. Although,the '94 was not nissan z proof, and was totalled when one decided to not look both ways before pulling out in the street.
