Kingbox 1 of 12: 1991 Honda Civic
As a part time white v-neck t-shirt afficianado and full-time street racer once said: Ask any racer, any real racer. It don’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning’s winning. A long haired Scotsman concured with his opinion when screamed “There can be only one!”…but that was after decapitating a bunch of people and right before some mysterious lighting swirled around…ANYWAY, I’m getting off topic here. What is ON-TOPIC is the fact that the Honda Civic won the original Car and Driver 12-crapbox competition from 1992. The funny part is that C&D got this correct (something that the mass market mags almost never do) because in my searches I found zero Eagle Summits for sale, and only one Plymouth Sundance, but an overwhelming abundance of Civics offered in various condition across just about every car sales site. Today’s Civic is more yuppie college professor and less fast n furious (at least that is what the public radio and Kucinich for president bumper stickers would lead you to believe) but its got a manual gearbox and is offered for cheap. Find this 1991 Honda Civic hatchback offered for $4000 in Palo Alto, CA via craigslist.

What do you guys think — did C&D get the rankings correct? Comment below.
There was a time in my life when I wouldn’t have considered anything less than the top sport spec on any car at the dealership. CRX DX? No way. Civic LX? Nope. Gotta be Si or SiR or SE-R or whatever that marquee denotes with the most brio.
Nowadays, these look great to me. The scourge of the testosterone addled young man has ruined 99% of the higher spec econoboxes so these are the best alternative.
No pix of the inside. Better collect the pizza crusts first. With that bumper sticker the seller is limiting his buyer pool. No red blooded commie hating America First true patriot would want to be caught dead in this effeminate intersectional crap box.
I think that his buying pool is pretty good till the Altamont. East of the Altamont is another story.
When you see the windmills, you know where you are.
The Kucinich and NPR stickers tell me this was serviced regularly at the dealer and never abused. Also “Practice Random Acts of Kindness” is a sentiment that we’d all benefit from.
If you bought it you could hang some truck nuts on it, let people you’re not down with female stuff.
Spoken like a true toga wearer! And we dont lissen to no KQED! You’d have to put a manly pintlel hitch on the back, THEN you could hang the Bull balls on it!
