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.
